"Dr. Dauwe and his staff are like a dream team! I legit leave wanting to be friends with his staff they are all so adorable. Seriously though, any type of surgery is so scary and they make the experience so comfortable. I felt like he listened to what I wanted and was honest with what was going to be realistic with my body type. I was referred by Dr.Dauwe by a few of my clients and am so thankful I chose him to do my procedure. If you’re in the Dallas area I wouldn’t recommend anyone else. Truly grateful to have had such an amazing experience! Thank you Dr. Dauwe for everything!"- T.C. / Google / Apr 30, 2019

"Just had my 6 week post op with Dr. Dauwe yesterday and I cannot stress enough how happy I am with my results from my breast reduction surgery. All the scarring is healthy and I healed really quickly. I went back to work the next week (I have an office job) and was able to do my normal routine. Dr. Dauwe and his team (Julie and Sara) have been so gracious with me and my concerns. They have been very helpful when I have questions. Julie and Sara are the kindest people ever and I love seeing their faces every time I come in. Seriously love this team and I am so happy with my results."- J.S. / Google / Jul 19, 2019
Radiesse wrinkle injections are performed in a treatment room at Phillip Dauwe, M.D. Plastic Surgery in around 30 – 60 minutes once you have completed your consultation. To start the procedure, you will lay in a relaxed position as the injection sites are cleaned and marked. Many patients feel mild discomfort throughout the procedure at the first prick, but if preferred, a topical anesthetic may be spread on the treatment sites. The pre-marked site of injection will help Dr. Dauwe to carefully administer Radiesse into the needed areas. As soon as the treatment is done, a cold compress will be held to the treated areas to reduce bruising and swelling.
What to Expect
Following your Radiesse injection, you may have mild redness, swelling, and bruising. This is normal and should last less than a week. These side effects may typically be camouflaged with make-up. If the bruising, swelling, or redness lasts longer than ten days or if you are concerned, please contact Phillip Dauwe, M.D. Plastic Surgery. Many patients have visible results immediately after the treatment with final results apparent after the swelling resolves. Your face will look softer and younger. Radiesse typically lasts longer compared to other dermal fillers — about 1 – 2 years. You can talk to Dr. Phillip Dauwe at your appointment about how soon to get your next injection to touch up your results.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does Radiesse cost?
The cost of Radiesse is dependent on the number of syringes needed to achieve your desired outcome. During your consultation at our practice, we will discuss your expected results and determine the amount needed to achieve them. We will also discuss your out-of-pocket costs for your treatment.
How does Radiesse compare to other fillers?
Fillers such as Radiesse are considered temporary, even though the results may last up to a full year. Common filler procedures include collagen, calcium hydroxyapatite, hyaluronic acid, polylactic acid, and the heaviest of the fillers, PMMA. Radiesse is the only dermal filler composed of calcium-based microspheres, which are comparable to hyaluronic acid injectable fillers in terms of their duration of results. During your consultation, we will discuss the various fillers and evaluate your facial tone, laxity, and volume levels to help you decide which filler may be the best choice for you.
What are the possible side effects of Radiesse?
Severe and/or abnormal side effects are rare with Radiesse. Immediately following treatment, patients may experience mild redness, bruising, numbness, and/or itching. These are temporary side effects that usually disappear within a day or two.
What other procedures can I combine with Radiesse?
Radiesse injections can be performed in combination with other injectable treatments to help you achieve your ideal results. Many patients combine dermal fillers such as Radiesse with BOTOX or other muscle relaxants to create an overall younger-looking appearance. Talk to your injector during your consultation to learn more about other procedures that can be combined with Radiesse.
Are Radiesse injections painful?
Typically, patients use topical numbing cream prior to their injection treatment, and this alleviates any significant discomfort. Most patients only experience slight discomfort during the actual injections.
