Radiesse Filler InjectionsRadiesse & Your Local Laser Clinic or Med Spa

Radiesse is a filler injection composed of very small and smooth calcium hydroxylapitite microspheres which are suspended in a water-based gel carrier. Calcium Hydroxylapitite is a biocompatible, biodegradable material identical in composition to the mineral portion of teeth and bone. Radiesse is used to fill moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds such as nasolabial folds. Radiesse is generally not used to enhance the lips or lip line.

The Radiesse gel and microspheres form a “scaffold” that stimulates natural collagen production and encourages tissue growth in and around the injection area. The body absorbs the gel carrier as collagen has begun to infiltrate the area thus replacing the gel with natural tissue. The microspheres continue to provide support while the body completes this process. Eventually, the microspheres are safely absorbed by the body. This entire reconstruction process can take anywhere up to 3 years providing additional injections are administered to maintain even results.

Radiesse injections are very similar other Hyaluronic Acid fillers.

After the injection the medical provider should provide the patient with specific post-care instructions which may include:

  • Avoiding rubbing, movement or massaging of the area that could cause the Radiesse to migrate.
  • Don’t apply makeup for the next 24 hours.
  • No sun and heat exposure.
  • Injections for Radiesse can typically last from 6 to 18 months with an average of 11 months for nasolabial folds.

Pain? Physicians use a variety of pain management techniques during treatment to ensure patient comfort. Ask your physician about which techniques are right for you.

Are there any side effects? There have been very few side effects reported in clinical trials and actual usage. However, you may experience some common injection-related reactions, such as mild irritation, edema, swelling, itching, discoloration, or tenderness at the injection site. These conditions typically resolve themselves within one to two days.

Before being injected with your chosen dermal filler, you’ll probably receive local anesthesia, for which you’ll have to wait to work before you get the enhancing injection. The waiting is annoying; the pain more so. But doctors are working on new techniques that make getting an injectable treatment less painful and time-consuming.
