Treatment overview

Composed of microspheres in a biocompatible gel, Radiesse is made from the same minerals found in our bones, so it carries little risk of allergic reaction.

Radiesse can be used on many areas of the body including the nasolabial folds, temples and depressed scars and oral commissures.


RADIESSE candidates commonly seek treatment for prominent smile lines and marionette lines and it is an effective treatment for:

Frown Lines

Bridge or Nasal Augmentation

Benefits of Radiesse

Radiesse enhances skin quality. The procedure provides a natural solution to reduce unwanted wrinkles around the nose and mouth. In addition, it restores lost volume to your facial features and hands. After receiving treatment, you gain tighter, more youthful skin. The filler offers a way to turn back time and draw control of the aging process. While it cannot eliminate severe wrinkles, this dermal filler induces a significant difference for individuals who need to stimulate collagen production.

The medical professionals at RL Center for Cosmetic Surgery & Medspa commonly inject the face and hands with Radiesse with flawless results.

How it Works

The Consultation

At RL Center for Cosmetic Surgery & Medspa, each initial patient consultation is different.

    • Depending on your needs, desired treatments, areas of concern, and simply who you are as a patient, we will schedule you with an actual treatment provider to discuss your goals, budget, and more. During this appointment, we will go through before & after photos, your medical history, and any questions you might have. Only then can we make a recommendation for which procedures or treatments may be right for you and why. We will be sure to educate you on how the treatments work, including what to expect during and afterward.

      A typical consultation lasts about 40 minutes and is free of charge for all aesthetic treatments, including Radiesse®. At the end of your consultation, you will leave our office in Vernon Hills with a thorough, personalized treatment plan. And when you’re ready, we’ll schedule your first treatment session.

The Procedure

During your Radiesse appointment, we will ensure your total comfort in a clean, comfortable, and private treatment room.

This treatment is relatively quick and minimally invasive, with most patients less than an hour at our office once the topical numbing cream has been applied

  • Though Radiesse injections are a widely popular procedure, they still require a high level of skill and experience in order to get the longest lasting, most natural results.

The Recovery

After your Radiesse injections, you may experience redness and swelling, bruising may also be visible.

You may experience tenderness at injection site for a few days after your treatment. Depending upon the areas treated and products used, you may feel “firmness” in the treated areas for 1 to 2 weeks after treatment.

I have been seeing Jackie for about six months or so now. She is trained in so many services and always suggests what she feels will be best for my skin. Jackie is a sweetheart and always checks on me after any treatment I get done to see how I’m doing, which I have never experienced anywhere else before, with anyone else before. I’ve walked in so many times before feeling insecure, but Jackie never lets me walk out without telling me I’m beautiful. I’ve seen so much improvement in my skin since seeing Jackie, and I am grateful to her and Ritacca.
I don’t think I could love an aesthetician more than I love Jen! I have worked in the plastic surgery/aesthetic industry for many years and i am yet to meet someone more knowledgeable, kind, and talented than Jen Greco. I was referred to her by a friend and it has been a saving grace for my skin. From hydrafacial when I was pregnant to microderm, peels, and laser when I’m not – she does it all! And she truly listens and helps to create an individual plan for you based on your needs and budget. If you haven’t been to Jen yet…run, don’t walk! There’s a reason she books up! Jen, thanks for giving me so much confidence in my skin!
