Radiesse filler treatment

Radiesse is a type of dermal filler that is very different from hyaluronic acid fillers. Like Sculptra, Radiesse stimulates the body to produce new collagen. Your skin will improve and become fuller, firmer and more elastic. Radiesse is mainly used to restore lost facial support.

What does Radiesse do?

Radiesse provides immediate results. After the treatment you will see an instant difference. Besides these immediate results, Radiesse also stimulates the body to produce new collagen. The end result will stay visible for 12 to 18 months.

Why do we use Radiesse?

Radiesse is used to fill in wrinkles and to improve facial contours, such as:

  • Restoring facial support, acting as scaffolding.

  • Improving the contours of the jawline. For men as well!

  • Rejuvenating the hands.

What is Radiesse?

Radiesse is a long-lasting, injectable dermal filler that is used to augmentate soft tissue, such as facial wrinkles, lines and contours. Radiesse is not a permanent filler. Approved by the FDA, it consists of calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres suspended in an aqueous gel carrier. Radiesse was the first dermal filler that not only offered instant volumizing effects for wrinkles, lines and contours, but stimulated the body to produce new collagen as well. These unique properties will result in a youthful and healthy look, a full face with defined contours. The results last for a year or longer. Radiesse is completely safe, biocompatible, and 100% biodegradable.

 The treatment with Radiesse

Depending on the treatment area and the wishes of the client, an anesthetic will be administered beforehand. Radiesse injections are done by cannula or with a thin needle. After the treatment, the skin might be slightly red and swollen. Some bruising may also appear. These bruises will fade away quickly and are easily camouflaged by foundation or some powder. The swelling will subside after two to five days. Our doctors can advise you on how to deal with the swelling. The Radiesse treatment will take between 15 and 30 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area.

The results of Radiesse

The effects of a Radiesse treatment are visible immediately. In weeks following the treatment, the results will improve further. The final result will keep for 12 to 18 months

How long do the effects of Radiesse last?

The effects of a Radiesse treatment are long-lasting. You will enjoy the results of your Radiesse treatment for 12 to 18 months. With a small touch-up treatment in between, results will last even longer.

Maintaining the result

We advise you to come back 3 months after your treatment for a check-up, to see how much of the gel has been absorbed and how much new collagen has formed. The absorption of the gel and the production of new collagen should be well-balanced after 3 months time. If the amount of the Radiesse gel that has been absorbed has overtaken the production of new collagen, a touch-up treatment might offer a solution.

Q & A

Frequently asked questions

What is Radiesse?

Radiesse is a filler based on calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA). The filler is gradually broken down by the body but cannot be dissolved immediately.

What are the advantages of Radiesse?

Radiesse provides immediate results, but also stimulates the production of your body’s own collagen. This ensures a result that is both long-lasting as well as natural.

Is Radiesse suitable for every facial area?

No. Radiesse is mainly used for support in the lower half of the face, and can also be used to lift the cheekbones. Your cosmetic doctor can advise you about the possibilities.

Can Radiesse be combined with other types of fillers?

Absolutely! Radiesse is usually combined with hyaluronic acid fillers to achieve optimal results. Every face is different, and therefore every treatment plan will be different. Let one of our cosmetic doctors advise you during a free consultation.
