Our skin is smooth and resilient when we’re young. Unfortunately, the aging process changes the contours of the skin. The body produces less collagen, the most important element that supports the skin. It is a protein essential for skin, bone structure, muscle maintenance, and more. Without this, the skin may appear lax, hollow, and aged. Radiesse works to reverse these signs of aging by providing an effective solution for rejuvenating the face. Radiesse works beneath the skin to restore age-related volume loss and resolve common signs of aging like wrinkles, fine lines, and folds. This injectable contains calcium hydroxyapatite (CaHA), a water based-gel that restores volume to the skin. The calcium-rich gel goes to work immediately to provide the skin scaffolding foundation to support fibroblastic growth and collagen production. Clinical studies show the Radiesse treatment enjoys high patient satisfaction because it consistently delivers natural, supple skin that can be enjoyed for up to a year. 
Radiesse is a safe, convenient treatment that helps patients bask in their inner beauty free of facial wrinkles, creases, or acne scars. It is a highly customizable treatment that targets specific trouble areas and firms the skin. Patients can also look forward to a:
In under an hour, patients see a considerable improvement in the appearance of their skin. Patients who prefer not to undergo extensive surgery that requires incisions and a lengthy recovery process may benefit from Radiesse.
Minimally Invasive Process
Radiesse uses fine needles or delicate cannulas to carefully inject the solution beneath the surface of the skin. No incisions are required.
This exciting treatment brings immediate, impressive results with continued results developing over time. Final results can last for up to a year.
Men and women looking for a reliable way to eliminate mild to moderate cases of wrinkles and volume loss should consider Radiesse. It is an excellent option for those experiencing prominent lines on the forehead, cheeks, mouth, or near the eyes. Although the treatment is safe and popular, it may not be for everyone. Patients should be healthy individuals free from certain underlying medical conditions. Other criteria that patients should meet are:
- Those after natural-looking results
- Unhappy with the age-related issues like wrinkles, creases, and acne scars
- Not currently pregnant or breastfeeding

Radiesse is a straightforward process that needs little preparation. We recommend you temporarily stop taking certain medications such as anti-inflammatories, blood thinners, and other medications in the week before treatment. This helps avoid the risk of unnecessary bruising or bleeding at the injection site. Above all else, come to the appointment with clean skin.
Before we begin, the treatment area will be cleansed. The procedure may start with applying a topical anesthetic such as lidocaine to numb the injection site for added comfort. Once that has taken effect, our friendly staff member gently injects Radiesse using a fine-medical grade needle in strategic areas in small amounts. Radiesse contains calcium hydroxyapatite (CaHA)—a water-based gel made up of phosphate and calcium. When injected, the hydrogen, oxygen, and carbon inside the gel create scaffolding support for the dermis that stimulates connective tissue and collagen production.  As a result, you achieve firmer, more youthful-looking skin in under an hour. Your new supple skin can be enjoyed for up to a year.
Radiesse is a quick solution that fills in areas where it counts while providing a convenient and effective experience for patients. As soon as we complete your session, you are free to leave our care and resume your daily routine. Mild to moderate bruising, redness, and swelling after Radiesse injections occur shortly after the treatment but will subside after time a few days. , Tenderness at the injection sites may also be felt for a few days after treatment. You can apply an ice pack to the treated area to manage discomfort. Avoid touching your face or applying makeup for 24 hours to avoid the risk of infection at your healing injection sites.
The benefits of Radiesse will appear gradually. Immediately after treatment, patients will see a profound difference in their face, but the slight swelling may block results for 3-5 days. After two weeks, the Radiesse formula will have settled in place and begun stimulating collagen production for firmer skin.
