Radiesse Swelling

Radiesse might cause some side effects such as swelling and bruising. And it is more painful than other fillers. Swelling will typically last two to three days. Also some bruising may occur. Check with your provider to ensure a blood vessel isn't compromised.

It is normal to have swelling after Radiesse injection

+1

Typically swelling lasts 48 to 72 hours after a Radiesse injection.  For the bluish discoloration, you'll want to consult with your doctor, as it is possible that a blood vessel has been compressed by the filler.

For the lump above the eye, you can try to gently massage it, but just ensure your hands are clean (to avoid introducing infection).

In my experience, once the swelling goes down, the shape of the treated area is usually apparent.  However, Radiesse is not just a filler, it is also a collagen stimulant, which has an increasing effect up to several months.
