Radiesse can be used to smooth wrinkles and lines, fortify the underlying skin structure, and stop the clock on facial aging. Made with tiny calcium microspheres suspended in a water-based gel, Radiesse results are long-lasting, anywhere from 2-3 years.

What is Radiesse?

Like other fillers, Radiesse is used to fight wrinkles, restore volume to areas affected by age, and give a general enhancement to overall skin quality. Made with calcium hydroxylapatite, Radiesse is biodegradable and is naturally absorbed and broken down by the body over time. One of its most popular usages is on the back of hands, where volume loss due to aging can be quite noticeable. As the body ages, collagen is depleted. This protein is the source of youthfulness that gives skin its ‘glow.’

By replenishing collagen, Radiesse helps the skin regain the suppleness and flexibility that it once had in its younger years. Dr. Esmailian can help you in determining which type of filler will work best for your situation. As a double board-certified plastic surgeon with offices in Orange County, Dr. Esmailian has years of experience in using Radiesse for face and hand rejuvenation.

Who is an Ideal Candidate for Radiesse?

Radiesse is recommended for anybody that has aesthetic concerns related to skin aging. Some may be experiencing a loss of volume or hollowed-out areas in the face. For others, it might simply be an issue of sagging skin or deep nasolabial folds. Of course, wrinkles and fine lines are the most common reason that people seek out this procedure. Dr. Esmailian may recommend the usage of Radiesse and BOTOX together in order to create a more natural-looking, youthful appearance.

What is the Recovery like?

While people seldom complain of discomfort following this procedure, it is possible to have a bit of redness and a swollen sensation around the treated areas. However, these symptoms are completely normal and typically resolve on their own within 24 hours. If needed, painkillers such as ibuprofen as well as ice can be used to deal with pain and swelling. In addition, it is recommended that patients wear sunscreen on all treated areas, as sun sensitivity will be increased temporarily. The results from Radiesse tend to last for up to a year or longer.
