We all want to age gracefully, but sometimes our bodies are not as cooperative as we would like. As time marches on, your face and hands may begin to look withered and worn, creating a more aged appearance. This is because the collagen that we have when we are younger begins to diminish. Radiesse is a revolutionary treatment that specifically targets the lost volume and collagen in your face and hands so you can restore that youthful glow and reverse the signs of aging!
How Does Radiesse Work?
Radiesse works by stimulating collagen growth in the tissues under your skin. It can add back lost volume while helping to create new collagen production, all naturally and with immediate results! It is made of a natural calcium-based microsphere, which stimulates collagen growth. After the production of collagen begins, you can see renewed volume and elasticity, altering the once aged appearance to a now fresher and younger look.

You may want to explore the Radiesse treatment more during a consultation with one of our expert dermatologists at Goldman, Butterwick, Fitzpatrick, Groff and Fabi, Cosmetic Laser Dermatology in San Diego, but we have devised a list of frequently asked questions to help you learn more about Radiesse.
Q: What Are The Most Popular Areas That Radiesse Can Be Used To Treat?

Q: Are Radiesse Injections Painful?
A: The needle used for a Radiesse treatment is extremely thin and fine, making the puncture process as painless as possible. Radiesse is also mixed with lidocaine, a local anesthetic, which can help numb pain receptors, alleviating any discomfort you may feel.
Q: How Long Will Radiesse Results Last After My Treatment?
A: Radiesse results can last up to a full year! With the stimulation of collagen regrowth, Radiesse continues to work after your treatment, allowing the body to naturally produce the plumpness that you desire in your face and hands.
Q: Are There Side Effects To Radiesse?
A: As with all injectables, there may be some redness, swelling, and numbness in the area of the injection site. You may also experience some itchiness and bruising but all of these side effects will go away within a couple of days.
