Hi Dr. Rivkin,

I have had radiesse injections in my chin (as I have a very weak chin, specifically I have had 2 syringes)….
When Acquamid is FDA approved can I use it over my radiesse to get a permanent chin? I am assuming that some of the radiesse would have faded though some of it would still be there. I am worried about waiting for the radiesse to completely fade as I really really need a stronger chin.

So are there any risks in injecting acquamid over radiesse?
Thanks in advance.

good question.
the company does not recommend combining other fillers with aquamid.
reports from people who use alot of aquamid and, by necessity, have combined it with other fillers have been that it is no problem.
i have not had experience with the product outside the fda trials (where there was no mixing) but i do not see a reason why it would be a problem. companies usually recommend no mixing to avoid liability, but clinically we have not seen this to be an issue.
also, i expect that aquamid will be an excellent tool for facial sculpting and chin augmentation. the reports from abroad all attest to that.
hope that helps
