Radiesse® is an FDA-approved dermal filler that can be injected to treat signs of aging in the face and hands. The aesthetics experts at Enfuse Medical Spa & Hair Restoration are considered top providers of Radiesse® in Chicago and have helped countless patients rejuvenate their look with this versatile, non-surgical treatment.
What Is Radiesse®?
This cosmetic injectable has calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) as its active ingredient. It is classified as a biostimulatory filler because it increases the body’s natural collagen production. Our patients love that Radiesse® can provide both short-term results and long-term enhancement.
Like hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers such as those in the Juvéderm® and Restylane® families, Radiesse® can fill and smooth out wrinkled and creased skin to restore more youthful, aesthetic facial contours. Unlike HA fillers, Radiesse® also stimulates collagen formation so that patients will enjoy ongoing improvements in firmness and overall skin quality in the months following their treatment.
Am I a Good Candidate for Radiesse®?
The aging process causes the body to produce less collagen, contributing to the development of folds, creases, wrinkles, and skin laxity that a daily topical skin care regimen cannot resolve. Since Radiesse® works to correct visible signs of aging, as well as boost collagen production, it can be an excellent option for patients with cosmetic concerns such as:
- Moderate to deep folds that run from the nose to the mouth (nasolabial folds)
- Vertical creases that extend from the corners of the mouth to the jaw (marionette lines)
- Textural anomalies from prior acne (acne scars) or other skin conditions
- Wrinkles from overexposure to the sun
- Depressions or folds from dental issues
- Lost volume and prominent veins on the backs of the hands
Your medical history will be reviewed during your initial consultation to ensure that Radiesse® is the right choice for you. It is essential to share complete information regarding any known allergies at this appointment so that we can create the safest, most effective treatment plan for you.
What to Expect During a Radiesse® Procedure
After cleansing the skin with an antiseptic, an ultrafine needle is used to inject Radiesse® at one or more sites in the treatment area. Mild, momentary discomfort may occur with each injection, though this treatment is generally well-tolerated by patients. If preferred, a topical anesthetic can be applied before beginning the injection process to ensure your comfort.
What to Expect Following a Radiesse® Procedure?
Recovery time will not be necessary after your Radiesse® injections. Patients can resume their regular activities within 24 hours of receiving Radiesse® injections unless otherwise advised.
Some patients experience temporary post-treatment symptoms like redness, irritation at the injection sites, or numbness in the treatment area. These effects typically subside naturally without intervention within a day or so.
How Much Does a Radiesse® Treatment Cost?
The price of your Radiesse® procedure will be based on the number of areas being treated and the quantity of Radiesse® needed to achieve your desired outcome. Your personalized treatment plan will be reviewed with you during your consultation, including complete cost information.
