Radiesse and autoimmune disease
I don't think anyone knows the answer to this. But, autoimmune diseases are extremely common and I have injected a variety of fillers into patients with automimmune disease (and because of the high incidence, probably many of my patients do not know they have an autoimmune disease yet). I have not personally seen a problem from fillers that can be directly linked to an autoimmune disease.
There may even be some truth to the notion that you should get a better response than others because of your body's inflammatory reaction which is what is responsible for the long term persistence of many fillers. You should ask your rheumotologist, but as I said from the start, I do not think anyone knows because there is no data about this.
