As we get older, fine lines and wrinkles become more apparent. This is a result of volume loss and decreased collagen, an essential protein that keeps our skin looking plump, firm and youthful. As volume diminishes and collagen levels decline, our skin becomes less resilient and signs of aging begin to appear. Dermal fillers are among the most requested anti-aging treatments today, due to their ease of use and their ability to create quick improvements to counteract these changes.

Radiesse is an injectable cosmetic treatment that fills in fine lines and wrinkles while stimulating the production of your body’s natural collagen. Injectables are highly customizable, so they can give you natural, beautiful results that enhance your features without leaving you looking “overdone.” If you are interested in injectables and want to learn more about Radiesse, schedule a consultation with Dr. Wilson DuMornay at Broward ENT & Aesthetics in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

About Radiesse

Dermal fillers help to smooth away lines and replenish lost volume and fullness. They can also correct imperfections that aren’t associated with aging, such as facial asymmetries. Dermal fillers are popular as a stand-alone treatment for individuals with early signs of aging or as a complement to facial rejuvenation surgery to enhance results further.

Radiesse is a volumizing filler that contains calcium-based microspheres suspended in gel. Once injected, the microspheres form an internal scaffold that immediately supports your skin and gives it a smoother surface. Radiesse continues to work in the weeks after a treatment session by stimulating your body to produce more collagen naturally. Radiesse is most often used to fill in areas where volume loss has occurred around the nose and mouth. This treatment can also be used in the backs of the hands to enhance volume, resulting in an overall more youthful appearance.

Pretreatment Instructions

Please notify Dr. DuMornay if you are taking any blood thinners, such as warfarin or aspirin, which can cause excessive bruising or bleeding at the injection site. It’s also important to tell Dr. DuMornay if you’ve recently had a skin peel or any other similar treatment.


The Procedure

This simple procedure begins with Dr. DuMornay identifying where to administer each injection. You may be given a topical anesthetic to ease any pain you might feel during the procedure. The injections are administered using a fine needle to further minimize discomfort. Radiesse treatments are completed quickly, and because there is no recovery time necessary after receiving the injections, and you may return home or to work immediately following the procedure.

Side Effects

The most common side effects reported from those receiving Radiesse injections include:

  • Bruising
  • Redness
  • Itching
  • Pain
  • Swelling

In addition, those receiving Radiesse injections in their hands have also reported:

  • Loss of sensation
  • Difficulty with movement
  • Lumps or nodules

It’s expected that swelling will resolve within 24 to 36 hours. Bruising or discomfort can be safely treated with over-the-counter medication. If you notice any symptoms that appear concerning, contact our office immediately.

Radiesse Results

Immediately after receiving Radiesse injections, you will notice improvements, with full results occurring over time. The filler instantly enhances volume and smoothes away unwanted lines. As Radiesse continues to work within your body, increasing collagen production to replenish your skin’s internal structure, you will see additional improvements. Many patients enjoy their revitalized look for a year or more after treatment. Radiesse injections can be repeated as needed to maintain your results.
