Itching after Radiesse

Both you and your sister-in-law should contact the physician that performed the procedure.  The timing, location, and characteristics of your symptoms relate them to the injectable session.  Itching and rash are indicative of allergy, which has available and effective treatments.

Itching after Radiesse

Although it is possible it is very uncommon to be allergic to Radiesse or Lidocaine. Nothing is impossible though and since you have itching and redness associated with your injection , you should contact your dermatologist immediately to evaluate these symptoms.

Itching after Radiesse injections

I have injected hundreds of patients with Radiesse over the past eight years and have never seen or heard of the symptoms you describe. I think it unlikely that Radiesse injections has caused your itching and that both you and your sister-in-law would happen to be allergic. I suggest you see a board certified dermatologist to be evaluated for the cause of your itching.
