Radiesse® is a long-lasting injectable dermal filler that can smooth deep lines and wrinkles and restore lost volume for a more youthful appearance. Radiesse® is a versatile filler made of biocompatible calcium-based microspheres that stimulate your body’s own natural collagen production. In addition to reducing the appearance of stubborn wrinkles, such as nasolabial folds (smile lines), Radiesse® can also be used to reduce the appearance of jowls and to create a more sculpted look by adding definition to the cheekbones and jaw.

San Diego Plastic Surgeon Dr. John Hilinski has extensive experience in non-surgical injectables and uses Radiesse® to help patients achieve a younger, more refined appearance with natural looking results.

Before and After – Radiesse® Results

Radiesse® for Hand Rejuvenation

Many people who look and feel more youthful than their years will find that their age shows on their hands. As we get older, our hands lose some of the natural fat that keeps them smooth and the skin loses elasticity. The result is visible veins and tendons that can make hands appear older than we’d like. Radiesse® injections can rejuvenate hands. Learn more about Radiesse® for hands.

Radiesse® for Non-Surgical Chin Augmentation

If you are bothered by a “weak chin,” but you are not interested in chin augmentation surgery, Radiesse® may be a solution. Dermal filler injections with Radiesse® can add volume and projection to a recessed chin for a more balanced appearance and a stronger looking jaw line.
