How Long Does Radiesse® Last? 

Wrinkles and volume loss occur naturally with age or weight loss but you have options for restoring a youthful appearance. Radiesse® works to add volume and smooth deep folds and restore your youthful contours. This versatile, collagen-stimulating filler gives you immediate results as well as long-term improvements. 

What is Radiesse®?

Loss of collagen and the effects of gravity often lead to loss of volume, sagging, and deep folds and creases. Dermal fillers can restore lost volume and plump lines and wrinkles. Radiesse® works differently than most dermal fillers. It adds immediate volume and stimulates collagen production for longer-lasting results. 

How Does Radiesse® Work? 

Compared to most other dermal fillers, Radiesse® uses a material called calcium hydroxylapatite, a mineral found in bones. It comes in a microsphere form suspended in a gel that makes it smooth and resilient. When injected, Radiesse® provides immediate lift and fullness. It also triggers your skin to produce more collagen, leading to improvements in skin’s firmness and thickness. 

How Long Does Radiesse® Last?

Because Radiesse® affects your skin’s collagen production, its results last longer than the filler. Radiesse® results often last up to two years. Typical hyaluronic acid fillers usually last a year or less, making Radiesse® a good choice for those who want long-lasting results. 

Where is Radiesse® Used?

The thick, durable formula makes Radiesse® an excellent filler for deep lines around the nose and mouth. It also excels in adding volume and providing sculpting to areas of the face you want to enhance. Places you might have Radiesse® include:

  • Cheeks
  • Chin
  • Jawline
  • Temples
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Hands (the first filler FDA-approved for this use)

In addition, Radiesse® can be hyperdiluted with sterile saline. In this form, Radiesse® no longer acts to add volume, but its collagen-stimulating properties are still active. Used to treat thin crepey skin on the face, neck, decolletage, and upper arms, thighs, and knees, it thickens and enhances the skin. This reduces the appearance of laxity and improves skin texture.
