What Is Radiesse?
Radiesse is an FDA-approved injectable filler composed of calcium hydroxylapatite spheres suspended in a gel. These microspheres mimic the structure of natural connective tissue. The firm viscosity of the product refills the volume in your sunken cheeks, along with hollows in your jawline and chin. It also smooths away deep furrows for a more youthful look.
Most patients get this dermal filler treatment to treat the nasolabial folds, which extend from the corners of the nose to the edges of the mouth. Wrinkled hands can also be treated with Radiesse to improve their appearance.
Am I a Good Candidate for Radiesse Treatments?
You may be an ideal candidate for Radiesse cosmetic filler if you want to get rid of wrinkles or reduce severe volume loss in your face or the backs of your hands. Ideally, you should be 35 years old and above and in good overall health. Having realistic expectations and goals is also important before undergoing the procedure.
If you have known allergies to lidocaine or the ingredients in Radiesse injections, you should avoid this treatment. Pregnant women and breastfeeding mothers are also not recommended for this procedure.
Your Radiesse Consultation
During your consultation, a physical examination of your target areas will be performed. The elasticity of your skin and the extent of volume loss will be evaluated. This step is vital in order to determine the treatment approach suitable for your concerns. You will also be asked about your general health and medical history.
Your Radiesse treatment starts with cleansing your skin; after this, the injection sites may be marked. Radiesse will be expertly and precisely delivered to target sites. Since it already includes lidocaine in the mixture, a local anesthetic may not be necessary. The product will be injected under the skin until desired results are achieved. The improvements can last up to 2 years.
After your treatment, you might experience minor itching, pain, and swelling in the injection sites. Bruising and redness may also be expected but should disappear after a few days.
No recovery time or downtime will be required after the treatment. While you may be able to resume your usual daily routine, you should avoid direct sunlight exposure and strenuous exercises for the next 24 hours. To help with any discomfort, you may take pain medication as directed.
How Much Do Radiesse Treatments Cost?
The cost of Radiesse treatments varies from patient to patient. The total price of your procedure will depend on the number of injections used.
