Radiesse® is a non-surgical injectable filler treatment used to improve facial depressions and smooth away moderate and deep wrinkles. It can also restore volume to the backs of the hands for a more youthful appearance. Dr. Cap Lesesne is a board-certified plastic surgeon and is regarded as a top provider of Radiesse® in NYC.
How Does Radiesse® Work?
The active ingredient of Radiesse® is calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA). It is a unique dermal filler because of its ability to stimulate collagen production over time and create an instant supportive foundation for improved skin strength.
Once injected, Radiesse® immediately produces noticeable results. The increased collagen production allows for results that continue to last even after the CaHA microspheres are safely and naturally absorbed by the body. Results last 12 to 15 months or more.
Am I a Good Candidate for Radiesse®?
The aging-related slowdown of natural collagen production affects everyone. The skin is also subjected to environmental factors such as the sun’s rays and pollution. As a result, the skin is prone to developing several signs of aging.
Radiesse® reduces the appearance of the following skin issues:
- The nasolabial folds, which extend from the outside corners of the mouth to the sides of the nose
- Marionette lines, which extend downwards diagonally from the corners of the mouth
- Acne scars
- Volume loss in areas like the cheeks and the backs of the hands
The doctor will review your medical history during your appointment to ensure that this injectable is safe for you.
I recently had my procedure done by Dr. Lesesne. It’s been absolutely amazing experience with him and everyone in the office. Unlike other plastic surgeons in the city, he was willing to listen my list of concerns/questions and spend time explaining what would be the be the best result. The surgery and recovery were so flawless resulting in the best possibly way. Thank you Dr. Lesesne and Diane.

What to Expect During a Radiesse® Treatment Session
The treatment usually takes less than an hour to complete. The treatment areas will be swabbed with an antiseptic, and a local anesthetic may be used for additional comfort if preferred.
An ultra-fine needle is then used to inject Radiesse® into the treatment areas. Patients’ reported experiences indicate very minimal discomfort, if any.
After Your Radiesse® Session
There is no downtime or recovery period with this procedure; patients are back to their regular routine the following day. Temporary post-treatment effects such as redness or irritation resolve quickly, typically within less than 24 hours of treatment for most patients.
How Much Does Radiesse® Cost?
The cost of Radiesse® varies and is determined by factors like the number of injections and the amount of Radiesse® used. The doctor will customize each patient’s treatment plan to meet their goals, and your consultation for treatment will include detailed price information.
