Smooth Wrinkles and Folds With Radiesse®
Restore a healthy, youthful appearance that enhances your existing features.
Radiesse® is designed to restore youthful volume to the cheeks, under-eyes, and hands, as well as to smooth fine lines and wrinkles. Additionally, Radiesse® can minimize the appearance of facial scars and refine facial contour.
Smooth wrinkles and folds
When we age, our skin doesn’t just wrinkle, it also loses its fullness. Gravity and repetitive movements (smiles and frowns) create well-worn grooves into our skin and cause sagging, thinness, and hollowness. But that smooth, full skin isn’t out of reach – Radiesse® can lift, plump, and revitalize your face and your hands. Benefits of Radiesse® include:
- Non-surgical, minimally invasive procedure
- Quick treatment with no downtime
- Immediate results that last 12- 18 months
- Continues to stimulate collagen production over time
- Reduces fine lines, folds, and wrinkles
- Increases fullness
- Reversible effects
About Our Radiesse® Treatment
Radiesse® is a dermal filler that instantly lifts and plumps, restoring volume and treating wrinkles and folds. Ideal for lifting and filling smile lines, marionette lines, pre-jowl folds, the corners of the mouth, and chin wrinkles in the face and for restoring volume in the hands to smooth and hide veins and tendons.
Injected through a small needle under the skin, Radiesse® is comprised of Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres. Providing immediate results, Radiesse® also stimulates collagen production and is eventually absorbed and metabolized by your body.

What to Expect on Your
After a consultation to determine your desired results, your Radiesse® appointment will take about 30 minutes. Causing only mild discomfort, treatment begins with a topical numbing cream or we may add lidocaine to the inject. When you are ready, we will precisely inject Radiesse® into your face or hands according to the volume and shape we’ve agreed upon.
You’ll see results immediately although you’ll experience minor swelling for up 48 hours after treatment. Effects are natural and subtle rather than drastic but if you’d like a more significant change, we can work toward it.
“Such an incredible place! I have nothing but amazing things to say about External Affairs. From the moment you walk in you are immediately welcomed by the incredible staff. Candace always gives such a warm welcome and goes above and beyond to make clients feel special. I was so lucky to have Nurse Marnie do my Botox and lip filler. She has such a wonderful and transparent personality, while giving such natural results. I am so impressed with my results and would definitely refer anyone to External Affairs Edmonton!”
Frequently Asked Questions
Do Radiesse® injections hurt?
The procedure is minimally invasive and causes minor discomfort. A topical numbing cream is used before treatment or lidocaine is added to the injectable to numb the discomfort.
What are the side effects or risks of Radiesse®?
Typically, side effects include minor swelling, redness, itching, and/or tenderness that lasts less than seven days. There is no downtime to this procedure, and you can continue your day as normal. With injectables, there is a risk of infection and potentially an unintentional injection into a blood vessel (though the chances are rare).
What are the results like?
At External Affairs, we focus on maintaining proportion and balance, so results are subtle, natural, and immediate. Radiesse® results last up to one year, but overtime, your body metabolizes the CaHA – because of this, the effects are completely reversible. Subsequent treatments may be required to achieve your desired effect.
