Radiesse® is a versatile dermal filler that can be used to rejuvenate both the hands and face. At Lewis Dermatology & Associates, we offer this and other dermal filler products to the residents of the Bronx, Queens, Brooklyn and the nearby areas of New York.
What is Radiesse®?
Radiesse® is a unique dermal filler treatment that provides both immediate and long-lasting results by restoring volume to the skin and stimulating natural collagen production. Like most dermal fillers, Radiesse® is a smooth gel that can be injected into the skin to instantly boost skin volume. This is done to address a variety of wrinkles and lines in the face, as well as a lack of volume in the back of the hands. However, Radiesse® sets itself apart with its unique formula, which includes collagen-stimulating benefits. After injection, while the body gradually absorbs the Radiesse® ingredients, collagen production is triggered. This means that as the Radiesse® formula is broken down, it is replaced with natural collagen – leaving you with incredibly long-lasting results that are actually completely natural! Most often, Radiesse® is used for:
- Smile lines
- Marionette lines
- Pre-jowl folds
- Corners of the mouth
- Chin wrinkles
- Volume loss in the hands
How Much does Radiesse® Cost?
The price of your Radiesse® treatment will vary depending on the size of your treatment area and the amount of product needed to help you achieve your desired results. To get a better idea of how much your Radiesse® treatment will cost, come in for a private consultation with Dr. Amy B. Lewis and her staff.

What Can I Expect During my Radiesse® Treatment?
Before your Radiesse® treatment begins, Dr. Lewis may apply a topical anesthetic to your desired treatment area. This is to ensure you remain as comfortable as possible throughout the entirety of your treatment. Once numb, Dr. Lewis will make a series of strategically placed Radiesse® injections into these areas. The entire treatment process typically takes under an hour to complete, after which patients are able to return to their normal daily activities including work.
What Results Can I Expect from Radiesse®?
Following your Radiesse® treatment, there may be some minor bruising, swelling or soreness in the treatment area, but these typically resolve within a few days and will not impact your ability to resume your usual activities. The results from Radiesse® will be visible immediately upon injection, so you will notice enhanced skin volume and smoothness before even leaving your appointment. These results will become more noticeable as any side effects fade in the days following treatment. Over time, the body will replace the Radiesse® formula with natural collagen, which means you can expect your Radiesse® treatment to produce results that last up to 18 months or longer.
Am I a Good Candidate for Radiesse®?
If you are looking for a minimally invasive, non-surgical treatment that can enhance skin volume, diminish lines and wrinkles and even stimulate natural collagen production, you may be a good candidate for Radiesse® treatments. The best way to find out if Radiesse® treatments are right for you is to schedule a one-on-one consultation with Dr. Amy B. Lewis. She’ll be happy to sit down with you, listen to your concerns, evaluate your goals, and develop a fully personalized treatment plan to help you reach all of your aesthetic and skin health goals.
