Aging is an inevitable factor of life. Our skin is adversely affected over time from any combination of factors including stress, sun exposure, smoking, diet, and personal factors. For those who feel younger than their image may portray, it may lead to a conflicting sense of self. Fortunately, modern cosmetic technology has given us the ability to make aging a thing of the past
Radiesse® is a cosmetic treatment that provides rapid visible results after the first treatment session. It is injected below the surface of the skin, and increases volume in areas that have fat loss. The primary ingredient is calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHa), which is a naturally occurring substance in our bones. CaHa has been used as a synthetic material in medical products for years. Your doctor will decide the number of treatments necessary, but significant restoration generally occurs with the first treatment.
Is Radiesse® Right for You?
At ImageLift®, we understand that every patient is unique. The ideal candidates for Radiesse® are adults seeking a non-surgical way to reduce moderate to deep facial wrinkles. Specific wrinkles include nasolabial folds, facial contouring, and facial augmentation. Radiesse® may be the solution for you if you are looking for a treatment that requires little to no downtime, as you will be able to return home minutes after the treatment is administered. It is also useful for the correction of facial fat loss in people with immunodeficiency virus. Do you think Radiesse® is the solution for you?

What Should You Expect with Radiesse®?
If you’re considering Radiesse®, it is essential that you have proper expectations prior to treatment. Some important things to keep in mind are:
- Radiesse® is a volumizing filler that provides immediate volume and correction once injected. It continues to work by stimulating your body to produce its own natural collagen.
- Over time, the gel is absorbed and your body metabolizes the CaHa, leaving only your own natural collagen behind.
- As with any injectable filler, Radiesse® is not without the risk of side effects, which may include: bruising, swelling, numbness, tingling, pain, itching, redness around the treated area, mild headaches, and nausea. If you follow the aftercare instructions that will be provided to you by your physician at ImageLift, the likelihood and severity of side effects should be reduced.
How Are the Results With Radiesse®?
The results associated with Radiesse® are noticeable immediately. You should notice reduced wrinkles, laugh lines, and other signs of age, as well as enhanced cheekbones and a more contoured face. For the first three months after your treatment, Radiesse® will act as a cosmetic filler plumping your skin. At the same time, it will also work to stimulate your body to produce natural collagen, retaining results for a year or more.
Remember, many providers offer Radiesse®, and few are EXPERT at achieving artistic results. Don’t settle for less when it comes to your face. Our physicians are double board certified facial plastic surgeons.
