When considering Radiesse® treatment, many patients wonder how soon they should expect to see results. At Full Spectrum Dermatology, Dr. William P. Baugh provides patients with a clear understanding of what to expect from Radiesse® results.

Radiesse® Rejuvenates the Appearance
As the skin ages, it loses naturally-occurring substances, including collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid, that help maintain elasticity and moisture. Elasticity and moisture are essential to preventing wrinkles and maintaining the skin's suppleness, which is why the skin becomes wrinkled and thin over time.
Radiesse® is a unique dermal filler in that can help restore the skin's collagen as well as restore volume, minimizing the appearance of wrinkles and improving the texture and overall appearance of the skin. So how quickly can these results be seen after Radiesse® treatment? Find out as we take a closer look at Radiesse® results.
What Results Can I Expect?
Radiesse® injections work remarkably well at restoring volume within the skin to overcome many of the signs of aging. Those who seek Radiesse® treatment can expect to see a significant reduction in the appearance of moderate to severe facial wrinkles in such areas as the nasolabial folds and smile lines.
Radiesse® may also be used to add volume to areas of the face that have become hollowed with age, such as the cheeks, or may be used to plump the lips. The hands can also benefit from Radiesse® dermal filler. Radiesse® can help smooth the hands to restore a more youthful appearance.
Radiesse® may even be combined with other treatments to enhance results. Some patient choose to combine Radiesse® with other non-surgical treatments, like laser resurfacing, dermal peels, and other fillers. Others find that having Radiesse® treatment after cosmetic surgery improves the skin's texture in ways that surgery alone could not.
How Soon Will Results Be Noticeable?
Radiesse® treatment can be completed in as little as 15 minutes and results are instantly noticeable. Because results can be seen immediately, it is possible to add more filler if the desired results are not achieved with the initial injection.
Although results can be seen immediately, the full results may not be seen for a day or two as mild swelling and bruising may occur at the injection site. Once the swelling diminishes, usually within 36 hours of treatment, full results will be more apparent.
How Long Do Results Last?
Radiesse® results are long lasting and treatment can be repeated to maintain a youthful appearance. Patients who undergo Radiesse® treatment often enjoy the rejuvenating results of treatment for at least a year. Some may find results last longer, even up to two years.
Radiesse® offers such long-lasting results because it is made of a special gel that slowly absorbs into the tissue and includes a naturally occurring substance called calcium hydroxylapatite, which stimulates collagen production.
Even after the Radiesse® filler has absorbed, patients often see improved skin texture from increased collagen production. As results diminish, Radiesse® dermal filler can be re-administered to keep the skin looking and feeling more youthful.
