If you are looking for a non- surgical face lift or you just want to smooth out a few fine lines or fill in deep set wrinkles, injectables are for you.Dermal fillers approved by the FDA are minimally invasive and very safe. As with any procedure, there are possible risks, the most common being post-procedure bruising and swelling which are usually very minimal and resolve quickly.Dermal filler treatments typically take 20-40 minutes and the amount of dermal filler needed will depend on volume loss and the areas you would like to restore to its natural beauty. You will see results immediately after treatment. You can bring back that youthful look and replenish your natural collagen by restoring lost volume with Radiesse. The Radiesse facial injection treatment has a unique formula that stimulates the production of new collagen helping to correct lines and wrinkles for up to a year.
Radiesse is a resorbable, non-dissolvable injectable dermal filler comprised of calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres. When Radiesse is injected, the thick Radiesse beads create a scaffolding under the skin, that stimulates new collagen production. Radiesse is ideal for correcting moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, enhancing/lifting and the cheeks and jaw, and replenishing volume loss.

Radiesse consists of calcium-based microspheres in a water-based gel with lidocaine for nearly pain-free injections. Areas of the face that are treatable include:

  • Facial wrinkles
  • Smile lines
  • Frown lines
  • Marionette lines

What you should know?

After your Radiesse injections, you may experience redness and swelling, bruising may also be visible. You may experience tenderness at injection site for a few days after your treatment. Depending upon the areas treated and products used, you may feel “firmness” in the treated areas for 1 to 2 weeks after treatment. Over time, the areas will soften and “settle.” For discomfort you may take Tylenol. Arnica creams can be topically applied to aid bruising, swelling and pain after treatment.




How do I know if Radiesse is the best Dermal filler for me?
During your consultation at SkinShine Med Spa, your injection specialist and skincare expert will address your skin concerns, discuss your goals and then recommend whether Radiesse is the best dermal filler for you, based on your unique needs.
How long does an appointment for Radiesse injection takes?
The exact time depends on the area being treated, but generally Radiesse injections takes half an hour to an hour to complete.
Are Radiesse injections painful?
Radiesse injections are very tolerable. The injections cause very mild, very temporary discomfort, and feel similar to a slight pinching sensation and some pressure. A topical numbing agent can be applied prior to injections, to ease any discomfort; However, most find the injections extremely tolerable without any numbing agents. Ice is applied to the treated area to aid swelling and ease discomfort.
How is Radiesse administered?
Radiesse injections are implanted intradermally through a fine gauge needle into the discussed treated area.
How long does it take for Radiesse to work?
The results from Radiesse are immediate; However, swelling is apparent after Radiesse injections, and it can generally take up to two weeks for any swelling or possible bruising to subside. After a few weeks Radiesse will have settled, and continual improvement can be seen due to increased collagen production after treatment.
How long does Radiesse last?
The duration for Radiesse can last anywhere from 18-24 months; However, some patients may metabolize Radiesse quicker than others.
Is there downtime after being treated with Radiesse?
Your results will emerge gradually, and will last up to two years. You will not see immediate results, as Sculptra Aesthetic delivers its full effects over the course of several months. You will see subtle results in the reduction of wrinkles and folds by comparing images before your treatment with images several months after treatment.
