Radiesse injections are performed in a treatment room at Kouris M.D. Cosmetic Plastic Surgery in around 30 – 60 minutes once you have completed your consultation. First, you will be seated in a relaxed position as the injection sites are cleaned and marked. Many patients feel only mild discomfort throughout the procedure at the first prick, but if needed, a numbing agent will be applied to the treatment sites. The Radiesse dose, selected during your consultation, will be placed in a fine needle. The pre-marked site of injection will guide the injector to carefully administer Radiesse into the skin. After the treatment is complete, a cold compress can be held to the treated areas to alleviate bruising and swelling.
What to Expect
Following your treatment, you may have some bruising, redness, and swelling. This is normal and should last for around a week. These side effects may typically be concealed with cosmetics. If the bruising, swelling, or redness lasts longer than ten days or if you are concerned, please contact Kouris M.D. Cosmetic Plastic Surgery. Many patients have visible results immediately with final results appearing in a month or so. Your face will look softer, younger, and have a natural glow. Radiesse typically lasts longer compared to other dermal fillers — around 1 – 2 years. You can speak with Dr. George Kouris at your appointment about how soon to get your next injection to touch-up your results.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does Radiesse cost?
The cost of your Radiesse injectable treatment will depend on the number of syringes/vials needed to attain your goal outcome. During your consultation at Kouris M.D. Cosmetic Plastic Surgery, we will discuss your aesthetic goals and help to determine the amount of product needed to achieve them. After a treatment plan has been tailored, we will discuss your out-of-pocket costs.
How does Radiesse compare to other fillers?
Radiesse is the only dermal filler composed of calcium-based microspheres. Comparable to hyaluronic acid injectable fillers, Radiesse stimulates collagen production over time but remains a temporary solution. During your consultation, we will discuss your dermal filler options, evaluate your skin, and help you decide which filler may be the best choice.
What are the possible side effects of Radiesse?
Immediately after your injection, you may experience mild redness, bruising, numbness, and/or itching at the injection site. These temporary (and common) side effects usually disappear within a day or two. Severe and/or abnormal side effects are rare with Radiesse.
What other procedures can I combine with Radiesse?
Many patients choose to combine Radiesse injections with other nonsurgical complementary procedures, such as a facial or microdermabrasion. Dr. Kouris may even recommend combining fillers and relaxants, such as BOTOX, to create more dynamic results. Speak with your injector during your consultation to learn more about other procedures that can be combined with Radiesse.
Are Radiesse injections painful?
A local anesthetic can be provided if you are worried about pain, but patients do not typically experience severe discomfort during their injections.
