Radiesse Facial Filler at Siti Med Spa in San Diego

Everyone needs a little help to look their absolute best. When it comes to improving the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and facial folds, dermal fillers are a great option. At Siti Med Spa, we offer a variety of face fillers to transform you from drab to fab. If you’re looking for instant results that keep improving over time, Radiesse might be the right treatment for you.

What is Radiesse?

Radiesse is a dermal filler used to smooth out facial wrinkles, restore lost volume, and stimulate the production of your own natural collagen. In a series of microinjections, Radiesse is carefully placed beneath the skin, providing results you can see immediately – and a plump fullness that can last for a year a more.

How does Radiesse work?

Radiesse is comprised of tiny calcium-based microspheres, called Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHA), a natural material similar to the minerals found in human bones. The CaHA microspheres are suspended in a water-based gel, which is then injected beneath the skin. While the effects of Radiesse facial filler are instantly visible, the CaHA triggers your own natural collagen production. This means that even after your body absorbs the gel, you’ll continue to reap the benefits, with naturally smooth, firm, wrinkle-free skin.

What can Radiesse be used for?

Radiesse can improve the appearance of moderate to severe wrinkles in several areas of your face, including:

Smile lines

  • Also known as nasolabial folds, these deep creases run from the side of your nose to the corner of your mouth.

Marionette lines

  • The long vertical lines that extend from the corner of your mouth to your chin are often caused by a reduction in the amount of natural collagen your body produces.

Pre-jowl folds

  • In advanced age, the sides of the chin are prone to sagging, creating a hollow, wilted appearance in the cheek and chin area.

Chin wrinkles

  • Horizontal lines in the chin appear gradually over time and detract from the beauty of your smile.

Radiesse helps to rejuvenate the face and restore its youthful contours. Radiesse is also FDA-approved for hand rejuvenation treatment, which helps to eliminate wrinkles, reduce the visibility of tendons and blood vessels, and restore lost volume in the backs of your hands.

How long does Radiesse last?

Results from Radiesse treatment are visible almost immediately after your injections are complete. Because it stimulates your own natural collagen production, the effects can last long after the substance has been metabolized by your body. Many patients experience the lasting results of Radiesse for up to a year or more.

What can I expect from a Radiesse treatment?

Radiesse treatment is a quick, simple procedure, performed in our San Diego office, usually in under an hour. The injections are relatively painless; many patients report feeling a pinching sensation combined with slight pressure. At Siti Med Spa, patient comfort is a priority, and we’ll do everything we can to minimize your discomfort.

There’s also no downtime after a Radiesse treatment, though you may experience some minor swelling or bruising.
