What is Radiesse?

Radiesse is a filler, used to help eliminate deep lines in the face. It is injected under the skin, where it not only plumps up the lines, but also induces the skin to build new collagen around it. Hence, Radiesse can potentially have a long-term effect on treating wrinkles.

Risks Associated with Radiesse

Some of the risks and potential side-effects of Radiesse include:

  • Redness and bruising after the procedure
  • Temporary pain and limited range of movement
  • Numbness
  • Scabbing
  • Lumps and nodules
  • Slight chance of an allergic reaction

Dr. Hellman has extensive experience administering Radiesse to patients in New York. She works closely with each of her patients to minimize risks and offer them the best results possible.

How is Radiesse Different from Sculptra?

Radiesse gives an immediate effect with just one treatment. Sculptra, made of a different material, has to be injected 2-3 times before a substantial improvement can be seen. This means that it takes longer to notice the effect as well as paying 2-3 times more for the material needed, thus raising the cost.

How is Radiesse Different from Restylane and Perlane?

Radiesse is simply made of a different ingredient, Calcium Hydroxyapatite. This is a naturally occurring substance, found in bones and teeth, and as such, doesn’t cause allergic reactions and is easily tolerated by patients. Restylane and Perlane are made of a different substance, hyaluronic acid, a natural component of the human body as well, built of complex sugar molecules.

How Do I Know if I Need Radiesse or Restylane/Perlane?

Restylane is best for use in areas where lines are not very deep. Because it is not as dense as other fillers, it can be used between the eyebrows to treat frown lines, and can also be injected to plump up the lip. Perlane, which is a denser filler but made of the same material as Restylane, is good to fill deeper lines in the nasolabial folds and marionette lines.

Radiesse can also be used in similar areas to Perlane. However, Radiesse can volumize. Radiesse can help:

  • Correct the hollows that develop in the cheeks
  • Add definition around the cheekbones
  • Improve the appearance of jowls

As a result of its versatility, this filler is very popular among my patients. Dr. Hellman can advise which filler is optimal for you.

How long does it last?

Radiesse typically can last for 1-1 1/2 years, although the company states that it can last up to 2 years. It is a long lasting substance, which also prompts collagen production in the skin in the treatment area. Most patients enjoy long-lasting results, reporting softened lines and plumpiness in the areas treated for months after treatment.

Is it painful to inject?

Not really! Radiesse is mixed with Lidocaine before use, and involves very little discomfort.

Are there any complications?

Serious complications are exceedingly rare. As with all injections, treatment can be followed by transient bruising and/or mild puffiness in the areas treated, which usually disappear within a few days. Treatment of the hands can involve a longer period of swelling and lumpiness, which also subsides, leaving behind plump, youthful hands.

A How is Radiesse used to treat the hands?

Radiesse can be used under the skin on the back of the hands to soften the look of boney, older looking hands with prominent veins. Upon injection of Radiesse, the back of the hand acquires a plumper look, characteristic of younger hands.

Can Radiesse be combined with other fillers and treatments?

Yes, very much so! For example, Radiesse can be used to recreate the high cheekbones that tend to lose definition with age, while Restylane can be used to plump up the lips and help eliminate dark circles under the eyes. Radiesse is also great in combination with skin-tightening laser treatments such as Refirme, as well as in combination with Botox or Dysport, injectable treatments that can smooth out lines on the upper face and forehead.
