With microspheres of calcium hydroxyapatite in a flexible gel, this injectable fills and smooths the appearance of your face without an invasive surgery. Radiesse is approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) to safely contour your face, and it may be used with other injectable treatments (wrinkle fillers and relaxers) for a custom procedure to rejuvenate your appearance. Look several years younger and raise your self-image with Radiesse injectable wrinkle fillers at the Institute of Plastic Surgery in Colorado Springs, CO.
Men and women who are in good health and have mild to moderate facial lines and wrinkles are great patients for Radiesse treatments. It can treat marionette lines, smile lines, chin wrinkles, pre-jowl folds, and fine lines that form in the corners of the lips. Radiesse is also safe to address volume that is often lost with age in the hands to make them softer and more youthful. You shouldn't receive this treatment if you have an allergy to lidocaine or other ingredients found in the injectable. Be sure to talk to us if you have any allergies (whether mild or severe) and any medical disorders or conditions. If you are pregnant, breastfeeding, might become pregnant, or are trying to conceive in the next several years, you shouldn't get Radiesse injections.

"Blessed that Dr. Dash did my BA - I’m 3 days post op from my BA and couldn’t have asked for a better physician to do my surgery. Dr. Dash and her staff were amazing. I was a little nervous going into my first consult, but everyone made me feel so comfortable. Dr. Dash throughly went over the different kinds of implants, case studies that have been done and answered every question that I had. She is very patient, kind and ful..."- B. / RealSelf / Oct 22, 2018
"Total facial resurfacing - I have had horrible cystic acne from a very young age. I’m 32 and I still break out on occasion. It doesn’t help that I pick at it either, but the scars are awful. I’ve always been self conscious about my face. I decided to go and do something about it when I decided I wanted a breast lift/aug. Some light shows more of the depth of these rolling scar better than others. It has been 24 hours..."- Y. / RealSelf / Sep 22, 2018
"Breast lift with implants - I have had fairly large breasts since high school. They were great and followed me everywhere. Then I went to college and gain the “freshmen 50” (yes 50, not 15) and they got quite large. Between yo-yo dieting, poor nutrition, and inconsistent exercising, they just look sad and deflated.

Radiesse injections are performed in a treatment room in around 30 – 60 minutes once you have completed your consultation. First, you will be seated in a relaxed position as the injection sites are cleaned and marked. Many patients feel only mild discomfort throughout the procedure at the first prick of the needle, but, if needed, a numbing agent will be applied to the treatment sites. The Radiesse dose, selected during your consultation, will be placed in a fine needle. The pre-marked site of injection will guide the injector to carefully administer Radiesse into the skin. After the treatment is complete, a compress can be held to the treated areas to alleviate bruising and swelling.
What to Expect
Following your treatment, you may have some redness, bruising, and swelling. This is normal and should last for around a week. these side effects may typically be concealed with cosmetics. If the bruising, swelling, or redness lasts longer than ten days or if you are concerned, please contact our office. Many patients have visible results right away, with final results appearing in a month or so. Your face will look softer, younger, and have a natural glow. Radiesse typically lasts longer compared to other dermal fillers, with improvements for around 1 – 2 years. You can talk to your surgeon at the appointment about how soon to get your next injection to touch up your results.
