Is It Contraindicated to Take Perlane at Same Site Previously Treated with Radiesse?

Layering Perlane and Radiesse

Greetings Simona~

No problem layering Perlane with Radiesse, at the same time or in subsequent visits. You definitely do not need to wait for one to wear off before injecting another type of filler.  If you are thinking about making a change from one to another, it is often best to do it before one has disappeared completely so you don't have to go through a dramatic before and can do subtle, more frequent, fine tuning treatments.

Hope that helps.

Good luck~

Perlane and other fillers

It's not uncommon to have more than one filler injected into the same area - and won't hurt layering one on the other. Perlane and Radiesse are two different fillers and discussion with your injector should help determine what treatment will be best to meet your aesthetic goals.

Perlane okay in same area as Radiesse

There is no problem with injecting Perlane into an area where Radiesse is present. In fact, I often inject a combination of fillers to achieve a better result. With fillers such as Perlane and Radiesse, you can inject them in different layers for very natural results.

Perlane + Radiesse

While Perlane and Radiesse are two very different products often used for the same indications, they can be layered over one another and it should be okay.

Perlane and Radiesse in the same areas

Yes it is generally safe to have Perlane placed in the same areas that Radiesse was previously injected.  Most of the fillers can be used in the same areas without significant risks.

Perlane is safe after Radiesse

You can switch from one filler to another. You will find that the effect from Perlane will last much less time than Radiesse.

Perlane can be used where Radiesse was used

Radiesse and Perlane can be injected at different levels, but both are deeper fillers than Juverderm Ultra or Restylane.
