What Is Radiesse?

Radiesse is a dermal filler that is used to treat wrinkles, fine lines, and facial folds. It is made up of calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres, which are suspended in a gel-like substance. CaHA is a naturally occurring substance found in our bones, so it is considered safe for use in the body. When injected into the skin, Radiesse provides immediate volume and lift to the treatment area, where it can be used to treat smile lines (nasolabial folds), address marionette lines (the lines that run from the corners of the mouth to the chin), and to add volume to the cheeks and temples. The results of your Radiesse injections can last for up to a year or more, depending on the individual and the treatment area.

Not only does Radiesse address fine lines, wrinkles, and deeper folds with an exciting level of efficacy, but it also creates its results without requiring that you deal with any kind of extensive downtime or lengthy recovery period. You’ll injections can be completed in less than an hour, leaving you to rejoin your normal routine and enjoy your exciting results. Dr. Leif Rogers, MD, FACS has extensive experience with a wide range of both surgical and non-surgical cosmetic procedures, and we’ll be excited to work with you to develop a customized treatment plan.

The Radiesse Experience

Before the day of your procedure, we’ll advise you to avoid taking aspirin or other blood-thinning medications for at least one week prior to the procedure, as these can increase the risk of bleeding and bruising in the treatment area.

The length of your Radiesse treatment will vary according to the number of areas being treated and the amount of filler being injected. Most treatments typically take around 30 minutes to complete, at which point you’ll be able to leave our office and rejoin your activities.

During the session, you’ll be offered a topical numbing agent to keep you comfortable, at which point your practitioner will carefully make the injections with a fine-gauge needle. Your session will be done in under an hour, making this an ideal “lunch break” procedure.

Your Recovery and Results

The recovery time after the injection session is generally minimal, and most patients can return to their normal activities immediately after the procedure. Some patients, however, may experience mild swelling or redness. After your session, you’ll notice an immediate plumping effect, added volume, and smoothed-out wrinkles and fine lines in the treatment area. Over time, the CaHA microspheres in the filler stimulate the body's natural collagen production, so you can enjoy lasting facial rejuvenation. If you’d like to learn more about Radiesse—or if you’re interested in exploring the other treatments we offer—reach out to our Beverly Hills office and set up your initial consultation today.
