About Radiesse at Versailles Medical Spa
Collagen is what gives volume, flexibility and strength to healthy, young skin. As a part of the aging process, your own natural collagen breaks down, diminishing facial volume and elasticity. This loss of elasticity and volume results in wrinkles, facial lines and skin laxity – all of which rob your skin of its youthful, fresh appearance.
Replenish Volume. Restore Collagen. Refresh You.
Ideal wrinkle reduction is achieved by replenishing your skin’s lost volume. Upon injection, RADIESSE® Volumizing Filler immediately provides the volume and lift needed to diminish the signs of aging because of the calcium-based microspheres and gel that comprise the product. But what’s unique about RADIESSE Volumizing Filler is that it acts as a scaffold under the skin, providing structure and stimulating your own natural collagen to grow. This process continues for several months, which extends the initial effect of RADIESSE Volumizing Filler. Best of all, the natural results are clinically proven to last a year or more in many patients, which is why more and more cosmetic surgeons, dermatologists, and other medical professionals are choosing RADIESSE Volumizing Filler to achieve long-lasting facial rejuvenation.

Frequently Asked Questions about Radiesse in Darien, CT
How does Radiesse work?
Radiesse is a dermal filler used to plump up the skin. RADIESSE is comprised of Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres suspended in an aqueous gel carrier. These microspheres provide immediate volume and correction but continue to work by stimulating the body to produce its own natural collagen.
Is Radiesse safe?
Yes. Radiesse is a safe and effective dermal filler, and has been FDA-approved since 2006.
Is there any downtime?
Radiesse typically poses little to no social downtime. As with all injectables, clients may experience some post-treatment redness, swelling, bruising or other mild, temporary side effects. Many patients, however, are able to resume their normal activities right away.
Is it painful?
Radiesse is enhanced with lidocaine, which numbs on contact. The majority of our patients experience only mild and momentary discomfort. Every effort is made to ensure treatment is as comfortable as possible.
How soon before I see my results?
Improvement with Radiesse can be seen immediately or almost immediately following treatment. In addition, because Radiesse continues to stimulate your own collagen production, you can enjoy results for a number of months following treatment as well.
How long will my results last?
Radiesse is clinically proven to last a year or more in many patients.
