Rejuvenate Your Face with Radiesse: Everything You Need to Know

The new frontiers of biorestructuring

Radiesse facial treatment has become increasingly popular among aesthetic doctors due to its remarkable impact in reducing the signs of aging and improving the overall appearance of the face. In this article, we will explore in detail the use of Radiesse for facial rejuvenation, its most common applications, administration techniques, its unique formulation, the extraordinary results it can offer, and important considerations for achieving optimal treatment.

What is Radiesse?

Radiesse is a dermal filler based on calcium hydroxyapatite, a natural component present in the human body. Its unique formulation allows for a dualistic action: it offers immediate volume correction thanks to the presence of calcium hydroxyapatite microspheres suspended in a methyl-cellulose carrier gel, and stimulates collagen production over time, guaranteeing long-term results . But not only! Unlike other fillers, Radiesse largely stimulates the production of elastin and proteoglycans, reduces the inflammatory response, allowing natural regeneration of the organism. Furthermore, the latest studies indicate that a process of neo-angiogenesis is activated which also determines an improvement in the appearance of the skin itself, due to the greater influx of blood and nutrients.

Common Applications of Radiesse:
  • Reduction of Wrinkles and Fine Lines: Radiesse is particularly effective in treating marionette lines, nasolabial wrinkles and jaw lines.

  • Facial Volumization and Contouring: It is widely used to improve the definition of the cheeks, chin and temples, giving a younger and more toned appearance to the face.

  • Non-Surgical Nose Reshaping: Also known as a rhinofiller, Radiesse can be used to correct slight imperfections of the nose, without resorting to surgery.

  • Facial rejuvenation: thanks to particular dilutions Radiesse can be used with excellent results for global facial rejuvenation. This is the application that I most recommend to show the real potential of this product and to maintain a young face over the years.

  • Off Label: Although Radiesse is primarily approved for the treatment of facial wrinkles and facial volumization, it is used "off-label" in other areas of the body. For example, it can be used to improve the shape and volume of the hands, for eyebrow lifting and even for the improvement of the neck and décolleté.

  • Long-Term Collagen Stimulation: In addition to its immediate effects in providing volume and filling wrinkles, Radiesse is unique in that it stimulates natural collagen production in the long-term. This means that its benefits can be maintained even after the filling material has gradually been absorbed by the body.

Application techniques:
  • Patient Preparation: It is essential to conduct a thorough assessment of the patient to understand their expectations, medical history and any contraindications.

  • Anesthesia: The area to be treated can be anesthetized with creams or local anesthetic infiltrations to ensure maximum comfort for the patient.

  • Injection: Radiesse is injected with cannula or fine needles following a specific technique to achieve precise and natural results.

  • Massage and Shaping: After the injection, it is important to gently massage the treated area to evenly distribute the product and ensure a harmonious shape.

Important Considerations:
  • Lasting Results: Results from Radiesse treatment can last up to 12-18 months, making it an excellent choice for patients who want long-lasting results.

  • Side Effects : Although they are rare, it is important to inform patients of potential side effects, including redness, swelling or tenderness in the treated area, which tend to resolve spontaneously within a few days.


The facial treatment with Radiesse represents a versatile and reliable solution for facial rejuvenation, offering natural and long-lasting results. With proper patient assessment, accurate administration technique, and ongoing professional education, physicians can ensure satisfying experiences and exceptional outcomes for their patients.
