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, 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.Marisa remembered me from 6 yrs ago when I went for consultation and she and her team with Dr.Angela and Erin put their best foot forward to meet my expectations. The Northside hospital never fails to exceed its exceptional hospitality that makes you forget your pain and fears ... yes they give "good stuff" that works making it agony free during and after procedure. From lab work, covid test, preop preparation (my nurses were the D team 😀) Comfort and care means alot. I had seen 2 other doctors for consultation in different states but you always stood out May God bless the works of your hands and entire team."- W.K. / Facebook / Jan 24, 2021

"So Relieved! - After having breast implants for 11 years that were way too large for me I wanted them out! Dr. Laurence was great with answering all of my questions about explanting and full capsulectomy. I told her I wanted to breastfeed in the future so I didn't want a lift. She agreed that explant and capsulectomy were my best course of action and also that I had plenty of my own breast tissue so I shouldn't worry about my size.At two weeks post op, she was definitely right! I honestly had no idea what I would look like without implants, but I absolutely love my natural size. The reason I got them originally was to make them more even and symmetrical. But even putting in two different sized implants, they still weren't totally the same. I've learned now that is totally okay! I love my two different boobs.Marisa Lawrence and the rest of her staff were all amazing. Everyone in the office was super kind and welcoming. I will totally recommend Dr. Lawrence to people I know."- A. / RealSelf / Dec 17, 2020
"I have been seeing Dr. Lawrence for different issues -- some cosmetic and some not. I have always been treated with empathy and caring. I cannot say enough good things about her staff, as they are attentive to your needs and wellness. Dr. Lawrence is a true artist in her field. I highly recommend Dr. Lawrence."- M.G. / Yelp / Dec 11, 2020
"Dr. Lawrence did my first breast cancer reconstruction 18 years ago and the results were amazing. Fast forward to a second breast cancer diagnosis and mastectomy. Due to insurance, I saw a former colleague of hers and I am so disappointed with the results. Dr. Lawrence is the best!"- M.K. / Yelp / Nov 10, 2020
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.

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.
