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.
"I have never really been one to place great care on my skin, which was all fine and dandy in my early 20s, but having just scratched the surface into my 30s, I knew it was high-time to start investing in my skin. After seeing incredible results with Jordan from a laser hair removal Groupon last year, I decided to call upon her for my skin. My first appointment was such a great experience! Beforehand, I was feeling a little embarrassed about the lack of skin care in my past, but Jordan listened without judgement and made me feel so comfortable. I have always had dry skin and thought that buying products for "normal to dry skin" was the best thing for me, but after that first appointment, I walked away with a much better understanding that dry skin can mean sensitive skin, so the exfoliants I was using was actually making my skin worse. AH! I have only been seeing her a few short months, but I can already see such a difference. I didn't even realize how dull my skin was looking before meeting with Jordan. The dry, wrinkled-looking skin that I had just come to expect when looking in the mirror is starting to look smooth and shiny. Not to mention, when the pandemic has let up and allowed brief glimpses at a normal life, I haven't been wearing foundation while going out because the coloring of my skin is the most even it has ever been (take that, early-20s me!) I cannot recommend LPA enough and, in particular, I cannot recommend Jordan enough! If you want to look your best, it is 100% worth the investment."- A.J. / Google / Nov 24, 2020
"I’ve been going back and forth on getting botox for a while. After talking to LPA’s newest injector, Julia Kocemba, I decided to finally go for it and I’m so happy I did!This was my first time receiving injectables and the appointment couldn’t have gone any smoother! Julia answered all of my first-timer questions [yes, there were a lot of them] with great detail and patience. By the time I was ready to be injected, I felt knowledgeable and confident in the process and type of treatments I was about to receive. Throughout the entirety of the appointment, I felt safe and knew I was in the best hands with Julia!I LOVE my results and have been recommending Julia to everyone! I already have my next treatment scheduled and I will continue to reach out to her with any other derm/aesthetics questions I have. Go see Julia!!!!"- A.H. / Yelp / Nov 23, 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. / Google / Oct 24, 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
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.
