RADIESSE® volumizing filler is a synthetic injectable filler that has been U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved for reducing moderate-to-severe wrinkles, folds and creases around the nose and mouth by augmenting the skin’s natural collagen supply. It is a safe, effective and long-lasting alternative to injectable collagen and other dermal fillers for smoothing wrinkles and adding facial volume and contour.
RADIESSE volumizing filler can be used on various areas of the face and body. In addition to correcting scars that leave depressions, it is effective in improving the look of the following:
- Nasolabial folds (run from corners of nose to corners of mouth)
- Marionette lines (run downward from corners of mouth)
- Downturned corners of the mouth
- Jowl pre-sagging
- Chin wrinkles
What To Expect with Radiesse
Following your RADIESSE treatment, you may see mild bruising, redness, and swelling. This is normal and should last for around 5 – 10 days. These side effects may typically be covered with makeup. If the bruising, swelling, or redness lasts longer than 10 days or if you are concerned, please do not hesitate to call About Face & Body Medical Spa. Many patients have some results immediately, with better results developing 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 — about 1 – 2 years. You should talk to Dr. Spencer or your aesthetic provider at your appointment about when to get your next injection to maintain your results.
Will I look fake after RADIESSE?

When performed by a skilled injector, this dermal filler has been known to produce smooth and natural-looking outcomes.
