At your consultation, you can discuss the potential benefits of Radiesse in Orange County with Dr. Sikorski.

What makes Radiesse® different from other dermal fillers?

Radiesse is made of very small, smooth calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres suspended in a water-based gel carrier. As Radiesse is injected, the gel and Radiesse Microspheres form a “scaffold,” stimulating collagen production and encouraging tissue growth in and around the injection area. This “partnership” between Radiesse and your own body creates a natural look consisting of your own tissue and Radiesse Microspheres.

Over time, your body absorbs the gel carrier while your collagen grows and infiltrates the area, replacing the gel with your own natural tissue. The Radiesse Microspheres continue to provide the support and structure for your body to grow new tissue and collagen until the Microspheres are also safely and naturally absorbed into your body. Even after the Radiesse is gone, there is the benefit of your own collagen replacement. Although dermal filler injections do not stop the aging process, your new collagen growth can set the clock back a bit by keeping your skin firmer and smoother.

Is a Skin Test Required?

Radiesse requires no pre-injection skin testing to determine your risk of allergic reaction because it contains no animal or human-derived materials. CaHA has been used in orthopedic surgical products for many years and is a proven safe material. Because Radiesse in Orange County has a 100% biocompatible formulation, it has minimal risk of causing an unexpected allergic response.

Radiesse® Provides:

  • Immediate results
  • Encourages your own natural collagen production
  • Requires less product than other fillers
  • Creates scaffolding for integration of your own collagen
  • Makes new collagen as one of the few biostimulatory fillers available
  • “Biohacks” your fibroblasts

The Role of Radiesse® in Instant Facial “Lifting” or “Volumizing”

Radiesse, along with softer fillers such as JUVÉDERM® Collection of Fillers, RHA fillers, Sculptra, Versa, Renuva, or Restylane, are core components in a liquid facelift procedure. BOTOX® Cosmetic plays a substantial role in face “lifting” as it allows muscles to relax, alleviating frowns and furrows that tend to push down the brow.

Injectables refill the deflating “balloon” that comes from age-related volume loss and descent of the facial tissues and muscle. By restoring height to the cheekbones, filling hollowed cheek areas, filling in eye hollows, and augmenting the chin and lips, patients can restore the contours lost through aging.

An alternative (or adjunctive) product that provides a more global or generalized volume restoration is Sculptra. Sculptra is not instant in its effects because the lift and the volume it provides are actually from your own collagen. Sculptra is also a biocatalyst for new collagen growth, like Radiesse. Sculptra can improve skin quality, in addition to fillers. In addition to the face, Sculptra works well for improving skin on the abdomen, arms and thighs.

The Importance of Injection Technique and Training

Radiesse and Sculptra both require expert injection technique and specialized training. Due to the nature of the products, their long-term effects, and the specific placement needs, you should seek out a dermatologist or plastic surgeon who has the appropriate medical educational background and training for these injectable products.

The Radiesse® Process of Integration and Stimulation

The cosmetic results are soft and natural-looking and feel like your own tissue. The results are long-lasting but not permanent. The CaHA microspheres naturally degrade to calcium and phosphate ions, which are metabolized by the body’s normal processes.
