Radiesse is a calcium-based filler that is used to volumize and correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. It helps to soften smile lines and marionette lines, as well as add volume to the cheeks. The calcium-based microspheres suspended in gel work instantly resulting in immediate correction. Radiesse stimulates your own natural collagen to grow. Natural growth continues for several months after injection. Results can last for up to a year, or more in some patients.
Radiesse is a quick procedure normally completed within 30 to 45 minutes depending on the size of the area being treated. The face will be thoroughly cleansed and then marked with ink for precise injections. A numbing cream is usually applied before the injection occurs. The gel is delivered using a fine needle into the deeper dermal layer or subcutaneous tissue until the right volume is achieved.

"I went today for my first xeomin treatment with with Vanessa, RN. She did a thorough assessment of my face and skin and listened to my concerns. She was extremely professional and explained how the treatment works and what would be expected. Her injection technique was so precise and gentle. I walked out feeling better than walking in. Had an excellent experience and the price was right too. Will be coming back for my future appointments."- J.B. / Google / Jul 17, 2020

What to Expect
After treatment, there may be redness, swelling and possibly bruising around the injection sites, but these go away after several hours/days. Patients will be able to resume their normal routine — although strenuous exercise should be limited for the first 24 hours. Patients will see their results immediately, and the results will continue to improve due to the collagen stimulating properties of Radiesse.
