About Radiesse

Today there are multiple injectable fillers on the market to use to get a more youthful, refreshed appearance. The Radiesse injectable wrinkle treatment offered by Raleigh, NC plastic surgeon Dr. Glenn Lyle is great for mild to moderate lines and wrinkles throughout the face, and for fixing age-related volume loss in the hands. Women and men who might not have a lot of time for repeat appointments appreciate the long-lasting results (1 – 2 years) of Radiesse. Using calcium hydroxyapatite microspheres in a water-based gel, this injectable plumps and softens the look of your skin without the time and expense of surgery. It has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to safely and effectively improve your facial features. Radiesse can be used in tandem with other injectables (wrinkle relaxers and fillers) for a unique procedure plan that restores your skin. Look refreshed and boost your confidence with Radiesse injectable wrinkle treatments at Raleigh Plastic Surgery Center in Raleigh, NC.

Ideal Candidates

Women and men who are in good general health and want to correct their mild to moderate wrinkles and lines are ideal candidates for Radiesse. It can improve smile lines, marionette lines, pre-jowl folds, chin wrinkles, and lines on the edges of the mouth. Radiesse is also designed to treat age-related volume loss in the hands to help them appear fuller and younger looking. You should not have this injection if you are allergic to lidocaine or any ingredients in the product. Make sure to tell Dr. Lyle about any allergies (severe or not) and if you have a history of any bleeding disorders. If you are breastfeeding, pregnant, may be pregnant, or are considering pregnancy within 1 – 2 years, you should not use Radiesse treatments.

Procedure Technique

Radiesse wrinkle injections take place in one of our treatment rooms at Raleigh Plastic Surgery Center, lasting about 30 – 60 minutes after your consultation. To start the procedure, you will lay comfortably while the areas of injection will be cleaned and marked. Most patients feel tolerable discomfort during their treatment at the initial prick of the needle, but if preferred, a local anesthetic may be spread on the injection sites. The dosage of Radiesse, determined at your personalized treatment planning session, will be prepared in an ultra-fine syringe. The marked injection sites will help the injector to carefully administer Radiesse into the needed areas. As soon as the injections are done, a cold compress will be applied to help reduce swelling and bruising.

What to Expect

After your Radiesse injection, you may see mild swelling, redness, and bruising. This is common and should only last for about 5 – 10 days. These side effects can usually be camouflaged with makeup. If the side effects last longer or seem excessive, please do not hesitate to call Raleigh Plastic Surgery Center. Most patients see light results minutes after the treatment with better results developing over time. Your face should appear younger, softer, and lifted. Radiesse tends to last longer than some of the other fillers (about 1 – 2 years). You should talk to Dr. Glenn Lyle during your consultation about when to schedule your next treatment to maintain your results.
