Radiesse® Injections in San Diego
Developed with safety, durability, and longevity in mind, Radiesse is a dermal filler made with very tiny, smooth calcium hydoxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres. These create a scaffolding effect for which your own body’s collagen grows, producing a desired long-term effect.

Who is a candidate for Radiesse®?
You may be a candidate for Radiesse® injections if you have lines or creases between the eyebrows and on the upper lip that you wish to diminish, or if you have deep nasolabial folds (the line between the nose and the corner of your mouth). Radiesse® may also be recommended if you have depressions in the skin on your face or blemishes, like acne scars.Since 1988, more than 30,000 patients have had safe, successful procedures at La Jolla Cosmetic Surgery Centre.
Where on the face can Radiesse be used?
Radiesse is available for use in contouring nasolabial folds, marionette lines, cheek augmentation, non-surgical rhinoplasty, jaw line and chin augmentation. Radiesse® can dramatically minimize lines and creases and restore vitality. Additionally, Radiesse® will fill depressed areas and blemishes, such as acne scars.
Do Radiesse® injections hurt?
A topical anesthetic or an injection of numbing medicine may be used, if desired, to minimize discomfort.

Can I go out in public after Radiesse injections?
There may be some mild swelling after the procedure and typically disappears within 24 hours. Using ice will help to decrease this. Most patients look normal with make-up within one hour.
Occasionally, mild bruising may be seen or small dots may appear at the locations where the injections occurred.
