What Is Radiesse?
Commonly described as a wrinkle filler, Radiesse is a cosmetic injectable that visibly plumps the skin. Once injected, it works immediately by replenishing lost volume in the treatment area.
This added volume can give you a lifted and refreshed appearance. It also helps smooth away stubborn lines, wrinkles, and folds.
Your results can improve over time because the formula stimulates collagen production. Collagen is a beneficial protein that occurs naturally in your body. In your skin, the collagen acts like scaffolding to support youthful elasticity and structure. As your body naturally absorbs and metabolizes Radiesse, only your healthy new collagen will remain.
Radiesse offers many benefits, such as:
- Instant, natural-looking results
- Continued improvement due to collagen production
- Results that may last a year or more
- High patient satisfaction
Where Can Radiesse Be Used on the Face?
Radiesse is a versatile injectable that can be safely administered to many different areas. It is FDA-approved to smooth moderate-to-severe facial wrinkles and folds and to correct volume loss in the back of the hands.
Radiesse is an ideal way to improve the appearance of:
- Smile lines (nasolabial folds)
- Marionette lines
- Chin wrinkles
- Pre-jowl folds
- Corners of the mouth
Radiesse for Hand Rejuvenation
The backs of your hands tend to show signs of aging before other parts of your body. Over time, your natural fat cushions begin to fade and your skin becomes thinner. These changes make your veins, bones, and tendons stand out.
Thankfully, Radiesse can help! Radiesse is the first and only filler that is FDA-approved to correct volume loss in the hands. It’s a quick in-office treatment that can make your hands look younger.
Radiesse can refresh the look of your hands by:
- Restoring lost volume
- Minimizing the visibility of veins and tendons
- Making skin look smoother
Is Radiesse Right For Me?
Our experienced medical professionals will determine if Radiesse is right for you during your cosmetic consultation. They will take the time to understand your concerns and goals. Additionally, they will discuss your relevant medical history to ensure that you are a good candidate.
You may be an ideal candidate for Radiesse if you:
- Want to fade wrinkles, lines, and folds
- Are dealing with volume loss in your face and hands
- Want a non-surgical solution
- Are looking for instant results
- Are not pregnant or breastfeeding
Is there any swelling involved with Radiesse?
There can be some swelling after Radiesse injections, but not usually enough to require downtime. The cosmetic effect of swelling is subtle, so you can feel comfortable going to work and to social engagements. Generally, this side effect subsides in 2 to 3 days.
What should you not do after Radiesse?
For the first 24 hours after your Radiesse treatment, you should avoid strenuous exercise and touching the treatment area. Also avoid sun exposure and heat, such as using a sauna or hot tub. Finally, refrain from wearing makeup.
How long does it take for Radiesse to settle?
Radiesse works a little differently than other common dermal fillers. This product can provide nearly immediate improvements for some patients. However, most people notice a subtle enhancement in tissue volume over the first three days after their appointment. The full effect of Radiesse injections may be most noticeable a week to 10 days after treatment but can continue to improve for 2 to 4 weeks.
Can I combine Radiesse with other procedures?
Yes. In fact, people often combine various injectables, even different dermal fillers, in a single appointment. Used concurrently, injectables can achieve more profound results across multiple areas of the face, neck, or hands. When consulting with an experienced professional, you can gain insight into your skin and what it may respond to the best. When you visit us for cosmetic injectables, you can expect your provider to listen carefully to your concerns and desired outcome and to match your treatment plan to meet them.
Is Radiesse painful?
Radiesse injections are administered using a fine-gauged needle. The provider may apply a topical anesthetic to the skin prior to injections. If you are concerned about discomfort, talk to your injector ahead to discuss your thoughts. They may have suggestions to help improve your pain tolerance during your appointment. While Radiesse does involve multiple injections just beneath the skin, most patients do not find the process particularly painful. It is generally described more as mild discomfort.
Is there any recovery involved with Radiesse?
No. Although you may experience mild swelling and bruising, there is no need to take time off work or other light activities to recover from Radiesse injections. Your provider will discuss temporary activity limitations with you to ensure that you achieve the best results with minimal side effects.
