Over time, our bodies produce less collagen, which adds volume and elasticity to the skin. This reduced production is most notable in our hands and face, resulting in wrinkles, creases, and sagging skin. Fortunately, there is a safe, effective treatment available called Radiesse that stimulates collagen production and restores the skin’s natural, supple appearance. The Ava MD dermatologists are experts with injectable dermal fillers such as Radiesse and can help patients achieve the vibrant, youthful appearance they desire.

How Does Radiesse Work?
Radiesse, formerly known as Radiance, is an FDA approved injectable filler that is specially designed to stimulate the body’s natural collagen production while calcium-based microspheres provide immediate volume and lift to the skin, erasing wrinkles and filling in lines and creases. It can even be used as to shape the nose as a non-surgical nose job.
Unlike traditional cosmetic treatments, Radiesse uses state-of-the-art technology to work with the body’s natural healing process and collagen production to achieve long-lasting results that are both natural and safe. Over time, the aqueous gel of Radiesse is safely absorbed by the body, while the natural collagen that has been produced is left behind.
The procedure typically takes less than an hour, depending on the patient’s desired results and targeted areas. Some patients experience additional swelling or bruising, redness, or general discomfort immediately following the procedure, but these side effects generally disappear within a matter of hours or a few days.
It is strongly suggested that patients avoid sunlight and do not touch the treated area for at least 24 hours following the treatment.
What Areas Does Radiesse Treat Best?
Radiesse is a fairly versatile dermal filler that may be used in a variety of areas on the face and hands. It is most effective when used for the following:
- Reshaping the nose (non-surgical nose job)
- Nasolabial folds (smile lines) around the nose and mouth
- Marionette lines that run down from the corners of the mouth
- Loose skin along the jaw or pre-jowl folds
- Wrinkles along the chin
- Sagging, thinning cheeks
- Loose skin and wrinkles on the hands
