Radiesse Filler

What is Radiesse Filler?

As we age, collagen levels in the skin deplete. This causes skin to become more relaxed, allowing for the formation of wrinkles and folds. Moisturizers, other skin care products and healthy lifestyle changes help to combat some of these problems, but they often are not enough. FDA approved Radiesse is a safe and effective treatment that makes a difference. Radiesse is a dermal filler comprised of Calcium Hydroxylapatite microspheres that increase collagen production as they are metabolized. Benefits are often noticeable for months or even years.

Who is Radiesse Filler for?

Healthy men and women between the ages of 30 and 60 are often exceptional candidates for Radiesse treatments. The dermal filler is ideal for those who want to restore volume or add contour to the cheekbones. This product is also used for nasolabial folds, where volume can also be restored, stimulate collagen production, and improve skin texture and flexibility.

What Should I Expect after Radiesse Filler?

Radiesse treatment results are often immediately visible. The treated area typically appears smoother and softer with wrinkles and folds diminished. These results are even more evident once any swelling or bruising subsides. Most people enjoy natural looking results for a year, and in some cases, they last up to 18 months before additional treatments are necessary.

What Does a Radiesse Filler Treatment Consist of?

Preparation for your Radiesse treatment is minimal. To reduce opportunities for swelling and bruising, it is advisable to avoid taking over-the-counter medications such as aspirin or ibuprofen for one week before treatment. If you take certain prescription blood thinners, your chance of bruising may increase, but do not discontinue these medications without first consulting with the prescribing physician.

Once you are comfortable in a treatment room, Dr. Janson or one of our team members will clean your skin and mark the injection sites. Radiesse is injected using a very small needle. Any discomfort is typically minimal, and it can often be controlled using a topical anesthetic, if necessary. The procedure itself takes only minutes, and you will remain awake and aware of your surroundings the entire time.

Patients can return to work and resume most normal activity immediately after Radiesse treatment. However, it is advisable to avoid strenuous activity immediately following your treatment as well as direct sun exposure for the first few days after your procedure. Do not massage the area for at least 24-hours post-treatment. Minor swelling is common, and it typically subsides within one to three days after your procedure. Managing any swelling as well as any mild discomfort is usually easily accomplished using ice packs, cold compresses, and over-the-counter medication such as acetaminophen. The procedure is generally safe, and any complications are very rare. However, if you have any concerns, contact Adam and Eve Medical Aesthetics in Scottsdale, AZ immediately for support.

Frequently Asked Questions About Radiesse Filler

Some minor swelling is common, as is redness and bruising, which generally subsides within three days after your procedure. Ice packs, cold compresses and over the counter medication such as acetaminophen is recommended.

You may notice benefits from your Radiesse treatment for months to years. Most people notice results for at least 12 months, but the effects of the treatment last longer for some people.

Radiesse is made of calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres. This substance plumps up your skin and increases collagen production when it is metabolized.

Though Radiesse treatments can last for a long time (for some people, up to 18 months!), they are not permanent. If you wish to maintain your results, you will need to repeat the treatment process when you notice your results fading.

About 12 months. Don’t worry: How much you use your hands has nothing to do with how long your results last.

No. The calcium hydroxylapatite in Radiesse has a thicker texture and is more appropriate for marionette lines, cheeks, and nasolabial folds. If you wish to plump up your lips, speak with your provider for advice on how to proceed and with which products. Dermal fillers can enhance your appearance and your quality of life with little downtime involved.

Radiesse works well on thick skin because it’s made from calcium hydroxylapatite, the same material found in natural bone, and does not affect muscle movement. At Adam & Eve Medical Aesthetics, we use Radiesse to treat the following areas:

Cheek Filler

This potent injectable was created to revitalize the midface by lifting saggy cheek skin and adding volume to hollow cheeks. It contains CaHA (calcium hydroxyapatite), which can be contoured and shaped after injection.

Butt Lift

Radiesse is a non-surgical injection that lifts and enlarges the butt. It is not a direct replacement for butt implants. Instead, it is intended for patients requiring a subtle lift, increased volume, and reduced cellulite.

Hand Rejuvenation

Radiesse can help restore a youthful appearance by softening fine lines and wrinkles while adding volume to thinning skin on the backs of hands and knuckles.

The procedure takes just 30 to 60 minutes and produces immediate results. The effects of Radiesse injections last between 18-24 months. That’s longer than the results of other injectable fillers because it’s one of the only fillers that stimulates new collagen production that lasts.

It’s essential to consult your aesthetic injector about how you can safely undergo Radiesse injection procedures. Radiesse is not recommended for patients with a history of keloids or scars that grow larger than average, heart disease or blood clots, have an allergy to lidocaine, or are pregnant or breastfeeding.

Radiesse doesn’t require downtime after treatment; you don’t need to plan any time off from work. Side effects are rare, usually mild, and usually resolve within 7 to 10 days; possible side effects including normal temporary bruising, swelling, numbness, redness, pain, itching, burning, or stinging. You can return to work immediately, although exercise is not advised for 24 hours after injections.

Radiesse is a good choice for people who want to improve the appearance of their facial or butt contours. It can correct hollow cheeks, thin lips, and sunken temples. The procedure is also effective in treating nasolabial folds (smile lines) at the corners of the mouth.

It can also treat acne scars or skin imperfections like hyperpigmentation (dark spots). If you want to treat any of these areas of your body, Radiesse may be right for you.

Radiesse is made from natural ingredients used in medicine for decades. It’s FDA-approved, and there are no severe side effects or risk of allergic reaction when used correctly by a trained professional. Radiesse can treat all skin types, including sensitive types like rosacea or acne scarring.

However, it will not prevent sun damage when applied alone. Sunscreen should always be worn daily to protect against UV rays that cause sun spots, freckles, and age spots on the face.

The number of Radiesse injections you’ll need depends on the treatment area. For example, if your cheeks are the area you want to enhance, it may take just one syringe. However, if your entire face or butt is treated, more syringes would be appropriate. It’s recommended that patients go for follow-up treatments every six months until they’re happy with their results.

Radiesse is not an anti-aging treatment, but rather a hard-working component of a larger range of treatments that comprise a complete anti-aging treatment plan to achieve your goals.
