Say Goodbye To Signs Of Aging

Radiesse is a dermal filler that is most commonly used to treat signs of aging in the face, such as wrinkles, fine lines, and loss of volume. It is also used to enhance facial features, such as the cheeks and chin, and to correct facial asymmetry. Radiesse is a versatile filler that can provide natural-looking results that last for up to a year or more. At Zenn Plastic Surgery in Raleigh, North Carolina, Master Injector Tara Cypher, RN, MSN, CANS, has over 20 years of experience in non-surgical facial rejuvenation, and can tell you if Radiesse could help you.

What Makes Radiesse Unique?

Radiesse is a dermal filler made from calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres suspended in a gel. CaHA is a biocompatible substance that is found naturally in the body, making it a safe and effective option for dermal filler injections. When injected into the skin, Radiesse provides immediate volume and lift, while also stimulating the body's natural collagen production for longer-lasting results. Radiesse is a versatile filler that can be used to treat a wide range of skin concerns, including wrinkles, fine lines, and loss of volume.

Is Radiesse Right For Me?

The best way to learn if Radiesse is suitable for you is to have a one-on-one consultation with Advanced Nurse Injector Tara Cypher, RN, MSN, CANS. Radiesse is appropriate for a wide range of patients who wish to improve the appearance of their skin. Good candidates for Radiesse include those who:

  • Have a loss of volume in the face
  • Want to correct facial asymmetry
  • Have fine lines and wrinkles
  • Want facial contouring of the cheek, chin, or jaw

A Radiesse treatment typically takes about 30 minutes to complete and is performed in a healthcare provider's office. Before the treatment, a numbing cream or local anesthesia may be applied to the treatment area to help minimize any discomfort. During the treatment, the healthcare provider will use a fine needle to inject the Radiesse gel into the targeted areas of the face. The gel contains tiny calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres that immediately add volume and lift to the skin. The healthcare provider will then massage the treated area to ensure that the gel is evenly distributed.

What Kind Of Recovery Follows Treatment?

After a Radiesse session, patients may experience some mild swelling, redness, or bruising at the injection site. These side effects are typically mild and resolve within a few days. Patients can resume their normal activities immediately after the treatment, but should avoid strenuous exercise and exposure to heat or sun for at least 24 hours.

What Results Can I Expect?

Patients can expect to see a noticeable reduction in lines and wrinkles, and if Radiesse is used to treat facial hollows, a  fuller and more youthful face. The results of a Radiesse treatment are immediate and can last for up to a year or more, depending on the individual. Over time, the CaHA microspheres stimulate the body's natural collagen production, which can further improve the appearance of the skin.
