Radiesse® volumizing filler is different from the other “temporary” fine line fillers in that it is made of tiny calcium-based microspheres which are suspended in a natural, water-based gel. Since calcium is a mineral naturally found in your body, your body should naturally absorb the dermal filler over time.
Radiesse® can almost immediately begin filling the lost volume in your face. It is designed to continue to work by stimulating your body to produce its own natural collagen, thus helping the results to last longer!
When Will I See Results?*
Most patients see results shortly after treatment. You may also see some additional swelling due to the injections for the first 2-3 days.
How Long Will Results Last?*
Typically, benefits from fillers last 6-12 months. Individual results will vary and you should discuss this with us when you come in for your treatment. You may need “touch up” treatments to maintain optimal correction of wrinkles.
30-60 minutesDiscomfort is usually minimal to moderate. May use numbing cream, local anesthetic injections, or ice packs to aid with treatment. Many of the fillers also come mixed with numbing medication (lidocaine) for enhanced patient comfort.
Every 6-12 months.
Medications To Avoid
Discuss with us and your primary physician your exact medication list prior to stopping, but typically avoid for 3-5 days prior to your treatment your blood thinners (such as aspirin, ibuprofen, alcohol, omegas, flaxseed oil, fish oil, vitamin D3, and vitamin E).
