What is Radiesse®?

Radiesse is a collagen stimulator that restores lost volume and provides long-term results. Unlike most dermal fillers, which typically contain hyaluronic acid, Radiesse consists of calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHa) microspheres suspended in a viscous, water-based gel.

How is Radiesse different from dermal fillers and neuromodulators?

Radiesse is the first and remains the only FDA-approved CaHa filler to target moderate to severe wrinkles in the face and the backs of the hands. The gel that Radiesse contains acts as a carrier for the CaHa microspheres, which gradually break down and stimulate new collagen.

Collagen is an essential protein that provides structure and support for the body’s connective tissues. It’s responsible for keeping your skin firm, supple, and responsive. Age causes collagen to break down, leading to wrinkles and sagging skin.

Radiesse’s unique formulation allows for immediate results, just like hyaluronic acid fillers, and you can expect gradual improvement as new collagen forms.

What types of wrinkles is Radiesse best for?

Radiesse treats static wrinkles, which form in the lower part of the face, particularly around the mouth and nose. It can improve the appearance of deep nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and pre-jowl folds. Radiesse can also augment the cheeks, temples, and chin, filling in hollow areas and restoring lost collagen.

What can I expect after getting Radiesse?

Results are apparent immediately after Radiesse treatments. Mild bruising, redness, and swelling at the injection sites are expected side effects that typically subside within hours or days. To support a healthy recovery with no complications, you should:

  • Avoid applying makeup for at least a few hours
  • Refrain from touching the treatment area
  • Limit direct sunlight exposure for 24 hours
  • Avoid strenuous activity for a couple of days

Radiesse treatments require no social downtime, so you can resume your normal activities immediately after treatment.

Do Radiesse results get better over time?

One of the most popular benefits of Radiesse is that it delivers results that get better over time. While most hyaluronic acid fillers last 6-12 months, Radiesse continues improving the appearance of lines and wrinkles for at least 12-18 months. As new collagen starts to form, your skin may appear smoother and tighter.
