"I was new to injectables and recently got both Sculptra and Dysport with Jacqueline. She is so personable and kind and manages to discuss your self-conscious areas needing correction without making you feel worse about yourself (which is a talent!). The entire process was quick and as painless as it could’ve been. I would highly recommend anyone new or nervous about dipping their toes into aesthetics working with Jacqueline. You’ll leave looking and feeling much better about yourself!"- K.C. / Google / Nov 08, 2022

How does radiesse work?
Radiesse wrinkle injections are performed in a treatment room at Body+Beauty Lab in around 30 – 60 minutes, typically following your one-on-one consultation. To start the procedure, you will lay in a relaxed position as the injection sites are cleaned and marked. Many patients feel tolerable discomfort throughout the duration, but a local anesthetic may be applied to the treatment sites if desired. The Radiesse dose, determined during your consultation, will be placed in a fine needle, and the pre-marked sites will help your injector to carefully administer the product into the needed areas. As soon as your treatment is complete, a compress will be held to the areas to reduce bruising and swelling.
What can I Expect after radiesse?
Following your Radiesse injection, you may have mild bruising, redness, and swelling. This is normal and should only last for around a week. These side effects may typically be camouflaged with cosmetics. If the bruising, swelling, or redness lasts longer than ten days, or if you are concerned, please contact Body+Beauty Lab. Many clients notice visible improvements mere minutes after the treatment with final results emerging after a month or so. Following your treatment, your face will look softer, younger, and lifted. Radiesse typically lasts longer compared to other dermal fillers — about 1 – 2 years. During your appointment, you can ask your medical injector about the right time to touch-up your results.
How much does Radiesse cost?
The cost of your Radiesse treatment will depend on the amount of product used to reach your goals. During your consult at Body+Beauty Lab, your injector will listen to your needs and wants so they can develop your totally personalized treatment plan. After this, we will be able to estimate your costs and discuss payment methods. If you're interested in saving money on future nonsurgical and spa services, ask how to join our VIP membership program.
How does Radiesse compare to other fillers?
Injectable wrinkle fillers each have different properties and formulas to help with various issues. Common filler materials include HA (hyaluronic acid), CaHa (calcium hydroxyapatite), poly-L-lactic acid, and PMMA (polymethylmethacrylate). Radiesse uses calcium-based microspheres, which are similar to HA wrinkle fillers since both prompt collagen production in your body. At your appointment, we will explain the different dermal filler brands and assess your skin's volume, laxity, and tone to determine which product will address your unique concerns.
Are Radiesse injections painful?
Usually, patients don't need numbing cream before their treatments. However, numbing cream can be applied to relieve any concerns you may have related to pain. New clients report feeling brief and minor discomfort as the needle goes in.
What are the side effects of Radiesse?
Radiesse injections carry a low risk of serious side effects if performed by a skilled injector, like those on our team at Body+Beauty Lab. During your consultation, talk to your injector about the medications you take and any allergies you have to avoid potential problems. Following your injection, you might develop mild bruising, redness, itching, or numbness. These side effects are temporary and should disappear after a few days.
What other procedures can I combine with Radiesse?
Radiesse can be combined with other injectable and nonsurgical treatments to produce optimal results. Some patients receive fillers with BOTOX or another wrinkle relaxer to give them a totally refreshed appearance. Speak to your injector when they're creating your treatment plan and ask about treatments that complement Radiesse.
