Can You Have an Allergic Reaction to Radiesse?

The areas injected were nasal folds, jawline and cheek bone area. The area beside chin and jaline on one side was itchy and skin was scaley. Is this a normal reaction? 2 and half weeks since injections. The itchiness is gone and not red but was this possible an allergic reaction?

Itching and redness after radiesse

You are correct to be concerned about an allergic reaction to the Radiesse.  It is very rare, but it is possible.  I suggest you return to your treating doctor this week to have it evaluated.

Itching after Radiesse

If your skin was scaly and itchy the first thing to question is if you developed a reaction to the skin disinfectant, see your doctor to investigate.
