Question: My facial features need freshening up, but I am not a candidate for surgery due to an immunodeficiency disorder.  If I have Radiesse injections to smooth out wrinkles, can they complicate my immune system problems?

Answer:
I personally do not see any reason why you cannot have Radiesse injections as they really should not directly impact your immune system and as long as they are injected under sterile conditions, we should not have any issues with risk of infection.  I personally believe that large boluses of the product should not be placed in any single location due to the increased risk of biofilm formation, but rather a threading technique would be more appropriate to prevent any risk of complications even though that risk is exceptionally low.  I therefore recommend that you seek out a very experienced injector so that the appropriate treatment will be performed and your risks will be minimized.
