What is Radiesse?
Today, there are multiple injectable treatments available to help you achieve a more youthful, refreshed appearance. Of these, Radiesse injectable wrinkle treatments offered by our Philadelphia, PA team is wonderful for addressing mild to moderate wrinkles and lines on the face, as well as for fixing volume loss in the hands. Women and men who don't have time for frequent appointments appreciate the lasting results (over a year in many cases) of Radiesse. With microspheres of calcium hydroxyapatite in the form of a flexible gel, Radiesse fills and smoothes the appearance of your face without the time and expense of surgery. This formula is approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) to safely and effectively add volume to different areas of your face and hands. It may also be paired with other injectable treatments (wrinkle fillers and relaxers) in a unique procedure to rejuvenate your appearance.
Who is an Ideal Candidate for radiesse?
Women and men who are in good overall health and wish to correct their mild to moderate wrinkles and lines are ideal patients for Radiesse treatments. These injections can improve marionette lines, smile lines, chin wrinkles, pre-jowl folds, and fine lines that form in the edges of the lips. This formula is also designed to treat volume that is often lost with age in the hands to help them appear fuller and more youthful. You shouldn't receive this treatment if you have an allergy to lidocaine or other ingredients that are present in Radiesse. Be sure to let your injector know if you have any allergies (whether mild or severe) or medical conditions. If you are pregnant, breastfeeding, might be pregnant, or are trying to conceive in the next several years, you shouldn't receive Radiesse injections.
"I got Kybella and Botox. Nurse Siddiqi was the injectionist and she was super friendly, professional and helpful. The results of both injections were great. The Botox was very natural and removed my forehead wrinkles almost completely. It even seemed to plump up the skin so that the deep creases I have were decreased. I had four vials of Kybella and my friends have all commented on how noticeable the results are. Ms. Siddiqi listened to my concerns about target areas and tailored the injections to decrease the fat in those areas. I’m very happy with the results. Also, Ms. Siddiqi is very gentle with the injections. I definitely recommend her services!"- V.B. / Yelp / May 19, 2021
"Judy is the best! She is extremely knowledgable and suggests new treatments that will improve my skin without being pushy. She is so also a very kind person and I cannot recommend her enough!"- M.L. / Yelp / May 07, 2021
"Just had my second frax treatment with Judy. I always look forward to coming to B&B Lab, the trip out of state is absolutely worth it. Judy sat with me, addressed my concerns and made sure I was comfortable the whole time. Can’t wait to come back!"- S.R. / Google / Apr 17, 2021
"A friend gifted me a Hydrafacial with Judy for my birthday and I loved it! She even emailed me a few days later to find out how my skin was doing. I look forward to coming in soon and purchasing some skin care to get through these summer months."- C.G. / Google / Mar 30, 2021
"I’ve been seeing Judy for a few months now and wow! I never knew my skin could look so good. I started by getting a hydrafacial and have since been taking the most awesome advice from Judy. I thought the dark marks on my face would never go away. Just did IPL treatment and it got so much lighter! Highly recommend Judy and the establishment."- S.S. / Google / Mar 29, 2021
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.
