How Does Radiesse® Work?
Once Your Levy Dermatology Provider determines your problem areas, he’ll create a custom Radiesse® treatment to address your concerns. The injectable is then meticulously placed at precise locations to maximize your long-term results while minimizing potential side effects. Treatment times vary, but you can expect to be in and out of the office within the hour.
Most patients tolerate the one-time treatment very well. However, Radiesse® can also be enhanced with lidocaine to increase your comfort level.
Radiesse® isn’t just another dermal filler. The injectable instantly plumps skin to fill in fine lines and wrinkles. What’s unique about Radiesse® is the patented micro-sphere technology within the formula. Over time, these micro-spheres trigger new collagen buildup. Even after Radiesse® is naturally absorbed into the body, you’ll be left with increased levels of collagen and the support it brings.
Radiesse® is most often used to treat fine lines and wrinkles on the lower portion of the face. The treatment is safe and effective for:
- Smile Lines
- Marionette Lines
- Pre-Jowl Folds
- Corners of the Mouth
- Chin Wrinkles
The soft tissue filler is also the ideal solution for patients who are bothered by aging hands with prominent veins due to volume loss.

Am I A Good Candidate?
The best candidates for Radiesse® are those looking for wrinkle reduction around the mouth or wish to boost volume to the mid-face and/or backs of the hands. If this sounds like you, Levy Dermatology can help.
What Is Radiesse® Treatment Like?
Radiesse® injections pinch only as much as any other type of injection, and your Levy Dermatology provider will do everything they can to make your treatment as comfortable as possible. Your appointment is quick, finishing in as little as 15 minutes.
What Is Downtime And Recovery Like?
Adverse effects from Radiesse® are limited. You may experience redness, tenderness, or bruising at the injection site. The majority of side effects should subside within 72-hours. However, there is no downtime, and you can get back to your daily routine right after your treatment.
When Can I Expect Results?
You’ll notice immediate results following your Radiesse® appointment. The procedure quickly adds volume to smooth unwanted wrinkles. It can take up to 2-weeks or more to see the final outcome of your treatment making results gradual and subtle. Radiesse® continues to stimulate your body’s own collagen production as long as 1-year in many patients so the benefits can last well beyond the duration of the filler itself.
