Radiesse is an FDA-approved dermal filler that minimizes lines and wrinkles, plumps sagging cheeks, and augments your facial features for up to two years.
Our Scottsdale Radiesse is a dermal filler that restores a natural, youthful look with a longer lasting result than standard soft tissue fillers. It consists of calcium-based microspheres that form a scaffold to support and stimulate the growth of collagen.
Over time, the filler breaks down and is safely reabsorbed by the body, without the risks of a permanent implant.
For most of our Scottsdale clients, the beautiful effects of Radiesse last between one to two years.
The dermal filler is easily injected throughout the face to:

In addition to enhancing the face, Radiesse is a very effective treatment for rejuvenating the hands. When injected in this area, it obscures prominent veins and restores soft tissue volume to skin that has been depleted by age and sun exposure. Optimal hand rejuvenation results are obtained when photo rejuvenation (IPL) is added to Radiesse injections to treat age spots that further diminish hand beauty.
Radiesse is unique when compared to alternative cosmetic fillers. For starters, its effects last much longer – between one and two years. Other options on the market must be re-injected after roughly six months to maintain your results. In addition, Radiesse is composed of elements that are naturally found in the body.
Radiesse is an ideal dermal filler for Scottsdale men and women who want to restore youthful volume on their face and hands.
To be considered a candidate, you should:
It’s important to note that Radiesse is not appropriate for patients who are experiencing advanced signs of aging. In these cases, a facelift, brow lift, or another surgical procedure will likely be necessary to achieve your aesthetic goals.
Radiesse injections are done during a quick, in-office visit to our Scottsdale Skin Klinic. The entire appointment should take about 30 minutes, at which point you will be free to return to your normal daily routine immediately.
To begin, one of our experienced nurse injectors will cleanse your skin and apply a local anesthetic to ensure your comfort. From there, we will inject the cosmetic filler just beneath the skin.
You should see a visible improvement in the treatment area right away, with your final results appearing in one week. You will need to avoid dramatic facial expressions for a full 48 hours to ensure optimal results.
About one to two years after your initial appointment, you will notice that your Radiesse results are fading. At this point, you will require additional injections to maintain your new look.
Immediately after your treatment, you may experience some minor swelling. This will subside quickly – usually in about two days. You can minimize this side effect by applying ice to the treatment area.
Occasionally, clients report bruising, redness, pain, swelling and itchiness. However, all of these effects are mild and temporary.
