What is Radiesse?
Radiesse is a Health Canada-approved dermal filler designed to restore volume and smooth out wrinkles, giving your skin a fresh and vibrant appearance. It is a safe and effective solution for those looking to reverse the signs of aging and regain their youthful radiance.
How does Radiesse work?
Radiesse is composed of tiny calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres suspended in a gel carrier. When injected into the skin, it provides an immediate volumizing effect, plumping up sagging or hollow areas. Over time, Radiesse stimulates the body's natural collagen production, further enhancing long-lasting results. Unlike other dermal fillers, Radiesse works as a filler and a bio-stimulator, promoting the growth of new collagen fibers for improved skin elasticity and firmness.
Radiesse is versatile and can address various concerns across different areas of the face and hands. It is particularly effective in treating:
Nasolabial Folds: Also known as smile lines, these creases extend from the sides of the nose to the corners of the mouth. Radiesse can smoothen these lines, creating a more youthful appearance.
Marionette Lines: These lines run from the corners of the mouth to the chin, often making one's face look sad or droopy. Radiesse can help redefine the jawline and soften these lines.
Cheeks and Temples: Radiesse can restore volume to sunken cheeks, providing a lifted and youthful contour. It can also fill in hollowed temples, rejuvenating the face's overall appearance.
Jawline and Chin: By enhancing the definition of the jawline and augmenting the chin, Radiesse can help achieve a more balanced and sculpted facial profile.
Backs of Hands: Radiesse can rejuvenate the appearance of aging hands by restoring volume to hollow areas and reducing the visibility of tendons and veins.
Who is an ideal candidate for Radiesse?
- Radiesse is suitable for both men and women who desire a non-surgical solution to combat the signs of aging. Ideal candidates may:

- Experience volume loss in the cheeks, temples, or hands.
- Desire a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance.
- Have realistic expectations about the outcomes of the treatment.
- Be in generally good health and have no contraindications to the procedure.
- Preparation: The treatment area will be cleansed, and a topical anesthetic or numbing cream may be applied to enhance comfort.
- Injection: Using a fine needle, we will carefully inject Radiesse into the targeted areas. The number of injections and amount of product used will depend on your specific treatment plan and desired outcome.
- Immediate Results: You will notice an immediate volumizing effect in the treated areas. Some redness, swelling, or bruising may occur, but these are typically mild and temporary.
- Post-treatment care: We will provide specific post-treatment instructions, such as avoiding excessive sun exposure, rigorous exercise, or certain medications that may increase the risk of bruising.
- Recovery and Downtime: Radiesse injections usually have minimal downtime, allowing you to resume your daily activities immediately. However, you may experience some temporary swelling or tenderness in the treated areas, which typically resolves within a few days.
- Long-lasting Effects: Over time, Radiesse stimulates collagen production, leading to ongoing improvement and long-lasting results that can last up to 1-2 years.
- Follow-up appointments: We will schedule follow-up appointments to assess your progress, address any concerns, and determine if any additional treatments or adjustments are needed.
