Benefits of Radiesse®
There are a lot of benefits that attract patients to Radiesse®. In addition to improving folds and wrinkles, it can also stimulate your skin’s collagen production. Increased collagen production brings back the volume your skin lost with age. It also helps to make you look more refreshed, in addition to:
- Minimizing or removing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines
- Getting rid of dark circles under the eyes
- Making your eyes appear uplifted
- Minimizing the appearance of crow’s feet
- Smoothing out lines around your lips
- Giving your face a youthful, uplifted appearance by restoring facial volume
How Are Radiesse® Injections Administered?
The first step will be having your skin cleansed by Dr. Papel or Dr. Kontis using an antiseptic solution. An extremely fine needle will be used by either Dr. Papel or Dr. Kontis to inject Radiesse® just below your skin’s surface in the targeted areas where there are wrinkles or folds. The gel injected underneath the skin has lidocaine in it. This serves to numb the area being treated, removing any discomfort you might have during or after the procedure.
Once Radiesse® is injected into the skin, it begins to work by providing support to the tissues underneath the treated area. This causes them to be lifted up and no longer sag. Radiesse® can be injected in multiple places on your face, depending on your desired results. Once the procedure is completed, we will give you a mirror so that you can see the results for yourself. Most patients are surprised to see the positive results that they receive immediately from Radiesse® treatments. It will not only enhance your appearance, but it will also improve the way you feel about yourself.
Preparing for Radiesse® Injections
If you take medications to thin your blood, these should be avoided a few days prior to the procedure to minimize complications. You should also avoid taking medications that contain ibuprofen. It’s important that to consult with your primary care physician before you stop taking any prescribed medications to be certain that it is safe for you to stop taking them. In addition, smoking and drinking alcohol should be avoided during the days before your procedure. At your consultation, Dr. Papel or Dr. Kontis may also give you other instructions to follow.
Individuals who receive Radiesse® injections are able to resume normal activities immediately following the procedure. There is no downtime required. Some patients decide to take a short amount of time to fully recover after the treatment, such as a half-day off of work. You may experience some bruising or light swelling around the area that was injected. If you are concerned about other people noticing this bruising and swelling, it may be a good idea for you to plan a little bit of time off after the procedure.
What Is The Cost Of A Radiesse® Treatment?
The cost for Radiesse® varies depending on the extent of treatment necessary to achieve optimum results. The Facial Plastic Surgicenter accepts all major credit cards. Dr. Papel and Dr. Kontis also offer convenient financing options to their patients.
Are Radiesse® Injections Right for Me?
Do you have wrinkles and loss of volume on your face?

Radiesse® can give you the vibrant, youthful appearance you had when you were younger.
