Radiesse Affected by Other Skin Treatments?

Superficial procedures such as microdermabrasion, Silkpeel Dermalinfusion or superficial chemical peeling will not affect the results of Radiesse injections as Radiesse is injected beneath the skin and these treatments are directed toward's the skin's surface.  Skin tightening by laser is achieved by stimulating the collagen and causing collagen contraction. Radiesse also works by stimulating collagen as well.  In my practice, I prefer to avoid filler and laser treatments on the same day, but they can easily be performed on different days.

Combining Radiesse with other treatments

Because Radiesse is injected beneath the skin, it is not affected by superficial procedures such as microdermabrasion. Skin Tyte technology works by stimulating collagen, much the same as the way Radiesse works but I would recommend having this done first, before your Radiesse injections. Since Radiesse works by stimulating your skin to produce more collagen, it is injected deeper, beneath the skin to generate volume to create a lifting effect for sagging skin.
