Radiesse Q&A

What is Radiesse?

Radiesse is a dermal filler that uses calcium-based microspheres to reduce wrinkles and creases in your face and hands. The microspheres penetrate the deepest layers of your skin tissue to stimulate collagen, a powerful protein that’s responsible for maintaining your skin’s elasticity.

Your body naturally starts producing less collagen as you get older. By triggering the production of this essential protein, Radiesse uses your body’s natural healing process to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

What can Radiesse treat?

Radiesse is a safe, effective treatment for fine lines, wrinkles, and deep folds in your face and hands. It can effectively target:

  • Hollow cheeks
  • Laugh lines
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Lip lines
  • Chin dimples
  • Jowls
  • Back of the hands

Dr. Willis can also use Radiesse to contour your face for a more defined jawline and cheekbones.

What happens during Radiesse treatments?

Radiesse injections at New England Laser Lipo take about 15 minutes, making them the perfect treatment for your lunch break. At your initial consultation, Dr. Willis can determine the right injection sites to give you smoother, younger-looking skin.

To make sure you feel as comfortable as possible, Dr. Willis uses a local anesthetic to numb your skin before your injection.

What happens after Radiesse treatments?

Minor swelling, bruising, and redness are normal side effects of Radiesse, but these should subside within a few days. You can minimize these side effects by avoiding strenuous activity, alcohol, and anti-inflammatory medication for at least 24 hours after your injection.

The full results of Radiesse take about one week to appear. You’ll notice visible results right away, but the tone and texture of your skin will look smoothest after the first seven days.

What makes Radiesse unique is that because it stimulates collagen, your results can last for more than a year. Dr. Willis recommends returning to New England Laser Lipo for maintenance treatments once the effects begin to wear off.
