Radiesse is a safe cosmetic treatment to fill skin folds, creases, and wrinkles around the face and in the hands. The Radiesse procedure is an injection that stimulates the naturally produced collagen proteins in your body. Collagen is responsible for the development of skin and filling of wrinkles in your face, as well as on the front and back of your hands. Radiesse injections work to reduce the aging in your skin by increasing collagen productivity as well as aiding in the production of new collagen over time. Your skin will look much smoother and younger after the injection as it works to help naturally fill wrinkles in your skin.
Many individuals experience skin wrinkles in their hands and on their face when they age. Radiesse is a very safe and non-invasive procedure that works to help naturally fill these wrinkles and provide a long-term result. Patients who receive Radiesse treatment can enjoy a minimum of two years of results before potentially requiring another procedure. Radiesse is a good treatment option to correct smile lines, as well as any wrinkles found on the back side of the hands. This treatment poses little to no side effects when administered to adults.
The licensed physicians at Elume Medspa will begin your treatment by determining the correct dosage required for the procedure. After thoroughly marking and cleaning the injection site, they will then administer the Radiesse injections.

The side effects should resolve on their own if the injection was administered correctly. Patients will be able to immediately head home after the procedure, but should avoid strenuous activity or long exposure to the sun for a minimum of 24 hours post procedure.

Likewise, those with other conditions such as frequent bleeding, untreated diabetes, or an autoimmune disorder, as well as those allergic to any ingredients used in the injection, should not receive Radiesse treatment. Pregnant and breastfeeding women should wait before receiving the injections. Those who recently underwent other cosmetic or surgical procedures should wait at least two to three weeks before receiving a Radiesse injection.
