The Difference With RADIESSE® Volumizing Filler

Once you discover what makes RADIESSE® Volumizing Filler different, you’ll agree that it makes an excellent choice for facial renewal. RADIESSE® Volumizing Filler contains calcium-based microspheres, that once injected, act as a scaffold under the skin to provide lift. Over time, these microspheres begin to stimulate your own natural collagen to grow so results are both immediate and long-lasting.1 Results are clinically proven to last a year or more in many patients. 2,3 RADIESSE® Volumizing Filler can help you look younger, longer… naturally.

WHAT TO EXPECT

DURING AND IMMEDIATELY AFTER YOUR FILLER TREATMENT

Filler is injected into the skin to soften wrinkles or folds by adding volume.

Local numbing medication may be used to maximize your comfort during the procedure.

Most patients report a mild discomfort typically associated with needle injections.

To ensure an even correction, the injector will massage the area treated which may cause a temporary amount of redness to your skin.

Bruising at the site of injection is a commonly reported side effect. To minimize bruising, inform your provider if you use blood thinners such as ibuprofen, aspirin or herbal preparations prior to your procedure.

A temporary amount of minimal to moderate swelling can be expected following treatment. This should dissipate following injection.  Please contact your health care practitioner if swelling persists.

It is normal to experience some tenderness at the treatment site for a few days.

POST TREATMENT CARE

Application of an ice pack or cold compress to the injection area after treatment may help reduce swelling. If swelling or redness persists, please contact your health care provider.

It is normal to feel a “firmness” in your injection area for the first few days after treatment. Over time, the area will soften, leaving you with a natural looking result.

Many patients immediately return to their normal routine/activities. However, you should check with your health care provider for his/her recommendation.

Makeup may be applied shortly after treatment if no complications are present, and using gentle application. Check with your health care provider for further recommendations.

The injection area may be gently washed a few hours after treatment. Avoid aggressive scrubbing or rubbing.

Sunbathing or excessive UV exposure should be avoided until the redness or swelling has subsided.

Immediately report any worsening, persistent symptoms or side effects to your heath care provider.
