Can i have Radiesse in cheeks after Bio-Alcamid?
I had bio-alcamid in cheeks in 2008, 2 1/2 years ago. Would now like to have Radiesse in cheeks to raise the volume. I look like i have a valley below my eyes. The doctor also said with adding volume on the cheeks, it will create a lift and help with the dark circles. The doctor wouldnt put Radiesse until i find out exactly what i had in before. Just rang my previous doctor in another country where i am from, he had told me its bio-alcamid. Back then i didnt know the long term effects this product could have. In researching i have found that when there is a permanent filler in place, i cannot put radiesse or another filler as the injection may puncture the nodule of the bio-alcamid and result in infection. But my previous doctor whom i just rang, says i can use Radiesse in the same areas as the Radiesse and bio-alcamid will be in different levels of the skin. Is this true? He also said the Radiesse will go on the superficial layer. As i am looking for volume, does this mean the Radiesse needs to go in deep?
What are yr thoughts on this? SHould i consider a different filler? A hyluronic base one like Juverderm or Perlane.
Really appreciate any advise you can give. Thanks!
