RADIESSE® is an FDA-approved injectable treatment for the correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds. RADIESSE has also been recently approved for injection into the hands to smooth wrinkles.
Dr. Dormer is a certified injector of RADIESSE for face and hands.
How does RADIESSE work?
RADIESSE is made of Calcium Hydroxyapatite (CaHA) microspheres that are suspended in an aqueous gel. Once injected, RADIESSE provides immediate volume and correction but continues to work by stimulating the body to produce it's own natural collagen. 1
Over time, RADIESSE is absorbed into surrounding tissues and the body metabolizes the Calcium Hydroxyapatite microspheres, leaving behind your own natural collagen.
Results are subtle and immediate, leaving you looking natural and refreshed.*
How long does RADIESSE last?
Just one treatment of RADIESSE has been clinically proven to last one year or longer in most patients. 2,3
Who should not use RADIESSE?
To find out if RADIESSE is a good treatment option for you, schedule a consultation with your doctor.

What is the most important information I should know about RADIESSE?

The microspheres in RADIESSE can be seen in X-rays and CT Scans. It is very important that you tell your health care provider that you have had RADIESSE injected into your face.

For approximately 24 hours after treatment:
- Avoid significant movement or massage of the treated area.
- Do not apply makeup.
- Avoid extensive sun or heat exposure.
What should I tell my doctor before being treated with RADIESSE?
Tell your health care provider if you are taking blood thinners or medicines that can interfere with the clotting of blood, such as aspirin or warfarin. These medicines might make it more likely that you have bruising or bleeding at the injection site
What are the most common adverse events with RADIESSE?
The most common adverse events include bruising, redness, swelling, pain, tenderness and itching. These side effects generally last for a short time and are mild in nature.
These are not all of the possible side effects with RADIESSE. Tell your health care provider about any side effects that bother you or do not go away.
