What is Radiesse?
These days, there are many injectable dermal fillers on the market for you to consider to get a more youthful, refreshed appearance. Dr. Adam Bodian offers the RADIESSE dermal filler as a wonderful option to treat mild to moderate wrinkles and lines throughout the face, and for fixing age-related volume loss in the hands. Women and men who don't have time for frequent appointments appreciate the lasting results (1 – 2 years) of RADIESSE. Using calcium hydroxyapatite microspheres in a water-based gel, this injectable plumps and smoothes the appearance of your skin as a minimally invasive treatment. RADIESSE is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to safely volumize your facial features. It may be used in tandem with other injectables (wrinkle relaxers and fillers) for a unique procedure plan that restores your appearance. Look younger and boost your self-image with RADIESSE injectable wrinkle treatments at Bodian Dermatology in Great Neck, NY.
Should I Get RADIESSE?
Men and women who are in good health and want to correct their mild to moderate facial lines and wrinkles are the best patients for a RADIESSE injectable treatment. It can treat marionette lines, smile lines, pre-jowl folds, chin wrinkles, and lines that form in the edges of the lips. RADIESSE is also designed to address volume that is often lost with age in the hands to help them appear fuller and younger-looking. You shouldn't have this treatment if you are allergic to lidocaine or any ingredients in RADIESSE. Be sure to talk to Dr. Bodian if you have any allergies (severe or not) and if you have a history of any bleeding disorders. If you are pregnant, breastfeeding, may be pregnant, or are considering pregnancy in the next 1 – 2 years, you shouldn't get RADIESSE injections.

Our Injection Technique
RADIESSE wrinkle injections are performed in a treatment room at Bodian Dermatology in around 30 – 60 minutes once you have completed your consultation. First, you will sit comfortably as the injection sites are cleaned and marked. Most patients feel only mild discomfort during the procedure at the initial prick. The dosage of RADIESSE, determined during your consultation, will be prepared in a fine syringe. The pre-marked injection sites will guide the injector to carefully administer RADIESSE into the needed areas. As soon as the procedure is done, a compress can be held to the treated areas to minimize swelling and bruising.
What to Expect After Injections
Following your treatment, you may have mild bruising, redness, and swelling. This is common and should only last for about a week. These side effects may be concealed with cosmetics. If the side effects last longer or seem excessive, please contact Bodian Dermatology. Many patients have some results immediately with final results developing in a month or so. Your face should appear younger, softer, and more radiant. RADIESSE tends to last longer compared to some of the other fillers — about 1 – 2 years. You should talk to Dr. Adam Bodian at your consultation about when to schedule your next treatment to touch up your results.
How does RADIESSE compare to other fillers?
Fillers all have unique properties and formulas to address various concerns. Common ingredients in fillers are HA (hyaluronic acid), calcium hydroxyapatite (CaHa), poly-L-lactic acid, and polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA). RADIESSE is composed of calcium-based microspheres, which are comparable to hyaluronic acid wrinkle fillers in the way it helps to increase collagen production. In your initial consultation, we will review the various choices and evaluate your skin's volume, laxity, and tone to determine which one matches your needs.
Are RADIESSE injections painful?
Generally, patients don't need any form of numbing before their injections. However, numbing cream can be provided to make you feel more comfortable. New patients feel slight discomfort as the needle goes in.
What are the side effects of RADIESSE?
Treatments with RADIESSE rarely produce severe side effects if performed by a skilled injector, like the ones at Bodian Dermatology. During your consultation, tell your injector about your medical history and any known allergies to avoid a reaction. Right after your treatment, you might develop mild redness, bruising, numbness, or itching. These side effects are temporary and should disappear within a day or two.
