"Highly recommend! The service was excellent. Jennifer Romania was super friendly, personable, and accommodating, and she took the time to listen to my needs/concerns. I will certainly be back!"- M.B. / Google / Jun 17, 2022
"I had a filler treatment done to enhance and contour the masculine features of my face and light Botox where fine lines were starting. This was a new experience for me so I was a little nervous, but as soon as I was sitting in the room consulting with Naomi I was very relaxed. She is a very professional and confident nurse injector. I was happy with results immediately. I am at the 48 hour mark since and I am absolutely obsessed. The results aren’t dramatic but I can see a night and day difference which is exactly what I wanted. I feel very good about myself and am looking forward to taking selfies this summer"- M.F. / Google / Jun 14, 2022
"I scheduled two minor procedures (a little Botox and a little filler) with Anya Bado and it was a fantastic experience. She was knowledgeable, explained everything in detail, the procedures were easy and painless AND the best part, the results. I would highly recommend this facility and Anya for their great service, professionalism and ease in navigating these sort of procedures. A 10/10!!!"- E.O. / Google / Jun 09, 2022

"I booked a series of laser treatments in hopes of minimizing my rosacea and I can already tell that my redness has improved after my first visit. I am especially pleased with Robby Nelson, the medical provider who performed the treatment.

How does radiesse work?
Radiesse wrinkle injections are performed in a treatment room at Body+Beauty Lab in around 30 – 60 minutes, typically following your one-on-one consultation. To start the procedure, you will lay in a relaxed position as the injection sites are cleaned and marked. Many patients feel tolerable discomfort throughout the duration, but a local anesthetic may be applied to the treatment sites if desired. The Radiesse dose, determined during your consultation, will be placed in a fine needle, and the pre-marked sites will help your injector to carefully administer the product into the needed areas. As soon as your treatment is complete, a compress will be held to the areas to reduce bruising and swelling.
What can I Expect after radiesse?
Following your Radiesse injection, you may have mild bruising, redness, and swelling. This is normal and should only last for around a week. These side effects may typically be camouflaged with cosmetics. If the bruising, swelling, or redness lasts longer than ten days, or if you are concerned, please contact Body+Beauty Lab. Many clients notice visible improvements mere minutes after the treatment with final results emerging after a month or so. Following your treatment, your face will look softer, younger, and lifted. Radiesse typically lasts longer compared to other dermal fillers — about 1 – 2 years. During your appointment, you can ask your medical injector about the right time to touch-up your results.
How much does Radiesse cost?
The cost of your Radiesse treatment will depend on the amount of product used to reach your goals. During your consult at Body+Beauty Lab, your injector will listen to your needs and wants so they can develop your totally personalized treatment plan. After this, we will be able to estimate your costs and discuss payment methods.

How does Radiesse compare to other fillers?
Injectable wrinkle fillers each have different properties and formulas to help with various issues. Common filler materials include HA (hyaluronic acid), CaHa (calcium hydroxyapatite), poly-L-lactic acid, and PMMA (polymethylmethacrylate). Radiesse uses calcium-based microspheres, which are similar to HA wrinkle fillers since both prompt collagen production in your body. At your appointment, we will explain the different dermal filler brands and assess your skin's volume, laxity, and tone to determine which product will address your unique concerns.
Are Radiesse injections painful?
Usually, patients don't need numbing cream before their treatments. However, numbing cream can be applied to relieve any concerns you may have related to pain. New clients report feeling brief and minor discomfort as the needle goes in.
What are the side effects of Radiesse?
Radiesse injections carry a low risk of serious side effects if performed by a skilled injector, like those on our team at Body+Beauty Lab. During your consultation, talk to your injector about the medications you take and any allergies you have to avoid potential problems. Following your injection, you might develop mild bruising, redness, itching, or numbness. These side effects are temporary and should disappear after a few days.
What other procedures can I combine with Radiesse?
Radiesse can be combined with other injectable and nonsurgical treatments to produce optimal results. Some patients receive fillers with BOTOX or another wrinkle relaxer to give them a totally refreshed appearance. Speak to your injector when they're creating your treatment plan and ask about treatments that complement Radiesse.
