Radiesse Filler in Princeton, NJ

What Can Radiesse Filler Do for Me?

Radiesse is an FDA-approved treatment unique in its ability to act as a biostimulator and facial contouring filler. As a dynamic filler, Radiesse can plump up the skin and encourage collagen production for natural-looking, long-lasting results.

The injectable is made with a combination of synthetic calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres and a gel solution. The CaHA replaces lost collagen, while the gel carrier helps to spread the formula evenly across the skin’s surface. Radiesse can provide results that last up to a year or longer with multiple treatments, making it a popular choice for patients who want to achieve a younger-looking complexion.

  • Bioremodeling stimulates new hyaluronic acid, collagen, and elastin for long-term effects.
  • This concentrated, silky formulation is highly spreadable for crepey, lax skin.
  • Results improve over time for a refreshed, natural-looking appearance.


Radiesse As a Biostimulator

Radiesse is an FDA-approved biostimulator, promoting collagen production in the skin.
It can effectively address various signs of aging, such as:

  • Wrinkles in the mid and lower face
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Facial volume loss
  • Temple volume loss
  • Marionette lines
  • Chin wrinkles
  • Neck and crepey neck skin
  • Décolleté wrinkles and crepey skin
  • Hand wrinkles

By stimulating collagen production, Radiesse helps restore a youthful appearance by smoothing wrinkles and enhancing skin texture. It offers natural-looking and long-lasting results, supporting the body’s own collagen-building process.

Radiesse for Facial Contouring

Radiesse can also be used as a facial contouring filler, enhancing and sculpting specific areas of the face for a more defined look.

Common facial contouring treatments with Radiesse include:

  • Chin augmentation for enhanced definition
  • Cheek contouring to lift and define the cheekbones
  • Jawline contouring for a sharper, more defined jawline
  • Facial sculpting to improve symmetry and aesthetics
  • Temple augmentation to correct temple hollows

These contouring treatments use Radiesse’s unique properties to add volume and structure to specific areas, resulting in enhanced facial balance and definition. The results of Radiesse contouring treatments are immediate and can last for a significant duration, providing a more sculpted and youthful appearance.

Biostimulators vs. Volume-Enhancing Fillers


Volume-Enhancing Fillers

Biostimulators boost collagen production over time to enhance the skin’s elasticity and preserve its youthful structure.

These facial contouring fillers, usually made with hyaluronic acid, increase volume, shape and define facial contours, and enhance the skin’s dermal structure.
















Radiesse and Regenerative Aesthetics

Skin aging is a complex process that changes the dermal structure at a cellular level. While Radiesse is an effective treatment to stimulate collagen and elastin production for firmer, younger-looking skin, combining this biostimulator with regenerative techniques can amplify its effects.

How Regenerative Techniques Optimize Radiesse

Regenerative aesthetics can take your skin to the next level of rejuvenation in several ways:

Amplified Results: Radiesse works synergistically with regenerative methods to supercharge the production of vital skin components. This intensified production translates to firmer, more hydrated, and elastic skin.

Reviving Dermal Youth: As we age, the skin’s structural integrity weakens, resulting in sagging and unevenness. Regenerative techniques reawaken fibroblasts, effectively restoring the skin’s support structure. Radiesse complements this by providing a scaffold for the newly produced collagen and hyaluronic acid to flourish, resulting in a more youthful appearance.

Countering Aging Enzymes: Skin-degrading enzymes accompany the natural aging process, but regenerative techniques help mitigate the impact of these enzymes, promoting healthier and more resilient skin when combined with Radiesse.

Long-Lasting Rejuvenation: This combined approach ensures that your skin maintains its rejuvenated state for an extended period.

Radiesse with PRP or PRF

Dr. Brunner can combine Radiesse with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) or platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) to rejuvenate the face, neck, chest, and hands. Radiesse with PRP/PRF uses a patient’s own blood to stimulate collagen and enhance the filler’s effectiveness. PRP is a material in the blood that contains growth factors and proteins that can help rejuvenate the skin for a firmer, more youthful appearance.

Radiesse with PRP offers many benefits, including:

  • Enhanced collagen production
  • Improved skin quality
  • Reduced fine lines, wrinkles, and crepey skin
  • Minimal risk of allergic reactions (since PRP is a natural blood component)
  • Natural-looking results
  • Gradual improvements over time

    Radiesse vs Juvederm Voluma

    While Radiesse and Juvederm Voluma are both dermal fillers, they work in different ways. Juvdeder Voluma delivers immediate results that fade as the filler breaks down. Radiesse also provides results quickly, but the collagen it produces can take several weeks to appear. While full results may take longer, they may also last longer.
