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.
"Summer is literally the best. I was referred to her through a family member and I couldn’t have been more happy with my experience. Summer is incredibly knowledgeable, personable, and patient. I visited Summer for dermaplanning and a hydra facial, needless to say my skin is glowing! So happy I found her!"- A.B. / Google / Jun 28, 2020

"This review is for Lauren Budzinski. First off, I should start out by saying that I am an overly picky person. I rarely endorse anything publicly, so to reach my personal criterion says a lot. Lauren is the absolute best esthetician and the only person in Chicago that I trust with my face. Not only is she a genuine pleasure to interact with, but her work on skin is superb. I go to Lauren for microneedling, LHR, IPL, and hydrafacial procedures. Lauren worked with me to personalize a treatment plan to accomplish my personal skin texture resurfacing goals. In the three years that I have been regularly coming to her, I have been completely blown away with the results and positive change in my skin. The only reason that I would be remiss to write this review, is that her schedule would get booked up with y'all and she wouldn't have time for me. Inasmuch, Lauren comes with my highest recommendation for skin care in Chicago."- M.M. / Google / Jun 19, 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.
