Radiesse: Q&AAsk a Question

I would not recommend Radiesse for the skin wrinkles of the lower eyelid as the skin is very thin in this location and the Radiesse might be visible as bumps. It can be injected underneath the muscle to give a general smoothness but, it might not help the wrinkles and it might be more risky than using a hyaluronic acid, such as Juvederm or Restylane, in this location.
Hi Susan, Best to keep your lower eye lid wrinkles and hollows away from any syringes containing Radiesse. Restylane is best for this delicate and unforgiving area. Any lump or bump with Radiesse will be your companion for a very long time in this area. Radiesse is a great filler for other facial and hand areas, but use the other R word (Restylane) under your eyes. Choose your injecting physician most carefully. Good luck and be well. Dr. P
Hi Susan, Radiesse is a great filler particularly for cheeks, facial volume loss and nasolabial folds but is not the best choice for near the eyes. In general, it can work well below the orbital rim (the bony rim of the eye socket). For fine under eye wrinkles, laser resurfacing or chemical peel can be a better choice. Consult with your local qualified physician for the best options for you. Good luck!
