If you’ve been searching for a safe, effective and long lasting cosmetic enhancement, Americas Cosmetic Surgery Centers is pleased to offer RADIESSE®, for treatment of wrinkles and facial contouring. This versatile cosmetic filler can be used to address wide range of aesthetic needs. From enhancing the fullness of the lips, to adding volume to cheeks that have been affected by time, RADIESSE® works to restore a more youthful and renewed appearance.
What is it?
RADIESSE® is a safe biocompatible substance containing particles of calcium hydroxylapatite, which are found naturally in the body. It requires no allergy testing and has no side effects. These treatments are completely safe, utilizing your body’s natural abilities to add volume and shape to your face, defying wrinkles and producing collagen at the injection site.
What Can it Be Used For?
At our Rhode Island and Massachusetts facilities, we use RADIESSE® to help you with a wide range of wrinkle correction and facial cosmetic enhancements which include:
Nasal Defect Correction and Bridge Augmentation- With this treatment we can develop and reshape the bridge of your nose or straighten your nasal profile. Unlike surgery, RADIESSE® corrects nasal defects quickly and noninvasively with immediate results.
Cheekbone Contouring-Restores lost fat from cheekbones and volume to the cheeks you lost. With RADIESSE®, your cheeks will once again have their youthful sheen and luster.
Chin and Jawline Contouring-RADIESSE® can be used to augment your current chin and jawline. The result is a stronger and more elegantly incorporated chin that blends in perfectly to give you a more youthful appearance.
- Nasolabial Folds
- Marionette Lines
- Frown Lines

What Does The Procedure Involve?
In general, RADIESSE® treatments are quick and simple. In fact, this minimally invasive procedure can be performed in less time than a lunch break. The injections are usually done using a local anesthetic and can take around 15 minutes to complete.
During the procedure, the cosmetic filler is injected under the skin at the predetermined locations. Many patients notice immediate differences in their skin and/or facial contours, with the results typically lasting up to two years. These results are much longer lasting than with other facial procedures, such as BOTOX®.
What to Expect After the Procedure
The downtime required with RADIESSE® treatments is usually very minimal. Following the injections, the patient may be advised to rest briefly, but can soon return to their normal daily activities. Strenuous facial movements should also be minimized for a couple days after the procedure. In addition, it’s common for patients to experience some slight swelling, but that tends to last no more than a few days or so.
Restore a More Youthful Appearance With RADIESSE® by diminishing wrinkles and enhancing contours, RADIESSE® injections have helped many people enjoy a more renewed facial appearance with long-lasting results. If you are tired of returning to the clinic time and again for touch ups to achieve your aesthetic goals, this procedure may be right for you.
