What Is Radiesse?

Today there are several injectable fillers on the market for you to choose from for facial rejuvenation.

The RADIESSE injectable wrinkle filler offered by Frisco, TX, board-certified physician Dr. Jon Ricks is great for mild and moderate wrinkles and lines on the face and for correcting volume loss in the hands. Men and women who might not have time for frequent visits love the long-lasting results (1 – 2 years) of RADIESSE. Using calcium hydroxyapatite microspheres in a water-based gel, this injectable fills and softens the appearance of your skin without the time and expense of surgery. RADIESSE has been approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) to safely volumize your face. It may be used in tandem with other injectable treatments (wrinkle relaxers and fillers) for a customized procedure to rejuvenate your appearance. Look several years younger and improve your self-image with RADIESSE injectable wrinkle treatments at Ciao Bella Medical Spa in Frisco, TX.

RADIESSE Ideal Candidates

Women and men who are in good health and want to correct their mild to moderate facial lines and wrinkles are the best patients for RADIESSE treatments.

It can improve smile lines, marionette lines, chin wrinkles, pre-jowl folds, and fine lines that form in the corners of the lips. RADIESSE is also safe to treat age-related volume loss in the hands to make them softer and younger-looking. You should not have this treatment if you are allergic to lidocaine or any ingredients in the product. Be sure to tell Dr. Ricks if you have any allergies (whether mild or severe) and your medical history. If you are breastfeeding, pregnant, may be pregnant, or are trying to conceive within several years, you shouldn't get RADIESSE injections.

RADIESSE Procedure

RADIESSE dermal injections take place in one of the treatment rooms at Ciao Bella Medical Spa around 30 – 60 minutes after your consultation.

To begin your treatment with RADIESSE Frisco injectables expert Dr. Ricks will first clean and mark the injection sites. Many patients feel only mild discomfort during their procedure at the first prick, but if preferred, a numbing cream can be used on the treatment sites. The dosage of RADIESSE, determined during your personalized treatment planning session, will be prepared in a syringe with a very fine needle. The marked site of injection will help guide the injector to carefully administer RADIESSE into the needed areas. After the procedure is complete, a cold compress may be held to the treated areas to help minimize bruising and swelling.


Following your RADIESSE treatment, you may see slight redness, swelling, and bruising.

This is normal and should only last for about a week. These side effects may typically be camouflaged with cosmetics. If the bruising, swelling, or redness lasts longer than ten days or if you are concerned, please contact Ciao Bella Medical Spa. Most Frisco RADIESSE patients see visible results immediately, with final results developing over time. Your face will appear younger, softer, and lifted. RADIESSE typically lasts longer than many of the other dermal fillers — about 1 – 2 years. You can talk to Dr. Jon Ricks during your appointment about when to schedule your next treatment to touch up your results.

Radiesse Frequently Asked Questions

Your cost for a RADIESSE treatment will depend on how much is needed to achieve your desired outcome. During your initial consultation at our practice, we will listen to your expected results and create your custom treatment plan. Then, they can offer your potential costs.

Dermal fillers each have different properties and formulas to address different issues. Common filler materials are hyaluronic acid (HA), CaHa (calcium hydroxyapatite), poly-L-lactic acid, and polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA). RADIESSE is made with calcium-based microspheres, which are comparable to HA dermal fillers in the way it helps increase collagen production. During your consultation, your injector will review the various fillers and evaluate your facial volume and tone to help you decide which one matches your needs.

Usually, patients do not need local anesthesia before their injections. However, numbing cream can be provided if you are worried about any discomfort. Many patients experience minor and short-lived discomfort as the needle goes in.

Treatments with RADIESSE have a low risk of severe side effects if done by a skilled injector, like our team at Ciao Bella Medical Spa. In your consult, talk to your injector about any medications you are taking and if you have any known allergies to avoid problems. Immediately following your treatment, you may experience mild redness, bruising, itching, or numbness. This is temporary and will usually be gone in a few days.

RADIESSE injections can be done with other injectable treatments to help achieve your ideal results. Many patients inject wrinkle fillers, such as RADIESSE, with BOTOX or another wrinkle relaxer to create a refreshed appearance. Talk to your injector in your consultation to learn more about treatments that can be combined with RADIESSE dermal filler injections.

"Dr. Ricks is a great doctor! He’s compassionate and understanding. He also takes time to listen to what I have to say instead of trying to rush me out, which is very important. He also takes time to call to check on me after the many surgeries that I have had, and that says a lot. Dr. Ricks goes above and beyond for his patients. A doctor that goes that extra mile and still has time to run a full time business says a lot. THANK YOU, DR.RICKS."

"Dr. Ricks is by far the best OBGYN out there. From the first appointment, he has been great. His bedside manner is amazing, and he is truly knowledgeable and will spend the time with you to be sure you understand what’s going on, too. He will go above and beyond for his patients and has personally done that for me, as well as a couple of my friends that see him too.
