What is Radiesse?
There are several injectable wrinkle treatments on the market for you to use to get a more youthful, refreshed appearance. The Radiesse dermal filler offered by Provo, UT board-certified physician Dr. Stuart B. Porter is wonderful for mild-to-moderate wrinkles and lines on the face, and for eliminating volume loss on the hands. Patients who might not have time for repeat appointments love the lasting results of Radiesse (1 – 2 years).
Using microspheres of calcium hydroxyapatite in a water-based gel, this injectable fills and smooths the look of your skin without invasive surgery. Radiesse will safely and effectively contour your facial features. It may be used with other injectables (wrinkle relaxers and fillers) for a personalized treatment plan. Look several years younger and improve your confidence with Radiesse injectable wrinkle fillers at Xage Medical Spa in Provo, UT.

Men and women who are in good health and have mild-to-moderate wrinkles and lines are the best patients for Radiesse injectable treatments. It can address smile lines, marionette lines, pre-jowl folds, chin wrinkles, and lines that form in the edges of the lips. Radiesse is also approved to treat age-related volume loss on the top of the hands to help them look fuller and younger.

"I just finished my 3rd and last Femilift treatment a week and half ago. For all you women that have a weakening bladder, I STONGLY recommend this treatment. I had a hysterectomy, including removal of my cervix about 12 years ago. Since I no longer have those parts to help keep things in their place, I gradually noticed several changes. I was that woman that couldn’t multitask with a sneeze, cough, laugh or even clear my throat while walking. I am proud to report that this is no longer a problem. Dr. Porter recommended this procedure and now here I am, multitasking like a pro. I noticed some improvement a couple weeks after the first treatment, the most improvement after the second treatment and the last treatment just sealed the deal, literally. An unexpected outcome is one I am super happy about. I have been plagued with recurring bladder infections for years. I haven’t had a bladder infection since the first treatment 3 months ago. Though I am purely speculating, I feel this is directly related to the Femilift treatments. It makes sense. Before the treatments, I had a weak sense of when my bladder was full, therefore my bladder would be full for awhile before I would get the intense urge. After several times, my bladder would just be irritated and I would end up with an infection. I lived on AZO and cranberry to try and manage some comfort. Now, my pelvic floor is stronger and I can can sense my full bladder sooner, which I now visit the restroom way more often. At first this was annoying, but now that I realize I am sensing things like I should and I haven’t had anymore irritation or infections, I’ll take it. Now ladies, and partners of those ladies considering Femilift, let’s talk sex. Since this treatment involves a laser inserted into the vagina, and it strengthens and tightens the urethra, it makes sense that it tightens the vagina as well. Big bonus. Not only have I noticed tightening, but more lubrication and sensitivity (the good kind, not the painful kind). If I just scared you away because I mentioned something being inserted into your vagina and then a laser zapping away, bear with me. 1. The laser has a comfortable width. 2. It has a sheath cover that is only yours and kept on site so you don’t have to remember to bring it with you. 3. The only time you feel any discomfort is when the they are treating the opening of the vagina since there are many more nerve endings there. For me this felt like an intense moment during a bladder infection, but the sensation immediately ceased when the treatment was over. 4. The entirety of each treatment only takes about 10 minutes. The consult and prep takes more time than the actual treatment. Finally, let’s talk about the cost. This isn’t covered by insurance, but when compared to the downtime, recovery and risk of infection of surgery, this is way worth it. Xage Medical spa was offering a promotion at the time of my consultation, which I was able to get a discount. But, I would have paid full price. The staff was very welcoming, knowledgeable and accommodating. They know what they are doing and how to provide a great experience and results."- T.H. / Google / Dec 30, 2019

Our Radiesse Injection Technique
Radiesse dermal injections take place in one of the treatment rooms at Xage Medical Spa in around 30 – 60 minutes. You can have your first injections right after your consultation. To begin the treatment, you will sit in a relaxed position while the areas of injection are cleaned and marked. Most patients feel mild discomfort throughout the treatment at the first stick, but if needed, a numbing agent can be used on the injection sites. The dosage of Radiesse, determined at your consultation, will be placed in a fine needle. The marked injection sites will help guide Dr. Porter to carefully administer Radiesse into the face. Once the treatment is complete, a cold compress can be held to the treated areas to minimize bruising and swelling.
Radiesse Who Is An Ideal Candidate?
Following your Radiesse injection, you may see slight swelling, redness, and bruising. This is common and should only last for about 5 – 10 days. These side effects can usually be camouflaged with makeup. If the bruising, swelling, or redness lasts longer or if you are concerned, please contact Xage Medical Spa. Most patients see visible results immediately with better results appearing over time. Your face should look younger, softer, and lifted. Radiesse tends to last longer compared to other dermal fillers — about 1 – 2 years. You can talk to Dr. Porter during your appointment about how soon to schedule your next treatment to touch up your results.
