The Dermatology Clinic administers a full line of safe and effective injectable skin treatments, including long-lasting Radiesse volumizing filler. Radiesse provides immediate, natural-looking results that last long after your initial treatment. We perform this minimally invasive procedure within the comforts of our office, usually in less than 30 minutes, and most patients immediately return to their routine.

What Is Radiesse?

Radiesse is a fast-acting dermal filler that effectively smooths moderate-to-severe facial folds and wrinkles. This FDA-approved skin treatment delivers a unique combination of benefits that set it apart from similar products. Patients can enjoy immediate results as Radiesse adds volume and reshapes the skin to diminish wrinkles. Radiesse also stimulates the production of natural collagen to help you maintain a healthy, youthful appearance well into the future.

Calcium hydroxyapatite, the mineral-like compound known as Radiesse, is one of the best studied dermal fillers on the market. The biosynthetic material rarely causes allergic reactions, and it has a long-standing record of safety and effectiveness. It’s often preferred in reconstructive and dental surgery when natural, long-lasting results are needed.

How Does Radiesse Work?

A Radiesse injection contains a water-based gel solution full of microscopic balls of calcium hydroxylapatite. Once injected, the gel helps to distribute the tiny spheres throughout the treatment area evenly. The calcium hydroxylapatite particles, which occur naturally in your bones, work with your existing skin tissue to provide immediate volume.

After treatment, your tissue continues to reform, correct, and heal. The body absorbs the water-based carrier solution and metabolizes the microspheres of calcium hydroxylapatite, which triggers a long-term increase in collagen production. This unique process is the reason Radiesse delivers long-lasting, natural results.

What Areas Respond Best to the Procedure?

We offer Radiesse as an effective way to help diminish signs of aging in the most troublesome areas of the face. It’s an excellent choice to re-volumize the cheek area and smooth out the jawline. Radiesse is also used to restore volume in the back of the hands, and it’s a successful part of many chin- and cheek-augmentation procedures.

How Long Does Radiesse Last?

Most patients are satisfied with the long-lasting results of their Radiesse treatments. The body begins to produce new collagen in as little as four weeks and continues the production for 12 months or longer, according to studies. In clinical trials, results last 12 to 18 months on average. In some cases, the effects of Radiesse are still evident two years after the injection.

Radiesse is a safe and effective cosmetic treatment for most individuals, and it can be used in combination with other injectables. Our experienced physicians and aestheticians are here to review your options so you can make an informed decision.
