A problem after Radiesse.

I had radiesse on corners of mouth ( marienette lines?) on in chin area with bellatero in lips. Within days every pore within circumference of treated are is congested. Daily i sqeeze out each one that I can for some relief it's been 12 days now, it seams the pus filled pores are done ( I hope), but then looking today I noticed that every pore is clogged ( you can see & feel them) much like blackheads. What is going on? I am 56 have perfect smooth skin so it's not like I have acne.

This is a situation where it’s very imporant to call your, hopefully board certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon, and have them look at you.   Anytime there is a change like that after a filler is injected, the area needs to be examined.   It’s possible you have an infection.

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes! I have handpicked some of what I consider to be the best skin care products, and offer them for sale on SkinTour's shop. This is based on my team and I's testing and research at our clinic. Many of the products are in my own regimen. What could be better than using skin care products a dermatologist uses?!
