How Radiesse Filler Works
We provide each patient with numbing cream and ice while mixing the Radiesse Filler with Lidocaine for enhanced comfort during each treatment. Please notify the medical staff if you have previous adverse reactions to Lidocaine prior to your treatment. After injecting Radiesse’s unique calcium-based micro-spheres, patients notice natural healthy growth of collagen while the experiencing immediate gratification of having a more youthful appearance. Radiesse injections are a convenient and simple treatment provided in less than 30 minutes.
We encourage patients to use arnica pre and post treatment to reduce bruising and swelling and recommend use of ice and Auroderm post treatment to provide optimal results with little to no social downtime. Some patients can experience mild swelling and bruising in the treated areas which can easily be covered with mineral makeup and typically resolve within 7 days of treatment.

“I had heard about Radiesse and wasn’t sure if it was the right time, or the right treatment for me, so I went to Dr. Shel Wellness and Medical Spa for a complimentary consultation. My concerns were that I didn’t want to feel pressured into a treatment that I wasn’t completely confident in and I wanted to look like myself after the treatment. My consultant was very knowledgeable, showed me several before and after pictures of the areas I wanted filled and I was very comfortable with doing the treatment that day. I have been back 1 time since my first injection and will not go anywhere else since Dr. Shel did such an amazing job of filling the areas I needed while still looking like myself…just a younger version.* ”
