Best Candidates

Women and men who are in good overall health and want to correct their mild to moderate wrinkles and lines are ideal patients for Radiesse treatments. It can improve marionette lines, smile lines, chin wrinkles, pre-jowl folds, and fine lines that form in the edges of the lips. You shouldn't receive this treatment if you have an allergy to lidocaine or other ingredients in Radiesse. Be sure to talk to Dr. Benson if you have any allergies (whether mild or severe) and any relevant medical history. If you are pregnant, breastfeeding, might be pregnant, or are trying to conceive in the next several years, you shouldn't get Radiesse injections.

What to Expect

Radiesse wrinkle injections are performed at The Art of Braces in around 30 – 60 minutes once you have completed your consultation. To start the procedure, you will lay in a relaxed position as the injection sites are cleaned and marked. Many patients feel tolerable discomfort throughout the procedure at the first prick, but if preferred, a local anesthetic may be spread on the treatment sites. The Radiesse dose, determined during your consultation, will be placed in a fine needle. The pre-marked site of injection will help the injector to carefully administer Radiesse into the needed areas. As soon as the treatment is done, a compress will be held to the treated areas to reduce bruising and swelling.

Recovery

Following your Radiesse injection, you may have mild redness, swelling, and bruising. This is normal and could last for around a week. These side effects may typically be camouflaged with cosmetics. If the bruising, swelling, or redness lasts longer than ten days or if you are concerned, please contact The Art of Braces. Many patients have visible results minutes after the treatment with final results appearing in a month or so. Your face will look softer, younger, and lifted. Radiesse typically lasts longer compared to other dermal fillers — about 1 – 2 years. You can talk to Dr. Saoly Benson at your appointment about how soon to get your next injection to touch up your results.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does Radiesse cost?
The cost of Radiesse is dependent on the number of syringes needed to achieve your desired outcome. During your consultation at The Art of Braces, Dr. Benson will discuss your expected results and determine the amount needed to achieve them. She will also discuss the estimated costs for your treatment.

How does Radiesse compare to other fillers?
Fillers, such as Radiesse, are considered temporary, even though the results may last up to a full year. Common filler procedures include collagen, calcium hydroxyapatite, hyaluronic acid, polylactic acid, and the heaviest of the fillers, PMMA. Radiesse is the only dermal filler composed of calcium-based microspheres, which are comparable to hyaluronic acid injectable fillers due to the natural ability to stimulate collagen production. During your consultation, we will discuss the various fillers and evaluate your facial tone, laxity, and volume levels to help you decide which filler may be the best choice for you.

What are the possible side effects of Radiesse?
Severe and/or abnormal side effects are rare with Radiesse. Immediately following treatment, patients may experience mild redness, bruising, numbness, and/or itching. These are temporary side effects that usually disappear within a day or two.

What other procedures can I combine with Radiesse?
Radiesse injections can be performed in combination with other injectable treatments to help you achieve your ideal results. Many patients combine dermal fillers, such as Radiesse, with BOTOX or other muscle relaxants to create an overall younger-looking appearance. Talk to Dr. Benson during your consultation to learn more about other procedures that can be combined with Radiesse.

Are Radiesse injections painful?
Typically, patients do not need any form of numbing prior to their injection treatment. However, a local anesthetic can be provided if you are worried about any discomfort. Most patients only experience slight discomfort during the actual injections.
