Are you looking for a dermal filler that can successfully treat your wrinkles, fine lines, and acne scars? Maybe you want facial recontouring without going to the extreme of having implants. With the many benefits of Radiesse, you can gain your desired results. Situated in Denver, CO, Aesthetic Surgery and Dermatology of Cherry Creek offer Radiesse treatments for most skin types and tones. Give us a call for more information on Radiesse and how you can benefit from it.

How Does Radiesse Work? 

Radiesse is the first and only FDA-approved CaHA (Calcium Hydroxylapatite) portfolio that shows immediate results and offers long-term improvement for your skin. What makes Radiesse such a unique injectable aesthetic treatment is Calcium Hydroxylapatite. Radiesse is a dermal filler used to smooth moderate to severe folds and wrinkles, such as nasolabial folds. This treatment can also be used to correct volume loss on the back of your hands. 

The two essential components in your skin that help to keep facial lines and wrinkles at bay are elastin and collagen. They contribute to your skin’s strength and elasticity. Certain factors, such as sun damage and aging, make it hard for these components to be reproduced in the body and can result in facial wrinkles and sagging. When you have this injectable treatment, it provides your skin with immediate improvement by stimulating the production of elastin and collagen. 

How Long Do the Results Last? 

Radiesse is a long-lasting dermal filler that allows you to recontour, volumize and lift the skin in the treated area. As collagen and elastin are produced in your skin, your skin becomes smoother and more toned. The results of this treatment can be seen immediately and last for more than one year. Seven months after your Radiesse filler treatment, we recommend you return for a touch-up treatment to maintain your results. 

Advantages Of Radiesse 

With so many dermal fillers on the market to choose from, making an informed decision is key to gaining your desired results. 

Allergy tests are normally conducted before undergoing an injectable treatment to determine if you have an allergic reaction to the treatment. We will ensure that you are a suitable candidate for this treatment. 

Radiesse treatments are quick and minimally invasive. This allows you to be able to have this treatment done even if you don’t have a lot of time. Recovery time is also short. After the treatment, you can continue with your day as normal.

While wrinkles and deep lines are early signs of aging, Radiesse can effectively treat all these effects. It is also beneficial for the treatment of acne scars and volume loss that may occur in your cheeks and midface. When these areas are filled, the cheek segments are lifted. This causes the deep nasolabial folds to be softened or even completely removed. 

A Radiesse filler is not just a regular filler. It can be used to recontour your jawline, cheeks, and nose and may be used as a non-surgical alternative to facial implants. Radiesse may assist with sunken cheeks, an irregular jawline, or a slight recontouring of your nose. 

One of the greatest benefits of this treatment is that there is virtually no downtime. While this treatment session is very quick, you can get back to work or exercise as normal. 

What Areas Can Radiesse Treat? 

A Radiesse filler treatment can be used to treat many areas. We can reduce the appearance of the following:

Smile Lines 

Deep smile lines are called nasolabial folds and can give your face an aged and tired expression. 

Corners of the Mouth 

Oral commissures are lines to describe the downturned appearance in the corners of the mouth. Radiesse can smooth out these lines, giving you a youthful glow.

Marionette Lines 

Marionette lines are the lines just under your mouth. We can help you ease the severity of these lines.


This treatment is a great cheek filler because it contains CaHA, which can add volume to the cheeks. 

Pre-jowl Folds 

Pre-jowl folds appear on either side of the chin and can give the chin area a hollow appearance as volume loss causes the skin to sag along the jawline, creating folds. 

Chin Wrinkles 

Chin wrinkles are fine lines across your chin. These lines can distract from your smile. Radiesse Fillers can change that!


Visible veins and tendons contribute to the signs of aging. Radiesse restores volume at the back of your hands. 


This dermal filler may be used to treat the loss of jawline contour. 

What is the Recovery Period Like?

While most activities in your daily routine may be resumed, strenuous exercise and heat or direct sun exposure should be avoided for at least 24 hours after your dermal filler treatment and until redness and swelling have resolved. 

Sleeping on your back for a few nights following your treatment is also recommended since you should not put any pressure on the treated area. We also recommend using a topical cream to soothe the skin of the treated area. The consumption of alcohol should be avoided for 24 hours.
