Hyperdilute Radiesse Q&A Scottsdale | Hyperdiluted

The world of Hyperdilute Radiesse injectables can be pretty intimidating at first sight. There are so many abstract dermal fillers that claim to do different things, so you have to resort to researching each of them one by one. In the process of doing that skin and facial research, you undoubtedly stumbled across Hyperdilute Radiesse and Radiesse. Sitting at your desk and sifting through nasolabial folds article can be daunting, time-consuming, and flat-out confusing! That’s why we’ve compiled the answer to every question you could have about these skin injectables in this article! Keep reading for the answers to all your questions!

What is Hyperdilute Radiesse?

Though it may sound a little intimidating, Hyperdiluted Radiesse is nothing more than Radiesse that has been thinned out with a mixture of saline solution and Lidocaine. The Hyperdiluted Radiesse is then injected into areas of the skin that are loose as opposed to firm. The Hyperdiluted Radiesse stimulates the body to create new collagen. This treatment naturally firms the area by adding volume and improving the skin texture overall. It can be a nice change from more invasive forms of body and skin augmentation. Part of the reason why Hyperdiluted Radiesse is such a good treatment is because of its long-lasting effects. Most other injectables don’t tend to last as long as Hyperdiluted Radiesse. When applied correctly on your skin and probably maintained, Hyperdiluted Radiesse can last for up to 2 years! In addition, “preliminary clinical and histologic studies have shown safety, efficacy, and durability in various esthetic applications” (Berlin A), meaning that it’s a safe and durable form of skin treatment in comparison to other dermal filler options.

How long does Hyperdilute Radiesse treatment last?

Hyperdilute Radiesse can be a very long-lasting form of treatment. The results tend to last up to two years. This is an especially welcome change from other forms of dermal injectables that don’t tend to last for nearly as long as Radiesse. Radiesse will give your skin a firming effect that can last for such an amazing length of time, but it’s also moldable enough for your Nurse Injector to mold it to your exact specifications.

How much does Hyperdiluted Radiesse cost?

Unlike many procedures, the cost for these treatments is very difficult to estimate without a consultation. Individual syringes can cost anywhere between $650 and $800 each. However, the number of syringes used will be different for each person. Depending on how exactly you’d like the treatment to come out and what effect you’d like it to have, the time of treatment could differ by quite a bit. Don’t try to come up with an estimation on your own. There may be certain factors that you’re simply not aware of that could change how extensive your treatment will be. Your best bet would be to reach out to Injections by Megan for a personal consultation.

How long will Hyperdilute Radiesse last?

Radiesse tends to last for around 15 months. It doesn’t last for as long as Hyperdiluted Radiesse, but it’s still one of the longest-lasting injectables on the market. However, Radiesse can still be a great choice.

Does Radiesse tighten skin?

Radiesse can tighten skin. The even more fascinating thing about Radiesse that separates it from many other forms of treatment is that it can correct areas that cannot typically be treated such as the “face, neck, décolletage, buttocks, thighs, arms, abdomen, knees, and elbows” (Almeida)! That being said, the most common use of Radiesse is within the face, especially the cheeks. Radiesse is a very special treatment because even though it’s long-lasting, it has a consistency that makes it easy for technicians to mold into a shape that you like.

How long does Hyperdilute Radiesse take to settle?

Many patients start seeing results regarding improved skin volume within 1 to 3 days post-treatment. The results for the treatment continue to get better over the following 2 to 4 weeks as the solution takes its time to settle into the skin. Even though many patients start seeing results so quickly after treatment, the results begin to look their best within 7 to 10 days post-treatment. After those 7-10 days, the effects of the Radiesse will be extremely noticeable to most. It’s also worth considering that this dramatic change in look with firmed skin will tend to last for quite a long amount of time – upwards of 15 months.

Is Hyperdilute Radiesse treatment good for cheeks?

Radiesse treatment is great for adding volume to cheeks because it contains calcium hydroxyapatite and can be shaped after the injection. This allows your technician to mold the Radiesse the shape of your cheek and make the adjustments that either you or the technician sees fit.

It’s also worth noting that one of the most common uses of Radiesse is within the cheeks. The amazing combination of the fact that the consistency of Radiesse makes it easy for your technician to mold and shape into whatever shape you prefer as well as Radiesse being a very long-lasting treatment makes it a very popular choice. In sum, yes, it’s a great treatment for your cheeks.

Does Hyperdilute Radiesse build collagen?

Radiesse collagen treatment assists your body in producing collagen naturally. The calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres in the injection stimulate the body to produce collagen, thereby helping your body build its natural filler. One of the great things about Radiesse is that it gives your skin the stimulation to create more collagen, resulting in an even more youthful appearance. On this level, it can be considered more of a natural approach to aging skin. It’s simply an amazing choice.

Is Radiesse worth the money?

While the answer to this question can vary from client to client, the vast majority find Radiesse to be a highly effective and worthwhile treatment. In general, if you have done your research on Radiesse, such as reading articles like this one, and you find that Radiesse can help you, you’ll probably find it to be worth the money. Its results are long-lasting and it stimulates the body to naturally produce more collagen. Though many types of body augmentations can yield beautiful results, the processes for them can be rather invasive. Radiesse’s natural approach and long-lasting results can be too good to pass up, in some cases.

However, when receiving your treatment, it’s important to remember that even though the fact that Radiesse is long-lasting is a pro, it can also be a con. If for whatever reason, you don’t like the way that the treatment looks once it’s settled, it cannot typically be dissolved by a technician. You’d have to wait for it to dissolve on its own, which could take a while. If you haven’t gotten injectables before, it may be worth looking at some other easily dissolvable options to figure out what kind of look you desire. Once you’re able to figure this out, Radiesse may be worth revisiting.

What is a calcium hydroxylapatite injection?

Injectable calcium hydroxylapatite filler, also known as Radiesse, is a biocompatible, dermal filler which is FDA approved.  A calcium hydroxylapatite injection can approve the appearance of severe facial wrinkles, lines, and folds.  

Is Radiesse more expensive than Juvederm?

In general, Radiesse tends to be more expensive than Juvederm. However, keep in mind that Radiesse also lasts longer than Juvederm. Considering this, the difference in cost may turn out to be more comparable than you’d expect. You’d sooner need another treatment of Juvederm than Radiesse, so you have to consider what takes priority for you. If you more so value the long-lasting effects of Radiesse, then Radiesse may be the better option. If you more so value a possibly lower price, you may prefer Juvederm.  In addition, the price of any dermal filler treatment can vary significantly from individual to individual based on the differing unique needs and desired results, so it’s worth keeping that in mind as well.

Is Radiesse better than Restylane?

Even though Radiesse can last longer than Restylane, it also is harder to correct and shape. If you’re more experienced with dermal filler injectors, Radiesse could be the better option. However, if you’re feeling wary or uneasy about whether or not you’ll like the results, it may be in your best interest to explore what other treatments Injections by Megan have to offer such as Restylane. Once again, there’s not a clear-cut answer to this question. It varies from individual to individual.

What is Hyperdilute Radiesse best for?

Radiesse is most often used to plump wrinkled or folded areas on the face. Radiesse is used so often because of its long-lasting nature in conjunction with the fact that it has a consistency that makes it easy for technicians to mold it to your exact specifications. Radiesse is a very common choice for adding volume and firmness to the face for these reasons.

Does Radiesse improve over time?

Because Radiesse stimulates collagen production while maintaining facial structure, the results can last for well over a year. It doesn’t necessarily “improve”, as in, “getting better and better”. Once it settles, it tends to maintain its new and youthful look for much longer than other injectables on the market.

What should you not do after a Radiesse injection?

Certain activities must be avoided after the treatment. Although your aftercare instructions will be personalized, you should not engage in behavior that could increase your blood pressure or cause you to experience excessive heat.

You should avoid smoking, drinking alcoholic beverages, and engaging in any form of vigorous exercise. You also need to avoid using a steam room or going to saunas.

It’s important to take this guide rather seriously because certain complications and annoyances can arise from refusing to follow them. Not following this guide can result in possible bumps or an unexpected appearance after the treatment. Because Radiesse is not readily dissolvable, these unwanted effects can last for as long as the treatment does if you’re not careful.

It’s also important to make sure you choose a reputable professional for a Radiesse treatment. Radiesse is “safe, efficacious and well-tolerated when used appropriately” (Emer J), but an inexperienced professional may not quite know how to use Radiesse appropriately. Make sure you get a consultation from Injections by Megan for a safe Radiesse or Hyperdilute Radiesse treatment in Scottsdale, AZ.

Does Hyperdilute Radiesse give volume?

Radiesse temporarily adds volume to help with smoothing facial wrinkles. It gives an immediate lifting and firming effect to the skin. Once injected, Radiesse directly provides the volume and lift needed to diminish the signs of aging with the help of the calcium-based microspheres and gel in the product.

Does Radiesse build bone?

No. Radiesse does not build bone. Radiesse stimulates your skin to produce collagen. This can lead to a much more firm and youthful look in your skin, but it does not necessarily build bone. You also may want to consult with Injections by Megan to see if the exact problem that you’re having is actually due to your bone structure. It may be something that can easily be treated with injectables.

Is Radiesse good for the jawline?

As we get older, the pads of fat in our faces begin to dissipate and separate. This separation and the result of gravity can cause heaviness along the jawline. It’s one of the most recognizable forms of aging, but can easily be corrected with Radiesse.

Radiesse can help to tether the pads of fat in the face to make the separation much less prominent.

Can Radiesse be dissolved?

No. Radiesse can not be dissolved. Certain technicians have tried to perform treatments to force Radiesse into dissolving prematurely, but these treatments are not typically successful. When it comes to Radiesse, it’s much better to wait for it to dissolve on its own than forcing it to dissolve prematurely.

Can Radiesse cause lumps?

Radiesse can potentially cause bumps, but these bumps tend to go away on their own within a couple of weeks. In addition, remaining stringent about avoiding certain activities after the treatment can minimize the potential bumps.

Is Radiesse better than Juvederm?

When choosing which injectable is right for you, it’s important to think about what your specific wants and values are. One specific injectable isn’t necessarily better for everyone. It depends on the goal. Juvederm is very effective at treating finer lines and deeper wrinkles, but Radiesse is more effective at correcting deeper and more severe lines and folds. It all depends on what it’s being used for.

Is Voluma better than Hyperdilute Radiesse?

One option is not necessarily “better” than the other. It simply depends on your preferences and priorities. Radiesse may last longer, but it can’t be dissolved. If you don’t like the way it looks, you’ll more than likely be stuck with its appearance for about 12-18 months. However, Voluma, though it does not last as long, can be dissolved afterward if you’re not fond of its appearance. It all depends on which option you would prefer. If you’re more partial to a long-lasting treatment, then Radiesse may be more beneficial for you. If this is your first injectable treatment and you’re not exactly sure what you want, you may want to table Radiesse for now and Voluma instead.

What type of filler is Hyperdilute Radiesse?

Radiesse is a dermal filler that is used to stimulate the skin into producing more collagen, resulting in a firmer, youthful look in whichever area that you choose to apply it to.

To find out more about Radiesse or other injectable treatments, reach out to Injections by Megan for a personal consultation.

Now to answer the question you’re really looking for the answer for – “Should I get Radiesse?”. The truth is that it depends. Maybe Radiesse would be an amazing option for you. Maybe another injectable would be a better fit for your needs. Poring over an excessive amount of articles and forums isn’t going to get you a clear cut answer. Reach out to Injections by Megan for a stress-free consultation.
