What is Radiesse Filler?

Radiesse is a cosmetic dermatology procedure primarily used to reduce wrinkles and add volume to the face. It’s a popular non-surgical option for those looking to enhance their appearance without undergoing surgery.

Radiesse injections are injectable dermal fillers known for providing long-lasting results by stimulating natural collagen production.

If you’re seeking a non-invasive way to achieve a more youthful look, Radiesse may be a suitable option for you.

What are Radiesse Injections Used For?

Radiesse injections are commonly used for facial rejuvenation purposes. They’re most often used to:

  • Reduce the appearance of moderate to severe wrinkles and facial lines, particularly in the lower face.
  • Add volume to areas that may have lost fullness due to aging, such as the cheeks and nasolabial folds.
  • Provide a lifting effect, helping to contour and rejuvenate the face without surgery.
  • Restore volume and reduce the visibility of veins and tendons on the back of the hands.
  • Stimulate the body’s natural collagen production, promoting longer-lasting results.

How Should I Prepare for Radiesse Injections?

Getting ready for Radiesse injections involves a few simple steps.

First, talk to a specialist about what you want to achieve and share your medical history, including any allergies or medications you take.

In the days leading up to the treatment, avoiding things that can thin your blood, like certain medications or supplements, is a good idea.

Drink plenty of water to stay hydrated and skip alcohol and smoking a few days before the procedure.

Your provider might recommend applying a numbing cream to the treatment area if needed.

Ensure you know what to expect during and after the procedure, including any potential side effects. Plan for some rest afterward, avoiding intense activities and too much sun exposure. Always follow the specific instructions given by your healthcare professional for the best results.

What to Expect During Radiesse Treatment

During a Radiesse treatment session, you can expect a straightforward and relatively quick process.

Here’s what typically happens:

  1. The treatment area will be cleaned thoroughly to remove any makeup, oil, or debris. This helps reduce the risk of infection.
  2. Depending on your preference and the treatment area, your healthcare provider may apply a topical numbing cream to minimize discomfort.
  3. Radiesse is injected directly into the targeted areas using a fine needle. The injections are strategically administered to achieve the desired results, such as smoothing wrinkles or adding volume.
  4. After the injections, your provider may massage the treated area gently. This helps to distribute the filler evenly and ensures a natural-looking result.

Following the injection, you might be observed for a short period to ensure no immediate adverse reactions. Once your healthcare provider is satisfied, you are free to leave.

One of the advantages of Radiesse is that there is minimal downtime. You can typically resume your regular activities immediately after the treatment.

Your healthcare provider may schedule a follow-up appointment to assess the results and address any concerns or additional treatment needs.

Remember that individual experiences may vary, and it’s essential to communicate openly with your healthcare professional about your expectations and any questions about the procedure.

How Long Does Radiesse Last?

Radiesse is known for providing long-lasting results compared to some other dermal fillers.

On average, the effects of Radiesse can last around 12 to 18 months. However, individual experiences may vary based on factors such as metabolism, lifestyle, and the specific areas treated.

The longevity of Radiesse is attributed to its unique composition, which includes calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres. These microspheres stimulate collagen production in the skin, contributing to prolonged results even after the body naturally absorbs the initial filler.

It’s important to note that maintenance treatments may be necessary to sustain the desired effects over time.

If you have concerns about the duration of Radiesse results or are considering additional treatments, discussing these matters with your healthcare provider will ensure a clearer understanding of what to expect and how to maintain the best results for your unique needs.

Are There Any Risks or Side Effects Associated with Radiesse?

While Radiesse is generally considered safe, like any medical procedure, there are potential risks and side effects. It’s essential to be aware of these possibilities before undergoing treatment.

Common side effects may include:

  • Mild swelling and bruising at the injection site.
  • Redness, itching, or discomfort at the treated area.
  • Small lumps or nodules at the injection site.

While rare, there is a risk of infection or allergic reaction. Following proper aftercare instructions and seeking medical attention is crucial if you notice signs of allergic reaction or infection, such as increased redness, swelling, or pain.

Radiesse vs. Other Fillers

Radiesse is a dermal filler that uses calcium hydroxylapatite to add volume and stimulate collagen, lasting about 12 to 18 months.

Other popular fillers like Juvéderm and Restylane use hyaluronic acid for hydration and volume, lasting around 6 to 18 months.

Sculptra, made of poly-L-lactic acid, stimulates collagen over time, with results lasting up to 2 years. Belotero, another hyaluronic acid filler, smooths fine lines for 6 to 12 months.

The best dermal filler choice depends on individual goals, areas to address, and desired results. Costs vary, and a consultation with a healthcare professional helps determine the most suitable filler for specific needs.
