Dermal fillers are a great way to help smooth wrinkled and folded skin, and one of our favorite dermal fillers available is Radiesse. If you’re thinking about Radiesse treatments, here is what you need to know.
Radiesse is dermal filler that is commonly used to fill moderate wrinkled or folded areas of the skin, most often in the face. With its patented formula, Radiesse not only smooths out the skin but also supports the underlying structure of the skin by promoting your body’s own collagen production.
Radiesse’s formula is a gel-like material that provides immediate volume to the skin as soon as it is injected. Over time, your body absorbs the gel with the microspheres staying in place, smoothing out the skin.
Radiesse is often injected with a small needle. Typically, a topical anesthetic is applied to help with any discomfort or pain.
Since it is an injection, the treatments can be a bit painful. Like other dermal fillers, Radiesse is mixed with a small dose of lidocaine to help minimize the pain and discomfort during and after the procedure.
The treatment typically lasts between 15 to 45 minutes depending on the number of injections that are required.
Results with Radiesse are nearly instant. After treatment, you’ll see fullness and smoothness at the injection site. Within a few days, after swelling and redness disappears, you’ll notice immediate results. Compared to other dermal fillers, Radiesse results last quite a long time with nearly 80% of patients continuing to see results one year after the treatment.
After receiving an injection of Radiesse, you may experience slight swelling or redness at the injection site. It is temporary, however, and usually goes away after a few days. In rare cases, individuals may experience bumps, bruises, and itching at the injection site.
