Radiesse®: Your Questions Answered

Q: On what trouble areas does Radiesse® work best?

 A: Radiesse® works best and is used most often for nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and adding cheek volume. It also works well on the jaw line and on the backs of hands.  

Q: I’m thinking about scheduling an appointment with a doctor who’s offering a huge discount on Radiesse® injections. Is this too good to be true?

A: Before committing to Radiesse® injections just to get a deal, you should do your homework in regard to the doctor. Radiesse® cannot be removed once injected, so you want to be sure you’re entrusting your body to someone who is highly experienced and reputable when it comes to    performing cosmetic injections

Q: How long will my results last after Radiesse® injections?Radiesse Treatments Pittsburgh

A: Radiesse® results last anywhere from 12-18 months.

Q: What are the side effects of Radiesse®, and how long is the recovery time after injection?

A: In general, the side effects of Radiesse® injections are minimal. Because Radiesse® is injected deeper into the tissue than some superficial fillers, you may see a minor amount of bruising, redness, and swelling around the injected area; however, these side effects will disappear within a few days or even hours. It is typically advisable to avoid exercise or strenuous activity for a day or two, but otherwise, there are no limitations, and you can resume your normal routine immediately.

Q: Is Radiesse® a safe product?

A: Yes. Radiesse® is an FDA-approved filler material that is comprised of calcium hydroxyapatite spheres suspended in a water-based gel. The composition is very similar to that found in bone. It is not known to cause cancer or any other serious diseases. However, there are potential adverse effects which will be discussed before your treatment.
