Radiesse is a calcium-based filler that is used to volumize and correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. It helps to soften smile lines and marionette lines, as well as add volume to the cheeks. The calcium-based microspheres suspended in gel work instantly resulting in immediate correction. Radiesse stimulates your own natural collagen to grow. Natural growth continues for several months after injection. Results can last for up to a year, or more in some patients.
Radiesse is a quick procedure normally completed within 30 to 45 minutes depending on the size of the area being treated. The face will be thoroughly cleansed and then marked with ink for precise injections. A numbing cream is usually applied before the injection occurs. The gel is delivered using a fine needle into the deeper dermal layer or subcutaneous tissue until the right volume is achieved.

"All aspects of my experience from initial consultation, surgery, recovery care to follow up appointments were exceptional. Dr. Aston is approachable and a perfectionist which was demonstrated in consultation and post op results. I would like to give a special recognition to my post op nurse Denise who was so attentive, knowledgeable and organized that she actually made my initial recovery enjoyable."- Anonymous / RateMDs / Feb 05, 2020
"I am very happy with all aspects of the procedure. I cannot think of anything I did not expect. I did not know about the numbness that I will have for a while, but other than that, I am completely satisfied and happy"- Anonymous / RateMDs / Jan 03, 2020

What to Expect
After treatment, there may be redness, swelling and possibly bruising around the injection sites, but these go away after several hours/days. Patients will be able to resume their normal routine — although strenuous exercise should be limited for the first 24 hours. Patients will see their results immediately, and the results will continue to improve due to the collagen stimulating properties of Radiesse.
