What is Radiesse?

Radiesse is a revolutionary dermal filler that quickly and effectively eliminates even the deepest wrinkles and creases, like nasolabial folds. With Radiesse, you can restore your youthful skin with smoothness and vitality.

It is made up of Calcium Hydroxylapatite microspheres, which provide immediate volume to the face when injected. Unlike other fillers, Radiesse is stiffer than HA gel fillers, providing good support in areas such as the cheeks. It has received FDA approval for esthetic facial augmentation and can be used to treat certain areas of the face and hands.

What can Radiesse do for you?

With Radiesse Austin and Dallas patients have a dermal filler that can help improve the appearance of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds.

But it’s not just about aesthetics - it can also improve your quality of life by boosting your confidence and helping you feel more comfortable in your own skin. Here are some of the benefits of receiving Radiesse treatment:

  • Smoothing out wrinkles and folds
  • Restoring volume to sagging or hollowed areas
  • Enhancing facial contours
  • Improving the appearance of scars
  • Rejuvenating the hands

Am I a candidate for Radiesse?

When it comes to eligibility for Radiesse Dallas and Austin patients are not likely to be turned away easily. Most people are eligible for Radiesse treatment. However, there are some factors that may make you ineligible or require additional precautions. If you have a history of severe allergies or anaphylaxis, you may not be a good candidate for Radiesse. If you have the following concerns, you may be a candidate:

  • Moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds
  • Wrinkled or folded areas of the skin, most often on the face
  • Loss of volume in the face, cheeks, or jawline
  • Sagging skin in the mid-face area
  • Scars that need to be filled in
  • Rejuvenation of hands

Lower Face

Radiesse is an excellent option for treating concerns in the lower face, including smile lines, oral commissures, marionette lines, pre-jowl folds, and chin wrinkles. These areas can often become more pronounced as we age due to a loss of collagen and elastin in the skin.


Radiesse can treat volume loss and minimize the visibility of veins and tendons on the hands. As we age, our hands can lose volume and appear more wrinkled or “crepey.”


During the aging process, collagen is inevitable, even in the jawline. Radiesse can improve jawline contour by adding volume where it’s needed most.

Consultation and Preparation

A consultation should be your first step when considering Radiesse. During the consultation, we will discuss your medical history, current medications, allergies, and desired results.

We will also examine your skin and determine the appropriate treatment areas, the amount of product to be used, and any potential side effects. To prepare for treatment, patients should avoid blood-thinning medications such as aspirin, ibuprofen, and vitamin E for at least one week before the treatment to reduce the risk of bruising. Patients should also avoid alcohol for 24 hours before the treatment and avoid any strenuous exercise or activity for 24-48 hours after the treatment. Staying hydrated and maintaining a healthy diet are recommended to promote optimal healing.

The Radiesse Procedure

The Radiesse procedure typically takes 15-30 minutes to perform, depending on the size of the treatment area. Before the procedure, a topical anesthetic or numbing cream may be applied to the treatment area to reduce any discomfort.

Once the area is numb, the medical professional will inject Radiesse into the desired treatment area using a fine needle. The medical professional may massage the area after the injection to ensure that the product is evenly distributed and to promote optimal results.

Results, Recovery, and Aftercare

You may see immediate results following the procedure, as the filler helps to plump up your skin and smooth out wrinkles and fine lines. These results may continue to improve over the next several weeks as your body produces more collagen around the Radiesse particles.

Following the procedure, you may experience some mild swelling, redness, or bruising at the injection site, but these typically subside within a few days. You should avoid touching or applying pressure to the treated area for the first 24 hours to ensure that the filler stays in place. To maintain results, you should avoid exposing the treated area to excessive heat or cold, as well as avoiding direct sunlight and tanning beds. You should also maintain a healthy skincare regimen, including regular moisturizing and sunscreen use. The results of Radiesse can last for up to a year or more, depending on factors such as your age, lifestyle, and metabolism. Touch-up treatments may be recommended to maintain optimal results.

It is generally not recommended to undergo cosmetic procedures like Radiesse injections while pregnant or breastfeeding.

The frequency of follow-up treatments will depend on several factors, including the individual patient’s response to treatment and their desired outcome. In general, most patients schedule touch-up appointments every 12-18 months to maintain their results.
