Radiesse® is a wrinkle filler that plumps and smoothes the skin. As people age, their natural support systems for supple and youthful skin deteriorate. Collagen and elastin within the skin decline with time, causing wrinkles and creases. Radiesse® is frequently used to provide volume to the hands, as well as fill in smile lines, marionette lines, and other facial wrinkles.
- Radiesse® is a dermal filler made of Calcium Hydroxyapatite (CaHa).
- It’s an injectable dermal filler that may be used on the face or hands.
- The ingredient stimulates the body’s own natural collagen production.
- Radiesse® adds instant volume while also promoting additional improvements over time.
- Results can last up to a year.
Why Do Patients Choose Radiesse®?
Many patients choose Radiesse® because it stimulates collagen production to restore volume loss over time, resulting in results that keep improving. Collagen is vital for healthy, youthful looking skin. Patients can benefit from increased facial wrinkles and folds, as well as improved facial appearance, thanks to new collagen.
The solution may also be used to add volume to hands that have lost it or make them feel more supple. The skin of your hands loses suppleness as they age, revealing veins, tendons, and bones. Patients can acquire a smoother, younger appearance when the treatment is applied to their hands.
How Does It Work?
Radiesse® is a calcium hydroxyapatite (CaHA) microsphere suspension in clear gel. The transparent gel adds instant volume to the skin and activates the body to create extra collagen. CaHA is metabolized by the body, leaving natural collagen for long-term structure.
Radiesse® Treatment With Your Own Personalization
Prior to treatment, one of our nurse injectors or plastic surgeons will meet with you to talk about your concerns and goals, as well as evaluate your face to determine the best filler for you. To reduce discomfort during the injections, Radiesse® can be combined with a numbing cream. A tiny needle is inserted beneath the skin to deliver the medication. The treatment time is usually around 15-20 minutes.
- You can resume all normal activities once the treatment is completed, but you should avoid physical activity for 48 hours.
- Avoid massaging or exfoliating the area. To help with any swelling or bruising.
- Apply ice to the treatment site.

Additional Treatment Options
Radiesse® can be mixed with other injectable treatments like Botox® to treat a variety of wrinkles in different regions. Radiesse® works well at improving your creases and wrinkles, but if you develop further symptoms of aging, such as sagging facial tissue, you might wish to consider a surgical intervention like a facelift or brow lift.
