Radiesse instantly plumps aging skin and stimulates your body’s natural supply of collagen, delivering both immediate and long-lasting results.


What is Radiesse?

Radiesse is a filler that is designed to correct moderate facial wrinkles, lost facial volume, and aging hands. The product is injected beneath the skin with a needle, where it instantly plumps and fills in lines.

Once in place, Radiesse triggers the production of fresh, youthful collagen in the area. The body then gradually absorbs and metabolizes the product over time, leaving behind only your natural supply of collagen.

How does Radiesse work?

Radiesse is comprised of tiny calcium hydroxyapatite (CaHA) gel microspheres. Once injected, these microspheres immediately plump the target area, providing instant results. Over time, the CaHA encourages your skin to produce fresh collagen. Your body will eventually absorb the CaHA, and only your natural collagen will remain.

Recovery + Results

There is no recovery period necessary with Radiesse injections. You will be able to return to work and your normal daily routine right away. Some minor swelling is to be expected and should subside within a couple of days. Mild bruising and discomfort are also common. Your skin will be more sensitive than usual for 24 hours, so avoid direct sunlight and extreme heat.

You will notice an immediate improvement in the treatment area after your appointment, with the full results appearing in one week. Your new look can last anywhere from one to two years, at which point you will require another set of injections.
