Radiesse in Phoenix, AZ
Severe lines and creases can affect your confidence, but you can feel better about your appearance with Radiesse® treatments at Arizona Facial Plastics, PC. Our board-certified ENT and facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon, Dr. Farhan Taghizadeh, offers Radiesse® treatments for men and women who live in and around Phoenix, Scottsdale, Paradise Valley and the surrounding communities of Arizona.
What is Radiesse®?
Radiesse® is an injectable dermal filler that softens lines and creases by increasing the collagen in your skin. Collagen is a natural substance that provides your skin with an underlying support structure that prevents lines and wrinkles. As we get older, our bodies produce less collagen, and our skin loses the crucial collagen network. Over time, the skin essentially “collapses,” and the result is lines, wrinkles, and creases.
Benefits of Radiesse®
Men and women prefer Radiesse® as their anti-aging treatment because the product:
- Requires no incisions, extensive surgery, downtime or recovery
- Contains collagen that is natural to your body
- Treats more severe wrinkles and creases
- Improves skin volume and elasticity
- Provides results for up to two years
What Can I Expect from Radiesse®?
The gel formulation of Radiesse® contains tiny microspheres that work as an underlying structure in the deep layers of skin where severe creases and wrinkles originate. The product is administered with a very fine needle that is tolerable by most patients, but the depth of the injections may cause some discomfort. The gel does contain lidocaine to enhance patient comfort, and Dr. Taghizadeh may also apply a numbing cream to your skin.
How Radiesse® Differ from Other Types of Injectable Fillers?
The primary difference between Radiesse® and other injectable fillers is that Radiesse® is specifically designed to treat severe wrinkles and creases. With Radiesse®, patients with more advanced signs of aging have an alternative to cosmetic surgery to look and feel younger.
Recovery from Radiesse®
The treatment area may feel tender, and you may also have some minor bruising and swelling. These symptoms can be managed with ice packs and non-prescription pain medications. After 48 to 72 hours, the symptoms should be fully resolved.
Where Can Radiesse® Be Applied?
Dr. Taghizadeh recommends Radiesse® for treating:
- Nasolabial folds
- Frown lines
- Marionette lines
Will Everyone Benefit from Radiesse®?
Clinical studies have shown that Radiesse® is a safe and effective alternative to surgery. Based on his expertise with cosmetic treatments and injectable fillers, Dr. Taghizadeh may recommend another product to achieve the desired results.
How Much Does Radiesse® Cost in Phoenix?

If you are interested in financing, you can apply through Prosper® Healthcare Lending and CareCredit®.
Collagen is important for skin elasticity and texture, but as we get older, our bodies produce less collagen, resulting in deep lines and creases that add years to how we look. At Arizona Facial Plastics, PC, we offer Radiesse®, an injectable dermal filler that contains collagen to help you look younger.
