As we age, our body’s stores of collagen and fat are gradually depleted and production of collagen slows, leaving skin flattened, dull, saggy, and wrinkled.

If you’re seeking meaningful results to treat these concerns, CaTara Medical Spa is happy to help with Radiesse in Algonquin. Radiesse offers nonsurgical implant effects–augmenting cheeks, noses, and chins along with treating aged hands and stimulating collagen production.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do men get Radiesse?

We routinely see male patients for Radiesse in Algonquin to address their various aesthetic concerns. Injectables can be a very quick, effective, and noninvasive way to treat what’s bothering you!

Is there downtime with Radiesse?

After a Radiesse injection, you’ll be able to return to your normal activities immediately. However, you may experience some “social downtime” due to swelling or bruising. Your injector will provide you with post-care instructions to help minimize these side effects.

What is Radiesse and how does it work?

The Radiesse filler is a gel formulated from tiny calcium particles. Using a very fine needle, our expert injectors can place the gel right below the skin to add volume and lift the skin to produce radiant, youthful results. Then, over time, the calcium prompts your body to produce new collagen naturally in its place!

How long does Radiesse last?

Radiesse can last longer than other skin fillers (up to 1 year). European studies found that the effects of a Radiesse injection can last up to 2 years! Results will vary based on your lifestyle and anatomy.

How soon will I see results after Radiesse injections?

You will notice your results immediately after being treated with Radiesse in Algonquin.

Does it hurt to get Radiesse injections?

Before a Radiesse injection, we will apply a topical anesthetic. Therefore, most patients experience only a temporary discomfort. Certain injection sites may be prone to bruising and swelling, though. We’ll be sure to walk you through everything to expect from a Radiesse injection during your initial consultation! We’ll also provide you with post-treatment instructions on how to specifically minimize this potential bruising and swelling.

Who injects the Radiesse?

In order to deliver results you love—and results we’re proud of—we only allow our most highly educated, extensively trained and certified medical staff to perform Radiesse injections.

Is Radiesse approved by the FDA?

Yes. Radiesse is FDA-approved for the long-lasting correction of moderate-to-severe facial wrinkles and folds, as well as facial fat loss, and overall volume loss in the back of the hands. It is widely considered to be safe and has been used in the aesthetic industry for years to address various skin concerns. In fact, it’s the only filler in the United States that’s FDA approved specifically for use in the backs of the hands! We are happy to answer any additional questions you have about the safety of your procedure to make sure you feel totally safe and comfortable in our care.
