The loss of collagen is one of the primary reasons for the gradual loss of volume from your skin. Radiesse is a unique dermal filler with a formulation designed to stimulate natural skin regeneration, thus reversing the signs of aging. At LivingYoung Center, we provide highly personalized Radiesse treatments to stimulate collagen production, enhance facial volume, soften facial creases and wrinkles, and help you achieve the ideal facial contours.
Reverse signs of aging
What is Radiesse?
Radiesse is a unique, non-invasive treatment that smoothes wrinkles and fine lines around the nose and mouth. It’s a dermal filler made of calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres suspended in a gel. When injected into targeted facial regions, it settles underneath the skin to enhance facial volume and fill out the fine lines and wrinkles. Over time, Radiesse also encourages collagen production, thus ensuring naturalized results based on your body’s natural healing capabilities.
How Does Radiesse Work?
Radiesse is made of the primary ingredient calcium hydroxylapatite, a naturally occurring and biocompatible mineral that encourages collagen production within your body. Collagen is a fibrous protein that makes your skin look firm, taut, and youthful. The loss of collagen because of age is the primary reason for the loss of facial volume and the subsequent development of wrinkles and “crepey” skin. Radiesse restores your skin’s collagen reserves, thus helping you achieve the ideal, youthful facial contours.

Radiesse: Treatment Overview
Radiesse is a simple, in-office treatment that concludes within 30 minutes at our medical spa. Our cosmetic providers carefully examine your facial skin, discuss your goals, and review your medical history to determine if you’re the right candidate for Radiesse fillers. Your facial skin is cleansed, and we mark the targeted treatment areas. Finally, the appropriate Radiesse units are carefully injected into the treatment areas using ultrafine needles.
Radiesse: Recovery & Aftercare
Radiesse is a completely safe procedure with minimal post-treatment side effects, such as itching, swelling, redness, and bruising around the treatment areas. The side effects are mild and tolerable, so you can resume your daily activities and work immediately — no downtime. While you can resume most of your daily activities, you should avoid strenuous workouts and direct sunlight for a few days.
Radiesse: Results & Longevity
Radiesse produces instant results — your facial skin will look smoother and fuller as you leave the medical spa. However, the results gradually improve over several weeks as your body produces new collagen fibers. In some cases, the results might also continue improving for a year after treatment. You can expect the overall results to last for 12 to 18 months, following which you may need additional treatments.
