WHAT IS RADIESSE?
There are multiple injectable wrinkle treatments available for you to choose from when trying to turn back the hands of time. The RADIESSE dermal filler offered by Avanti is great for mild to moderate lines and wrinkles on the face, and for fixing age-related volume loss in the hands. Women and men who don’t have time for frequent visits appreciate the long-lasting results (over a year in many cases) of RADIESSE. With calcium hydroxyapatite microspheres in a potent gel, RADIESSE plumps and smoothes the appearance of your skin without invasive surgery. RADIESSE has been approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) to safely contour your facial features. It may be used with other injectables (wrinkle relaxers and fillers) for a custom procedure plan to rejuvenate your skin. Look refreshed and boost your self-image with RADIESSE dermal fillers at Avanti Medical Center in Lehi, Utah.

OUR INJECTION TECHNIQUE
RADIESSE can treat marionette lines, smile lines, pre-jowl folds, chin wrinkles, and lines that form in the sides of the lips. RADIESSE is also approved to treat volume that is often lost with age in the hands to help them look smoother and more youthful. RADIESSE dermal injections are performed in a treatment room at Avanti Medical Center in around 30 – 60 minutes once you have completed the consultation. To start the procedure, you will be seated in a relaxed position while the injection sites are cleaned and marked. Many patients feel only mild discomfort during their treatment at the first prick, but if needed, a local anesthetic may be applied to the treatment sites. The dosage of RADIESSE, chosen at your consultation, will be placed in a fine syringe. The pre-marked injection sites will help the injector to carefully administer RADIESSE into the needed areas. After the procedure is done, a cold compress may be held to the treated areas to help alleviate swelling and bruising.
How much does RADIESSE cost?
The cost of RADIESSE will depend on the amount used to match your desired outcome. In your consult at our practice, your injector will discuss your concerns and goals, and then they can create your treatment plan. Then, they can discuss your potential costs.
How does RADIESSE compare to other fillers?
Fillers each have unique properties and formulas to help with different issues. Common filler ingredients are HA (hyaluronic acid), CaHa (calcium hydroxyapatite), poly-L-lactic acid, and polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA). RADIESSE is made with calcium-based microspheres, which are comparable to HA wrinkle fillers since both stimulate the natural production of collagen. During your consultation, your injector will review the various fillers and assess your skin’s volume, laxity, and tone to help you decide which one is correct for you.
Are RADIESSE injections painful?
Usually, patients don’t need numbing cream before their injection treatment. However, numbing cream can be applied to make you feel more comfortable. Most patients may have minor and short-lived discomfort during the actual injections.
What are the side effects of RADIESSE?
Injections of RADIESSE rarely produce severe side effects when done by an experienced injector, like the ones at Avanti Medical Center. During your consultation, tell your injector about your medical history and if you have any known allergies to avoid a reaction. Immediately following your injection, you may have mild redness, bruising, itching, or numbness. This is temporary and will generally be gone in 1 – 2 days.
What other procedures can I combine with RADIESSE?
Injections of RADIESSE may be performed with other injectable and nonsurgical treatments to deliver your ideal results. Some patients use fillers, like RADIESSE, with BOTOX® or another wrinkle relaxer to produce an overall younger-looking appearance. Talk to your injector when they are creating your treatment plan to consider other treatments that complement the results of RADIESSE dermal filler injections.
