Treatment with Radiesse®

Why treatment with Radiesse®?

At Beauty Within, we offer treatment with a biostimulatory filler called Radiesse®, which has been approved by Health Canada since 2005.

Radiesse® stimulates collagen and elastin production for both immediate, natural-looking results AND long-term improvement.

Calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) is what makes Radiesse® a unique injectable treatment. This particular filler uses a two-pronged approach:

  • First, it uses calcium microspheres suspended in a gel carrier to add structure under the skin where collagen (the skin’s natural structural support) has dwindled. These calcium-based microspheres are similar to the minerals found naturally in your bones and teeth. The microspheres then slowly dissolve over time through the normal metabolic process.
  • Second, it encourages the body to build new collagen around the injection areas to continue supporting the skin for up to one year.

Radiesse® (+) should only be used by health care practitioners who have appropriate training, experience, and who are knowledgeable about the anatomy at and around the site of injection.

What can be treated with Radiesse®?

Radiesse® delivers the “triple effect”.

  • Collagen + Elastin: Radiesse® stimulates the body’s own natural production of collagen and elastin.
  • Contour + Lift: The calcium-based microspheres create an immediate lift, while also contouring and defining the mid and lower face and jawline.
  • Immediate + Long Term: Skin rejuvenation begins right away and remains noticeable because of increased skin elasticity and elasticity over time.

Radiesse® can be used to treat:

  • Cheeks and mid face volume loss
  • Cheekbone augmentation
  • Laugh lines (nasolabial folds)
  • Jawline and chin
  • Hand rejuvenation
  • Neck rejuvenation

*Radiesse® is NOT to be used in the lips or around the eyes.


Benefits of Radiesse®

  • Non-surgical with immediate, natural results
  • Immediate improvement PLUS the long-term collagen and elastin you need
  • Lower cost vs. surgical intervention
  • Lasts between approximately 12-18 months
  • Minimal downtime (patients must adhere to Post Care Instructions for best results)
  • A great treatment for neck and hand rejuvenation

What results can you expect with Radiesse®?

  • Immediate correction through support, shape and definition to restore facial contours.
  • Skin is strengthened from within as Radiesse® stimulates skin cell activity and the formation of collagen and elastin. The restored skin structure results in a smoother, more tightened effect.
  • How long the effect of a Radiesse® treatment lasts is dependent on the individual. There are many factors to consider, such as the structure of the skin, your lifestyle and age.

Who Should Not Receive Treatment with Radiesse®?

Treatment with Radiesse® is not recommended for use in pregnant or lactating women, anyone with a history of an allergic reaction to the drug or any of its active ingredients, as well as any infected or inflamed skin, bleeding disorders, and individuals with a tendency to produce excessive scarring such as keloids and/or hypertrophic scars. Please inform us if you have or are experiencing any of the mentioned conditions.

Side Effects of Radiesse® Treatment

Recognized side effects include bruising, redness, swelling, firmness, lumpiness, pain, itching, discoloration and tenderness/discomfort. These possible side effects are usually mild and related to the procedure. Most are short-term and resolve within a couple of weeks. There is also the potential for skin irregularities, asymmetry, nodules and damage to underlying structures.

Rare but serious adverse events have been reported. All cases are managed under physician care and proper attention is given to resolution and/or treatment. Medical attention may be required to resolve complications associated with this treatment.
