How does Radiesse® differ from other dermal fillers?
Radiesse® is a dermal filler that is made of tiny calcium-based microspheres which are suspended in a natural, water-based gel. These microspheres are similar to minerals that are found naturally in your body. Radiesse® provides robust lift in the areas beneath deep wrinkles and folds, diminishing their appearance for a more refreshed look. Unlike other dermal fillers, it continues to work with your body, stimulating the natural production of collagen for a more refreshed appearance that can last up to a year or more.
What is Radiesse® used for?
Radiesse® is an ideal option for diminishing signs of aging and volume loss in the following areas:
- Smile lines (nasolabial folds)
- Marionette lines
- Pre-jowl folds
- Back of the hands
What can I expect from a Radiesse® treatment?
Your procedure will begin with a consultation with our nurse injector who will work with you to devise a treatment plan based on your needs and goals. The treatment involves injecting Radiesse® under your skin, which takes approximately 15 to 30 minutes.
What results can I expect from a Radiesse® treatment?
Immediately upon injection, Radiesse® adds volume to wrinkles and folds to help smooth out the signs of aging. Not only does Radiesse® provide immediate correction, the natural, smooth results may last a year or longer due to the stimulation of your natural collagen.
Does Radiesse® treatment hurt?
Radiesse® contains a localized pain reliever, ensuring a comfortable experience for the patient.
Is there recovery time after a Radiesse® treatment?
Any injectable treatment may be accompanied by some minor redness, swelling or bruising. These effects are temporary and should not affect your normal activities, however it is good idea to schedule your treatment at least two weeks before any major social engagement. Most patients are able to resume regular activities immediately after the treatment.
