About Radiesse

Radiesse is composed of calcium hydroxyapatite, a natural substance taken from the body's bones and skin. When injected into the skin, Radiesse ignites the body's collagen production, causing it to produce more rapidly in the injected areas. This allows the skin to be strengthened and more volume to be added to places that are affected by wrinkles, lines, or other cosmetic issues.

Our double board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Robert Chiu, offers Radiesse to his patients at Today's Cosmetic Surgery to help fill out their facial appearance. He accomplishes this by adding extra volume, as well as smoothing out any wrinkles or lines that may occur due to aging. The result is a better-contoured appearance that has an overall youthful look. We invite our Pittsburgh, PA patients to schedule a consult to learn more about Radiesse and the benefits of injectable wrinkle fillers.

Ideal Candidates

The best candidates for Radiesse:

  • Have moderate to severe lines, wrinkles, and folds near the mouth and between the mouth and nose
  • Have age-related volume loss in the cheeks
  • Desire long-term results
  • Desire natural-looking results

What to Expect

Before the treatment, Dr. Chiu will determine the appropriate dosage and area(s) to be treated for an individual patient. Radiesse will be injected using a fine needle. Since it’s already mixed with Lidocaine (a numbing agent), additional numbing usually isn’t needed but is provided depending on the patient’s preference. A treatment takes around 30 minutes to complete. There’s no downtime associated with Radiesse, and patients can return to their normal activities.

Anticipated Results

After a Radiesse treatment, patients can experience a sensation of numbness, redness, mild bruising, or itching. These side effects should subside within a day or two. Immediately after an injection, patients will notice a marked difference in smoother, more volumized, firmer skin with diminished lines, wrinkles, and folds. Results can last up to 1 year.
