Your face and surrounding skin tissue will immediately look softer, smoother and more natural – without wrinkles. Twenty-four hours after treatment, all redness and swelling (only in some patients) should completely subside, leaving your skin the way you’ve always dreamed.

Radiesse dermal filler is customized to each patient, so cost varies. While many other dermal fillers require multiple visits for the desired result, Radiesse generally lasts one year or more, saving you time and money.
Possible side effects of Radiesse include mild irritation at the injection site to include swelling, itching, bruising or tenderness. Most patients feel relief within 24 hours.
