Radiesse’s Unique Formula Makes It an Exceptional Filler


March 13, 2024

Radiesse is a cosmetic treatment that is used to fill in wrinkles, folds, and other visible signs of aging like hollow and sunken areas. This injectable product has helped numerous patients look more youthful by providing fast and effective plumping results.

Radiesse increases skin volume to smooth away moderate and harsh facial folds. This filler can treat age-related issues around the mouth, nose, and hollow areas like the temples.

How Does This Injectable Work?

Radiesse has microspheres that are made of Calcium Hydroxylapatite. This ingredient is suspended within an aqueous gel. The gel formulation allows for the skin to absorb the formula quickly and effectively. The microspheres provide structure and new volume in the tissues.

This product is also helpful in stimulating collagen growth. Collagen is a naturally occurring protein in the body that gives skin its volume and healthy appearance. Increasing collagen growth helps the skin look more youthful.

Who Can Benefit from a Radiesse Treatment?

Anyone with aging skin and visible wrinkles on their face or hands can benefit from Radiesse treatment. Typically, candidates for this treatment are between the ages of 35 and 60, though patients who are younger or older can also benefit from Radiesse.

What Is the Injection Procedure Like?

The Radiesse injection procedure is fast and convenient:

Step 1: The doctor will first administer a local anesthetic to the treatment areas. This agent helps numb the skin so that there will not be any pain when Radiesse is injected.

Step 2: Once the anesthetic takes effect, Radiesse is injected into the skin in the targeted regions. The dosage is decided by the doctor based on the patient’s needs.

After the Radiesse Procedure Is Complete

With most patients, once the product is absorbed, it works immediately, restoring volume to areas that were previously lackluster. It produces quick results that will become apparent once you leave our office.

It is an outpatient procedure, so there’s no recovery time needed or any healing required. Swelling, if any, will reduce in little to no time at all. Best of all, the entire treatment takes less than thirty minutes. You will be back to your normal activities with no downtime. In fact, some people can even get Radiesse on their lunch break and then return to work.

Multiple Radiesse injections may be needed depending on the number of wrinkles and how severe your signs of aging are. The injection dissolves over time, so patients will need to return for follow-up treatments. Results are typically apparent for a year or longer after the date of treatment.
