What is Radiesse?

Today, there are multiple injectable dermal fillers on the market for facial rejuvenation. The RADIESSE injectable wrinkle treatment offered by board-certified family physician Benjamin Pinner, MD is wonderful for mild and moderate lines and wrinkles throughout the face, and for improving age-related volume loss in the hands. Women and men who might not have time for repeat appointments prefer the lasting results (1 – 2 years) of RADIESSE. With microspheres of calcium hydroxyapatite in a water-based gel, RADIESSE plumps and softens the appearance of your face without an invasive surgery. At Peak Aesthetics, our team can pair RADIESSE with other injectables (wrinkle relaxers and fillers) as part of a personalized procedure plan to refresh your appearance. Contact our office in Peak, SC to schedule an appointment.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does RADIESSE cost?
The cost of RADIESSE is dependent on the number of syringes to match your desired outcome. In your initial consultation at Peak Aesthetics, Dr. Pinner will discuss your concerns and goals, then he can create your custom treatment plan, as well as discuss your costs and payment options.

How does RADIESSE compare to other fillers?
Fillers each have different formulas and properties to fit a wide range of concerns. Common ingredients in fillers are hyaluronic acid (HA), calcium hydroxyapatite (CaHa), poly-L-lactic acid, and PMMA (polymethylmethacrylate). RADIESSE is composed of calcium-based microspheres, which are comparable to HA injectable fillers due to the natural ability to increase collagen production in your body.

Are RADIESSE injections painful?
Generally, patients don't need numbing cream before their injection treatment. However, numbing cream can be applied to make you feel more comfortable. Many patients may feel minor and short-lived discomfort as the needle goes in.

What other procedures can I combine with RADIESSE?
Injections of RADIESSE can be done in combination with other injectable treatments to help achieve your optimal results. Many patients inject wrinkle fillers, like RADIESSE, with BOTOX® or another wrinkle relaxer to produce a refreshed appearance.
