Radiesse Q&A

What is Radiesse?

Radiesse is a dermal filler that plumps up saggy, loose skin. It also stimulates your body’s natural collagen production over time. Collagen is an essential protein that helps build your connective tissues for natural-looking, lasting results.

Non-toxic and hypoallergenic, Radiesse can safely fill in wrinkles and deep folds around your mouth and nose, other areas of the face, and the hands.

What can Radiesse treat?

Radiesse can effectively treat moderate to severe wrinkles and deep folds. As a biocompatible filler, it can:

  • Tighten loose skin
  • Fill in nasolabial folds
  • Minimize marionette lines
  • Sculpt saggy jowls
  • Restore sunken temples
  • Improve under-eye bags
  • Smooth forehead lines
  • Enhance skin tone and texture
  • Fill in deep acne scars
  • Contour the jaw

Radiesse can also minimize the appearance of vertical lip lines and restore volume to thin lips.

How does Radiesse work?

What separates Radiesse apart from other dermal fillers is its ability to stimulate collagen in your skin. Radiesse uses calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) suspended in a gel-like solution to lift and firm lax skin.

Once injected into your skin, Radiesse produces an instant plumping effect. Over time, the filler spreads throughout your areas of lost volume while stimulating your natural collagen production. This aspect of Radiesse helps you maintain your results for firmer, more vibrant skin.

What can I expect from Radiesse injections?

You can expect Radiesse injections to take 15 minutes or less at Sargon Dental, depending on how many areas you want to treat. Results from Radiesse are instant, and you can return home immediately after treatment.

Because its formula is biocompatible, it may cause fewer side effects than other fillers. You can expect minor swelling, bruising, itching, and tenderness at the injection site, but these side effects should subside within hours or days.

How long does Radiesse last?

Compared to other fillers, Radiesse may offer more long-lasting results. Most people can expect to maintain their results for 1-2 years. Since the microspheres in Radiesse break down over time to stimulate collagen, your results can last even longer than expected.

Radiesse is a safe and effective dermal filler, so you can return to Dr. T for maintenance treatments to preserve your results.
