Radiesse Okay If I Have UCTD Along With Dysautonomia?

I have UCTD along with dysautonomia, I am 55 years old and active when I can be. I am also interested in Radisse for my face but am concerned for the above reasons. Any thoughts.

While fillers such as radiesse are generally safe, all bets are off with autoimmune diseases. If your UCTD is severe, filler injections carry high risk.

 

I do not think the dysautonomia is likely to cause issues except at the immediate time of injection (faintness, etc)
