The Reasons Why Radiesse Works


Radiesse is a common and popular non-surgical treatment used to get rid of wrinkles.
Radiesse treatments improve facial volume to fill in wrinkles, providing a more youthful appearance and smooth skin.

Patients can return to their normal routine immediately after the treatment. Radiesse shows results that are immediately visible, and full results appear within a week of treatment. Most people often enjoy long-term results for up to two years.

What Is Radiesse?

Radiesse is a cosmetic skin treatment that can fill specific areas of the face and hands. It is the preferred treatment for the correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds such as smile lines, marionette lines, and pre-jowl folds. It can define the jawline, add volume to hollowing temples, and smooth out the corners of the mouth.

This FDA-approved treatment is an instant lift and provides a refreshed appearance that lasts up to a year or longer.

How Does Radiesse Work?

Radiesse mainly consists of synthetic calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres inside a gel carrier. These microspheres bolster the structure of the tissues, improving the skin from the inside out. When injected into the skin with a thin needle, Radiesse’s formula helps the skin develop new collagen by stimulating the body’s natural collagen production.

Who Is a Potential Candidate for Radiesse Treatment?

People who have started to find signs of aging on their face and hands are the best candidates for Radiesse treatment. These signs are reversed when they undergo the Radiesse treatment.

People who want to reduce the appearance of indented scars and other skin depressions also choose Radiesse treatment, as it is less invasive in comparison to facelifts.

Most commonly, patients who are 35 to 60 years old opt for this treatment. Overall, adults who are physically healthy are eligible to opt for Radiesse.

What Is the Radiesse Treatment Procedure Like?

After the patient and doctor identify the areas that require an increase in volume, a series of injections will be made on the basis of the patient’s needs. Topical anesthetic is administered to the treatment areas immediately before the injections to minimize discomfort.

Radiesse is then injected into the specific skin areas through a tiny needle. Several injections are required depending on the size of the areas that require treatment.

The whole procedure takes about 30 minutes, making it incredibly convenient. Because of this, it can be performed during a person’s lunch break and is known as a “lunchtime procedure.” Afterwards, patients can leave the doctor’s office without needing to stay overnight.

Like most injectable treatments, patients will encounter temporary swelling and slight discomfort after Radiesse injections. Extensive movements in and around the treated areas must be avoided for the first few days after the treatment.
