There are a few minor side effects that can occur around the injection site, including mild bruising, swelling, redness, and tenderness. The side effects usually do not last more than a few hours, and they are typically very mild.
RADIESSE® consists of a quick injection, and doesn’t hurt more than a sting. RADIESSE® has also been approved to mix with an anesthetic called lidocaine, which further eliminates almost all discomfort.
The RADIESSE® treatment is quick. The entire procedure doesn’t take longer than an hour. In fact, many patients elect to get this procedure on their lunch break from work.
