These days, there are several injectable fillers on the market for you to choose from for facial rejuvenation. The Radiesse dermal filler offered by GLO Laser & Med Spa is great for mild to moderate lines and wrinkles throughout the face and for reversing age-related volume loss in the hands. Patients who might not have a lot of time for repeat touch-ups prefer the long-lasting results (1 – 2 years) of Radiesse. Using calcium hydroxyapatite microspheres in a water-based gel, this injectable plumps and softens the look of your skin with a minimally invasive treatment. Radiesse has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to effectively and safely contour your facial features. It can be used in tandem with other injectables (wrinkle relaxers and fillers) for a personalized procedure plan that restores your skin. Look younger and boost your confidence with Radiesse dermal fillers at GLO Laser & Med Spa in Houston, TX.
Adults who are in good health and concerned about mild to moderate lines and wrinkles are the best candidates for Radiesse injectable treatments. This procedure can address smile lines, marionette lines, pre-jowl folds, chin wrinkles, and lines around the sides of the mouth. Radiesse is also approved to correct age-related volume loss in the hands to help them look smoother and younger-looking. You should not have this injection if you are allergic to lidocaine or any ingredients in the product. Make sure to tell the professional team at GLO Laser & Med Spa about any allergies (severe or not) and if you have a history of any bleeding disorders. If you are breastfeeding, pregnant, may be pregnant, or are considering pregnancy within 1 – 2 years, you should not use Radiesse treatments.

Radiesse dermal injections take place in one of the treatment rooms at GLO Laser & Med Spa in about 30 – 60 minutes after the consultation. To begin the treatment, you will sit comfortably while the areas of injection are cleaned and marked. Most patients feel mild discomfort during their treatment at the initial prick, but if requested, a numbing cream can be used on the injection sites. The dosage of Radiesse, chosen at your personalized treatment planning session, will be prepared in an ultra-fine syringe. The marked injection sites will help guide the injector to carefully administer Radiesse into the face. Once the procedure is finished, a cold compress may be applied to help minimize swelling and bruising.
What to Expect
After your Radiesse treatment, you may see slight swelling, redness, and bruising. This is common and should only last for about 5 – 10 days. These side effects can usually be covered with makeup. If the side effects last longer or seem excessive, please do not hesitate to call the staff at GLO Laser & Med Spa. Most patients see some results right away with better results developing over time. Your face should appear younger, softer, and more radiant. Radiesse tends to last longer than some of the other fillers — up to 1 – 2 years. You should talk to our team during your consultation about when to schedule your next treatment to maintain your results.
