Lines, wrinkles, and the gradual loss of facial volume are often seen as the inevitable signs of aging. These subtle shifts in your appearance can lead to a look that may not align with how you feel on the inside. If you’re searching for a solution that can restore volume and smooth out wrinkles, Radiesse could be the treatment you’ve been looking for.

What Is Radiesse?
Radiesse® Volumizing Filler is unique in that it is both a biostimulator and a filler. It is the only filler that immediately replenishes lost volume and stimulates the production of your own natural collagen for long-lasting results. Made out of calcium hydroxylapatite (which naturally occurs in the body) and suspended in a gel, Radiesse remains soft and natural feeling.
How Does Radiesse Work?
Radiesse is a dermal filler that does more than just fill in lines and wrinkles. It’s formulated with calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres, which serve as a scaffold under the skin. As the microspheres begin to integrate with your own tissue, they stimulate the natural production of collagen. Over time, these particles are safely metabolized by your body, leaving behind your own naturally produced collagen to maintain the enhanced volume and smoother texture. It’s a dual-action approach to rejuvenation, offering immediate and long-lasting results.
What Areas Are Treated With Radiesse®?
- Smile lines: Radiesse effectively smooths out the nasolabial folds that run from the sides of your nose to the corners of your mouth. This treatment can offer you a fresher appearance without changing the natural expressions of your face.
- Marionette lines: These lines that extend from the corners of the mouth down towards the chin can be softened with Radiesse. The filler provides a subtle lift, reducing the appearance of these lines.
- Corners of the Mouth: With Radiesse, the downward turning of the mouth corners can be corrected. The treatment helps to restore a more neutral, youthful contour to this area.
- Pre-Jowl: Radiesse can effectively fill the pre-jowl area, which is the space that forms on either side of the chin as we age. This results in a more defined jawline and a balanced facial structure.
- Chin Wrinkles: If wrinkles and fine lines on your chin are of concern, Radiesse can smooth them out. The treatment provides immediate volume and stimulates collagen production for longer-lasting effects.
What Are the Benefits of Radiesse?
Radiesse offers durability that extends beyond many other dermal fillers. Patients often experience the effects for a year or more, thanks to the natural collagen stimulation. This longer duration can make the treatment a cost-effective choice for maintaining facial rejuvenation.
A Versatile Treatment
Radiesse injections are not limited to treating a single area; they can be used on various parts of the face and even on the hands. This multi-use aspect makes Radiesse a versatile dermal filler, suited for addressing multiple aging concerns in one appointment.
Immediate and Long-Term Effects
Radiesse serves as a biostimulator as well as a dermal filler, providing both immediate and long-term benefits. Upon injection, it instantly adds volume to the skin. Over time, the stimulation of natural collagen production helps maintain these results.
Comes With Minimal to No Downtime
With Radiesse filler, most patients can return to their regular activities almost immediately after the treatment. This minimal downtime makes it convenient for those who cannot afford to take extended time off work or social engagements.
Provides Natural-Looking Results
Radiesse injections work in harmony with your body’s natural collagen. The resulting increase in volume and reduction in wrinkles appear organic, not “overdone” or artificial.
No Animal Products Used
Radiesse is formulated without the use of animal products, reducing the risk of allergic reactions for patients. This feature makes it a more universally accepted option for those concerned about allergens or animal-derived ingredients.
What to Expect From Your Radiesse Treatment
Before Your Radiesse Treatment
Before receiving Radiesse injections, you will have a consultation with us to assess your suitability for the treatment and discuss your aesthetic goals. It’s important to disclose your full medical history and any medications you are currently taking. There may be certain guidelines you’ll need to follow, such as avoiding blood-thinning medications or supplements for a few days before the treatment to minimize the risk of bruising.
During Your Radiesse Treatment
On the day of the treatment, your skin will be cleansed and prepped. A topical numbing cream may be applied to enhance your comfort. Using a fine needle, the Radiesse filler is then strategically injected into the targeted areas. The treatment is generally quick, often taking less than an hour. The treatment is designed to be minimally invasive, allowing for immediate results with little to no downtime.
After Your Radiesse Treatment
After the injections, you may experience some redness, swelling, or bruising at the treatment sites; these are usually minor and dissipate within a few days. Most people can return to their regular activities immediately. You should avoid strenuous exercise for 24 to 48 hours post-treatment. Then, your newly stimulated collagen will continue to develop over the coming months, contributing to longer-lasting results.
How Fast Can I Expect Results?
The results of a Radiesse treatment are immediate. You’ll notice an instant improvement in the treated areas as the dermal filler adds volume and smooths out wrinkles right away. These results can continue to improve in the coming months.
How Long Does Radiesse Last?
Results are usually expected to last as long as 6 to 12 months. This duration makes Radiesse filler an appealing choice for those looking for long-lasting yet non-permanent options for facial rejuvenation.
Do Radiesse® Treatments Hurt?
Radiesse injections can pinch at each injection site. However, Radiesse+ contains lidocaine for those who are concerned about pain during treatment. For your comfort, a topical numbing cream can be applied to the area prior to being treated prior to your treatment.
What is Radiesse® Treatment Like?
Radiesse® is injected at a specific depth in the skin using a fine needle along the wrinkle line. Multiple injections will be needed to effectively fill the targeted treatment area.
