Is Radiesse® More Expensive Than Restylane®?

Dermal fillers can be used for many purposes. They can restore facial volume to the cheeks, smooth lines and wrinkles, or plump your lips. Radiesse® and Restylane® are two dermal filler brands that work differently and provide different results. Despite their differences, you may not see a huge difference in cost between the two.

What are Radiesse® and Restylane®?

Radiesse® and Restylane® are dermal filler brands that treat concerns such as lines, wrinkles and volume loss. They use different materials to achieve their results. Both can be used for a range of purposes. 


Restylane® is an entire family of dermal fillers, including lip, cheek, and wrinkle treatments. Radiesse® is a single multi-purpose filler used to treat a variety of concerns but is not recommended for some areas, such as the lips. Radiesse® can also be used on the backs of the hands. Your Manhattan Aesthetics expert injector will choose the best filler for your needs. 

Is Radiesse® More Expensive Than Restylane®?

Dermal filler costs can range widely depending on several factors. Dermal filler prices are usually listed by the syringe, and you may need one or more syringes. Factors affecting your cost include:


  • The number of areas treated
  • The type of filler
  • The amount of filler needed
  • Your location
  • Your injector’s skill and experience


Your Manhattan Aesthetics expert injectors specialize in creating defined, natural-looking results. On average, Restylane® costs $684, and Radiesse costs $717 per syringe. Radiesse® is usually a bit more expensive than the Restylane® family. However, the price per syringe is not your final cost. We recommend a consultation to discuss what you can expect to pay.

How Do Radiesse® and Restylane® Work?

Restylane® dermal fillers address concerns, including the lips, cheeks, and many other areas. They use a material called hyaluronic acid. You may have heard of it as a skincare ingredient with the ability to attract and hold onto moisture. These fillers provide immediate results that typically last six to eighteen months. 


Radiesse® uses a material called calcium hydroxylapatite. Found naturally in bone, this material is contained in microspheres that provide a scaffold for new collagen formation. Instead of providing instant results, Radiesse® results can take a few months to develop. The results last longer than hyaluronic acid fillers, lasting two years or more. 

Is There Any Downtime With Radiesse® or Restylane®?

Your treatment session can take as little as fifteen minutes. Dermal fillers do not require any downtime. You can return to your usual activities immediately after your injections. You may notice small spots of redness, bruising, or swelling at the injection sites. You can reduce the chance of bruising by avoiding NSAIDs like ibuprofen or supplements that increase the risk of bleeding.
