Injectables in a patient with Psoriasis...
Radiesse has not been known to cause any adverse reactions in patients who have Psoriasis....
Botox and/or Dysport should be considered for wrinkles around forhead and a Hyaluronic Acid (Restylane, Juvederm, or Perlane) is safest for wrinkles around the mouth. In my opinion! ;0)

Radiesse with Psoriasis
Radiesse should have no adverse effects for patients suffering from psoriasis or other frequent skin allergies.
Radiesse is fine if you have psoriasis
Radiesse injections should have no negative impact on your psoriasis. Since psoriasis can be exacerbated by stress, a positive impact may be indirectly achieved. If you feel your appearance is improved, you may feel less stress!

Radiesse is Safe if you have Psoriasis
There should be no adverse effects of Radiesse injections for patients suffering from psoriasis or frequent skin allergies. Radiesse is injected deeper, beneath the skin to generate more volume to create a much better lifting effect for sagging skin. It works by stimulating your body to produce more collagen. Because Radiesse is injected below the skin it is not likely to affect psoriasis or skin allergies. However, it would be a good precaution to have your treatments done by a board certified dermatologist so your skin issues can be addressed and appropriately treated, if necessary.
