Radiesse Volulmizing Filler is injected into the skin to soften wrinkles or folds by adding volume. Local numbing medication is used to maximize your comfort during the procedure. Most patients report a mild discomfort typically associated with needle injections.
To ensure an even correction, Dr. Zubowski will often massage the area treated which may cause a temporary amount of redness to your skin. Bruising at the site of injection is a commonly reported side effect. To minimize bruising, please notify Dr. Zubowski if you use blood thinners such as ibuprofen, aspirin or herbal preparations prior to your procedure.
A temporary amount of minimal to moderate swelling can be expected following the treatment. This should dissipate following injection. It is normal to experience some tenderness at the treatment site for a few days.
