What is Radiesse®?
Radiesse® is a volumizing injectable dermal filler used to smooth out facial lines, wrinkles and folds considered moderate to severe. It can also restore lost skin volume on the back of your hands.
If you have deep nasolabial folds, (the ones from the corners of the nose downward to the corners of the mouth), Radiesse® can be used to fill them in. It can also “fill in” areas like the hands, cheeks or along the jaw, where skin volume has been lost. Radiesse® can give shape and restore natural contours to all those areas.
What are the Benefits of Radiesse®?
Some of the benefits of Radiesse® include:
- Long-lasting results
- Immediate results
- Natural-looking results
- Radiesse® has been around longer than most other dermal fillers
- Requires fewer injections than many other fillers
How Does Radiesse® Work?
Radiesse® contains a synthetic form of the natural calcium we have in our bones and teeth. When the gel is injected into the skin, instant results are obtained as the gel “fills in” the targeted area.
Then, over time, the body absorbs the gel, and the microspheres of the synthetic calcium are left. These act as a scaffold, helping support the weak skin structure and triggering the body to produce new collagen.
Radiesse® treatment time is usually brief, lasting from 15 to 40 minutes. The FDA has approved Radiesse® to be mixed with lidocaine to minimize any pain or discomfort during the procedure. The gel is injected into the skin with an ultra-fine needle and the results can be seen almost immediately.
Is Radiesse® Right for Me?
Our patients have been highly satisfied with their results from Radiesse® treatments, but dermal fillers are not one-size-fits-all. Radiesse® is a good choice for most healthy men and women over the age of 21 who have deep lines and wrinkles they would like to have “filled in.”
During your initial consultation, you’ll discuss your cosmetic goals and we’ll go over your options and help you determine the best match for your unique situation, based on your medical history and desired results.
If you’re pregnant or breastfeeding, injectable dermal fillers should not be used. They should also be avoided if you’re on, or have recently used, blood thinners.
