Radiesse is an excellent treatment to add volume and fullness back into the face and hands, giving you the fuller, refreshed look of your youth. Whereas Botox is an injection that paralyzes the nerves in your face to create a relaxed look, Radiesse adds volume to “plump” up your face, adding shape and also minimizing wrinkles. It takes about 30 minutes in a doctor’s office and the results are immediate and high-impact.

Before Radiesse: Typical Candidates

If you’ve noticed that you’ve lost volume in your cheeks or hands, you’re an ideal candidate for Radiesse. It’s a product typically used to add volume and shape back to the cheeks and hands. It’s a great product to minimize appearance of the tendons and veins of your hand, restoring a youthful look. It can be used elsewhere, but you will find that every doctor has preferences on which products to use in which areas. For your treatment, Radiesse may be the perfect solution or you may find that a blend of fillers is ideal.

After Radiesse: Expectations

As we age, we lose fat and collagen in our face, neck and hands. This loss of volume is completely natural—everyone will experience this, and wrinkles, too, are inevitable. Radiesse has the amazing ability to “plump” your face up—adding youthful volume to give you a full and healthy looking face, and minimizing fine lines. Plus, your body’s collagen-making capabilities are put into action, further aiding in your new, youthful appearance!

Another upside: Radiesse is created with Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHA). Hydroxylapatite is found in your bones. Since this is so close to what you have in your body naturally, allergic or adverse reactions are quite rare.

Radiesse is very similar to other fillers, but many surgeons like to use it near the bone since it’s so like minerals found naturally in your bones. Like other fillers, the lasting power depends on how much is injected and where. Typically, the range could be on the lower end at six months or as long as 18 months! And like other fillers, Radiesse is generally priced by syringe, ranging from about $750 on the low end to close to $1,200 on the high end.

However, unlike some other fillers, your doctor can’t make the effects of Radiesse disappear. It’s not a permanent product, but it does last for some time. If you are not happy with your results, you will have to stick out your Radiesse treatment until your body absorbs the gel and your contour returns to normal.

Should I choose Radiesse?

It’s best to consult with your doctor to discuss what you’re looking to achieve. Radiesse may well be the best treatment for you—especially if you want to add volume to your cheeks and hands! Or, you may find that your doctor suggests a hybrid approach.
