What is Radiesse?

San Diego Cosmetic Clinic is proud to offer our patients a full range of effective injectable fillers to restore a youthful look to the skin. Of these, RADIESSE is an injectable wrinkle filler provided by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Steve Laverson and is wonderful for mild and moderate wrinkles and lines on the face, and for correcting volume loss in the hands. Men and women who don't have time for frequent visits enjoy the lasting results (over a year in many cases) RADIESSE produces. With microspheres of calcium hydroxyapatite in a flexible gel, the formula fills and smoothes the appearance of your face without the need for invasive surgery. Approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) to safely add volume to the face, RADIESSE can be used with other injectable treatments (wrinkle fillers and relaxers) as a part of a customized treatment to rejuvenate your appearance. Look several years younger and improve your self-image with RADIESSE injectable wrinkle fillers at San Diego Cosmetic Clinic in San Diego, CA.

What Are the Benefits of Radiesse?

Additionally, it can also be used to correct volume loss in the face, as well as hands. This helps give many of our patients a more youthful appearance that keeps them feeling great about the way they look. Visit us today if you'd like to fill out the shape of your face and/or hands.

Am I a Candidate for Radiesse?

Men and women who are in good overall health and have mild to moderate facial lines and wrinkles could be great candidates to receive RADIESSE treatments. This formula can treat marionette lines, smile lines, chin wrinkles, pre-jowl folds, and fine lines that form in the corners of the lips. This formula is also safe to address volume in the hands that is often lost with age to make them softer and appear more youthful. You shouldn't receive this treatment if you have an allergy to lidocaine or other ingredients contained in RADIESSE. Be sure to talk to Dr. Laverson if you have any allergies (whether mild or severe), as well as any medical conditions or disorders. If you are pregnant, breastfeeding, might become pregnant, or are trying to conceive in the next several years, you shouldn't receive this treatment.

How Does Radiesse Work?

RADIESSE injections are performed in a treatment room at San Diego Cosmetic Clinic in around 30 – 60 minutes, typically once you have completed your consultation. First, you will be seated in a relaxed position as the injection sites are cleaned and marked. Many patients feel only mild discomfort throughout the procedure at the first prick, but a numbing agent will be applied to the treatment sites as needed. The amount of product, which will be selected during your consultation, will be placed in a fine needle. The pre-marked injection sites will allow your injector to carefully administer the product into the desired locations. After your treatment is complete, a compress can be held to the treated areas to alleviate bruising and swelling.

What Results Can I Expect from Radiesse?

Following your treatment, you may have some bruising, redness, and swelling. This is normal and should last for around a week. These side effects may typically be concealed with cosmetics. If the bruising, swelling, or redness lasts longer than ten days or if you are concerned, please contact San Diego Cosmetic Clinic. Many patients have visible results immediately with final results appearing in a month or so. Your face will look softer, younger, and have a natural glow. RADIESSE typically lasts longer compared to other dermal fillers — around 1 – 2 years. You can talk to Dr. Steve Laverson at your appointment about how soon to get your next injection to touch up your results.
