Reversing the Signs of Aging
What is Radiesse?
Radiesse belongs to a category of cosmetic injectables known as dermal fillers. As a filler, its primary goal is to give your facial skin a natural lift to enhance your facial volume and fill out the fine lines and wrinkles. However, Radiesse distinguishes itself from other dermal fillers because it also activates your body’s natural collagen production capabilities, thereby making its results more durable and long-lasting than others.
Radiesse is composed of a biocompatible and biodegradable gel called calcium hydroxyapatite (CaHA). When injected into the targeted regions, it adds facial volume and fills out the fine lines, wrinkles, and scars. It also binds moisture to make your skin appear voluminous and dewy. As with most dermal fillers, the CaHA components are eventually metabolized by the body.
However, CaHA also activates your body’s natural collagen production capabilities. Collagen is your skin’s primary structural fiber — it makes your skin appear taut, firm, and voluminous, holding it upright against the force of gravity. Radiesse restores your skin’s natural collagen reserves, thereby producing long-lasting results that outlast the filler itself. Even after the CaHA is metabolized, your face continues looking firm and voluminous.

Who Are the Ideal Candidates for Radiesse?
Radiesse is meant for patients with early or moderate signs of aging on the hands or face. You should consider Radiesse injections if you want to correct the wrinkles or loss of volume in your face or hands while increasing your body’s natural collagen reserves. However, you shouldn’t use Radiesse if you’re pregnant, nursing, or have a history of severe allergies and bleeding disorders.
What Happens During the Radiesse Treatment?
Our cosmetic provider reviews your medical history and discusses your cosmetic goals to curate the ideal treatment plan. They clean the treatment areas with an antiseptic solution and deliver Radiesse into the strategically-chosen locations via ultrafine injections. The treatment duration depends on the number of treatment areas.
What Does Radiesse Recovery Involve?
You might experience mild swelling, redness, and irritation around the injection sites for a few days, but you can resume most of your daily activities immediately.
When Do the Results Appear? How Long Do the Results Last?
You’ll notice the results immediately, but you’ll truly appreciate the results once the side effects dissipate in a few days. Furthermore, the results will continue improving over several months as your body gradually increases your natural collagen reserves. The final results last for 12 to 18 months, but you can opt for maintenance treatments.
