What is Radiesse?
Dermatologist, Dr. Matthew Barrows, offers the latest line of injectable fillers for patients seeking a younger looking complexion. Radiesse is an FDA approved facial gel filler used as a wrinkle treatment. Unlike other gel injectables, Radiesse is a stronger filler that allows the facial features to naturally “lift” once injected. In addition, Radiesse helps to stimulate the natural production of collagen within the face, which is a necessary protein that diminishes with age, therefore, Radiesse helps to combat the effects of aging by replenishing this valuable substance. By adding volume beneath the skin, Radiesse creates a smoother, radiant, and more youthful appearance by lifting areas of the face, such as the cheeks. Patients in the Dallas, Rockwall, Allen, McKinney, and Gainesville areas may benefit from Radiesse and enjoy their results for up to a full year.
Radiesse is for patients who suffer from excessive wrinkles, lines and folds or would like a more youthful appearance. Radiesse sets itself apart from other fillers, such as Restylane and Juvederm, because it seeks to promote collagen growth and generally lasts longer. It is a better filler solution for patients seeking a longer lasting result.

Before administering a Radiesse treatment, the dermatologist will consult with you to determine the amount of filler that is going to be injected. Radiesse is injected through a fine needle and will be massaged into the areas that need additional volume. To ensure that the injection goes where intended, the dermatologist will mark the injection sites with a washable pen. A typical treatment session can last up to an hour, as we will apply a numbing agent first to help control any discomfort during the injection.
What to Expect
After a Radiesse injection treatment, the results are visible almost immediately. There will be some swelling and tenderness around the injection sites, but this goes away within a few hours after treatment. Radiesse will continue to improve the skin by helping boost collagen growth, which is healthy for vibrant, smooth, youthful looking skin. Unlike some of our other filler products, Radiesse generally lasts a bit longer, sometimes up to 12-18 months for some patients.
