What is Radiesse?
One of the most unique facial fillers around is RADIESSE, a volumizing filler that reverses the signs of aging by replacing lost volume. Once San Antonio dermatologist, Dr. Garcia, injects this filler, the results are immediate and dramatic. When RADIESSE is in the skin, it produces a scaffolding effect, which provides additional support for a patient’s natural collagen to grow. This increased production will go on for months, creating long-lasting effects of added facial volume. RADIESSE also stimulates the growth of elastin, which provides firmer skin for a rejuvenated look.
Radiesse is for patients who suffer from excessive wrinkles, lines and folds or would like a more youthful appearance. Radiesse sets itself apart from other fillers, such as Restylane and Juvederm, because it seeks to promote collagen growth and generally lasts longer. It is a better filler solution for patients seeking a longer lasting result.

"I came here in February and had a wonderful experience. I only waited about 10 minutes and a lovely PA treated me. She was very warm and engaging, I really appreciated it because I was initially anxious and uncomfortable about the procedure. We laughed a lot and although the process was quite painful, she definitely made it more bearable. Will be following up soon for a second!"- B. / Google / Oct 23, 2020
"I’ve been coming here for about a year or so, I have to be honest, I haven’t had the best luck. Few times, including today, I wanted to give up and find a new place BUT I’ve meant the sweetest, caring, compassionate, hard working, goes out of her way to make things right......her name is Kim. She has gone above and beyond to take care of things that weren’t taken care of before. And for that I will continue to come, because I know I can count on her. Thank you Kim for caring about me as a patient and a customer. You have touched my heart with your listening ear, kindness and have always cared about my concerns. I wish everyone was like you! I’m grateful and thankful for you."- T.W. / Yelp / Jul 22, 2021

"Great first impression! I initially received a referral from my PCP to another dermatology clinic but, after reading some of the reviews and asking around, I made the decision to cancel that referral and find another clinic in my network. I chose this one based on the good reviews here and elsewhere. I was seen by Daniella Arellano PA-C for hair loss/thinning. She listened to everything I had to say and presented various options we could take. No pressure to dive balding-head first into some expensive procedure, but I am happy that I was presented with a few paths to pursue without ruling out any of them for future consideration. I even had some medical questions a week after my appointment so I called and left a message, and I received a call back the same day with answers.This was my first time at this office. It was very clean and everyone I encountered from check-in to check-out was very nice. Located on Sonterra ACROSS from the Methodist hospital - navigation kept wanting me to go TO the hospital!I have only given it 4 stars because I don’t know yet if the visit will fix my issue and I did not want to mislead anyone by giving the impression they can fix EVERYTHING immediately. Maybe they can... and then it will be a 5!"- S.O. / Yelp / Jul 14, 2021
Before administering a Radiesse treatment, the dermatologist will consult with you to determine the amount of filler that is going to be injected. Radiesse is injected through a fine needle and will be massaged into the areas that need additional volume. To ensure that the injection goes where intended, the dermatologist will mark the injection sites with a washable pen. A typical treatment session can last up to an hour, as we will apply a numbing agent first to help control any discomfort during the injection.
What to Expect
After a Radiesse injection treatment, the results are visible almost immediately. There will be some swelling and tenderness around the injection sites, but this goes away within a few hours after treatment. Radiesse will continue to improve the skin by helping boost collagen growth, which is healthy for vibrant, smooth, youthful looking skin. Unlike some of our other filler products, Radiesse generally lasts a bit longer, sometimes up to 12-18 months for some patients.

Radiesse is priced per syringe. The overall cost is dependent upon how much of the filler is needed for treatment, but patients can expect to pay on average $700 per syringe. Our treatment coordinator will discuss payment once it has been determined how much filler product will be needed to attain the right results. Some patients may require multiple syringes, which will increase the overall cost.

Radiesse is a popular treatment at our dermatology office because it creates glowing results, with a much longer effect than some of the other injectables we carry.
