Koger Cosmetic Clinic & Medspa offers Radiesse® for men and women in Palm Beach County, including West Palm Beach, Vero Beach, Wellington, and the surrounding areas of Florida.
Injectable dermal fillers are a great alternative to plastic surgery and can be incredibly effective in combating the effects of aging in the skin. Radiesse® is designed to target deep wrinkles and fill them from the inside. It can provide patients with youthful, smoother skin that is free of wrinkles and lines. Radiesse® works by injecting calcium hydroxylapatite, which is produced within our bodies. This formula is FDA-approved and works by increasing the natural production of collagen, which plumps up the skin and leaves it feeling supple but firm.
About Radiesse® treatments
Radiesse® treatments are quick and virtually painless. A local anesthetic can be administered to prevent any discomfort, but most patients don’t need it. A thin, fine gauge needle is used to deliver the dermal gel into the desired areas. Multiple treatments may be required. The process can take between 20 to 60 minutes, depending on the size of the area being treated. Patients are free to return to their day immediately following treatment.
Benefits of Radiesse®
If you are displeased with the appearance of deep lines and creases in your face, consider Radiesse® dermal injections. Some of the excellent benefits include:
- Visible reduction of moderate to severe wrinkles and creases

- A safe, minimally invasive alternative to plastic surgery
- Naturally occurring ingredients
- Little to no downtime required
- Low risk of allergic reaction
Candidates for Radiesse®
Radiesse® is used to treat moderate to severe lines or wrinkles in the face. If you have crow’s feet, marionette lines, smoker lines, brow lines, or other visible creases in your face, you may be a candidate for Radiesse®. Ideal patients are in good general health and have realistic goals and expectations.
After your Radiesse® treatment
There is no required recovery time following Radiesse® injections. Strenuous activity should be avoided for 24 hours after treatments. Radiesse® works by delivering calcium hydroxylapatite, which helps to increase volume and enhance the contour of your skin. The formula stimulates collagen production that develops over time to maintain elasticity as time passes. With proper care, the results can last up to two years.
Paying for your Radiesse® treatment
The cost of Radiesse® injections is based on several factors that are determined during the consultation. We can provide pricing and information about our financing options after the consultation.
