At SpaMedica, Radiesse treatments cost $750 per syringe.
Radiesse injectable dermal filler treatments boast an impressively short recovery time. In fact, patients will be able to return to their normal routine almost immediately after the procedure, as little to no downtime is required. However, please note that exercise should be postponed for the first 24-48 hours.
The length of the procedure depends on the desired outcome of the patient. However, on average, Radiesse treatments take 15-30 minutes to complete.
A Radiesse treatment refers to a dermal filler that plumps and fills up the skin. Unlike hyaluronic gels, like Juvederm and Restylane, Radiesse is not a gel, but a particulate stimulant. Radiesse is made up of tiny, microscopic particles of calcium hydroxyapatite dissolved in a suspension. These little particles act as a “biological stimulant” for your body to make collagen around the particles, and this collagen plumps up and smooths wrinkles.
The procedure is ideal for those who experience deflation and sagging in the facial area. By providing collagen and structural volume to the sunken regions of the space, a Radiesse treatment restores the skin’s elasticity, smoothes wrinkle lines, and instills a glowing, youthful appearance.
SpaMedica has some of the most experienced physician and nurse injectors, as well as the widest selection of dermal fillers in Canada. Each dermal filler injection treatment is customized to include the best possible combination of fillers that will give the most effective and long-lasting contour and shaping results. At the time of your consultation, your consult coordinator will review the best combination of dermal fillers to provide the results you are looking for.
SpaMedica is Canada’s largest, oldest, and most respected private cosmetic laser center. Why are there so many dermal fillers available? The answer is simple: using only one dermal filler may not give the best results. Superior soft tissue filler results are often only achieved by the customized combination of two or more of the dermal fillers products that work in different, yet synergistic and summative ways to achieve the best results, including:
● Bellafill (Artecoll)
There is no particular age restriction for Radiesse treatment, and there is no specific trait that defines a “good” candidate. Fundamentally, good candidates are patients who would like to increase their facial volume by undergoing a minimally invasive procedure. However, as is the case with most cosmetic procedures, good candidates should have logical expectations concerning the risks and benefits of the procedure.
A Radiesse procedure is known for reducing the signs of aging by making lines and wrinkles appear smooth and soft.
The dermal filler adds natural-looking volume to sagging areas.
Restore Facial Symmetry
Radiesse treatment can restore balance to the face, thereby instilling a more natural look.
Ensure Youthful Appearance
By treating folds, smooth wrinkles, and creating facial asymmetry, a Radiesse treatment provides patients with a more youthful appearance.
Like all procedures, Radiesse treatment comes with the risk of potential complications. Dr. Mulholland has been performing these treatments for over 20 years and, after this many surgeries, the risk of a significant complication is extremely low. Although Dr. Mulholland has not seen most of the risks listed below, these Radiesse risks have been reported:
In most cases, redness is resolved a day or two after the treatment.
Facial skin is particularly tender after the treatment.
While it is likely that patients will experience some itchiness after the surgery, most discomfort is diminished after the first week.
Bruising is typically imperceptible, but can occasionally be visible after the surgery.
Led by the incomparable Dr. Mulholland, the skilled and experienced doctors at SpaMedica combine technical proficiency and unparalleled precision with an individualized approach that puts the patient first. By using innovative techniques and state-of-the-art equipment, the SpaMedica team is capable of producing incredible results while also reducing the risk of complications.
At SpaMedica, Radiesse treatment is performed under local anesthesia. During the procedure, Dr. Mulholland injects the dermal filler beneath the top layer of the skin on the patient’s face. This ensures that the skin absorbs the fluid and integrates it into the chemical compounds that already exist there.
Prior to your treatment, Dr. Mulholland and his team will review your medications and medical history. To minimize the risk of excessive bruising, please ensure that you have not taken any aspirin or non-steroidal anti-inflammatories several weeks prior to the procedure.
Immediately after the treatment, patients can expect restored facial volume, minimized facial folds, and smoother skin. Following your Radiesse treatment, Dr. Mulholland and his team in Toronto will recommend a postoperative care regime. This regime will include instructions about the importance of avoiding physical activity, abstaining from alcohol and smoking, and minimizing exposure to the sun.
Immediately After the Treatment: Patients should still avoid applying pressure to the treatment area and making extreme facial expressions for at least 24 hours after the treatment.
1 Day After the Treatment: Discomfort, itchiness, tenderness, and swelling at the injection site should subside.
2 Days After the Treatment: Patients can resume doing physical activities.
14-16 Months After the Treatment: The effects of the Radiesse treatment have subsided, and patients are advised to schedule another appointment.
After the procedure, patients can expect a bit of discomfort, tenderness, and swelling at the injection site. However, these sensations can easily be managed with over-the-counter pain medication.
The effects of a Radiesse treatment generally subside after 14-16 months. At that point, patients are advised to schedule another appointment.
