Is there any way to speed up Radiesse absorption? (1 answer)
I had Radiesse injections on the bridge of my nose 3 months ago. I'm still seeing a white dot where the needle was injected. My doctor said it's the Radiesse that's caught in my dermis. Is there any way to speed up the Radiesse absorption?
Can Radiesse cause infected zits? (1 answer)
A red bump with white pus appeared after a Radiesse treatment two months ago. I didn't know exactly when it came up so the doctor who injected the Radiesse said it was a zit, and I spread infection by rubbing on it. It changes in severity each day. I tend to get cystic zits and have them lanced occasionally. The dermatologist didn't know if this was a zit or from Radiesse.

The right side developed a solid red area along the fold after Radiesse (3 answers)
I had Radiesse 5 days ago. One of the areas injected was the nasolabial folds. After 2 days, my right side developed a solid red area along the fold.
It is now 3 days later and the area is raw, dry and developing little blisters and there is a pulsating feel. I have had Radiesse many times before and never had this side effect. What happened? What can I do? I am currently taking Alleve.
