Radiesse Ideal Candidates
For the heavy lifting and filling of the cheeks, mid-face, and temple area, Radiesse is an excellent treatment option. Look several years younger and boost your confidence with Radiesse injectable wrinkle fillers at Advanced Dermatology in Katy, League City, Pearland, or Sugar Land, TX.
Radiesse injectable wrinkle filler, offered by our highly skilled and experienced practitioners, is great for mild to moderate lines and wrinkles throughout the face, and age-related volume loss in the hands. Men and women who might not have a lot of time for repeat visits love the long-lasting results (1 – 2 years) of Radiesse. Using calcium hydroxyapatite microspheres in a water-based gel, this injectable plumps and softens the skin without invasive surgery. Radiesse has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to safely contour your facial features. It can be used in tandem with other injectables (wrinkle relaxers and fillers) for a custom strategy that rejuvenates your skin.
Radiesse Procedure Technique
Men and women who are in good health and have mild to moderate facial lines and wrinkles are great candidates for Radiesse injectable treatments. It can fill in smile lines, marionette lines, pre-jowl folds, chin wrinkles, and lines in the corners of the mouth. Radiesse is also safe to address age-related volume loss in the hands to make them softer and younger-looking. You should not have this injection if you are allergic to lidocaine or any ingredients in the product. Make sure to tell your practitioner about any allergies (severe or not) and any relevant medical history before starting this treatment. If you are breastfeeding, pregnant, may be pregnant, or are considering pregnancy within 1 – 2 years, you should not use Radiesse treatments.

Your Volume Goals Obtained
Radiesse injections take place in one of the treatment rooms at Advanced Dermatology in about 30 – 60 minutes after the consultation. First, you will be seated comfortably while the areas of injection will be cleaned and marked. Most patients feel only mild discomfort during their treatment at the initial needle stick (it is formulated with lidocaine), but if needed, a numbing agent will be applied to the injection sites. The dosage of Radiesse, selected at your personalized treatment planning session, will be prepared in an ultra-fine syringe. The marked injection sites will guide the injector to carefully administer Radiesse into the skin. After the procedure is complete, a cold compress can be applied to help alleviate swelling and bruising.
Redness and bruising at the injection site can usually be concealed with makeup. After your treatment, you may see some swelling. This is common and should only last for about 5 – 10 days. If the side effects last longer or seem excessive, please do not hesitate to call Advanced Dermatology. Most patients see some results immediately with better results developing over time. Your face should appear younger, softer, and have a natural glow. Radiesse tends to last longer than some of the other fillers — around 1 – 2 years. You should talk to your injector about when to schedule your next treatment to maintain your results.
