With just one treatment of Radiesse® Volumizing filler wrinkles and folds disappear. Immediately. Subtly. And because Radiesse Volumizing Filler naturally stimulates your body's own collagen your skin looks even better over time.

Radiesse consists of calcium hydroxylapatite suspended in gel. Because calcium hydroxylapatite is a normal constituent of bone, it should not elicit a chronic inflammatory or immune response. Additionally, the gel carrier does not require allergy testing, as is required with collagen.

Possible Side Effects of Radiesse Treatment

In general, calcium hydroxylapatite has safely been used in the body for many applications including dental applications where bone build-up is needed for reconstruction and also in block form for cosmetic applications such as cheek, jaw, cranial and chin implants. Calcium hydroxylapatite creates a lattice where the surrounding cells can be incorporated from ossification in bony areas to a stable scaffold in which soft tissue can grow.

Immediately after the Radiesse treatment, there may be a slight redness, swelling, tenderness or itching sensation at the treated area. This is only normal cause of the injection and the inconvenience is temporary, it generally goes away in a day or two.

Pain during Radiesse injections is different for each patient depending on their sensitivity to pain. Thought the injections may prick a little normally no anesthesia is needed for treatment of wrinkles and folds. Most people report that the injections are relatively painless. A lip treatment can be quite uncomfortable and therefore, a nerve block is normally made.

Allergy testing is not required before injecting Radiesse, however you can keep an icepack on the treated area for 15 minutes to reduce possible swelling. Arnica (under the tongue) can be taken every two hours for the first day or two if any bruising occurs.

"I lost 62 pounds and got my life back!" - Scott G.

Scott came to Atlanta Medical Institute last summer with a desire to lose 50 pounds. He was experiencing chest pains that led him to believe that a heart attack was eminent and that he might not see his son’s eighteenth birthday. He had settled into bad habits included meal skipping, fast food consumption, sedentary living and engaging in what he called his “one hour snack” as the day’s final and only meal. Scott followed his Weight Loss Program and in a little over four months, exceeded his goal and lost 62 pounds. His statement is that he feels like he got his life back and has learned how to manage his eating and enjoy a dynamic exercise routine once again!

 

"I exceeded my weight loss goals and lost 77 pounds!" - Kelly W.

Kelly came to Atlanta Medical Institute frustrated with her yo-yo dieting and weighing in at her lifetime high of 194. She had portion control issues, craved carbs and sweets, and frequently skipped meals. She decided to get help and hoped to shed 50 pounds. During her initial month of Personalized Weight Loss, Kelly lost 20 pounds. Her continued Weight Loss efforts allowed her to not only reach her goal, but to exceed it. She recently weighed in at 117 pounds (that’s a 77 pound loss); elated were her accomplishment and feeling like all things are possible!

 

"I now feel energized and NO MORE pain! - Diane B.

Diane wanted to lose 20 pounds and eliminate persistent joint pain and had exhausted her own efforts. She ate well and exercised, but found it impossible to get her metabolism to cooperate in the way she expected it should. Diane stated her ability and dedication to following a program that could get her weight loss moving. She followed a Customized Weight Loss Program that found her 22 pounds lighter in 3 months. She is elated with the results and very pleased to find herself lighter, energized and, to her surprise, pain free.

 

"My diabetes is improving, the weight loss is a bonus!" - Charlotte L.

Charlotte was struggling with obesity, diabetes and depression and had lost her ability to feel good about her life. We outlined a manageable Weight Loss Strategy for weight reduction and coaching support that would help her physically and emotionally. Very quickly Charlotte was down 19 pounds, feeling lighter and most importantly quite happier. She experienced a significant change in her hemoglobin A1C, an important marker for diabetes, which had become impossible to regulate prior to her Weight Loss Program. Charlotte is enjoying new confidence and happiness as she continues her Weight Loss Journey.

 

"This saved my health and my life!" - Anna W.

Anna came to Atlanta Medical Institute in July of 2015 weighing 369 pounds, on numerous prescription medications, feeling defeated and deciding that this was her last chance. During the first month of her Weight Loss Program, Anna lost 22 pounds, followed by an additional 36 pounds over the next couple of months. While she is still on her Weight Loss Journey and has more weight to lose, Anna’s health and sense of well-being have given her a new outlook on her life and her future and the opportunity to do things she was incapable of doing before. She no longer feels defeated, rather triumphant, successful and happy.
