RADIESSE® Dermal Filler Treatment in Charlotte

Medically reviewed by Richard Paul Greenberg, MD on 12/28/23

RADIESSE® is a Dermal Filler that can work to reduce signs of aging, fine lines and wrinkles, sagging skin, scars, and tired eyes. RADIESSE is special because of its ability to naturally stimulate the production of collagen under your skin so that the effects continue to last long after the procedure. RADIESSE also works immediately so the results are instant. Once injected, RADIESSE adds the volume and lift needed to diminish the signs of aging.

Radiesse can be used in areas, such as nasolabial folds (the creases that extend from the corner of your nose to the corner of your mouth). This filler is especially useful for sharpening and contouring the sweep of your jawline and the projection of your chin.  RADIESSE® is also used for correcting volume loss in the midface and enhancing the cheekbone. Your hands give away your age. Radiesse can be used to plump the hands making them appear more youthful. Horizontal lines in your neck that develop as you age also respond to Radiesse fillers.

Best of all, the natural results are clinically proven to last a year or more in many patients, which means more value from each treatment and long-lasting results.

What Are Cosmetic and Dermal Fillers?

Cosmetic and dermal fillers are soft tissue fillers that are injected into the skin at areas where you see texture issues, such as wrinkles and fine lines. Dermal fillers are safe and scientifically proven to reduce those pesky signs of aging. They work by restoring natural volume in your skin so that you can see a return of a healthy, youthful bounce. Lifting the skin like this reduces the appearance of wrinkles so you can enjoy smoother skin overall.

What is Radiesse?

What makes RADIESSE truly unique from other dermal fillers is the ability of the product to act as a scaffold under the skin, providing structure and stimulating your own natural collagen to grow. The best solution for erasing lines and folds is to replace lost structure with immediate volume, making RADIESSE a preferred option for facial rejuvenation. The production of natural collagen continues for months, which extends the effect of RADIESSE.

RADIESSE is the right dermal filler treatment for you if you’re looking for a solution to your wrinkles or signs of aging that can last for years to come. For those perhaps hesitant to turn to cosmetic injections, RADIESSE’s collagen stimulation abilities allow you to feel good about your skin’s natural health and glow. Another important factor to remember is that RADIESSE is a thicker filler, meaning it may not be recommended as a lip filler or tear troughs (dark circles under your eyes).

How Do Fillers Differ from Cosmetic Injectables Like Botox?

Dermal fillers and cosmetic injectables are similar in that they are both substances injected into the skin with a needle. The substances themselves differ, but all work to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, folds, and signs of aging. Botox stops muscle movement and reduces and prevents wrinkles.

Dermal fillers do what they sound like – they fill in the skin. Cosmetic injectables like Botox, on the other hand, actually relax the underlying muscles below the skin so muscle movement  cannot cause wrinkles. However, each type of filler and injectable differs. Your choice between them depends on the treatment area and goals for your skin. RADIESSE in particular is often the choice of those who want the longest-lasting results.

Comparing Radiesse to Other Fillers

RADIESSE is unique because of its collagen stimulation, but there are other dermal fillers that have different benefits or areas where they’re most effective. Below you can compare RADIESSE to other fillers that you may be considering for treatment.

Bellafill is a non-biodegradable filler that can last five years or more.  Many people often compare it to RADIESSE when choosing a treatment. The primary difference is that Bellafill may be permanent while Radiesse does dissolve over time. 

Belotero Balance is often referred to as a “finishing touch.” For people with thin skin, or with texture issues that are closer to the skin’s surface, Belotero Balance may be better than Radiesse for thin skin areas such as the tear troughs under your eyes. RADIESSE has a thicker consistency. 

Juvederm is recommended for fine line treatment, such as smile lines around the mouth. RADIESSE is often preferred for more significant problem areas such as deeper lines or wrinkles.

Similar to Juvederm, Restylane is best for moderate wrinkles. RADIESSE can treat issues as significant as hollow cheeks.

Versa is primarily unique because of the uniform appearance it creates. The injections are all of a similar spherical shape and create a smooth overall look. Versa may be right for you if aesthetic considerations are more important to you than underlying natural results like collagen production.

Steps to Getting Radiesse Treatment

Initial Consultation for Radiesse

If you think RADIESSE is the right dermal filler for you, our team will happily schedule a consultation so that you can talk through your options with our medical staff. This is the time for you to explain your goals with RADIESSE treatment, and the look you want to achieve.

Radiesse Treatment Planning

Treatment preparation instructions may depend on the injection site, but in general, you will be advised to avoid blood-thinning medications, alcohol, and strenuous activity in the days leading up to the procedure.

The Radiesse Procedure

RADIESSE treatment takes less than a half hour to conduct. Dr. Greenberg will expertly administer the injection, and you’ll be able to walk out of our Charlotte med spa with immediate, noticeable results and no downtime.

Radiesse Post-Treatment Care

In addition to avoiding any strenuous activity or exercise after the procedure, you should avoid putting pressure on the treatment area. Given that RADIESSE can treat a wide range of skin areas, this may mean sleeping on your back, using your hands carefully, or simply not touching your face for an instructed duration of time.


Two to three treatment sessions, spaced out with 4-6 weeks in between, is recommended for best results. You may also schedule annual follow-up sessions for upkeep of your appearance and to maintain a healthy collagen level.
