Aging is an unavoidable process, and there are many reasons that our skin starts to age. The loss of natural collagen is one of these reasons. Collagen acts as connective tissue to keep our skin smooth, supported, and youthful. To help restore collagen in the skin, Dr. Ness recommends treatment with Radiesse®.

What is Radiesse®?

Radiesse® is an FDA-approved dermal filler that can effectively fill in wrinkles and lines, as well as enhance facial contours. Radiesse is a typically used for areas around the nose, mouth, and on the hands. This gel-like substance adds volume to the areas of concern, creating a smooth, firm look. Radiesse® is made of calcium hydroxyapatite, designed to add long-lasting volume.

How Does Radiesse® Work?

Radiesse® is injected into the skin on the areas of concern. It works by helping to stimulate the natural collagen in your body. Collagen is a protein found in the skin that helps with connective tissue. Collagen helps to reduce cellulite, burn fat, build muscle, and reduce aging. As we age, the collagen in our skin slowly dissipates, leaving the skin to become looser. The scientists have made Radiesse® act as a recovery for the lost collagen. With the injection of Radiesse®, your body starts to metabolize the product, then allowing your skin to produce more of its own natural filler, thus letting effects last longer than more dermal fillers.

The procedure is very quick, with no downtime required. The doctor will use some form of local anesthesia to help with pain. The injection process takes about 15 minutes in the office. You may experience some bruising, swelling, redness, and tenderness but all of these side-effects should go away in a few days.

I have seen Dr. Ness since the day she opened. History of basal skin cancers and she takes care of me and my entire family. My family even comes from Bismarck to see her. I LOVE her new line of skincare, especially vitamin C and tinted sunscreen! She is the BEST and my kids love her.

Radiesse® Maintenance

Radiesse® is scientifically proven to have results lasting up to two years. Since this procedure is not permanent in order to get continued results, you will need to receive injections multiple times. Most patients only undergo the injection every two years, but this varies patient-to-patient. Dr. Rachel Ness here at Fargo Center For Dermatology will go over your treatment plan with you in detail.
