Frequently Asked Questions

+ How does Radiesse work?

Radiesse creates a structural scaffolding under the skin and stimulates new collagen and elastin production to support the facial or hand tissue.

+ How long does it take for Radiesse to work?

The results from Radiesse are immediate and continual improvement will be seen due to increased collagen production after treatment.

+ How long do the effects of Radiesse last?

Improvement in skin volume typically lasts 18-24 months, though continual improvement in collagen production will occur past this.

+ How is Radiesse different than Filler?

Radiesse is made of Calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA), whereas Filler is made of hyaluronic acid (HA). Radiesse is much longer lasting than Filler.

+ Is Radiesse reversible?

Radiesse, unlike HA Filler, cannot be dissolved. It is important to visit an advanced injector to ensure safe and optimal results.

+ What are the best areas to inject Radiesse?

Radiesse is a thicker filler, so it’s an ideal treatment for saggy, crepey-looking skin of the lower face and hands. Radiesse is an effective treatment for aging hands and deep nasolabial folds and marionette lines.
