I injected radiesse in nasilabial fold of a 40 years old woman about 12 days ago.she was right after injection. But a sudden swelling apeared after 10 days of injection in her face.she had this swelling when she waked up.when i visited she had no erythem and no pain in her face. But the swlling spread to lower eyelid and the swelling was more in right side.i started antibiotic(cefixim) and prednisolon20mg daily,and visited1 day after,but there was no improvement in her signs.
What is the Reason of Sudden Onset of Swelling After 10 Days of Radiesse Injection?

Swelling after Radiesse
Sudden onset of swellinf 10 days after injection
The first thing to tihink of is infection. Does she have a fever?
Even in the absence of pain,.if the Cefixime doesn't help, I would recommend IV antibiotics. I would also consult with an Infectious diseases specialist..
Sudden appearance of swelling 10 days after injecting radiesse is infection unless proved otherwise. Continue antibiotics, broad specrum,. If it is infection you will see improvement in 72 hours after starting the antibiotics. If no response then add another antibiotic to cover all gram positive and gram negative organisms.
