RADIESSE is a new and exciting dermal filler used in the treatment of deep lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth. The smile lines, marionette lines, and nasolabial folds can all be effectively treated with RADIESSE.
RADIESSE is comprised of microspheres of calcium hydroxylapatite (a substance naturally found in the body) suspended in a gel-like formula. As calcium hydroxylapatite occurs naturally in the body, there is very little chance of an allergic reaction, making this a very safe and popular choice among plastic surgeons.
For the first three months after RADIESSE treatment is administered, it acts as a dermal filler, plumping up the skin and diminishing wrinkles. Then, the RADIESSE microspheres begin to stimulate the body’s own ability to produce collagen, causing new tissue development for up to two years. This unique quality of RADIESSE makes it an optimum choice for those patients seeking a long-term result in anti-aging treatment.
At Scottsdale Skin Institute we are known for administering among the best RADIESSE Scottsdale has to offer, with delighted patients traveling from all over the state to get top-notch treatment. We look forward to meeting you and helping you achieve your desired cosmetic goals.

Results & Recovery
RADIESSE treatment is a simple non-invasive cosmetic procedure. Typically your doctor will apply a topical numbing cream to avoid any discomfort at the injection site. The procedure usually takes anywhere from 10 to 20 minutes, depending upon the extent of the treatment. Your doctor will choose one or more injection points for each area being treated. The RADIESSE cosmetic filler is then injected into the skin, under the epidermis.
Like with any dermal filler you may experience some bruising and swelling at the injection sites, but it is only temporary and should subside within 48 hours. Gentle cold compresses are recommended to help bring down any swelling.
While patients will see immediate results, the final product is apparent within one week of the treatment after all traces of potential swelling are gone. Results can last up to two years.
