If you want to enhance your facial appearance by eliminating wrinkles and restoring the skin’s natural glow, Radiesse® may be right for you. Over time, the skin’s collagen is depleted and natural elasticity weakened, causing lines and wrinkles to form. However, now there is a solution. Dr. Ronald Caniglia administers Radiesse® injections within our pleasant Scottsdale, Arizona facility to replace lost volume to the skin for a fresh, youthful look. The procedure is quick and simple, and patients can enjoy gorgeous, rejuvenated facial skin for up to a full year, sometimes longer.

In many cases, results are instantly noticeable and continue to improve over time. Patients can return to work or regular activities after leaving our practice.
During your initial consultation, Dr. Caniglia will meet with you to determine whether you are a good candidate for Radiesse® injections. Ideal candidates are men and women, typically between the ages of 35 and 60, who wish to erase moderate to deep wrinkles or folds that exist around the mouth, including the nasolabial folds, also referred to as smile lines.
Additionally, Radiesse® injections can be used to improve the contours of the face; for example, they can be used to add volume to the cheeks or jowls that are becoming slack with age. Patients choose Radiesse® because it is a non-surgical procedure, requires no downtime, and offers long lasting, instant results.
Patients may experience some minor swelling, bruising, or discomfort immediately following the procedure; however, symptoms generally subside after one to three days. Patients can also take over-the-counter pain medication to alleviate any irritation.
There are many benefits of Radiesse®, which include:
There are very few risks associated with Radiesse®. In rare cases patients may notice lumps forming where the injections were administered. However, this can be corrected with massage or additional touch-up injections. If patients experience extreme pain, they should contact Dr. Caniglia immediately.
If you are seeking a quick, easy way to achieve beautiful, youthful facial skin, look no further. Dr. Caniglia has had the pleasure of helping many patients achieve their desired facial appearance with injectable treatments. To learn more about Radiesse®, contact our Scottsdale practice today.
