Radiesse® in Melbourne, FL
Radiesse® is a minimally invasive dermal filler alternative to plastic surgery that revolumizes and recontours the face, as well as diminishes the appearance of folds while boosting collagen production. Residents of Melbourne, Indialantic, Viera, Brevard County, the beaches, and surrounding areas in Central Florida may learn more about Radiesse® treatments and how they can refresh their appearance at Dermatology + Plastic Surgery, led by board-certified dermatologist Anita Saluja, MD and double board-certified plastic surgeon Rebecca Novo, MD.
How does Radiesse® work?
Radiesse® is an injectable filler that diminishes the appearance of moderate to severe wrinkles, folds, and creases while also triggering collagen production, which improves volume, fullness, and elasticity by nourishing the skin at the cellular level.
Radiesse for men and women is ideal for flattened cheeks, smile lines, corners of mouth, marionette lines, and the jowl area.
What makes Radiesse® unique?
Radiesse® is a highly valued treatment that provides specific advantages over other dermal filler injections. Because it works by triggering natural collagen production, the skin continues to improve over time. Radiesse® results last for up to 18 months. Some of the unique benefits of Radiesse® include:
- Special gel formula containing calcium hydroxylapatite, a natural ingredient found in healthy skin
- Very low risk of allergic reaction
- Minimal downtime or recovery period
- Immediate results followed by gradual improvements over the course of three months
- Results that last up to eighteen months
How Is Radiesse® Administered?
After applying a topical numbing agent to the treatment areas to alleviate possible discomfort, Radiesse® is injected directly into each target area using a very fine-gauge needle. Treatment takes between 15 minutes to an hour, depending on the topical anesthetic time and number of injections needed. Results will be immediately noticeable after the treatment, but your skin will continue to improve. Initial bruising and swelling up to one to two weeks may occur post-treatment.
Who can get the most benefit from a Radiesse® treatment?
Radiesse® is a safe and effective FDA-approved treatment for healthy adults. However, Radiesse® may not be suitable for everyone. At your initial consultation, we will evaluate your medical history, age, lifestyle and the condition of your skin to determine if you can benefit from this treatment. Radiesse® is designed specifically to treat the appearance of lines, wrinkles, creases, and folds, as well as augmenting volume to fill in sunken contours in the facial area. Radiesse® is also used to treat facial lipoatrophy, a condition that causes loss of fat and volume in the face.
Pre-treatment preparation for Radiesse®
Radiesse® is made with all-natural ingredients, so adverse reactions to the gel formula are rare, but prior to treatment, we will want to know if you have a history of allergies, skin reactions, or any other medical conditions. You may have to postpone treatments if any infection, inflammation or other irritation appears on the skin. You may need to temporarily suspend certain blood thinning medications or supplements one week prior to treatment.

The cost of Radiesse® depends on how many injections you require. Cost estimates are $600 to $1200. Health insurance does usually not cover dermal fillers such as Radiesse®, but Dermatology + Plastic Surgery accepts various forms of payment to make payments more convenient for our patients.
Radiesse for marionette lines – Radiesse can be used like normal dermal fillers for marionette lines with the added benefit of increasing collagen in the region where it’s used.

Radiesse for hand rejuvenation – Radiesse is among few other FDA-approved formulas for injection into the back of the hands for volume loss.

Radiesse for orange peel skin – Orange peel skin occurs when there’s a lack of structure supporting the hair follicles we call pores. Radiesse provides both helpful physical volume as well as more collagen to the area to help it appear smoother.

Radiesse for cheek bone – Increase cheek bone definition with soft dermal fillers like Radiesse or add volume in areas that are missing it.

Radiesse for hand rejuvenation – Volume loss in the hands can be an obvious and embarrassing indicator of your age. With Radiesse, you can fill this area naturally with a collagen-building formula.

Radiesse for jaw asymmetry – Abnormal jaw contours can be balanced out with precise treatment of Radiesse or other dermal fillers.

Radiesse for temples – Forehead contours can be asymmetrical, but a dermal filler like Radiesse placed in just the right spot can make it seem even and balanced.
Radiesse for chicken pox scars – If you’ve got facial scarring due to chicken pox, Radiesse might be ideal to help fill in areas of depressed tissue while promoting more collagen as part of the healing process.
