What are the Benefits of RADIESSE®?

By: Jeanine Christian-La Touche


Dermal fillers are a popular choice for men and women looking to add or restore volume in their faces or body without going under the knife. With more fillers on the market than ever before, you may be overwhelmed trying to understand which product will be most effective for you. The answer will depend on your particular concerns and what you’re hoping to accomplish with fillers. For many patients, RADIESSE is an attractive option and can be used to treat a number of different complaints. At La Touche Élite Aesthetics in Myrtle Beach, SC, registered nurse anesthetist Jeanine Christian-La Touche offers both RADIESSE and Hyperdilute RADIESSE to help patients achieve their anti-aging goals and feel more confident about their appearance. Review the benefits of RADIESSE below to learn if it may be right for you.

Is RADIESSE a filler?

Yes. RADIESSE is a calcium hydroxyapatite-based injectable filler that is FDA approved for restoring volume in the face and hands.

Where can RADIESSE be used?

RADIESSE injections are ideal for correcting deep lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth, such as marionette lines. Additionally, RADIESSE can be injected into the hands to address age-related volume loss and achieve smoother, younger-looking hands.

Why should I choose RADIESSE?

RADIESSE fillers are a fantastic option for patients who have moderate to advanced wrinkles and lines around the nose and mouth, or volume loss in the hands. An added benefit of RADIESSE is that the supportive filler mimics connective tissue for support while simultaneously stimulating the body’s natural production of collagen, which ultimately helps firm and tighten the skin. Patients looking for long-lasting fillers will also be excited to learn that the results of RADIESSE can often be enjoyed for up to two years.

What is Hyperdilute RADIESSE?

Hyperdilute RADIESSE is a thinned mixture of RADIESSE, saline, and lidocaine. When injected, Hyperdilute RADIESSE encourages collagen generation for smoother, firmer skin while providing a subtle volumizing effect. Hyperdilute can help with cellulite, skin laxity, and volume loss in the following areas:

  • Face
  • Neck
  • Décolletage
  • Chest
  • Abdomen
  • Hands
  • Knees
  • Buttocks

How soon do you see results after RADIESSE injections?

Unlike injectable wrinkle relaxers, filler injections provide patients with almost instantly visible enhancements. However, patients should expect mild bruising and swelling following RADIESSE injections. Once these side effects resolve, which may take up to two weeks, the outcome can be enjoyed. Another potential side effect of filler injections is lumpiness or bumpiness, which should smooth and soften after about 1 – 2 weeks as the fillers settle.

Can RADIESSE be combined with other injectables?

Absolutely. In fact, the most beautiful and natural-looking results are often achieved with a combination of multiple dermal fillers and wrinkle relaxers, as each product is designed to treat specific areas or types of concerns. Our knowledgeable team will work with you to determine the most fitting combination of injectables that help meet your needs and goals.
