Radiesse in Patients with Autoimmune Disorders

 
Hi and thank you for your question! While there is no hard evidence, there is a theoretical possibility that stimulatory fillers such as Radiesse might interfere with immune system. Additionally, weak immune system might reduce the effectiveness of these fillers. Hence, use of hyaluronic acid fillers is preferred in patients with autoimmune disorders. I hope it helps and good luck!
