Radiesse is an injectable filler that restores volume and diminishes the appearance of wrinkles on your face. Radiesse can also restore lost volume in the backs of your hands. By stimulating the collagen in your skin, Radiesse produces effects that last even after the filler has worn off.
What is Radiesse?
Radiesse is a dermal filler formulated with minerals that naturally occur in your body. These minerals help to stimulate collagen production in your tissues and form a natural structure similar to your connective tissue. Radiesse will instantly give you the volume that you want while triggering the development of natural collagen for long-lasting results.
Am I a candidate for Radiesse?
You could be a candidate for Radiesse if you would like to restore volume in your face or hands or would like to reduce the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles. Candidates ideally:
- Are adults between 30 and 60
- Desire enhanced facial volume or restored volume on their hands
- Want to have smoother, more youthful-looking skin
- Have no severe allergies
To find out if you are a candidate for Radiesse, schedule a consultation with Dr. Sedgh. During your consultation, you will be able to discuss your cosmetic concerns and your medical history which will enable Dr. Sedgh to determine the optimal treatment for you.
The Radiesse treatment
The treatment session takes approximately 15 minutes, which includes the application of a numbing agent to reduce any potential pain or discomfort. Once the numbing agent has taken effect, Radiesse will be strategically injected into specific points around the treatment area to create a smooth and natural-looking enhancement. There may be some slight swelling or bruising that will subside over the following days. Otherwise you can expect to return to your daily routine.

When will I see results, and how long do they last?
You will see the results immediately after treatment, with full results becoming apparent one week later. These results can be added to or maintained over time by scheduling additional appointments as you see fit. Results with Radiesse typically last between 6 months to a year, with some effects lasting up to two years, depending on the treatment area.
