How Radiesse Works
Radiesse initially acts as a dermal filler, adding volume beneath the skin, on top of the bone. After about 3 months, the microspheres in Radiesse act as a framework for new collagen as its production increases. It is long lasting and does not require a skin test because it is made from the same mineral component found in our bones and teeth.
By supplementing your own skin’s depleted collagen, Radiesse is a safe, effective, time-tested, non-surgical wrinkle treatment that provides immediate results.
Our patients choose this treatment for a variety of reasons, including improving:
Volume deficits in the
- Lower face
Used in a modified liquified state to treat areas like
- Cellulite in legs
- Volume deficit in the butt
- Necks (Tech Neck)
Other versatilities such as:
- Depressed scars
- Marionette lines (oral commissures)
What to Expect
Our patients appreciate Radiesse treatments because they are performed right in our office and can take only about 15 minutes. First, we apply a little local anesthetic to the targeted areas. The product is then injected into the wrinkle through a tiny needle, and placed down to the bone.
Patients are up and around immediately after receiving this treatment. Any discomfort following the procedure can be treated with over-the-counter medication. The treatment site can have slight swelling and bruising. Results with Radiesse are immediate, so you can determine right away if you are happy with the results or if you would like some adjustments. Depending on the area treated, most of your improvements may last for several months or even years. Some touch-up treatments may be necessary.
Radiesse can be used alone or in conjunction with other skin rejuvenation treatments.
