what is radiesse Radiesse is an injectable filler (formerly known as Radiance) made of calcium-based microspheres used for wrinkle reduction. At Cosmetic Laser Dermatology, our dermatologists are world-renowned injectors of San Diego dermal fillers with an unparalleled level of expertise, and they perform Radiesse treatments themselves, instead of having a nurse or assistant do it.

When we are young, our skin contains natural collagen.  It’s this natural collagen that makes young skin strong, flexible and full of natural volume. However, as we age, collagen breaks down, resulting in less facial elasticity and volume. Our expert injections immediately provide volume and lift back to your face. The filler works by stimulating your body’s own collagen production for long-lasting correction and smoothing.

CL Derm is a Radiesse Center of Excellence for Hands

The world-renowned dermatologists at Cosmetic Laser Dermatology are proud to announce that we have been named the only Radiesse Hands Center of Excellence in San Diego! Our expert injectors have such extensive experience and expertise in administering Radiesse for younger, smoother looking hands that Merz, the makers of Radiesse, have honored our team with this distinction.

What is Radiesse?

The hands are often the first to develop the signs of aging since so much attention and care is paid to the fine lines and wrinkles that may appear on the face. But the delicate skin of the hands can grow thinner and wrinkle as we age. Fortunately, Radiesse is the only FDA-approved injectable dermal filler for treating volume loss in the hands. Best of all, Radiesse not only achieves beautiful, natural looking results, but the immediate volumizing effect can last as long as 12 months.

Radiesse smooths wrinkles, creases, and indentations in the back of the hand as well as reduces the appearance of veins and tendons, which tend to become more pronounced as we grow older. As with most dermal fillers, the injections may cause minimal side effects, such as redness, swelling, itchiness, and bruising; however, these effects typically fade over a few days.
