What is Radiesse?
Radiesse is a non-toxic, biocompatible and non-allergenic dermal filler designed to treat smile lines,
marionette lines, chin wrinkles, mild jowls and nasolabial folds (the lines that span from the sides of your
nose to the corners of your mouth). It can also be used to create high cheekbones, add volume to hollow
areas on the face and fill in certain scars.
Radiesse is unique in that it boosts volume underneath the skin and promotes collagen production in the
treatment area, helping your skin to look younger for a longer period of time. An extremely popular dermal
filler among our clients, Radiesse’s natural results often endure up to one year.
Following your Radiesse treatments, your youthful results will be apparent immediately. Not only will you
see a visible improvement in the appearance of wrinkles around your mouth and nose, but you will also
experience a mini-facelift effect with higher cheekbones and restored volume. Thanks to our staff’s refined
injection technique, you can also expect your results to appear extremely natural and organic – never
Though individual results will vary, the majority of our clients still see noticeable results 9 to 12
months after their initial procedure, at which point a follow-up treatment is necessary to maintain your
beautiful new look.
What can I expect during Radiesse treatments?
Our highly trained specialists are experts at administering Radiesse to ensure that your results are always
extremely natural-looking – never overdone. During your initial consultation, we will carefully evaluate
your facial anatomy and signs of aging as a whole, before composing a custom treatment plan designed to use
the filler to restore volume, stimulate collagen production and treat fine lines and wrinkles throughout the
During the actual injections, we will use a very small needle to administer the filler directly into your
unique problem areas, such as your nasolabial folds, marionette lines, smile lines, jowls and chin wrinkles.
The entire thirty minute procedure will be virtually pain-free, because Radiesse is formulated with a
built-in anesthetic to ensure your comfort. At the very most, our clients report extremely minimal
discomfort during their injections.

Is there any downtime associated with the treatment?
There is virtually no downtime associated with Radiesse, and most individuals are able to resume their
normal activities immediately. Though a small number of clients report some swelling, discomfort and
bruising in the treatment area immediately after the injections, it is usually very minimal and will subside
within three days.
