How can I get rid of puffiness from Radiesse and Restylane injections?

lst visit to dermatologist resulted in injection of radiesse in lower eye area. Puffiness still existed. 2nd visit to dermatologist resulted in injection of restylane. Puffiness still exists. What should I do now to get rid of the puffiness under the eyes. I am a 56 yr old woman in fairly good health. thank you

I think this is a situation where you need a second opinion from someone good in your area.  If you don’t know who to turn to, see our recommendations on this site, ask your primary care doctor, or check with at least 10 friends to see if there’s any agreement among them. 

It’s impossible to answer your excellent question without knowing when they were injected, where they were injected, how much was injected and looking at you now.   Good luck!!

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?!
