Radiesse® is a popular type of dermal filler, and it has the ability to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines and facial folds. Since it’s a non-surgical procedure, it serves as an excellent alternative to a facelift.
There are several invasive treatment options that can deliver the same results, but they require the cutting and removal of tissue. If you’d like to diminish the appearance of frown lines, laugh lines and crow’s feet without surgery, then you could benefit from Radiesse®.
Minimize the Appearance of Facial Wrinkles
Since it has the consistency of gel, Radiesse® can be injected under your skin. As an injectable solution, it contains small microspheres or particles which are made of calcium hydroxylapatite.
This is a compound that occurs naturally within the body, so you don’t have to endure annoying allergy testing. By injecting Radiesse® into specific areas of your face, we can address several different issues. First, we’re able to restore lost facial fullness.

Many of our patients choose this injectable over implant procedures because it can restore fullness and eliminate facial wrinkles. It’s especially useful for eliminating marionette lines and laugh lines.
How the Treatments Work
The filler will be skillfully injected into the target areas, and as a result, you’ll gain lost volume in these areas. Since it’s a natural compound, Radiesse® doesn’t come with the same risks associated with other treatment options. After the procedure, you’ll notice immediate results, but it can take up to one week to see the full benefits of the treatment.
What Areas Can Be Treated?
Radiesse® is commonly used for deep wrinkles, and it can restore the contours of your lower face and cheeks. It’s particularly useful for adding volume to nasolabial folds, which are called smile lines.
We can even use Radiesse® to restore lost volume and reduce the wrinkles around your mouth, cheeks and nose. If you have sunken cheeks, this injectable serves as one of the best treatment options for this issue.
