Radiesse soft-tissue filler will reduce the fine lines and deep folds between the nose and mouth, restore fullness to the lips, and greatly diminish facial blemishes and acne scars. Radiesse creates long-lasting results with less product for a youthful, glowing complexion. Radiesse is composed of unique calcium-based microspheres in a natural gel. Radiesse is perfect for correcting deep folds and wrinkles on the face since these areas get a more constant muscle workout, so a denser, more durable filler product like Radiesse works better and longer than other similar beauty treatments, such as Juvéderm or Restylane. Once injected in the skin, Radiesse remains pliable and soft, so it’s natural looking and natural feeling. Other benefits to Radiesse include that it provides immediate full correction, it degrades gently and evenly over time (for some people results last nearly 2 years), it contains no animal products, and it stimulates the body’s own natural collagen production. Board-certified plastic surgeons Dr. Schmid and Dr. Mooty of The Lubbock Plastic Surgery Institute perform consultations and Radiesse injections at their offices in Lubbock and Midland for patients throughout West Texas and East New Mexico.

Radiesse can be injected during an office visit in just 30 minutes. Before the procedure, the injection areas will be marked and cleaned. A local anesthetic may be used for additional comfort, however the filler itself is mixed with an anesthetic called Lidocaine. Using a syringe, the surgeon will inject the Radiesse filler into the skin. Following the procedure, patients may feel numb or experience redness near the injection sites, which normally subsides in a short time. There is no downtime, and patients are able to return to work following their appointment.
What to Expect
Patients should notice a difference to their face almost immediately following a Radiesse® injection. However, because the injection ingredient works to produce and stimulate collagen development, results will be longer lasting than some of the other fillers on the market. Patients should expect results that include added volume to the face which will smooth out wrinkle, and typically last up to one year. Patients can repeat this procedure when they feel their results are no longer visible.

What About Other Fillers?
Patients who are considering an injectable filler as part of their cosmetic treatment have a diverse selection of fillers to choose from. Fillers such as Radiesse are considered temporary, even though the results may last up to a full year. Common filler procedures include collagen, calcium hydroxyapatite, hyaluronic acid, polylactic acid, and the heaviest of the fillers, PMMA. During your consultation, we will discuss the various fillers and evaluate your facial tone, laxity, and volume levels to help you decide which filler may be the best choice.
What Makes Radiesse Different?
Radiesse is the only dermal filler composed of calcium-based microspheres, which are comparable to hyaluronic acid injectable fillers due to the natural ability to stimulate collagen production. The results slightly vary from the two types of fillers, and generally patients are more pleased with results from Radiesse.
What About Side Effects?
Patients undergoing Radiesse may have mild redness, bruising, numbness and/or itching that occur following treatment. These are temporary side effects that usually disappear within a day or two.
