What is Radiesse?
When it comes to attaining a more youthful, refreshed appearance, patients have several injectable treatment options. The Radiesse injectable wrinkle treatment offered by Nirvana Med Spa in Little Rock, AR is great for mild to moderate lines and wrinkles throughout the face, and for treating age-related volume loss in the hands. Patients who don't have time for multiple appointments prefer the lasting results (1 – 2 years) of Radiesse. With calcium hydroxyapatite microspheres in a water-based gel, Radiesse fills and softens the look of your skin. Radiesse is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to safely contour your facial features. When creating a personalized treatment plan that helps revive your skin, we can also combine it with other injectables, such as wrinkle relaxers.

Who is a candidate for RADIESSE?
Men and women who are in good health and have mild to moderate facial lines and wrinkles are great candidates for Radiesse treatments. It can address smile lines, marionette lines, chin wrinkles, and pre-jowl folds. Radiesse is also designed to treat volume loss in the hands, which makes them feel smoother and appear younger-looking. You should not undergo this treatment if you have an allergy to lidocaine or other ingredients in the product. Please make sure to talk to us about any allergies (whether mild or severe) and your medical history. If you are pregnant, breastfeeding, may be pregnant, or are considering pregnancy within several years, you shouldn't use Radiesse treatments.
What to expect during RADIESSE injections
Once you have completed your consultation, Radiesse injections take place in one of our spacious treatment rooms. The treatments last about 30 – 60 minutes. To begin the treatment, we ask patients to sit in a relaxed position while the injection sites are cleaned and marked. Most patients only feel mild discomfort throughout the treatment, which happens at the initial prick. If needed, we can apply a local anesthetic near the injection sites. Next, your Radiesse injection is placed using an ultra-fine needle and administered into the skin. The pre-marked injection sites will help our team carefully inject Radiesse into the needed areas. After the treatment is done, we will apply a cold compress to alleviate any bruising and swelling.
How long is recovery after RADIESSE?
After your treatment, you may have slight bruising, redness, and swelling. These symptoms are normal and should last for around a week. However, you can conceal these side effects with cosmetics. If the bruising, swelling, or redness lasts longer or if you are concerned, please do not hesitate to call Nirvana Med Spa. Immediately after the treatment, many patients see significant changes with final results appearing in about a month. Your face should appear younger, softer, and have a natural glow. Lasting for up to 1 – 2 years, Radiesse is longer-lasting compared to other dermal fillers. During your consultation, we will discuss when to schedule your next follow-up appointment so you can maintain your results.
How much does Radiesse cost?
The cost of Radiesse will depend on the number of syringes to match your goals. During your initial consultation at our practice, your injector will listen to your concerns and goals, then they can develop your personalized treatment plan. After this, they can discuss your potential costs and payment options.
How does Radiesse compare to other fillers?
Fillers all have different formulas and properties to fit different concerns. Common filler materials include hyaluronic acid (HA), CaHa (calcium hydroxyapatite), poly-L-lactic acid, and PMMA (polymethylmethacrylate). Radiesse is composed of calcium-based microspheres, which are similar to HA injectable fillers due to the natural ability to prompt collagen production in your body. In your consultation, we will explain the different choices and assess your skin's volume, laxity, and tone to recommend which one is correct for you.
Are Radiesse injections painful?
Typically, patients do not need numbing cream before their treatments. However, numbing cream is available to make you feel more comfortable. Most patients experience brief and minor discomfort as the needle goes in.
What are the side effects of Radiesse?
Treatments with Radiesse have a low risk of serious side effects if performed by an experienced injector, like the ones at Nirvana Med Spa. In your initial consult, tell your injector about medications you take and if you have any allergies to avoid a reaction. Right after your injection, you may develop mild redness, bruising, itching, or numbness. This is temporary and should be gone within a day or two.
What other procedures can I combine with Radiesse?
Injections of Radiesse may be performed along with other injectable treatments to achieve optimal results. Many patients combine wrinkle fillers, like Radiesse, with BOTOX® or other muscle relaxants to produce a refreshed appearance. Speak to your injector in your consultation to learn more about other procedures that can be combined with Radiesse.
