Radiesse is made with calcium hydroxylapatite, a biodegradable compound that is gradually absorbed by the body over time. It works by enhancing collagen production to smooth and rejuvenate the skin from within. After Radiesse, the skin appears more supple, radiant, and resilient. In addition to revitalizing the complexion, Radiesse can also be used to rejuvenate the hands.

What is Radiesse?

Radiesse is an injectable that harnesses the body’s natural ability to fill out areas of depletion. By triggering the regrowth of collagen, Radiesse provides fuller, more youthful-looking contours. Results can last up to one year for some patients. 

Radiesse can accomplish the following:

  • Enhance volume in the cheeks, midface, and temples
  • Minimize the appearance of jowls
  • Smooth away wrinkles, lines, and folds
  • Restore drooping mouth corners
  • Correct nasolabial folds
  • Accomplish a non-surgical rhinoplasty
  • Aid in achieving a non-surgical chin augmentation
  • Rejuvenate the hands

Radiesse is an excellent option for those seeking a non-surgical option for facial rejuvenation and for those struggling with volume loss, lines, and wrinkles. Patients who wish to rejuvenate the appearance of their hands can also find success with Radiesse injections. During your consultation, we will evaluate your skin quality and review your medical history to ensure that Radiesse is the best option for your goals. Radiesse safety has not been confirmed for patients under 18 or for women who are pregnant or nursing. Those with active bleeding disorders or a history of allergic reactions to ingredients in Radiesse should also avoid the treatment.

After Radiesse

Patients may experience mild swelling, redness, or tenderness at the injection sites, but these side effects dissipate quickly and patients typically resume normal activities right away. A few ibuprofen and ice are usually sufficient to alleviate discomfort. Patients should take care to avoid the harmful rays of the sun, wearing the appropriate sunblock. Makeup can be worn within a few hours after your Radiesse session. As with any cosmetic procedure, our team believes in extensive follow-up, and we will continue to remain available to answer any questions as your healing progresses. 

Radiesse for Hand Rejuvenation

In addition to its benefits for the face, Radiesse is often chosen for its ability to revitalize the appearance of the hands, enhancing volume, minimizing the look of tendons and veins, and smoothing away creases and lines. Like its facial results, changes in the hands with Radiesse can last for up to 12 months.
