Radiesse in Naples, FL
Radiesse is a dermal filler used to treat facial wrinkles and add volume to the face. It is a synthetic product composed of calcium-based microspheres suspended in a water-based gel. Radiesse works by stimulating the body’s natural collagen production and providing immediate results for a youthful appearance.
The most common areas to treat with Radiesse include smile lines, marionette lines, pre-jowl folds, corners of the mouth, and chin wrinkles. This dermal filler treatment can last up to 12 months or more, depending on your individual lifestyle and skin type. The main benefit of using Radiesse over other cosmetic procedures is that it doesn’t break down like other fillers when injected into the face.
With this dermal filler treatment, you will see an immediate improvement in your facial wrinkles as well as natural collagen production over time for continued long-lasting results. This filler also helps reduce marionette lines which contribute to the overall youthful appearance of your face. The results you get from Radiesse are both immediate and long-lasting with proper maintenance and care from an experienced esthetician.
Benefits of Radiesse Filler
Radiesse is a revolutionary cosmetic treatment that provides benefits for those who suffer from volume loss in their face, facial wrinkles, and deep wrinkles. The main goal of Radiesse is to restore lost volume to the face while still providing an aesthetically pleasing look that can last up to 12 months or more. Radiesse is composed of calcium hydroxyapatite, which helps stimulate the production of collagen in the body. This helps create natural-looking results while filling in wrinkles and lines quickly and effectively for long-lasting results.
Some of the many benefits of using Radiesse include:
-Restoring facial volume for an overall youthful appearance
-Filling in deep wrinkles around the eyes, mouth, and nose
-Smoothing away marionette lines around the mouth
-Providing immediate results with continued improvement over time
-Minimally invasive procedure that requires only one visit
-Long-lasting effects with proper maintenance and care
Radiesse is a great solution for those looking to reduce signs of aging, such as facial lines and wrinkles, without having to undergo surgery. With its natural-looking results, it can help you achieve your aesthetic goals without any downtime or discomfort.
Injectable Treatment Procedure
When it comes to the injectable treatment procedure for Radiesse, a wide range of injection sites can be utilized. These injection sites will depend on the severity of the wrinkles and areas of volume loss that need to be addressed. Each individual site is numerically marked and treated with a single injection. In some cases, multiple injections may be necessary in order to achieve the desired results.
The procedure begins by using a topical anesthetic to numb the area. Once this has been applied, a fine needle is used to introduce the filler into specific connective tissues within the skin’s deeper layers. The hyaluronic acid fillers are injected into these target areas in order to reduce wrinkles and restore lost facial volume for an overall more youthful appearance. The entire process takes about 30 minutes or less, depending on the severity of wrinkles and the amount of product used during treatment.

Results and Recovery Period
Results from dermal filler injections of Radiesse vary depending on the patient and their individual skin type. Immediately after treatment, patients may experience some swelling, redness, or bruising around the injection sites. This is common and typically dissipates within a few days following the procedure. Patients can usually expect to see improvements in facial wrinkles within a few weeks of treatment, with continued improvement over time as collagen production increases.
Most patients are able to resume normal activities right away after treatment. However, it’s important to avoid strenuous exercise, alcohol consumption, saunas, or hot tubs for 24 – 48 hours post-procedure in order to allow the filler to settle into place properly. It’s also important to note that multiple treatments may be required in order to achieve desired results, so it’s important to discuss your treatment plan with your cosmetic surgeon prior to starting any skin care regimen using dermal fillers such as Radiesse.
It’s also important for patients undergoing dermal filler injections of Radiesse to be aware of potential side effects such as bleeding, infection, and an allergic reaction at the injection site due to contact with blood vessels in the skin. If you experience any of these side effects, it’s important that you seek medical attention right away.
Cost Considerations for Radiesse Treatment
The cost of Radiesse treatment will vary depending on the area being treated and the amount of product needed to achieve desired results. Generally, treatments for facial folds can range from $500-$1000 per session, while treatments to improve overall facial skin may cost up to $2500 for a series of four injections. Patients considering a Radiesse treatment should discuss cost considerations with their physician prior to undergoing treatment.
Radiesse is backed by clinical studies showing that it is safe and effective in improving wrinkles and volume loss associated with aging and sun damage. Beautiful skin can be achieved without surgery or downtime, providing patients with an immediate rejuvenation effect that will last for months. With proper maintenance and care, the effects can be prolonged, giving you beautiful skin for years to come.
The success of your treatment relies on choosing the right filler to do the job, whether it’s Radiesse or another product. Every filler is unique in composition, consistency, and ability, though each is able to treat wrinkles, folds, and facial depressions, as well as perform augmentations. Different fillers also offer varying ranges of depth to manage surface lines or deep folds. The right filler agent for you will be chosen by a Plastic Surgeon at the Aesthetic Surgery Center. During a consultation, your areas of concern will be assessed to help determine which treatment is best out of a range of choices, including Perlane, Restylane, Juvederm, and more. Often, your surgeon will use a customized combination of fillers in order to achieve the optimal results in the different portions of your face.
Your Radiesse results will not be permanent but may last for a longer amount of time when placed in the areas where this product works best. When applied to the areas it is meant to treat, Radiesse can last up to one year. As with any injectable filler, using Radiesse in areas for which it is not designed will result in short-lived, unsatisfactory results. Radiesse is an ideal treatment for laugh lines, or nasolabial folds, peri-oral lines, cheek augmentation, depressed scars, and downturned corners of the mouth or oral commissures. Consult with your doctor about the areas you would like treated to learn whether Radiesse is the right treatment option.
Radiesse is a biocompatible gel that is composed of calcium hydroxyapatite, the same minerals that are found in human bones. Given its natural source, Radiesse is safe to use and carries almost no risk of allergic reaction in its patients.
All injectable treatments are likely to involve some slight pain at the site of the injection. This initial pain is often described as feeling like a bug bite. Swelling and bruising are common.
Radiesse itself does not carry any specific side effects, but injectable fillers, in general, have been known to cause some slight bruising, swelling, and pain at the treatment site. These symptoms should last only a day or two before subsiding on their own. With any filler, there is a remote chance of a delayed reaction to the filler, such as granuloma formation. Your surgeon will likely use ice, a topical anesthetic cream, or a lidocaine nerve block to perform your treatment and reduce your chances of pain, bruising, and swelling.
Radiesse is one injectable filler that can be used to treat a variety of specific concerns, including wrinkles and folds at various depths, cheek augmentation, and jawline augmentation.
Some results of your Radiesse injections will be visible immediately, though swelling of the area may obscure them. After a few days, you will notice the full results of your Radiesse treatments emerging.
Age is not often a determining factor in deciding whether a person is a good candidate for Radiesse treatments or not. Your eligibility depends on the presence of lines, folds, and depressions, which can often be hereditary and present much earlier than normal as a result. Facial fillers like Radiesse can help patients even in their 30s to reverse these effects, no matter what has caused them.
All Radiesse treatments are administered by plastic surgeons at the Aesthetic Surgery Center. Their high level of skill and aesthetic training provides each patient with the three-dimensional volumetric enhancement they desire.
Radiesse treatments can certainly be administered following your consultation. When you call the Aesthetic Surgery Center for an appointment, mention your intentions to receive your first treatments at the same time and your consultation will be scheduled accordingly.
