Am I Ready for Radiesse injections?
Adults who are in good overall health and concerned about mild to moderate wrinkles and lines are the ideal patients for RADIESSE treatments. It can smooth marionette lines, smile lines, pre-jowl folds, chin wrinkles, and lines that form in the corners of the mouth. RADIESSE is also approved to treat age-related volume loss in the hands to hide veins and other imperfections in the skin. You shouldn't have this injection if you are allergic to lidocaine or other ingredients in RADIESSE. Be sure to talk to our aesthetics team about any allergies (severe or not) and if you have a history of any bleeding disorders. If you are breastfeeding, pregnant, might be pregnant, or are considering pregnancy in the next several years, you should not use RADIESSE injections.
"Rachel Schulman was very detailed, responsive, and was great at listening to my concerns. I’m very happy with my results for filler to treat a acne scar, under eye and in my cheeks. Thank you !"- T.H. / Yelp / Jun 12, 2020
"I had a fantastic experience with this office and Dr. Gutoswki. Everything from scheduling through the procedure was great. They were thorough and explained my options very well. I had been putting this surgery off for a long time because I thought it was going to be very uncomfortable but everyone was great. They made the entire process really easy and I would definitely recommend them. I’m really happy with my results."- E.M. / Yelp / Oct 23, 2020
"The team at LPA are so incredibly kind and accommodating. In particular, Jenna M. is incredibly talented with all things aesthetics. She will make you feel your very best - while looking natural, and feeling as if you left a cocoon of care. Her extensive experience, ability to REALLY listen, make sure you are comfortable, and follow up is the gold standard. I can’t recommend her or this clinic more - very special people!"- J.J. / Yelp / Oct 15, 2020

"I come here for Jordan’s facials because I love Jordan and she is the reason I never wear makeup anymore AND she cured my skin when I had the most atrocious pores and also a compromised barrier. I would pretty much die for Jordan at this point. This is a medspa so it’s not quite as ~calming~ as a traditional spa but I do get to have more intense peels so it’s kind of worth it."- K.S. / Yelp / Oct 08, 2020
Our Radiesse Injection Technique
RADIESSE injections are performed in one of the treatment rooms at Lincoln Park Aesthetics in around 30 – 60 minutes once you have completed the consultation. To begin the treatment, you will sit comfortably while the areas of injection will be cleaned and marked. Most patients feel mild discomfort when the needle is first inserted. If preferred, a numbing cream can be spread on the treatment sites. The RADIESSE dose, chosen during your consultation, will be prepared for your specified injections. The pre-marked site of injection will guide the injector to carefully administer RADIESSE into the skin. As soon as we are finished injecting the RADIESSE, a cold compress can be held to the treated areas to alleviate some of the bruising and swelling.
What to Expect
After your RADIESSE injection, you may see mild redness, swelling, and bruising. This is common and should only last for about 5 – 10 days. These side effects can usually be camouflaged with cosmetics. If the side effects last longer than ten days or if you are concerned, please contact Lincoln Park Aesthetics. Most patients see visible results immediately with better results appearing in a month or so. Your face should look softer, younger, and have a natural glow. RADIESSE tends to last longer compared to other dermal fillers — around 1 – 2 years. You should ask about when to schedule your next injection to touch up your results.
