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.

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.
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.
Radiesse can be injected along the jawline to enhance definition and create a more sculpted appearance. This treatment 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 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.
