RADIESSE® is a prescription injectable dermal filler that reduces the appearance of facial folds and wrinkles and improves the condition of the skin in two key ways:

  • Creates a scaffold under the skin to provide immediate restoration of lost facial volume
  • Stimulates the body to naturally produce collagen, the protein responsible for retaining moisture in the skin, keeping it firm, soft and plump

Although many dermal fillers offer one of the two aforementioned benefits, RADIESSE® is uniquely able to provide both, thereby enabling patients to experience instant cosmetic improvements coupled with extended skin rejuvenating results, which have been clinically proven to last a year or more in many patients.

The active ingredient in RADIESSE® injectable gel is Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHA), a water-based gel carrier that is naturally absorbed and metabolized by the body over time, leaving behind only the natural collagen the CaHA has stimulated your body to produce. The depletion of facial volume can result from significant weight loss or the natural aging process, causing the face to appear aged, gaunt, or tired, and wrinkles to appear more prominent. Fortunately, RADIESSE® is specifically designed to address and treat the following cosmetic problems related to facial volume loss, including:

  • Marionette Lines: lines that run straight downwards from the corners of the mouth
  • Laugh Lines (Nasolabial Folds): lines and creases running from the side of the nose to the corner of the mouth
  • Pre-jowl area (pre-jowl sulcus): the area on either side of the chin
  • Oral Commissures (corners of the mouth): the corners of the mouth can turn downward with age, giving the appearance of frowning or anger
  • Chin Wrinkles: this wrinkle forms horizontally across the chin, which can detract from the appearance of one’s smile

Dermal filler injections require a high degree of skill and precision, which is why it is imperative to have your RADIESSE® injections administered by a trained practitioner who specializes in the field of aesthetic enhancement procedures.  Dr.  Jason A. Shapiro, M.D. makes it a priority to stay up to date with the latest developments in the field of non-surgical skin rejuvenation procedures in order to offer his patients the most effective treatments with minimal side effects and long-lasting results. As the Medical Director at Tribeca Medaesthetics, located in beautiful Miami Beach, Florida, Dr. Shapiro and his team of professionally trained medical aestheticians have helped many patients reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles and restore lost volume to their skin with RADIESSE® injections.

Your RADIESSE® treatment will be performed in our office and typically takes no longer than 20 minutes, after which you can resume your normal daily activities. RADIESSE® has been FDA-approved to be supplemented with lidocaine, in order to minimize patient discomfort during and after the treatment.  Patients may experience temporary bruising and swelling following treatment; however, these symptoms are generally mild, subside quickly, and can be ameliorated with ice packs. You will notice an immediate reduction in the appearance of your fine lines and wrinkles after your RADIESSE® treatment, and your results will continue to improve for six months to a year after your initial injections (results can be extended with periodic maintenance treatments). Complementary cosmetic skin treatments (ie. chemical peels, microdermabrasion and Botox/Dysport) can be performed in conjunction with RADIESSE® injections to amplify and maximize your skin rejuvenating results.


At Tribeca Medaesthetics, we make it a priority to keep abreast of the latest technological advances in the field of skin rejuvenation treatments, and our skillful physicians employ these cutting edge techniques to ensure safe procedures and beautifully natural-looking results.  We understand how valuable your time is, and will take care to ensure that your RADIESSE® treatment fits seamlessly into your schedule and leaves you with a more youthfully refreshed, revitalized appearance.
