Restylane and Radiesse - Post Treatment Care

  1. 1. RESTYLANE AND RADIESSE: SETTING THE EXPECTATIONS Dr. Kris Reddy FACS, Board Certified Plastic Surgeon and West Palm DERMAL Fillers expert, advises the proper selection and use of dermal fillers. To have optimal enjoyment of the treatments, it is important to have proper expectations and do proper aftercare. RestylanE and Radiesse are Dermal fillers that are injected into the skin to soften creases or folds, support areas of volume loss or contour specific facial areas.
  2. 2. What to Expect During and After Treatments *Local numbing medication may be used to maximize your comfort during the procedure. Most patients report a 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.
  3. 3. *Bruising at the site of injection is a commonly reported side effect. To minimize bruising, inform your provider if you use blood thinners such as ibuprofen, aspirin, or herbal preparations prior to your procedure. *Temporary minimal to moderate swelling can be expected, which should dissipate following injection. Some patients report dramatic reduction in swelling hours after their treatment. *It is normal to experience some tenderness at the treatment site for a few days.
  4. 4. Restylane: Post Treatment *Cold Compresses (a cloth dipped in cold water, wrung out, and applied to the injected area)may be used immediately after treatment to reduce swelling. *Avoid touching the treated area within six hours following treatment so you do not accidently injure your skin while the area is numb. After that, the area can be gently washed with soap and water.
  5. 5. *Until there is no redness or swelling, avoid exposure of the treated area to intense heat (sun lamp or sun bathing) *If you have previously suffered from facial cold sores, there is a risk that the needle punctures could contribute to another occurrence. Speak to your physician about medications that may minimize a recurrence. *Avoid taking aspirin, non-steroidal anti- inflammatory medications, St. John’s Wort, and high doses of Vitamin E supplements for one week after treatment. These agents may increase bruising and bleeding at the injection site.
  6. 6. Radiesse: Post Treatment *Apply an ice pack or cold compress to the injection area after treatment to help reduce swelling. If swelling or redness persists too long, 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 soft, natural looking result. *Many patients return to their normal routine/activities immediately but you should check with your physician for his/her recommendation.
  7. 7. *Makeup may be applied shortly after treatment if no complications are present. Apply makeup gently, avoiding strenuous rubbing of the injection area. *The injection area may also be gently washed a few hours after treatment, avoiding aggressive scrubbing or rubbing. *Sunbathing, or excessive UV exposure should be avoided until the redness or swelling have subsided. *Immediately report any worsening or persistent symptoms or side effects to your physician.
