What is Radiesse?
There are several injectable dermal fillers available that can aid you in turning back the hands of time. At Clear Lake Dermatology, our board-certified dermatologists are proud to offer Radiesse dermal filler for moderate wrinkles and lines throughout the face and to reverse volume loss in the hands. Men and women who might not have a lot of time for frequent visits appreciate the long-lasting results (1 – 2 years) of Radiesse. Made with calcium hydroxyapatite microspheres in a flexible gel, Radiesse fills and smoothes the look of your skin. Radiesse is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to effectively and safely volumize your face. We can combine it with other injectable treatments (wrinkle relaxers and fillers) for a custom procedure that restores your appearance. Look younger and improve your complexion with Radiesse injectable wrinkle fillers at Clear Lake Dermatology in League City or Webster, TX.
Ideal candidates for Radiesse treatments are in good health and have mild to moderate facial lines and wrinkles. These injections can treat marionette lines, smile lines, chin wrinkles, pre-jowl folds, and fine lines near the sides of the mouth. Radiesse is also safe for correcting age-related volume loss in the hands so they appear smoother and more youthful. You shouldn't have this injection if you're allergic to lidocaine or any other ingredients in Radiesse. Be sure to talk one of our dermatologists if you have any allergies (severe or not) and any medical conditions or disorders. If you're breastfeeding, pregnant, might be pregnant, or are considering pregnancy within several years, then you should not receive Radiesse injections.

Our Injection Technique
Once you've completed your consultation, we'll perform Radiesse wrinkle injections in one of our treatment rooms. This procedure usually takes 30 – 60 minutes to complete. To start the procedure, patients can sit in a relaxed position while we clean and mark the injection areas. Many patients only feel mild discomfort throughout the procedure at the first prick, but we can use a local anesthetic if you prefer. We prepare the dosage of Radiesse, determined at your consultation, in an ultra-fine syringe. The marked injection site will help our team carefully administer Radiesse to the face. After the procedure is done, you can use a cold compress on the treated areas to alleviate swelling and bruising.
What to Expect
After your treatment, you may experience some swelling, bruising, or redness, which is common and should only last for around a week. Patients can typically cover these side effects with makeup. If the side effects last longer than ten days or seem excessive, please do not hesitate to call Clear Lake Dermatology. Most patients notice some results immediately, while the final results develop over time. Your face will appear softer, younger, and more radiant. Radiesse tends to last longer than some of the other fillers (around 1 – 2 years). To maintain your results, ask one of our dermatologists about scheduling a follow-up appointment.
