Radiesse® | Falls Church VA & Washington DC
What is Radiesse®?
Radiesse® is a synthetic injectable filler that has been approved by the FDA to reduce moderate to severe wrinkles, folds, and creases around the nose and mouth by stimulating the natural production of collagen in the skin.
This product is made of microspheres composed of calcium hydroxylapatite within a water-based gel and is made from minerals similar to what makes up our bones. Radiesse® can be injected directly into the skin with no need for pre-testing.
Radiesse® is most effective in reducing the appearance of smile lines, nasolabial folds, marionette lines and other wrinkles around the nose and mouth. The results of this procedure are visible immediately after the injection and can last for up to a year or even longer. With continued treatment, patients will require fewer and fewer injections.

The Radiesse® Procedure
Before a patient is given Radiesse® filler at our office location in Falls Church VA, the treatment area is first cleaned. Next, Radiesse® injections are given with a fine needle, and the procedure typically only takes 15 minutes. There is minimal downtime afterwards, with most patients returning to normal activities right away.
This filler is FDA-approved for combination with the anesthetic lidocaine, which makes injections less painful. On average, only 1 or 2 injections are needed to achieve the full benefits.
Results are visible immediately after the injection and can last up to a year. However, results are temporary, so treatments must be repeated to sustain them. Regular touch up treatments can help to prolong the effects.
