These days, there are several dermal fillers on the market for you to choose from for facial rejuvenation. The Radiesse dermal filler, offered by plastic surgeon Dr. William Wallace, is great for mild to moderate lines and wrinkles throughout the face and for reversing age-related volume loss in the hands. Patients who might not have a lot of time for repeat touch-ups prefer the long-lasting results (1 – 2 years) of Radiesse. Using calcium hydroxyapatite microspheres in a water-based gel, this injectable plumps and softens the look of your skin with a minimally invasive treatment. Radiesse has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to effectively and safely volumize your facial features. Radiesse can be used in tandem with other injectables (wrinkle relaxers and fillers) for a personalized treatment plan that restores your skin. Look younger and boost your confidence with Radiesse dermal fillers at Pura Vida Body & Mind Spa in Fleming Island, FL. Radiesse treatments are performed in Suite B downstairs from the Spa by Dr. William Wallace of Fleming Island Plastic Surgery.
Adults who are in good overall health and are concerned about mild to moderate lines and wrinkles are the best candidates for Radiesse injectable treatments. Radiesse can address smile lines, marionette lines, pre-jowl folds, chin wrinkles, and lines in the sides of the mouth. Radiesse is also approved to correct age-related volume loss in the hands to help them look smoother and younger looking. You should not have Radiesse injections if you are allergic to lidocaine or any of the other ingredients in the product. Make sure to tell Dr. Wallace about any allergies (severe or not) and any relevant medical history. If you are breastfeeding, pregnant, may be pregnant, or are considering pregnancy within several years, you should not use Radiesse treatments.

"I just spent my birthday here and loved it! Kathy was very accommodating. I had an amazing hydrafacial with Melissa followed by massage with Erika who was very responsive and worked out the kinks in my neck. Ending with relaxation in the salt room. Did I mention the interior is absolutely beautiful. Also the perfect temperature not too cold. I'm considering a membership and I don't usually treat myself!"- K.T. / Facebook / Sep 04, 2018

Plan Your Procedure
what to expect
Radiesse dermal injections take place in one of the treatment rooms at PuraVida about 30 – 60 minutes after your consultation. To begin the treatment, you will sit comfortably while the areas of injection will be cleaned and marked. Most patients feel mild discomfort during their procedure at the initial prick of the needle, but if requested, a numbing cream can be used on the injection sites. The dosage of Radiesse, chosen at your personalized treatment planning session, will be prepared in an ultra-fine syringe. The marked injection sites will guide Dr. Wallace as he carefully injects the dermal injections into the face. Once the injections are finished, a cold compress may be applied to help minimize swelling and bruising.
After your Radiesse treatment, you may see slight redness, swelling, and bruising. This is common and should only last for about 5 – 10 days. These side effects can usually be covered with makeup. If the side effects last longer or seem excessive, please do not hesitate to call our office. Most patients see some results right away with better results developing over time. Your face should appear younger, softer, and more radiant. Radiesse tends to last longer than some of the other fillers, with results for up to 1 – 2 years. You should talk to Dr. Wallace during your consultation about when to schedule your next treatment to maintain your results.
