Today, there are multiple injectable wrinkle treatments on the market for you to use to get a more youthful, refreshed appearance. The Radiesse injectable wrinkle treatment, offered by fellowship-trained and double board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Marisa Lawrence, is great for mild to moderate lines and wrinkles throughout the face, and for fixing age-related volume loss in the hands. Women and men who might not have a lot of time for repeat appointments appreciate the long-lasting results (1 – 2 years) of Radiesse. Using calcium hydroxyapatite microspheres in a water-based gel, this injectable plumps and softens the look of your skin without the time and expense of surgery. Radiesse has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to safely and effectively contour your facial features. It can be used in tandem with other injectables (wrinkle relaxers and fillers) for a unique procedure plan that restores your skin. Look refreshed and boost your confidence with Radiesse injectable wrinkle treatments at Marisa Lawrence Plastic Surgery in Atlanta or Alpharetta, GA.
Women and men who are in good health and want to correct their mild to moderate wrinkles and lines are ideal candidates for Radiesse injectable treatments. It can improve smile lines, marionette lines, pre-jowl folds, chin wrinkles, and lines on the edges of the mouth. Radiesse is also designed to treat age-related volume loss in the hands to help them appear fuller and younger looking. You should not have this injection if you are allergic to lidocaine or any ingredients in the product. Make sure to tell Dr. Lawrence about any allergies (severe or not) and your medical history. If you are breastfeeding, pregnant, may be pregnant, or are considering pregnancy within 1 – 2 years, you should not use Radiesse treatments.
"Dr. Lawrence truly has the skills of a surgeon but the touch of a woman. So knowledgeable and kind. I was particularly impressed by how well she listened. She was not in a rush like most doctors. She sat and listened to me. I felt respected. She's the best!"- L.B. / Yelp / Jun 14, 2019

"Best Decision I’ve Ever Made - I was 12 years old the first time I saw my facial profile in a picture. I gasped at my “beak” which I felt was much too large for my face. I was self-conscious about my dorsal hump and bulbous tip ever since. I’ve always angled my face a certain way to minimize my insecurity about my nose when talking to people in person, taking pictures, etc. It consumed my life. I had a single consultation with Dr.Lawrence and knew she was the surgeon for me. The entire staff is professional and friendly, which immediately put me at ease. Dr.Lawrence addressed correcting the parts of my nose I was insecure about to increase facial balance. She is a double board certified and fellowship trained surgeon, so I was confident in her skill and intuition. My operation was seamless, my recovery was shockingly easy, and Dr.Lawrence has been there every step of the way throughout my recovery. I am only 4 months post-op and I’m IN LOVE with the results of my rhinoplasty! I look balanced and so natural. I’m also wearing less makeup since my procedure. My only regret is not having the rhinoplasty sooner! It looks even better than I imagined. My confidence has been restored. I feel like ME for the first time in my adult life. I would recommend Dr.Lawrence to anyone considering plastic surgery. I am forever grateful!"- Anonymous / Vitals / Apr 26, 2019
"I had breast implant removal surgery (capsule removed) about a month ago and am very pleased with the results. Dct. Lawrence, office staff, and surgery location staff were all very kind, gentle, professional & detailed. A++"- C.U. / Facebook / Apr 26, 2019
Radiesse wrinkle injections take place in one of the treatment rooms at Marisa Lawrence Plastic Surgery in about 30 – 60 minutes after the consultation. To start the procedure, you will lay comfortably while the areas of injection will be cleaned and marked. Most patients feel tolerable discomfort during their treatment at the initial prick, but if preferred, a local anesthetic may be spread on the injection sites. The dosage of Radiesse, determined at your personalized treatment planning session, will be prepared in an ultra-fine syringe. The marked injection sites will help the injector to carefully administer Radiesse into the needed areas. As soon as the procedure is done, a cold compress will be applied to help reduce swelling and bruising.
What to Expect
After your Radiesse injection, you may see mild swelling, bruising, and redness. This is common and should only last for about 5 – 10 days. These side effects can usually be camouflaged with makeup. If the side effects last longer or seem excessive, please do not hesitate to call Marisa Lawrence Plastic Surgery. Most patients see some results minutes after the treatment with better results developing over time. Your face should appear younger, softer, and lifted. Radiesse tends to last longer than some of the other fillers — about 1 – 2 years. You should talk to Dr. Lawrence during your consultation about when to schedule your next treatment to maintain your results.
Frequently Asked Questions

With these details, we will be able to discuss your out-of-pocket costs.
How does Radiesse compare to other fillers?

What are the possible side effects of Radiesse?
Side effects from Radiesse are extremely rare. However, immediately following treatment, it is not uncommon for patients to experience mild redness, bruising, numbness, and/or itching. These are temporary and mild side effects that typically resolve on their own in a day or two.
What other procedures can I combine with Radiesse?
Many patients combine Radiesse with BOTOX or other muscle relaxants for a smooth, youthful look. Speak with our aesthetician during your consultation to learn more about surgical and nonsurgical procedures that complement Radiesse.
Are Radiesse injections painful?
Typically, Radiesse is only mildly uncomfortable. Patients do not generally need numbing medications prior to their injection treatment. However, a local anesthetic is available if you are concerned about pain.
