"Great experience with Radiesse in my radix - Dr. Sadati takes his time to listen to your concerns and I actually wanted something corrected surgically and he opted for me to correct it non-surgic ..."- Anonymous / Vitals / Jun 08, 2016
"Non Surgical Nose Job with Radiesse - Newport Beach, CA - I had rhinoplasty which left me with an overly scooped bridge. This also made my tip appear more projected than it actually was... The filler by Dr. Sadati gave me a straight bridge and a tip that appeared less projected. Very happy. It was a quick, easy, painless procedure. I will go back to him when I need more!"- R. / RealSelf / Mar 25, 2014

Radiesse can be injected during an office visit in just 30 minutes. Before the procedure, the injection areas will be marked and cleaned. A local anesthetic may be used for additional comfort; however, the filler itself is mixed with an anesthetic called lidocaine. Using a syringe, Suzanne Rogers will inject the Radiesse filler into the skin. Following the procedure, you may experience numbness or redness near the injection sites, which normally subsides in a short time. There is no downtime and you will be able to return to work following your appointment.
What to Expect
A noticeable difference will be evident following a Radiesse injection. Since the injection ingredient works to produce and stimulate collagen development, results will be longer lasting than some of the other fillers on the market. Results will yield a fuller, younger-looking contour that is soft and smooth. Typically, results last up to one year but repeated injections can be obtained to maintain your desired outcome.
What About Other Fillers?
Patients who are considering an injectable filler as part of their cosmetic treatment have a diverse selection of fillers to choose from. Fillers such as Radiesse are considered temporary even though the results may last up to one year. Common filler treatments include collagen, calcium hydroxyapatite, hyaluronic acid, polylactic acid, and the heaviest of the fillers, PMMA. During your consultation, we will discuss the various fillers and evaluate your facial tone, laxity, and volume levels to help you decide which filler may be the best choice.
What Makes Radiesse Different?
Radiesse is the only dermal filler composed of calcium-based microspheres, which are comparable to hyaluronic acid injectable fillers due to their natural ability to stimulate collagen production. The results slightly vary between the two types of fillers— patients generally are more pleased with results from Radiesse.
What About Side Effects?
Patients undergoing Radiesse may have mild redness, bruising, numbness and/or itching that occur following treatment. These are temporary side effects that usually disappear within a day or two.
