1 Radiesse – MD Skin Lab Canada


(Biostimulatory Filler)

Are you looking to smooth wrinkles, stimulate your natural collagen and decrease skin folds on your face, neck and body? Look no further than Radiesse! This natural biostimulatory filler is designed to do just that, providing both immediate and long-lasting results.

Biostimulatory fillers are a popular cosmetic procedure that enhances the appearance of the face, neck and body by adding more volume, definition and structure. At MD Skin Lab, our physician injectors specialize in administering Radiesse to help you achieve a youthful and radiant appearance. Let's get into the specifics of Radiesse and how it can help you achieve your desired look!

Radiesse Explained

What is Radiesse?

Radiesse is an advanced biostimulatory filler used to smooth moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds (the creases that extend from the corner of your nose to the corner of your mouth) and provide volume/support, such as in the cheeks, chin, and jawline.

When individuals begin aging, they tend to experience a decline of natural hyaluronic acid. Radiesse can help them create more definition in facial structures and smooth out necklines and wrinkles without the fear of looking unnatural.

Radiesse fillers use calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres, which provide immediate volume and also stimulate the body's natural collagen production, resulting in smoother and firmer skin with longer lasting results. You can achieve your desired results by working with an experienced physician injector at MD Skin Lab, who will provide you with a tailored plan.

How Does Radiesse Work?

Radiesse works by injecting calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres into the skin. These microspheres provide immediate volume and act as a scaffold, stimulating collagen production in the treated areas. Over time, the body absorbs the microspheres, but the newly produced collagen remains, offering long-lasting results! This dual-action process provides immediate correction and promotes natural-looking, long-term improvements, making it a popular treatment with anti-aging benefits.

Who Is It For And Am I A Candidate?

Radiesse is ideal for individuals seeking to address moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, necklines and laxity, and those looking to restore volume in their hands. Additionally, Radiesse also helps with anti-aging, acne scars, neck laxity and overall skin rejuvenation. Our physician injectors at MD Skin Lab recommend Radiesse for all genders looking to plump and smooth their aging skin.

If you are unsure and have any questions, you are always welcome to book a personalized consultation with our experienced physician injectors at MD Skin Lab. A consultation with our experts will determine if Radiesse is the right treatment for you.

What is the Difference Between Radiesse and Other Dermal Fillers? 

Radiesse stands out among other dermal fillers due to its dual-action capability of providing immediate volume restoration while stimulating the body’s natural collagen production for extended results. While hyaluronic acid-based fillers primarily offer volume by attracting moisture, Radiesse is composed of calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres, which are tiny, smooth particles that provide a scaffolding for collagen production, making it an excellent option for enhancing skin volume and improving facial contours. Radiesse works in a two-step process, which we break down below.

  1. Immediate Volume Correction: Upon injection, the CaHA microspheres can provide immediate structure and lift, effectively filling in wrinkles and folds like nasolabial folds (smile lines) and marionette lines (lines around the mouth).

  2. Collagen Stimulation: As the carrier gel is gradually absorbed by the body, the CaHA microspheres remain and act as a scaffold. This scaffold triggers your body to produce its own collagen, a protein that plumps and supports the skin from within, leading to longer-lasting results.

As a result, Radiesse offers a long-lasting solution to facial rejuvenation, delivering both instant improvement and continued enhancement as new collagen forms. This dual-action mechanism achieves a more youthful and natural appearance that lasts longer than traditional fillers. We recommend booking a consultation with our physician injectors to understand which fillers are best for your desired goals.

What Areas Can Be Treated With Radiesse?

Radiesse is versatile and can be used to treat various areas of the face and hands, including:

  • Chin
  • Cheeks
  • Jawline
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Marionette lines
  • Crepey neck Skin
  • Horizontal neck lines
  • Pre-jowl folds
  • Volume loss in the back of the hands
  • Skin Texture
  • Acne scars

Is Radiesse Safe?

Radiesse is Health Canada and FDA-approved and has a proven safety profile. It is made from biocompatible materials that are well-tolerated by the body. However, as with any medical treatment, we recommend consulting with our physician injectors at MD Skin Lab, who are here to provide safe treatment from start to finish.

What Happens During An Appointment?

Our physician injectors are excited to be a part of your Radiesse journey! Once you arrive at the clinic, you will be taken to the treatment room for your consultation. Your physician injector will assess your goals and provide recommendations for your treatment areas. During this process, they will also evaluate your medical history and relevant information to ensure the treatment is performed seamlessly.

Following this, they will take photos of your treatment areas and map out the sections where the fillers are to be injected. Your physician injector will then proceed with the dermal filler injections. Results will be seen almost immediately.

How Long Will A Treatment Take?

A Radiesse treatment session usually takes 30 to 60 minutes, depending on the areas being treated and the extent of correction needed. This makes it convenient for busy schedules.

What Does The Treatment Feel Like?

Most patients describe the sensation as a slight pinch or sting at the injection site. A topical anesthetic helps minimize any discomfort during the procedure. Some patients may experience mild swelling, redness, or bruising, but these side effects typically resolve within a few days.

What Is The Downtime After Radiesse?

There is minimal downtime after a Radiesse treatment. Some patients may experience mild swelling, redness, or bruising at the injection sites, but these side effects typically resolve within a few days. You can resume your normal activities immediately after the treatment, although avoiding strenuous activity and extensive sun or heat exposure for about 24 hours is recommended.

How Many Appointments Will I Need? When Will I See Results?

Many patients see immediate improvement after just one treatment. However, depending on your aesthetic goals, a series of treatments may be recommended for optimal results. The effects of Radiesse can last up to a year to 18 months or more, depending on the individual and the areas treated. Our physician injectors at MD Skin Lab will create a personalized treatment plan to meet your aesthetic goals and discuss the number of appointments needed to achieve the desired outcome.

What are the Benefits of Radiesse?

Radiesse offers a range of benefits that make it a preferred choice for many seeking facial rejuvenation. We break them down below.

  • Long-lasting Results: Radiesse provides extended correction, typically lasting 12-14 months or even up to two years in some cases. This longevity is due to the combination of immediate filling and sustained collagen stimulation.

  • Collagen Boost: Unlike many other fillers, Radiesse fills wrinkles and also enhances overall skin quality and texture by promoting collagen production. This natural collagen boost supports the skin from within, resulting in a healthier, more youthful appearance.

  • Natural Results: Radiesse delivers natural-looking results by subtly filling in wrinkles and lines, ensuring that the enhancements blend seamlessly with your natural facial features.

  • Dual Action: Radiesse acts as both a natural filler and an anti-aging treatment. It provides immediate volume while simultaneously offering skin rejuvenation benefits through collagen stimulation, giving you a comprehensive approach to facial rejuvenation.

    • To determine if Radiesse is the best option for your desired goals, we recommend booking an appointment with our physician injectors. They can help you understand the unique benefits of Radiesse and how it can be tailored to meet your specific needs.

Will I Experience Any Side Effects?

Common side effects of Radiesse include temporary redness, swelling, and bruising at the injection sites. It is important to follow post-treatment care instructions provided by your physician injector.

How Much Does Radiesse Cost? Is Financing Available?

The cost of a Radiesse filler appointment depends on the amount of product used. We also consider which area you would like to have treated (e.g., cheeks, chin, hands, full face, etc). During the initial consultation, your physician injector will create a bespoke treatment plan specifically for you, and the exact cost of your treatments will be provided ahead of time.
