Perfection Plastic Surgery & Skin Care can help you restore your youthful beauty!
What Is Radiesse?
Radiesseis a dermal filler made of calcium hydroxyapatite, a substance that is similar to what makes up our bones and teeth. Radiesse is injected into the skin to help replenish lost collagen, providing lift and support. Facial soft tissue augmentation with Radiesse can help diminish the signs of skin aging. Radiesse is a versatile dermal filler that can be used to volumize different areas of the face and can even improve the appearance of the back of your hands!
Radiesse is made of tiny calcium-based microspheres that are suspended in a water-based gel. Over time, the body absorbs the gel and leaves behind the microspheres. The gel helps stimulate collagen production. It mimics connective tissue found in our body and stimulates collagen production to help blood vessels and connective tissue cells to proliferate and migrate into the injection area. Radiesse is different from other dermal fillers because it provides both immediate volume and lift, as well as long-lasting results.
What Are the Benefits of Radiesse?
Like most dermal fillers, Radiesse is used for volume restoration and to fill in creases, wrinkles, and folds.
Here are other benefits of Radiesse treatment:
- Long-lasting: Results can last up to a year or more with Radiesse, making it a cost-effective option.
- Stimulates Collagen Production: Radiesse not only fills in skin wrinkles and creases, but also stimulates your body’s own collagen production for long-lasting results. More collagen means healthier, firmer skin.
- Not Derived From Animals: Radiesse is made of calcium hydroxylapatite, a substance that is similar to what makes up our bones and teeth. Radiesse does not contain any animal products or byproducts, making it a safe dermal filler for those with allergies or sensitivities.
- Versatile: Radiesse can be used to volumize different areas of the face, including the nasolabial folds, marionette lines, cheeks, and even the back of your hands.
- Immediate Results and Long-term Benefits: Radiesse provides immediate volume and lift, as well as long-lasting results.
- Minimally Invasive and Little to No Downtime: Radiesse treatments are minimally invasive and have little to no downtime. You can resume your normal activities immediately after treatment.
- FDA-approved: Radiesse is FDA-approved for the correction of moderate to severe wrinkles and creases.

Risks and Side Effects
For those who have an active skin infection, Radiesse may not be the best option. It is also not recommended for pregnant or breastfeeding women and people who are taking blood-thinning medications. But generally, Radiesse is well-tolerated by most people.
The most common side effects of Radiesse include injection site reactions. These side effects are usually mild and resolve on their own within a few days. Radiesse is a safe and effective dermal filler that can help you achieve your aesthetic goals.
How Does Radiesse Work?
The hyaluronic acid fillers in Radiesse dermal filler attract and bind to water, which helps add volume to the skin. Radiesse also helps stimulate collagen production, which further adds volume to the skin. The collagen formation helps Radiesse to last up to a year or more in the skin. The soft tissue filler usually lasts around six to nine months. Since hyaluronic acid is a natural substance that is found in the body, it is unlikely to cause any allergic reactions. Radiesse dermal filler is also biocompatible, meaning it is not rejected by the body.
Immediate improvement can be seen with Radiesse, but the final results may take weeks or a few months to appear. Realistic expectations are necessary to avoid disappointment. Radiesse is not a permanent solution for wrinkles and folds, but it can help slow down the aging process by stimulating collagen production.
Radiesse vs. Surgical Procedures
Radiesse is a calcium hydroxylapatite-based implant that is different from surgery because it is a minimally invasive procedure with little to no downtime. Radiesse is also less expensive than surgery, making it a more affordable option for those looking to improve their appearance. As an injectable dermal filler, Radiesse can be used to target specific areas of the face.
Risks and side effects are also lower with Radiesse than with surgery. Maintenance treatments are required every few months to maintain results, but Radiesse is a safe and effective dermal filler that can help you achieve improved skin texture. A topical anesthetic is usually all that is needed to numb the injection site, and Radiesse can be injected in a single session, unlike surgeries that may require multiple sessions.
