How does Radiesse work? What to expect during the treatment?
It is injected into the skin of the hands to soften creases or folds, support areas of volume loss so they have a younger appearance.
Local numbing medication may be used to maximize your comfort during the procedure. Most patients report only mild discomfort typically associated with needle injections.
You may experience a mild to moderate amount of stinging or aching sensation post injection.
To ensure an even correction, the physician will massage the area treated, which may cause a temporary, minimal to moderate amount of redness to your skin.
Bruising at the site of injection is commonly reported the side effect. To minimize bruising avoid blood thinners such as ibuprofen, aspirin or herbal preparations prior to treatment.
Temporary minimal to moderate swelling can be expected. Swelling can persist for 2-3 weeks in some patients and may begin 1-2 weeks after the treatment. Warm packs and hand elevation can help reduce swelling.
It is normal to experience some tenderness at the treatment site for a few days.
