The loss of collagen is the primary reason for the loss of facial volume and other signs of aging. Radiesse is one of the most effective injectable solutions to restore your skin’s depleting collagen reserves and reverse the signs of aging.
What is Radiesse?
Radiesse is a dermal filler that encourages collagen production in your skin. When injected into targeted facial tissues, it encourages your body to produce new collagen fibers that cling to the Radiesse molecules, thereby improving the strength, structure, and firmness of your skin. Radiesse can restore facial volume, sculpt your facial features, and soften the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and facial creases.

How Does Radiesse Work?
Radiesse is a dermal filler made of tiny spheres of calcium hydroxylapatite, a naturally occurring substance readily available in our teeth and bones. When injected underneath targeted facial tissues, calcium hydroxylapatite activates your body’s natural collagen production capabilities. Collagen is a fibrous protein that makes your skin look smooth, firm, and voluminous. As such, Radiesse encourages collagen production to restore your skin’s youthful strength and volume.
Your Radiesse treatment is handled by our lead injector and board-certified physician, Dr. Fernandez. He curates the ideal Radiesse treatment plan after examining your medical history and facial tissues and discussing your specific goals and expectations. Based on your expectations, he injects the ideal Radiesse dose into targeted areas of your face using ultrafine needles. Topical numbing cream might be used to reduce comfort. The entire treatment concludes within 15 to 20 minutes.
What Are the Side Effects of Radiesse?
Radiesse produces minimal side effects, such as redness, swelling, tenderness, and bruising around the injection areas. The side effects dissipate in a few days. You can resume your daily activities and work immediately, but you should avoid strenuous workouts for a day.
What Are the Results Like?
Radiesse produces instant results that gradually improve as your body produces new collagen fibers. The results last for over 12 months, following which you’ll need a maintenance treatment.
