Radiesse- how long does it work?

Because Radiesse causes the body to lay down its own collagen, it may last a year to a year and a half. We will be having Radiesse Day in our office August 9 from 9-2 pm. Buy one syringe, get the second free! Call us at 206-292-6200 to book your spot!

Radiesse can last 10 to 12 months or more

There is variability from patient to patient but most are very happy with their result.  It lasts about one year, some less, some more.  If there is an area you don't like, it might be corrected.. Sometimes the depressed area still needs to be filled it and other times, the corrected area doesn't look good to the patient.  Unfortunately , there is no dissolver of this product.  If a nodule has occured, then some say sterile saline injected under pressure may help reduce the volume of the lump.

Most Radiesse gone in less than a year

The company says it lasts longer, but in my experience most Radiesse is gone in about 9 months.  Happy patients return sooner to "top of" the result and maintain their corrections.

I am sorry that you had a bad experience; most patients like Radiesse.

Radiesse, Duration of Radiesse, Radiesse Injections, Saline Injections

A Radiesse treatment lasts for approximately 9 months on average, However, some believe that saline injections may break down the Radiesse more quickly.  So if you are unhappy with your results, you can talk to your doctor about this.

How Long Does Radiesse Last

In most cases, Radiesse will typically last from one to several years, depending upon the location in which it is injected as well as your own rate of metabolism. Since Radiesse is not reversible, it is especially important to remember that the experience and technique of the physician injecting Radiesse is the most critical part to your achieving a beautiful, natural result.
