Radiesse San Diego

What is Radiesse?

As we mature we lose facial fat where we want it (volume loss) and gain it where we don’t want it (volume shifting), we lose muscle mass, and our bones also thin. We also lose the elasticity of our skin and as a result of gravity, environmental factors, and nutrition this leads to the formation of wrinkles and sagging skin.

Radiesse® is a long lasting filler composed of calcium-based microspheres suspended in gel. These microspheres or particles form a scaffold under the skin, providing structure and stimulating your own natural collagen to grow.

Radiesse® does more than just “fill-in” lines and facial wrinkles – it replenishes volume and stimulates the production of your own natural collagen with results that last up to 18 months depending on the area treated, the amount of product used as well as your body’s ability to break down the calcium particles.

How It Works

Radiesse® Volumizing Filler is comprised of Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres suspended in an aqueous gel carrier.

Once injected, it provides immediate volume and correction but continues to work by stimulating the body to produce its own natural collagen.

Over time, the gel is absorbed and the body metabolizes the CaHA microspheres leaving behind only your own natural collagen

Who is a candidate for Radiesse?

Any woman or man who wants to diminish deep facial wrinkles and folds as well as improve facial shaping and contouring. Radiesse® is also great for those who want to conceal bothersome facial scars and those who are looking for a longer-lasting wrinkle filler.

What areas can be treated?

Radiesse® immediately reduces the appearance of wrinkles and folds. It can also be used for:

  • Improving cheek and chin contour
  • Filling marionette lines
  • Hand rejuvenation
  • Reducing the appearance of certain scars
  • Filling nasolabial folds

How long does Radiesse last?

Results are clinically proven to last from 10 to 18 months depending on the area treated, the amount of product used, and your body’s ability to break down calcium particles.

Can other fillers be used with Radiesse?

Other fillers such as Voluma, Juvederm and Belotero have unique cohesive properties and densities. They can be used in layers to fill more superficial lines and wrinkles.

Other Treatments That Lift and Tighten Sagging Skin

Fillers address volume loss and wrinkles, but can be combined with skin tightening, lifting and resurfacing treatments such as Ultherapy, Thermage, Fractional CO2, Fraxel, Micropen, and PRP for better results.


Before & After Photos

This 57 year old patient was treated with a number of fillers as well as BOTOX® to receive what we call the Nowak Liquid Facelift! 1 Radiesse was used on her cheeks and 6 Juvederms were used for her smile lines, the corner of her mouth, the border of her lips, and her marionette lines while BOTOX® was used to treat her forehead, crows feet, and inner eyebrow. This amazing result was performed entirely with Botox® and fillers such as Radiesse and Juvederm without any surgery or anesthesia.
This 64 year old patient received syringes of Radiesse for the smile lines, the upper cheeks, and the marionette lines. In this after photo taken immediately after the procedure, you can see the great result that she received.
This 42 year old patient had concerns about looking tired and about the crease on her lower eyelid; after just one syringe of Radiesse, you can see a refreshed and younger appearance.
This 49 year old female patient addressed concerns about the appearance of her hands and wanted a younger look; after one syringe of Radiesse on her hands, she is feeling much more comfortable and believes that her hands more accurately reflects her age and how she feels.
This 54 year old female patient has been a smoker for 30 years. With only 1 Radiesse and 2 Juvederms, you can see the improvement in her smile lines, marionette lines, as well as the borders and corner of her lips. Be sure to check out her video testimonial!
