Your face shows signs of aging when the skin on your face loses collagen, a component that keeps your skin firm and youthful.
At the practice of Dr. Beth Collins in Guilford, we use Radiesse® to correct wrinkles, restore facial volume and stimulate the production of more collagen in your skin.
Who Should Get Radiesse?
If you dislike the signs of aging caused by collagen loss, you may benefit from Radiesse treatments with Dr. Collins. After injection, Radiesse causes your body to produce more collagen, a process called collegenesis.
Dr. Collins can use Radiesse to treat the following signs of aging:
- Nasolabial folds and marionette lines
- Wrinkles around your mouth
- Puffy, dark bags beneath your eyes
- Sunken, hollow cheeks.
Healthy non-smokers between the age of 18-65 can benefit from Radiesse injections.

What Does Radiesse Do?
You will see the effects of your Radiesse injections right away. Radiesse is a dermal filler, so it immediately restores volume to your face and skin. Dr. Collins injects Radiesse into your skin in the areas that need wrinkle correction. The filler restores volume to sunken areas, reducing the appearance of lines and contour depressions.
Radiesse is made from calcium-based microspheres suspended in a water-based gel. Over time, the calcium-based microspheres cause your body to generate more collagen. After your Radiesse treatments, your body will produce more collagen—which means you will have younger looking skin.
After Radiesse, What Should I Expect?
Radiesse injections can cause some swelling, bruising, or redness where Dr. Collins made the injections. These are temporary. You can return to your normal tasks right away.
You will immediately see the skin plumping effects of Radiesse. Over time, your skin will continue to improve due to increased collagen production.
The results of Radiesse last up to one year.
Related Procedures And Alternatives
Other fillers can be used to restore lost facial volume, such as Juvederm®. Treatments like Botox® and Dysport® can improve signs of facial aging on the forehead and in the eye area. These facial treatments work differently than Radiesse, which stimulates collagen production in your skin. Dr. Collins can also improve signs of facial aging through surgery. A facelift or brow lift can achieve a significant correction to signs of aging in the face.
