As we age, wrinkles and loose skin become apparent. These contours make one lose their youthful definition. To reverse the effects of aging and to improve your facial appearance, you may consider radiesse. 

Radiance is considered an elective cosmetic procedure ideal for aging adults who have developed folds and wrinkles around the mouth and nose. 

Like many adults considering the procedure, you may want to know radiesse before and after the results. 

What Is Radiesse Made Of?

Radiesse is an injectable cosmetic skin treatment made of synthetic calcium hydroxylapatite suspended in a gel carrier of sterile water for injection, glycerin, and sodium carboxymethylcellulose. 

The gel helps older women regain their youthful definition by removing wrinkles and tightening the skin. 

Radiesse features a unique mode of action and helps the skin regain its youthful tightness and elasticity through wrinkle filling, volume lifting, and skin rejuvenation. 

Who Can Have Radiesse Injection?

Radiesse injection is ideal for adults between 35 and 60 who have developed wrinkles around the mouth and the nose. 

If your smile has been your favorite feature for the whole of your life, it might be challenging to be content with the fine lines and the wrinkles around your mouth and nose. 

This is because wrinkles and those fine lines have a way of capturing attention negatively. You are a good candidate so long as you are medically fit and your age-related issue can be resolved through the radiesse treatment. 

You could need radiesse treatment if you want to: 

  • Reduce sagging skin and wrinkles 
  • Soften smile lines
  • Contour cheeks
  • Lift and tighten facial skin
  • Mandibular angle
  • Re-define dropping jawlines and jowls
  • Correct volume loss in the back
  • Reshape and smooth minor nasal imperfections 
  • Improve skin quality 

People who experience allergic reactions or have an active skin infection should avoid the radiesse injection. If you want radiesse treatment, book a consultation with your primary care physician to ascertain you are an ideal candidate for the procedure. 

Radiesse Injection Filler Treatment Duration

If the radiesse injection is performed only by a trained and qualified provider, radiesse filler treatment should not take more than 15 minutes. You can return to routine immediately. 

You will experience the benefits of radiesse lips treatment immediately after injection. You can see an increase in volume in the treated areas soon after completing the injections. 

But, some patients don’t enjoy the final results until the fourth or sixth week after the procedure. 

Radiesse Side Effects

People who have undergone radiesse treatment have reported various side effects. Some of the common side effects include: 

  • Swelling 
  • Itching 
  • Pain
  • Bruising 
  • Redness 
  • Challenging with normal skin movement 
  • Loss of skin sensation 
  • Lumps and nodules 

Besides, receiving the injections puts you at risk of accidentally receiving radiesse in a blood vessel rather than the connective vessel. Possible complications of receiving the injection on connective tissue include 

  • Scabbing
  • itching 
  • pain
  • Scarring 
  • Stroke
  • redness
  • Abnormal vision 
  • Paleness or white tinge to the affected skin 
  • Severe pain 
  • Blindness

To avoid these severe radiesse side effects, ensure only a trained professional is involved in administering the procedure.

If you have a history of allergic reactions, you should notify the doctor for advice on whether you can undergo the treatment. 

Radiesse Treatment Recovery Time

Following radiesse treatment, you may experience redness, swelling, and bruising. Besides, you may experience tenderness at the injection site for a few days following the treatment. 

Depending upon the areas treated and the quality of radiesse filler used, you may experience firmness for 1 to 2 weeks after the treatment. After a while, you may experience softness around the injection site. 

However, people who undergo radiesse rarely experience any downtime. Taking time off work is unnecessary, and you can resume the usual daily activities following the treatment. In case of unfamiliar radiesse side effects, talk to your doctor. 

Radiesse Dermal Filler Success Rate

Radiesse filler is a long-lasting treatment that contours, lifts, and volumizes the skin around the nose and the mouth. 

According to radiesse reviews, most patients get to enjoy the final results after four to six weeks. The results can last more than 15 months, and the patient should return for the touch-up treatment. 

Radiesse Alternative Treatments

The two popular alternative treatments are: 

  • Sculptra: An injectable dermal filler approved by the FDA in 2004. 
  • Voluma: A facial filler made up of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance that helps bind water to the cells. 
  • Juvederm: A cosmetic treatment used to restore facial contours and improve aging signs.   

How Is The Radiesse Filler Performed?

Radiesse works by stimulating the naturally occurring collagen beneath the skin. The effects occur immediately and can last for up to two years. The high level of effectiveness makes radiesse a highly sought-after choice for dermal filling. 

What Does Radiesse Injection Involve?

Step1: The doctor examines the treatment's suitability for the patient.

Step2:  If the patient is suitable for the treatment, the doctor will apply antiseptic to the sites where the injection will go. 

Step3: The doctor injects radiesse using local anesthesia. 

The procedure can take as long as 15 minutes, depending on the number of injections you need. 

What Should I Expect After Radiesse Procedure?

After radiesse, you should take caution and avoid sunbathing, saunas, waxing, hot tubs, and hot showers. 

You should wash the treated areas and use the recommended makeup to cover the bruising or skin swelling.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Is radiesse permanent?

No. Radiesse is not a permanent treatment. However, the treatment results are relatively long-lasting. 

How long does radiesse last?

The injection lasts for about 15 months. However, doctors recommend that you should come in after seven months for a touch-up treatment. 

Is Radiesse better than Juvederm?

Generally, radiesse lasts longer compared to how long Juvederm lasts. This is because radiesse can increase collagen production within the skin.

    Anastasia has been excellent from day 1. I had hundreds of questions which she answered patiently and gave me time to think over my options. I never felt pushed into making a decision, which is huge to me with it being such an important choice.

    While doing a price search for plastic surgery in my own country, I came across flymedi and had my surgery at esteworld for a much more reasonable price and I am very happy. The team and flymedi were very professional.

    Ana was extremely helpful, friendly and made planning my trip so much easier. I don't know what I would have done without her! Going overseas to a country you've never been to before to get plastic surgery can be scary, having Ana made it a lot less scary knowing you have somebody there that's on your team to help you.

    From start to finish my experience with Flymedi was exceptional. The coordinator, Abud worked hard at finding the right surgeon for me. He was constantly in contact while I was away to ensure everything went smoothly. I honestly could not be happier with the company. Dr Ozge has done an exceptional job too. Thank you Abud for making me feel confident again!

    I highly recommended flymedi.com. Mustafa was good assistance all the way through. From airport, hotel, and hospital. The surgeon who conduct the operation did a great job. I was hesitant at first and was scared what would be the result but waking up after the surgery I was surprised by his professionalism. As well as Mustafa was being present every time I needed him out anytime I could contacted him. He never fails. Thanks to Y'ALL guys.
