About Radiesse

These days, there are several injectable dermal fillers available for you to choose from for facial rejuvenation. The Radiesse dermal filler offered by Novato, CA plastic surgeons Drs. Francisco Canales and Heather Furnas is a great treatment option for mild and moderate wrinkles on the face, and for reversing volume loss in the hands. Patients who don't have time for frequent touch-ups prefer the lasting results (over a year in many cases) of Radiesse. With microspheres of calcium hydroxyapatite in a flexible gel, Radiesse fills and smoothes the appearance of your face with this minimally invasive treatment. Radiesse is approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) to effectively and safely volumize your face. It may be used with other injectable treatments (wrinkle fillers and relaxers) for a personalized procedure to rejuvenate your appearance. Look younger and improve your self-image with Radiesse dermal fillers at Allegro MedSpa of Novato in Novato, CA.

Ideal Candidates

Adults who are in overall good health and concerned about mild to moderate lines and wrinkles are the best patients for Radiesse treatments. It can address marionette lines, smile lines, chin wrinkles, pre-jowl folds, and fine lines that form in the sides of the lips. Radiesse is also approved to correct volume that is often lost with age in the hands to help them look smoother and more youthful. You shouldn't receive this treatment if you have an allergy to lidocaine or other ingredients in Radiesse. Be sure to talk to our aesthetic team if you have any allergies (whether mild or severe) and any medical disorders or conditions. If you are pregnant, breastfeeding, might be pregnant, or are trying to conceive in the next several years, you shouldn't get Radiesse injections.

Procedure Technique

Radiesse dermal injections are performed in a treatment room at Allegro MedSpa of Novato in about 10 – 15 minutes once you have completed your consultation. To begin the treatment, you will sit in a relaxed position as the injection sites are cleaned and marked. Many patients feel mild discomfort throughout the procedure at the first prick, but if requested, a numbing cream can be used on the treatment sites. The Radiesse dose chosen during your consultation will be placed in a fine needle. The pre-marked site of injection will help guide the injector to carefully administer Radiesse into the face. Once the treatment is finished, a compress may be held to the treated areas to minimize bruising and swelling.

What to Expect

Following your Radiesse treatment, you may have slight redness, bruising, and swelling. This is normal and should last for around a week. These side effects may typically be covered with cosmetics. If the bruising, swelling, or redness lasts longer than ten days or if you are concerned, please contact Allegro MedSpa of Novato. Many patients have visible results right away with final results appearing in a month or so. Your face will look softer, younger, and more radiant.
