I am interested in getting Radiesse injections but I heard that they can cause lumps under the skin injected. Is this true of all fillers, why does this happen and how can you avoid it?
It is true that if a filler is not put in smoothly and massaged and put into the right level of the skin, you can get bumps. But again, it is a matter of technique and if a surgeon has good experience with Radiesse, Juvederm or any of the other fillers and places it in the proper area and the patient does some massage to these areas, lumps are extremely rare and the fillers get excellent results.
