Radiesse® injectable dermal filler has become one of the most popular treatments for improving moderate to harsh wrinkles and volume loss. This innovative dermal filler provides natural-looking results in the form of smoother skin and youthful fullness. Our highly trained injectors create outstanding long-lasting results with Radiesse in Beverly Hills.
How Does Radiesse Work?
The active ingredient of Radiesse is calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA). This is a synthetic version of a substance that occurs naturally in the body, so allergic reactions are uncommon.
The CaHA microspheres provide instant volume for immediate aesthetic improvement, smoothing out wrinkles and folds. The appearance of texture deficits from acne scars, chicken pox, or trauma is also improved by raising the underlying scar tissue.
CaHA also stimulates collagen and elastin production for lasting results that improve over time. As the CaHA microspheres break down and are absorbed, new collagen and elastin are formed, sustaining the increased volume. Patients are particularly pleased with how long the benefits of Radiesse last, which is as long as 18 months on average.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Radiesse?
Patients seeking a non-surgical solution to the signs of facial aging, facial volume loss, and texture deficits are ideal candidates for Radiesse.
The added volume and bio-stimulatory effects of Radiesse that increase collagen and elastin are an effective treatment for:
- The nasolabial folds (which stretch from the sides of the nose to the corners of the mouth)
- Marionette lines (which extend downward diagonally from the corners of the mouth)
- Parentheses lines (which border the mouth)
- Acne scars or other skin texture deficits
Is a Consultation Needed for Radiesse?
A consultation is needed to examine facial anatomy and skin tissue density. A review of the patient’s medical history and use of over-the-counter and prescription medications will be completed to avoid possible problematic interactions. The patient will also learn more about the details of the Radiesse treatment process.
What to Expect During a Radiesse Procedure
After swabbing the skin with a topical disinfectant, injections of Radiesse are delivered into subdermal layers of skin tissue with microcannula tubes or fine-gauge hypodermic needles, depending on the areas of treatment. Patients are often surprised at the minimal discomfort; we provide several options for numbing to ensure maximum comfort.
What to Expect Following a Radiesse Procedure
Patients can resume regular activities right away, so there is no need for downtime or recovery following Radiesse injections. The fine gauge needle and cannula used may create minimal bruising at the injection sites. Should redness or skin irritation occur, these conditions typically resolve within a day or two.
Patients should follow all post-treatment instructions carefully. Avoid strenuous physical activities and excessive heat exposure immediately following the treatment session. Dermal fillers can migrate, so care should be taken to avoid pressure on the treated areas while sleeping for a few days.
How Much Does Radiesse Cost?
The cost of Radiesse injections varies and is determined by each patient’s customized treatment plan. A consultation will provide patients with a detailed plan, including price information.
