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 had the most wonderful massage yesterday at Pura Vida body & mind spa! For Mother’s Day my son’s bought me a gift certificate for an aromatherapy hot stone massage and it came with a free salt therapy session. I enjoyed both very much. I did the salt therapy first and found the room to be very relaxing with its dark atmosphere and relaxing music while breathing in the health benefits of the salt. Then, it was time to for my massage with Erika . She is absolutely wonderfu...l. Very personable, knowledgeable and professional. After we discussed any areas of concern for her to pay special attention to, she allowed me to customize the aromatherapy as well as the music options. The massage was one of the best I’ve had, and I have experienced several in which to compare to. The spa itself is absolutely beautiful and spotless. I will most definitely be returning again in the near future and highly recommend Erika. Thank you for making my first visit so memorable and enjoyable."- M.F. / Facebook / May 22, 2018

"Great experience from booking the appointment to being greeted once at the spa. Nice atmosphere and decor. Erika was my massage therapist and she was excellent; very professional, polite and got my back..... no pun intended! She exceeded my expectations since this was my first appointment with her. I enjoyed my massage session and benefited from it right away. Erika was able to understand my needs and customized the massage based on my requests. I will gladly return and request to have another session with her."- M.K. / Yelp / May 18, 2018
"Julie, Pura Vida’s owner, has certainly created a wonderful place to escape right here in Fleming Island. The staff is so friendly and spa is absolutely beautiful! I have only visited twice and feel at complete ease. The treatment rooms are cozy and clean and there is also a great space for gathering, which is used for health workshops and converted to a yoga studio on certain nights. Had an amazing massage from Erika! She was very attentive and listened to my needs. I have also enjoyed the salt room twice and can say it has noticeably helped my sinuses. Allergy sufferers take note! Sitting in that room for 30 minutes has done wonders and the best part is that it is relaxing too. I will definitely be returning soon."- T.D. / Facebook / May 14, 2018
"I just got home from a most wonderful and relaxing spa experience at puravida. The hydra facial made my skin feel very nice and rejuvenated and the salt room session was most relaxing. Thank you Julie and Amanda for a great experience. The mimosas and chocolate covered strawberries added such a special touch, not to mention leaving with flowers and a great smelling soap. Thank you again! Ladies, go treat yourselves. You will not regret a pampering session at pura vida spa."- T.V. / Facebook / May 11, 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.
