Upon injection, Radiesse® immediately provides the lift needed to diminish signs of aging because of the calcium-based microspheres and gel that comprise the product. But what’s unique about Radiesse is that it acts as a scaffold under the skin, providing structure and stimulating your own natural collagen to grow. This natural collagen growth continues for several months, which extends the initial effect of Radiesse.
At our Overland Park practice, Radiesse can be injected in approximately half an hour. Injections are gently made into wrinkles and lines on the patient’s face. After the procedure, patients may want to recover at home, although many patients continue regularly with their day.
Though there is no significant downtime after Radiesse is administered, patients may experience slight redness, swelling, tenderness, bruising, and itching. The results are visible immediately. The wrinkles will be substantially diminished, and the face will look smoother and more youthful overall.
