What is Radiesse?

Radiesse is a volumizing filler consisting of calcium-based microspheres suspended in gel. It is used in patients with moderate-to-severe wrinkles and marked volume loss. It is great for filling in the temples, contouring the cheeks, and plumping up hands. Radiesse is also commonly used to soften smile lines and marionettes (the lines that run from the chin to the corners of your mouth).

How Radiesse works

Radiesse is a unique filler that helps to restore your own natural collagen. It acts as a scaffold underneath the skin that provides a robust structure and stimulates your existing collagen into action. This stimulation of collagen can continue for several months after the procedure, resulting in long-lasting outcomes. Although there are many types of collagen, its main function is to provide our skin with firmness and elasticity, and it is something that our bodies begin to lose around the age of 18.

What to expect during your appointment

Our first step will be to determine whether or not Radiesse is right for you and your aesthetic goals. This will be determined during your consultation with Stephanie Gho, MS PA-C. Stephanie will customize your treatment plan to your needs and goals. If Radiesse is right for you, a series of injections will give you immediate results.* Total treatment time is approximately 30 minutes. After the injections, you may experience some swelling, redness, pain or bruising. These side effects are usually mild and subside within a few days.

What to expect from the results

Because Radiesse stimulates the growth of your own collagen, even after the gel has been metabolized by your body, results can last up to a year.* However, the location of where the product is placed is very important; when Radiesse is injected into the marionettes, it will probably not last as long as if it were injected in the temples. The number of treatments needed depends on a number of factors: how much filler was used, where it was placed and how quickly your body absorbs the product. Most patients will get a follow-up treatment in 9-12 months.
