A Collagen-Stimulating Dermal Filler

Although Radiesse is a dermal filler, it stands apart from others because it triggers your body to build new collagen, which not all dermal fillers do. This semi-permanent, highly effective volumizing treatment plumps the skin, firms loose facial skin, and decreases wrinkles.

Key Benefits of Radiesse 

  • Provides youthful volume to the face and hands
  • Stimulates your body’s production of natural collagen
  • Lifts sagging facial skin such as the cheeks
  • Reduces the appearance of nasolabial folds and marionette lines
  • Better defines lax jowls
  • Volumizes the backs of the hands
  • Provides more lift and has staying power than most dermal fillers
  • Achieves a natural-looking outcome
  • Delivers instant results as well as gradual volume improvement 
  • Provides Long-lasting results (up to two years)

How Does Radiesse Work?

When Radiesse is injected, it immediately begins creating an under-the-skin “scaffold” at the same time that it stimulates your body’s collagen-creating process. Radiesse is made of gel that houses calcium microspheres that are suspended within the gel. These microspheres metabolize within the body as the Radiesse is absorbed, leaving behind plumper, more youthful-looking skin.

What are Radiesse Treatments Like?

Before the injections begin, we will clean and prep your skin. Using a needle, the injections will be administered beneath the skin — a process that takes 10-15 minutes. The Radiesse will be mixed with lidocaine, a local anesthetic to help numb discomfort during the injections, before it is administered.

Downtime and Results

It’s recommended to reduce the risk of unnecessary bruising by refraining from taking blood-thinners before treatment and applying ice or cold compresses afterward. Keep the area elevated and minimize strenuous activities. 

  • Daily activities can be resumed immediately after treatment (see above to minimize bruising)
  • Because Radiesse is a thick consistency, the needle is larger and may bruise the skin more
  • You may experience some redness, bruising, and swelling for approximately three days
  • Your skin may temporarily appear unbalanced, over-filled, or lumpy
  • Results are visible at one to two weeks and can last up to over one year

Who is a Good Candidate for Radiesse?

Radiesse is excellent for most patients who want a long-lasting dermal filler with plenty of lift to enhance the cheekbones, temples, and jawline, as well as those seeking to correct deep nasolabial folds. 

Radiesse is not recommended for those who are pregnant, breastfeeding, under the age of 18, or for individuals who have an allergy to the ingredients.
