11Do you want a younger look, but are afraid to undergo a surgical procedure? Nowadays, you don’t have to schedule a facelift just to shed 10 years off your face, especially since you can obtain similar results with the help of dermal fillers. Dr. Gerstman can help you reach your goal painlessly and with as little discomfort as possible, with Radiesse.

One of Dr. Gerstman’s top choices, Radiesse has the advantage of being among the very few dermal fillers approved by the Food and Drugs Administration.

How does Radiesse work?

What makes this dermal filler superior to other alternatives is the fact that it acts immediately after being injected. To put it simply, you will be able to notice the added volume and lift in the treated areas soon after the procedure. In fact, Radiesse is able to restore the beautiful facial contour and stimulate collagen production, unlike numerous others fillers that only carry out one of these functions.

The reason why Radiesse can reduce the visibility of the aging signs so quickly stems from its unique active ingredients that don’t just plump the wrinkled area, but also stimulates the production of collagen. Moreover, you’ll be happy to learn that because your body’s enhanced ability to produce collagen continues for months, you’ll be able to enjoy a more supple skin and younger appearance for over a year.

What areas can be treated with Radiesse?

Radiesse is a dermal filler that can be safely injected into any facial area that needs “correcting”. However, as many clinical trials have shown, the treatment is highly efficient and provides the best results in terms of reducing:

  • Marionette lines
  • Pre-jowl
  • Smile lines
  • Chin wrinkles
  • Corners of the mouth
  • Frown lines
  • Forehead wrinkles
  • Smile lines

Why choose Radiesse?

This dermal filler is superior to other similar treatments because:

  • It provides immediate results (right after the procedure)
  • Patients have  experienced mostly mild side effects
  • It is a painless procedure (the interaction with lidocaine was deemed as safe by the FDA)
  • Its effects are longer lasting compared to other fillers (even up to 2 years in some cases)
  • It contains natural ingredients and doesn’t present serious health risks

What should you expect during the treatment?

In spite of the fact that Radiesse is an injection treatment, the procedure is minimally invasive and, as many of our customers can confirm, painless. Nevertheless, if you’re scared of the needle or have sensitive skin, rest assured Dr. Gerstman will add an anesthetic (lidocaine) for your enhanced comfort.  We can guarantee the maximum efficiency of the filler even when it’s mixed with anesthetic, a fact that was also confirmed by the FDA’s clinical trials.

Radiesse: FAQ

Because it provides immediate results and stimulates natural collagen production, Radiesse is one of most popular choices here at Medical Aesthetics. Among the few dermal fillers approved by FDA, Radiesse has also underwent several clinical trials, all with amazing results.


Are there any side effects associated with Radiesse?

Some patients could experience certain mild adverse reactions following the procedure. However, the irritations, redness, swelling, bruising, tenderness, or itching you could experience at the injection site will subside on their own, usually in less than one day.

How does Radiesse work?

Once injected, some of the calcium microspheres break down immediately to plump the skin, thus replenishing your facial contour. As time goes by, the rest of the microspheres break down gradually and continue to stimulate the production of collagen. After approximately one year, the filler is completely absorbed by the body, leaving behind only the collagen produced by your skin.

How soon will you see the results?

As most patients confirm, the results become noticeable immediately after the treatment. While it is possible to experience some mild redness and swelling in the treatment area, these side effects will subside in less than 24 hours. We want to highlight the fact that the positive results will improve in time, as the product is progressively absorbed by the body. Check out our Radiesse before and after photos to see what kind of results others have experienced.

Is Radiesse right for you?

In the event that you want to correct those unattractive moderate to severe wrinkles and facial folds, you should discuss the possibility of a Radiesse treatment with Dr. Gerstman. Even though the product has been classified as natural and non-allergic, it is not recommended for people with a history of severe allergies or patients with bleeding disorders as well as pregnant and breastfeeding women.

Is Radiesse treatment painful?

Radiesse is a minimally invasive treatment, which is quick and painless. Dr. Gerstman can prescribe an anesthetic, namely Lidocaine, to patients with extra sensitive skin or those who are scared of needles. The FDA approved mixture is completely safe, doesn’t pose health risks and has been reported to reduce pain in around 90% of the cases.

What is Radiesse made from?

The active ingredients included in Radiesse consist of calcium-based microspheres and gel, similar to the ones that occur naturally in the body. Unless you have a history of anaphylaxis, you can safely undergo a treatment with no previous allergy testing. It is important to note that this filler doesn’t include any animal or human derived compounds.

Why is Radiesse superior to other dermal fillers?

Aside from the fact that Radiesse is the only calcium based dermal filler, it is important to note that it is also among the few products that stimulate natural collagen production and augment skin appearance at the same time.  The results last for over one year, which is longer than numerous other dermal fillers.
