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.

Treatment Areas:

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:
  • Be bothered by facial wrinkles, lines, or folds.
  • 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.

What To expect

Here’s how we take care of you before, during, and after your treatment.
Before Your Treatment
  • Pre-treatment instructions: We will provide specific instructions to follow before the procedure. This may include avoiding certain medications or supplements that can increase the risk of bruising or bleeding.
During Your Treatment
  • 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.
After Your Treatment
  • 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.

Can Radiesse be used on any skin type or color?

Can Radiesse be combined with other treatments?

Are Radiesse results immediate?

Yes, Radiesse provides an immediate volumizing effect. You will notice visible improvement in the treated areas right after the injection.

Can Radiesse be used to correct deep wrinkles?

Yes, Radiesse is effective in correcting deep wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds and marionette lines. It adds volume to these areas, resulting in a smoother and more youthful appearance.

Is Radiesse reversible?

Radiesse is not reversible. However, its effects are temporary, and if desired, the treatment can be adjusted or modified as needed during subsequent sessions.

Can Radiesse be used to augment the lips?

Radiesse is not typically used for lip augmentation, as it is a firmer filler more suited for deeper tissue and volume restoration. Other dermal fillers specifically formulated for lip enhancement are available.

Can Radiesse be used to improve the appearance of aging hands?

What is the difference between Radiesse and Sculptra?

Radiesse and Sculptra are both popular dermal fillers used for facial rejuvenation, but they differ in their composition and mechanisms of action. Radiesse is composed of calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres, which provide immediate volumizing effects and stimulate collagen production over time. In contrast, Sculptra contains poly-L-lactic acid, gradually stimulating collagen production, resulting in a more subtle and gradual improvement. While Radiesse is well-suited for correcting wrinkles and restoring volume, Sculptra is often used for overall facial rejuvenation and addressing volume loss. Additionally, Radiesse typically offers longer-lasting results, lasting up to 1-2 years, while Sculptra may require a series of treatments for optimal results lasting up to 2 years. Ultimately, the choice between Radiesse and Sculptra depends on individual needs, treatment goals, and the advice of a qualified healthcare professional.

How does Radiess differ from traditional hyaluronic acid dermal fillers?

Radiesse differs from traditional hyaluronic acid (HA) dermal fillers in its composition and mechanism of action. While HA fillers use a gel-like substance to add volume and plumpness to the skin instantly, Radiesse is composed of calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres that provide both immediate volume restoration and stimulate collagen production over time. This dual-action approach provides immediate results and promotes natural collagen synthesis, leading to prolonged rejuvenation. Additionally, Radiesse's unique composition makes it a suitable choice for deeper wrinkles and volume loss, whereas HA fillers are often used for finer lines and superficial areas.

How much does Radiesse cost in Winnipeg?

Radiesse is $499 per session, and often multiple sessions are required.

Who should avoid Radiesse treatments?

While Radiesse is a safe and effective treatment for most individuals, there are certain situations where it may not be recommended, such as:

Pregnant or breastfeeding women: The safety of Radiesse during pregnancy and breastfeeding has not been established, so it is generally recommended to wait until after this period.

Those with known allergies or sensitivities: Individuals with a history of severe allergies or hypersensitivity reactions, particularly to any of the components of Radiesse, should avoid the treatment.

Active skin infections or inflammation: If you have an active skin infection or inflammation in the area where Radiesse would be injected, it is advisable to wait until the condition has resolved before undergoing treatment.

Bleeding disorders or medications that increase bleeding risk: If you have a bleeding disorder or are taking medications that increase the risk of bleeding, it may be necessary to avoid Radiesse or adjust your treatment plan.

Individuals with unrealistic expectations: It is important to have realistic expectations about the outcomes of Radiesse. If your expectations cannot be met or if you are seeking a result that is not achievable with this treatment, our staff may recommend alternative options.
