WHAT is RADIESSE?

RADIESSE is an injectable wrinkle filler known for reducing lines and hollow areas that make you appear aged. This advanced filler is made from calcium-based microspheres in a water-based gel. Calcium microspheres are identical in composition to the mineral components found in human bones and teeth, which means there is very little risk of having an adverse reaction to treatment. RADIESSE is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and has been used in Europe to reduce the appearance of expression lines and scars. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Rafi Bidros is an expert at treating patients with RADIESSE for cosmetic purposes. Contact our Houston, TX, office to learn more about your options for RADIESSE.

What are the benefits of RADIESSE?

The face is not the only area that shows significant signs of aging over time. Our hands are also susceptible to lines, wrinkles, and overall loss of volume. RADIESSE is the first dermal filler approved by the FDA to correct age-related volume loss in the hands. The smooth microspheres of RADIESSE provide natural-looking results that last up to one year or longer. Dr. Bidros can successfully use RADIESSE to rejuvenate your hands and help you achieve a more youthful appearance you love.

Who is a candidate for RADIESSE?

Patients must undergo a consultation to discuss their goals and expectations for RADIESSE. Dr. Bidros begins the process by examining your face and hands to review the treatment areas. We may also about your current medical history. Cosmetic injections like RADIESSE are provided for generally healthy adults who wish to treat wrinkles, fine lines, or folds in their skin. RADIESSE is not recommended for people with active skin infections. Please inform our staff of any allergies or previous reactions to injectable fillers prior to your treatment in Houston, TX.

How are RADIESSE injections performed?

Dr. Bidros administers cosmetic injections using a local anesthetic so patients feel comfortable and at ease throughout the procedure. We also use a small needle to minimize discomfort. RADIESSE is injected into each target area using precise placement techniques. The product immediately adds volume to smooth away common issues like marionette lines (smile lines), folds around the mouth, pre-jowl folds, and chin wrinkles.

HOW quickly does RADIESSE work?

RADIESSE results are seen on the same day as your procedure and will only continue to get better over time. This is because RADIESSE encourages natural collagen production over the following few months after treatment. Considered a semi-permanent filer, RADIESSE is clinically proven to last a year or more. Patients are always welcome to return to our office for follow-up visits in Houston. We work with each patient to create an injection plan that meets their needs and expectations.

Radiesse FAQs

How long does RADIESSE last?

Studies suggest that the microspheres in Radiesse slowly dissipate over time, which means touch-up treatments may be required. Most patients schedule treatments once a year to maintain their refreshed and rejuvenated results. Dr. Bidros can make recommendations about follow-up appointments during an initial consultation.

What is RADIESSE made from?

Radiesse is made of calcium-based microspheres suspended in a water-based gel. Calcium microspheres are identical in composition to the mineral components found in human bones and teeth. The gel-like consistency of Radiesse makes it easy to inject and provides natural-looking results on the face and hands.

How do I prepare for RADIESSE?

To ensure that Radiesse is safe and effective, it is important to follow our instructions on how to prepare for treatment in Houston. This may include avoiding aspirin and other common blood thinners. Patients should also drink water before and after their injections to keep their skin hydrated.
