Collagen gives skin its strength and elasticity. Unfortunately, our bodies produce less of this beneficial protein over time, resulting in sagging, wrinkles, and volume loss. If you’d like to reverse these changes for a more youthful and defined appearance, consider the injectable cosmetic treatment Radiesse®.

What is Radiesse?
Radiesse is a special type of dermal filler known as a collagen stimulator. Once injected, it immediately adds volume to the treatment area and begins to encourage collagen production. When your body eventually absorbs and eliminates the product, you’re left with healthy new collagen for long-lasting cosmetic improvement.
Radiesse is the first dermal filler to receive FDA approval for both the face and hands. By lifting and defining the treatment area, this filler effectively smoothes unwanted folds and wrinkles. It’s also a great choice for reducing the appearance of prominent veins and tendons on the back of the hands.
The dermal filler Radiesse is known to offer benefits such as:
- Fast treatment times
- Immediately visible results that continue to improve
- High patient satisfaction in clinical studies
Ideal Radiesse Candidates
Most people are excellent candidates for Radiesse. It’s likely a great option if you’re looking for a quick, non-surgical treatment that can improve concerns such as wrinkles and volume loss. During your consultation, expect to discuss your relevant medical history and other individualized factors to learn if Radiesse is right for you.
The safety of Radiesse has not been evaluated in women who are pregnant or breastfeeding or patients under the age of 18. You should not use Radiesse if you have bleeding disorders or a history of allergic reactions.
Your Radiesse Appointment
You won’t need to spend a lot of time at JUVA to receive your Radiesse injections. Most people schedule dermal filler appointments during their lunch break.
Your provider will start by determining the best locations for your injections. Then, they may apply a topical numbing cream or add an anesthetic directly to the filler for your comfort. Finally, you’ll receive the Radiesse injections. The number of injections you need will influence the timing of your appointment.
What to Expect After Radiesse
You should be able to return to your normal routine immediately after receiving Radiesse. Aftercare is simple and includes temporarily avoiding strenuous exercise and sun exposure.
You can expect to notice an immediate improvement in the treated area. Full results typically appear within a week. Due to the collagen-stimulating nature of Radiesse, results are incredibly long-lasting in most patients.
Know that results are not permanent. You’ll need to repeat the treatment at some point if you want to keep your refreshed appearance. It’s not unusual for patients to go two years between Radiesse injections. Others return for smaller doses as part of a maintenance plan.
Hyper-Diluted Radiesse for Face and Body
Radiesse can be used for skin tightening by hyper-diluting the product with lidocaine or saline. This approach, known as biostimulation, harnesses the collagen-stimulating properties of Radiesse to improve skin quality, elasticity, and firmness without adding volume. It’s an effective way to rejuvenate the face and body and may even help treat cellulite.
Hyper-dilute Radiesse can be used in many treatment areas, including the:
