Welcome to the golden age of anti-aging. As a growing number of people search for ways to keep their skin looking healthy and young, innovations in aesthetic medicine are making it possible to improve signs of aging without undergoing an invasive surgical procedure.

Injectables like Radiesse are some of the most popular tools in the modern anti-aging arsenal. With Radiesse, Dr. Harris can instantly add volume and lift to the areas of your face that need it most. Deep wrinkles, folds and hollows are filled in minutes — and on top of these instant, age-defying benefits, Radiesse stimulates the natural production of collagen to restore youthful volume, strength and elasticity to your skin over time. This collagen growth continues for several months and in many patients lasts for a year or more.

What Is Radiesse?

Radiesse is a volumizing filler that improves deep facial creases and corrects volume loss on the face and the backs of the hands. This unique dermal filler contains calcium-based microspheres suspended in gel. The microspheres are similar to minerals that naturally exist in the body, so they are safe to use and typically do not require allergy testing before treatment. Once injected, the microspheres act as a scaffold that immediately plumps the skin and gives it a smoother surface. Radiesse continues to work in the weeks following treatment by stimulating your own natural collagen to grow. The gel is eventually absorbed and the calcium-based microspheres are metabolized by your body, so only your own natural collagen is left behind.

How Is Radiesse Different From Other Brands Of Dermal Filler?

Collagen is a structural protein that helps your skin look taut and youthful. As you age, your body produces less collagen, causing your skin to grow lax, develop wrinkles and lose its defined, lifted contours. Radiesse — unlike dermal fillers that just add temporary volume to the skin — is a collagen stimulator. It is the only dermal filler composed of calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres, which boost the activity of skin-renewing cells called fibroblasts. The reactivated fibroblasts produce new collagen to strengthen and rebuild the skin from within. Because it enhances your body’s natural capabilities, Radiesse can achieve longer-lasting improvements than most dermal fillers made with hyaluronic acid.

What Concerns Can I Address With Radiesse?

Radiesse can provide lift and definition to the following areas of the face:

  • Chin wrinkles
  • Pre-jowl folds
  • Corners of the mouth
  • Marionette lines
  • Nasolabial folds (smile lines)

Radiesse can also improve signs of aging in the backs of the hands by:

  • Restoring lost volume
  • Diminishing the appearance of prominent tendons
  • Reducing the appearance of visible veins

What Can I Expect From a Radiesse Treatment?

As the first step of your Sacramento Radiesse treatment, Dr. Harris will ask you about your concerns and expectations, and examine your skin to determine whether you are a good candidate for Radiesse injections. The injections are administered using a fine needle to minimize discomfort. A topical anesthetic may also be used to make the treatment as painless as possible. Although the number of injections and the amount of Radiesse needed varies between patients, all Radiesse procedures are quick enough to be done over a lunch break.

Is There Downtime After Radiesse Injections?

Once your injections are complete, you can leave our Rocklin office and immediately resume whatever level of activity feels most comfortable to you. You will have no required downtime or complicated aftercare instructions to adhere to. Some patients experience redness, swelling, bruising, tenderness or itching around the injection sites. These reactions are normal and generally only last for a short time. You will be informed of all risks associated with Radiesse before your treatment and you are welcome to call us at any time if you have questions or concerns.

What Results Can I Expect From My Radiesse Treatment?

Because of its unique composition, Radiesse has both short-term and long-term benefits. Like any filler, you will be able to see some results right away. The gel will instantly add natural-looking volume under your skin. Sunken or shallow areas of your face will look plumper. Wrinkles and folds will be smoother and less noticeable. Sinking or poorly defined contours will be lifted and refined. With many of the most popular dermal fillers, these effects would last for a few months until the product is metabolized by your body. With Radiesse, however, the benefits last much longer due to its collagen-generating properties.

How Long Will My Radiesse Results Last?

Radiesse activates the regenerative potential deep within your skin for a long-lasting effect. Once the CaHA microspheres are absorbed, the new collagen and elastin your body has produced will continue to provide strength, elasticity and volume to your skin. The effects of Radiesse can last up to 12 months or more with optimal treatment. Although some patients prefer a more temporary filler, many consider the longevity and durability of Radiesse to be highly desirable.

What Are the Benefits of Radiesse?

These are a few of the reasons Physicians Laser patients choose Radiesse to regain a youthful, refreshed appearance:

  • FDA-approved and backed by years of clinical studies
  • A convenient in-office treatment that is a true “lunchtime procedure”
  • Highly customizable to your individual needs and goals
  • Minimal discomfort
  • No downtime
  • Initial results are visible right away
  • Long-term results can last a year or more
  • Feels soft and looks natural
  • Can be combined with other cosmetic treatments

Am I a Good Candidate for Radiesse?

If you have moderate to severe wrinkles and folds, Radiesse may be an ideal nonsurgical solution to help you feel better in your skin. Radiesse is appropriate for most adult men and women who want a fresher, younger appearance without surgery. It is not recommended for individuals who are pregnant or breastfeeding, have a history of severe allergies, have a bleeding disorder or have an active skin infection in the treatment area. To find out if Radiesse could be right for you, request an in-person consultation with a Physicians Laser specialist.
