A Simple Procedure with Organic Results

Radiesse is a filler composed of tiny calcium hydroxyapatite (CaHA) gel microspheres that work to correct facial wrinkles, decrease facial volume and address hands that feature disproportionate aging. One of the most amazing things about this procedure—which typically takes about 15 minutes—is how organic the results are. The Radiesse filler works with your body to trigger its own collagen production. As your body then absorbs and metabolizes the filler over time, you’ll be left with your own, revitalized, natural collagen response. It’s a perfect way to address appearance concerns with a simple approach.

Should I Consider Radiesse? 

Dr. Murphy understands that no matter what the procedure, patients are bound to be curious if they’re making the right decision. While the Radiesse is incredibly non-invasive, questions and concerns are normal. Typically, Dr. Murphy’s patients who elect to have Radiesse include: 

  • Those looking to restore a more natural and vibrant appearance to their face
  • Those looking to correct wrinkles in their smile lines, marionette lines, and mouth corner areas
  • Those looking to address prominent veins and tendons on the backs of your hands
  • Patients put off by more intense surgical procedures who still want to address concerns about their face and hands 
  • Those looking to minimize nasolabial folds

Your Initial Consultation

Again, while Radiesse represents a minimally invasive procedure, Dr. Murphy knows that there will always be concerns when taking steps to address appearance issues. Your initial consultation is an important part of your journey and a chance for you to feel secure in your decision. 

Dr. Murphy will talk to you about your reasons and goals for the procedure and answer any questions you may have. We want you to walk away feeling like you are well-versed in the science of the procedure as well as feeling prepared and comforted. So much about this journey is about feeling better and that feeling should start here. 

What to Expect on the Day of the Procedure

To begin, Dr. Murphy will administer local anesthesia to ensure your comfort throughout the treatment. You may feel some small discomfort with the injection and numbing for several hours afterward. Then, our master injectors will implant the calcium hydroxyapatite (CaHA) gel microspheres into your subject areas. The procedure typically takes no longer than 15 minutes.

Another amazing feature of the Radiesse procedure is that there is no recovery period necessary. You’ll be able to resume normal life activities immediately. Some minor swelling is to be expected and should subside within several days. During that time, make sure to avoid too much direct sunlight or extreme heat. 

Enjoying Your Final Results

Within a week of your procedure, you will be able to enjoy the full results. A more youthful, vibrant appearance. These results typically last between one and two years, at which time, you can elect to have another round of the procedure.
