Radiesse is an advanced injectable filler formulated with calcium hydroxyapatite (CaHA) microspheres suspended in a delicate aqueous gel. When injected, Radiesse replenishes lost volume, smoothing wrinkles, lines, and creases on the surface of the skin. Over time, the CaHA microspheres create a structure within your skin upon which natural collagen builds, firming the skin for an exceptionally natural improvement in skin quality, leaving it supple, refreshed, and youthful.

FAQ

What is the recovery time after Radiesse injections?

You may return home immediately after treatment. You may experience temporary bruising, swelling, redness, itching, or tenderness at the injection sites, which should subside within a few days.

Any minor discomfort can be alleviated with over-the-counter medications. Avoid direct sun and heat for at least 24 hours after treatment.

How soon will I see results with Radiesse?

You can expect immediate improvement after Radiesse treatment. Within a week, your full results should appear. Radiesse will continue to work by stimulating your body to produce higher levels of natural collagen, leaving you with firmer, more youthful, soft and supple skin.

How should I prepare for Radiesse treatment?

Dr. Ostad will give you instructions on how to prepare for your Radiesse injections. He may advise you to discontinue certain medications that could cause bruising or excessive bleeding.
