What Is Radiesse?

Radiesse is an FDA-approved anti-aging injection that uses calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) compounds to add immediate volume to key facial areas. In addition to providing this temporary volume, Radiesse also stimulates the body to produce more collagen, which is key for long-term youthful results. Radiesse is an excellent filler option for people who have deep lines and wrinkles around the mouth.

Radiesse is also approved by the FDA to treat volume loss and signs of aging on the back of the hands.

How Does It Work?

Radiesse is delivered to the treatment area via a fine-tip needle; this allows the CaHA gel to instantly plump up the skin for almost-immediate relief of wrinkles and fine lines. Think of the CaHA gel as scaffolding for skin that has lost its firmness and elasticity!

Over time, the body absorbs this gel and comes to rely on its own collagen for long-term results. Most patients see these results last for about one year before needing another injection.

Is It Painful?*

Radiesse injections aren’t painful, but some patients may find them uncomfortable because the CaHA gel is delivered via needle-tip. If you think you’ll be uncomfortable during the procedure, your Derma Tech specialist can treat the injection site with ice or a numbing cream about 20 minutes before the injection takes place.

Side effects can include bruising, swelling, and slight bleeding at the injection site. These side effects are normal and should disappear within a couple of weeks.

Am I A Good Candidate For Radiesse?

You’re a good candidate for Radiesse injections if you have moderate-to-severe nasolabial folds, which are deep lines around the nose and mouth. Many people also see excellent results from their Radiesse treatments if they have volume loss around the cheeks and eyes.
