When will I see the results of my RADIESSE® treatment?
You’ll see added volume immediately after your treatment and continue to see improvements over the following weeks as your collagen production increases. As with any other filler or bio-stimulator, though, it takes about 3-5 days for swelling to go down after your RADIESSE® treatment.
How long do RADIESSE® results last?
For many of our patients, RADIESSE® injections last a year or more.
The longevity of your RADIESSE® results depends on the placement of your injections, the amount of product used, and your body’s natural response to the treatment.
What is RADIESSE® treatment like?
RADIESSE® is a quick, routine procedure that usually takes about 15 minutes.
We’ll apply a numbing cream to minimize discomfort before injecting the treatment areas.
You can return home or back to work immediately after your treatment.
Do RADIESSE® injections hurt?
As with any injectable, you may feel slight pain during your RADIESSE® injections depending on your pain tolerance. We use a very fine needle to inject the treatment in very small amounts to minimize discomfort.
What can’t be treated with RADIESSE®?
We don’t recommend using RADIESSE® in the tear troughs because unlike HA fillers, it’s a thick substance that doesn’t work well around thin skinned areas. We typically use HA fillers like Restylane® or JUVÉDERM® to restore volume in the tear troughs.
