Please help! I had Radissee injected on my nose bridge about 2 weeks ago (you can see the 2 injection sites on the attached picture). It left me raised bumps. Since I'm afraid of getting scars, I rub on neosporin after the procedure so maybe it's the antibiotics that's causing it. I also know that it might be the poor technique of the injector but I really wanted to know how to resolve this. Should I ice it, massage it, use mederma, etc.? Any professional advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Injection site bump
I would stop using Neosporin and follow up with the Dr. that injected; most swelling will subside in 2 wks from initial injection.
Radiesse - How to Resolve Bump After Needle Injection?
It's hard to say for sure from this photo - it could be the material itself (in which you'll basically have to wait for it to dissolve on its own) or reaction from the injections (it'll go down on its own) or reaction from the Neosporin (stop using that). Or, of course, some combination. You should touch base with your plastic surgeon and, if necessary, get one or two additional consults just to make sure you're not missing anything else. It will probably just have to get better on its own, which it will, though it will take a while.
I hope that this helps and good luck,

There is no way to dissolve Radiesse. This may be product that will dissolve over time. Kenneth Hughes, MD Los Angeles, CA

The bumps appear to be Radiesse. Best to discuss your concerns with your injecting physician. Good luck and be well.
Bump after Radiesse
Stop using Neosporin. It's intensely irritating and many people become allergic to it over time. I would suggest you go back to your injector for an evaluation. It's hard to say if those bumps are swelling or actual pockets of product from your photo. So it would be best to be evaluated in person by your injector. Leave it alone until then.
