What is Radiesse?

Radiesse is a dermal filler that is composed of tiny microspheres. These microspheres are made of synthetic material called calcium hydroxylapatite, which is combined with a common hydrogel. Once injected, Radiesse works with your body below the skin’s surface. The hydrogel acts as a carrier to deliver the microspheres and holds them in place. The calcium particles left behind creates a scaffold for you tissue to build around.

Radiesse can be used for smoothing and contouring smiles lines and nasolabial folds. It can also be used for contouring of the cheeks, chin or jawline. Typically, Radiesse secondary benefit is decreasing the signs of aging.

Radiesse FAQ

How much does RADIESSE cost?
Your cost for a RADIESSE treatment is dependent on the amount used to match your desired outcome. In your consultation at Beleza Surgery, your injector will ask about your needs and wants so they can develop your personalized treatment plan. Then, they can discuss the costs of your treatment.

How does RADIESSE compare to other fillers?
Injectable wrinkle fillers all have unique properties and formulas to fit various issues. Common filler ingredients include HA (hyaluronic acid), calcium hydroxyapatite (CaHa), poly-L-lactic acid, and PMMA (polymethylmethacrylate). RADIESSE is made with calcium-based microspheres, which are similar to HA injectable fillers due to the natural ability to increase the natural production of collagen. During your initial consult, your injector will discuss the various dermal filler brands and assess your facial tone and volume to determine which one is correct for you.

Are RADIESSE injections painful?
Usually, patients don't need any form of numbing prior to their treatments. However, a local anesthetic is available to make you feel more comfortable. Most patients only experience minor and brief discomfort when the needle pierces the skin.

What are the side effects of RADIESSE?
RADIESSE treatments have a low risk of serious side effects when performed by a skilled injector, like our team at Beleza Surgery. In your initial consultation, tell your injector about medications you take and any known allergies to avoid a reaction. Right after your injection, you may develop mild redness, bruising, numbness, or itching. These side effects are temporary and usually fade within a few days.

What other procedures can I combine with RADIESSE?
RADIESSE injections may be done in combination with other injectables for a liquid facelift to help achieve your ideal results. Some patients use dermal fillers, like RADIESSE, along with BOTOX or another wrinkle relaxer to produce more dramatic improvements. Speak to your injector before your treatment to learn more about procedures that complement the results of RADIESSE injections.
