Radiesse Filler Injection during Facial Treatment at Glow Dermspa in Lakewood Ranch Florida
Radiesse Treatments


Radiesse treatments are unique in that it is made of calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA), which is similar to the calcium found in your teeth and bones. This compound is suspended in an injectable gel carrier in Radiesse. Not only does Radiesse plump and add volume to areas of the body, but it also can be specially prepared to stimulate your body to produce collagen and elastin without extra volume!

Collagen is the building block of the skin’s structure, providing volume, stability, and a smooth surface. Collagen production slows as we age, and we typically lose about 1-2% of collagen per year as early as our 30’s! This results in weakening and thinning of the skin and volume loss in various areas. Unlike other fillers, which vanish completely when absorbed by the body in 1-2 years, this treatment leaves behind microspheres of hydroxylapatite. These act as a newly formed scaffold, supporting the skin structures that have weakened over time. This increased strength causes your body to produce more collagen, which then builds on top of the hydroxylapatite and persists even after the filler has resolved.

Radiesse FAQ

Radiesse is injected below the surface of the skin in the area of volume loss. Radiesse results in aesthetic improvement and provides an increase in skin thickness in the treated area. Visible results appear at the first treatment session and continue to improve over the following months.

Radiesse is a versatile dermal filler used to treat moderate to severe facial wrinkles, folds, and hollow areas, such as nasolabial folds and marionette lines. It can also be utilized for non-surgical cheek augmentation, jawline contouring and non-surgical butt lift, as well as to rejuvenate aging hands by adding volume and minimizing the appearance of veins and tendons. Most commonly, Radiesse is used to neck, chest, knee and elbow skin rejuvenation.

Results are immediate and continue to improve as it stimulates elastin and collagen formation for months following the treatment.
Generally, significant augmentation or restoration may be achieved in a first treatment. A touch-up may be required to achieve optimal results, and periodic future touch-up treatments may be needed to maintain the augmentation or restoration.

Radiesse typically takes around two weeks to fully settle and integrate into the treated areas. During this time, you may notice some mild swelling or bruising, which should resolve on its own. Full treatment results are seen after 3 months.

How Radiesse works

Radiesse works by combining immediate volumizing effects with long-term collagen stimulation. The unique calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres in Radiesse act as a scaffold, providing instant lift and volume to the treated areas.

Over time, these microspheres stimulate the body’s natural collagen production, gradually improving skin quality and structure. As the microspheres are absorbed by the body, the newly formed collagen takes their place, maintaining a youthful, refreshed appearance that can last up to 18 months.

What to Expect

Your Radiesse treatment at Glow Dermspa begins with a thorough consultation to discuss your aesthetic concerns and goals. Our skilled provider will assess your desired treatment area and determine the most suitable treatment plan for your needs.

Before the procedure, a numbing cream will be applied to the treatment area to ensure your comfort during the injections. Using a fine needle or cannula, our provider will carefully inject Radiesse into the targeted areas, sculpting and contouring as needed to achieve the desired result.

After the treatment, you may experience some mild swelling, tenderness, or bruising. This is temporary and will resolve within 1-2 weeks.

Treatment Types

Radiesse can be used for various aesthetic concerns including facial, neck, chest and hand rejuvenation as well as body contouring.

Radiesse is effective in treating nasolabial folds, the deep lines that run from the sides of the nose to the corners of the mouth. By injecting Radiesse into these areas, the skin is instantly volumized, smoothing out the folds and providing a more youthful appearance.

Marionette lines are the lines that extend from the corners of the mouth down to the chin. Radiesse can be used to fill and soften these lines, creating a more harmonious and rejuvenated facial appearance.
Radiesse can be used for non-surgical cheek augmentation, providing instant lift and volume to the cheeks. This can create a more contoured, youthful look and improve facial balance.

Radiesse can be injected along the jawline to enhance definition and create a more sculpted appearance. Jawline contouring can help address sagging skin and loss of volume in the lower face, providing a subtle lift and improved facial structure.

Radiesse can be used to improve the shape and projection of the chin, creating a more balanced facial profile. By injecting Radiesse into the chin area, our skilled injectors can provide a natural-looking enhancement without the need for surgery.

Radiesse can be used to revitalize aging hands by adding volume and reducing the appearance of veins and tendons. By injecting Radiesse into the back of the hands, a more youthful and smooth appearance is achieved.

As we age, the temples can lose volume and become hollow. Radiesse can be used to restore volume in the temple area, providing a more youthful and balanced facial appearance.
Radiesse can be used to address sagging or wrinkled earlobes caused by aging or heavy earrings. By injecting Radiesse into the earlobe, volume is restored, creating a more youthful and refreshed appearance and more support for wearing earrings.
The pre-jowl sulcus is the area on either side of the chin that can develop hollowing due to aging. Radiesse can be used to fill this area, providing a smoother and more youthful lower face contour.
