What is Radiesse?

Radiesse, formerly known as Radiance, is a facial contouring filler that will remain soft and pliable and will take on the characteristics of the surrounding soft tissue.

The unique composition of Radiesse provides immediate visual improvement common with other fillers, along with the benefit of long-lasting results. This is because Radiesse is made of very tiny, smooth calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres. The microspheres (particles) form a scaffold through which your body's own collagen grows, and this produces the desired long-term effect. These unique advantages make Radiesse the ideal choice for facial shaping and contouring — along with other therapeutic applications.

Its unique contouring ability allows physicians to treat large areas of the face in one procedure. For the first 3 months after injection, Radiesse initially performs as a filler substance by plumping up the skin. Then, thanks to its collagen-generating properties, Radiesse actually stimulates new tissue development for extended correction for up to 12 to 24 months.

How is the procedure performed?

After a thorough cleansing of the area to be treated, Radiesse is injected under the skin in a continuous stream through a very fine needle into the appropriate facial planes needed for augmentation and contouring. The injection may be accompanied by either a topical or injectable anesthetic. The procedure is performed as a non-surgical, minimally invasive outpatient procedure.

What will I look and feel like afterward?

Typically, you will see some mild swelling or redness at the injection sites that may last 1-2 days. In most cases, you can return to your routine activities immediately following the procedure. We will provide you with any specific instructions.

There are few reported side effects. However, some common injection-related reactions may occur, such as edema, swelling, pain, itching, discoloration and tenderness at the injection site.

How long do the results last?

In facial applications, Radiesse should provide a correction that lasts around 1 to 2 years, with an occasional touchup. Individual results may vary, affected by age, metabolism, skin type, lifestyle and muscle activity.
