When will Radiesse results go down?

When will the carrier gel of the radiesse disappear and when will radiesse results start to go down? Also,will superficial injection of radiesse metabolizes any different than radiesse that is injected deeper? Please answer all questions! Doctors on here tend to only answer one of the questions I ask in the description, thank you for you help!

In a couple of months....

Thanks for your question. Because Radiesse can’t be broken down, results can last up to two years. However, as months pass you will see correction from your own collagen. Hope this helps!

Radiesse - Safety and Results

It takes a few months for the gel carrier to dissolve and 12-15 months for the radiesse to be integrated and be metabolized.  Please see an expert.  Best, Dr. Emer.

Radiesse is made of 2 substances the carrier gel and the collagen stimulator. The gel goes away in a few months leaving the stimulator in place which then is replaced over months by your own collagen which then stays to produce the correction. Radiesse is never injected superficially so there is not a 2 phase disappearance like you may think--it is more physiologic
