What is Radiesse®?

Radiesse® is an FDA-approved filler used to “fill” or plump specific areas of the face and hands. It stimulates your body’s natural collagen production process - ensuring future collagen growth - while filling in wrinkles and adding volume in deficient areas. It provides long-lasting results to smooth moderate-to-severe wrinkles and folds. Radiesse® is also the only dermal filler that is FDA-approved for use on the hands, banishing wrinkles and improving the appearance of hands by restoring lost volume and minimizing the visibility of veins and tendons.

Radiesse® FAQs 


How long do the results from Radiesse® last?


You’ll begin to see results from your Radiesse® injection immediately, and full results will be visible within one week of treatment. Each patient is unique, but most Radiesse® patients see results that last up to one year!


How many units of Radiesse® will I need?


Just like with any other dermal filler, the amount of units you’ll need during your treatment depends entirely on how subtle or dramatic of a transformation you’re hoping to achieve and what areas you’d like to treat. Your provider will work with you to determine how many units are necessary to get the desired results, and rest assured that we never use more than we need to!


Are Radiesse® injections painful?


Our aesthetic specialists take every precaution to ensure that our patients have a comfortable, pain-free injection experience! We apply a topical anesthetic to the treatment area prior to your injection. While it’s possible that you may feel a slight pinch, most patients experience no pain at all during their Radiesse® injections!
