What is Radiesse®
Radiesse is a procedure that helps reduce the appearance of certain scars, wrinkles and fine lines. The results of this procedure can last up to two years. This procedure is performed by injecting a filler in the areas around the nose and the mouth.
What is the procedure process of Radiesse?
Radiesse is performed as an outpatient procedure in a doctor’s office. This procedure is performed under local anesthesia and can usually be completed in less than 15 minutes. The first thing that a doctor does is apply antiseptic to the areas of the face that are going to be treated. After that, he identifies the correct amount of filler to use. The final step in this process is to apply the Radiesse filler underneath the skin. The results of this procedure are usually noticeable within a week.
Who is considered a good candidate for Radiesse?
The ideal candidate for Radiesse is someone between the ages of 30 and 60. People who are interested in getting this procedure done should not have any major medical problems.
What are the benefits of Radiesse?
The main benefit that comes along with getting Radiesse is improved appearance. Wrinkles, fine lines and scars can lower a person’s self-esteem. If a woman likes what she sees in the mirror, she will feel better about herself. Additionally, Radiesse is a great alternative to more drastic procedures.
What is the Cost of Radiesse?

Is Radiesse Safe?

How long is the recovery time after this procedure?
Most patients can return to their normal activities within 36 hours of this procedure. People should also make sure that they limit their sun exposure for at least a week after getting Radiesse.
