Radiesse®

Video Procedures | Before & After Photos | FAQs | Prep for Treatment

Over time, our skin begins to display the effects of aging. Natural factors such as sun exposure, gravity, and hormones can actually speed up the aging process. Our skin begins to break down resulting in fine lines around the eyes and lips, deeper lines and grooves in the brow, and much more. One day we wake up to find that our face no longer has that youthful, vibrant appearance it once had, or that we’d like it to have.

Radiesse® FAQs

Radiesse® is a long lasting cosmetic filler that provides dramatic results for improving the appearance of facial lines, wrinkles and folds. This is a non-surgical solution to soften facial lines and wrinkles, restore volume and fullness to the skin, plump up lips, and fill in scars. Radiesse® injected into the lips can give back fullness to lips that have receded.

What is Radiesse®?
Radiesse® is long-lasting liquid injectable filler made from calcium hydroxylapatite, which is a component found in bone and teeth. Unlike collagen, which is made of animal bovine, no pretests are required to determine if you will experience any side effects or allergic reaction. Radiesse® is not absorbed by your body, thus the advantage it offers over collagen is its ability to last for years.

How many treatments will I need?
The cosmetic results you desire and the area to be treated will influence the number of treatments necessary. Typically one treatment is sufficient. Since Radiesse® is not absorbed by your body, results are long lasting. Results are visible immediately following the treatment, leaving you with a more youthful appearance.

What can I expect following treatment?
You can resume normal activities following treatment. The most commonly reported side effect has been redness and swelling at the injection site. These effects typically resolve within a few hours or, at most, a day or two. Results are immediately evident. Lines, wrinkles and folds look softer and your skin looks smooth.

What is the treatment like?
Radiesse® is injected in small amounts under your skin to fill creases, lines, wrinkles, and folds. It is also injected around the lip area to create volume, resulting in a more youthful appearance. A skin test is not necessary prior to treatment, so treatment can be performed at any time. In order to optimize your comfort, the treatment area may be anesthetized with a local anesthetic. The cosmetic results are visible immediately, bestowing you with a more youthful and invigorated look.

How long do the results last?
Depending on many factors, such as your lifestyle, age and skin structure your results may last as long as several years. You may require a touch up treatment after the first treatment to achieve your desired result.

What are the benefits of a Radiesse® treatment?

  • Immediately you will discern a smoothing of the wrinkles and folds.
  • Radiesse® will impart lift and new firmness to your skin.
  • With lip enhancement, the results will be a noticeably fuller and more sensuous contour.
  • It is not necessary for you to be tested for skin sensitivity.
  • The cosmetic results are visible immediately, bestowing you with a more youthful and invigorated look.
