Radiesse Aftercare Instructions:
Application of an ice pack or cold compress to the injection area after Radiesse treatment may help reduce swelling. If swelling or redness persists after 48 hours, please contact your physician. It is normal to feel a “firmness” in your injection area for the first few days after treatment. Over time, the area will soften, leaving you a natural looking result.
Many patients immediately return to their normal routine / activities. However, you should check with your physician for his/her recommendation. Makeup may be applied shortly after treatment if no complications are present, and using gentle application. Check with your physician for further recommendations.
The injection area may be gently washed a few hours after treatment. Avoid aggressive scrubbing or rubbing. Sunbathing or excessive UV exposure should be avoided until the redness or swelling has subsided. Do not sleep on the treated area; try to sleep on your back, as the filler is moldable for two weeks after injection, and diminishes with massaging or other pressure over the area.
Immediately report any worsening, persistent symptoms or side effects to your physician.
