What is Radiesse?

Radiesse is a volumizing facial injectable used to restore volume and diminish the appearance of wrinkles and folds in the skin. It is a soft, gel-like, biocompatible substance composed of small, spherical calcium-based microspheres suspended in a gel matrix. Radiesse is safe and effective, as it is made up of substances that naturally occur in the body. Once injected into the dermis layer of the skin, it adds volume, fullness, and shape. Radiesse provides long-lasting correction and improvement of skin tone and texture with continued collagen stimulation. In addition, it stimulates natural collagen production in the body and creates a supportive scaffolding to fill in lines and wrinkles. Radiesse has a wide range of applications, including cheek enhancement, chin augmentation, hand rejuvenation, and softening of the nasolabial folds. Radiesse is a trusted injectable that continues to provide natural-looking results.

Explore the Procedure Details

The procedure involves the placement of a calcium-based injectable product that provides long-lasting volume and definition while simultaneously replenishing the skin’s hyaluronic acid stores. Patients should let their aesthetic professional know of any medications or medical conditions that might affect their treatment, as well as any prior treatments, such as skin resurfacing, laser therapy, or filler injections.

Most patients do not require topical anesthesia for the procedure; however, it is recommended in certain circumstances. The number of injection sites, as well as the number of units injected at each site, varies from patient to patient based on the size of the area and desired effect.

During the treatment, tiny injections are made of the Radiesse product in precise locations using a fine needle. Depending on the area, multiple injections may be necessary. Once the Radiesse has been injected, the doctor may massage the area to shape and contour the treatment.

Experience a Smooth Recovery

The immediate aftermath of a Radiesse injection typically involves slight swelling, redness, and tenderness in the injection site. Patients may also experience a burning sensation at the injection site. It is normal to experience these side effects, and they should dissipate over the course of a few hours to a few days. To reduce swelling and pain, ice should be applied to the injection site as soon as possible after the treatment.

During the healing period, patients should minimize sun exposure, exercise, and physical contact with the area of the face where the injection was applied. In addition, any lotion or moisturizer used on the injection site should be unscented and free of harsh ingredients, as these may further irritate the area. To ensure proper healing, patients should continue to ice the injection site throughout the healing process.

Following the Radiesse treatment, patients typically return to their daily habits in a matter of days. To sustain the results, you must persist with your usual skincare regimen and remain well-hydrated. Adhering to the provided recovery guidelines minimizes the risk of irritation and assists in the healing process.
