Radiesse® is a collagen stimulator, dermal filler. Compared to other types of dermal filler, Radiesse® stimulates the body’s process of generating collagen and encourages growth. Once Radiesse® is injected, it provides immediate volume correction and continues to work by stimulating the body to produce its own natural collagen. This helps smooth moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, and corrects volume loss for long-lasting facial contouring.
Common areas to treat: mid- and lower face
Radiesse can be diluted with saline and injected more superficially in the skin for dermal rejuvenation. Dilute Radiesse stimulates collagen and elastin production for the purposes of skin tightening and improvements in skin quality, firmness, superficial wrinkles, roughness, and overall appearance.
Common areas to treat: mid- and lower face, neck, decolletage, hands, upper arms, abdomen, upper legs, and buttocks.
What should I expect?
Swelling is common and typically resolves after 24 hours. Patients express that these injections cause very little pain and are well-tolerated. Any cosmetic injection procedure can typically show mild bruises that are quick to resolve and easy to cover with makeup. Radiesse will show an immediate cosmetic improvement on the date of the procedure, with collagen production continuing for several months after the initial treatment.
