What is RADIESSE® Filler?

RADIESSE® is a dermal filler like no other, as it uses the naturally occurring mineral calcium hydroxylapatite, contained within a carrier gel. Once injected into the lower face and hands, RADIESSE® immediately increases volume and improves structure.

Unlike other, hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers, its unique mineral composition stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, two components that naturally occur but decrease with age. By bringing them back, RADIESSE® upholds the integrity of the skin’s structure, for a long-lasting healthy plump that lasts a year or more.

RADIESSE® is effective for:

  • Smile lines (nasolabial folds)
  • Chin wrinkles
  • Marionette lines
  • Backs of hands

The beauty of RADIESSE® is that it enhances and emphasizes your natural features. Having an understanding injector with a skilled eye and precise hands is crucial for best results – and you’ll find that at Wilmington Dermatology Center!

What is the History of RADIESSE®?

RADIESSE® was FDA Approved in 2006 to treat nasolabial folds and other moderate wrinkles in the lower face. Its active substance, calcium hydroxylapatite, has been safely used for years in various medical applications like dental work, orthopedics, and procedures for the ears and vocal cords. RADIESSE® is rigorously tested and considered incredibly safe and effective for its intended use. Studies have also shown that RADIESSE® lasts longer than other fillers and is effective in smaller doses!

How Does RADIESSE® Work?

All treatments at Wilmington Dermatology Center first begin with a consultation, where we assess which treatments will achieve the best results while maintaining the integrity of your skin.

Prior to Treatment

Before your treatment, our doctors will consult with you to learn about your medical history and answer any questions or concerns you have about the treatment process. Whether you’re seeking RADIESSE® for your face or hands, we’ll work with you to ensure that you understand the results and aftercare steps.

During Treatment

After carefully mapping out where the injection needs to go, we’ll apply a numbing cream and then gently administer the treatment. Most patients do not find this process painful, and you can expect lines and wrinkles to be smoothed as soon as you’re done! RADIESSE® is a minimally invasive treatment, and you can expect to be out the door in less than half an hour, depending on the areas treated.

After Treatment & Results

Following treatment, you’ll want to temporarily avoid strenuous activity and applying makeup to the injected areas, and apply an ice pack to sooth any injection-site swelling. One of the things patients love most about RADIESSE® is they see results instantaneously and can resume most daily activities – so you can get right back to your life when you’re done, looking and feeling fabulous.

Am I a Candidate for RADIESSE®?

If you struggle with nasolabial folds, marionette lines, smile lines, wrinkles around and at the corners of the mouth, lack of volume at the jawline and chin, or thin and aging skin on the hands, RADIESSE® can solve your problems! And RADIESSE® isn’t just for smoothing the skin: it also volumizes for beautiful and natural-looking results.

Our doctors will establish your candidacy for RADIESSE® in a consultation. If you are pregnant, nursing, on certain medications, or allergic to any of the ingredients in RADIESSE®, we may discuss comparable options.
