    Radiesse is a FDA-approved cosmetic dermal filler that is used throughout
    the world to help diminish the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and facial folds.

    What is Radiesse?

    Radiesse is a biocompatible, non-toxic, non-allergenic filler that reduces the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and skin folds around the mouth and nose. For the first three months after the Radiesse treatment, it will plump up the skin and diminish the age lines by stimulating natural collagen growth. Radiesse is widely popular because of its effectiveness and long-lasting results of at least two years.

    How does Radiesse work?

    The Radiesse treatment works in two distinct ways. For the first three months, Radiesse injections act as a cosmetic filler that replenishes the skin’s youthful complexion. Secondly, the Radiesse injection will stimulate collagen production and encourage new tissue growth in and around the injection area. The injected content will act as a substitute collagen until the patient naturally produces their own collagen to replace the injected assistance.

    Radiesse is one of the safest products on the market for treating volume loss. It is the only dermal filler on the market in the U.S that has two FDA-approved facial uses. Radiesse is a useful treatment for anyone with deep wrinkles around the mouth or cheeks. It can also be used for people with scarring or skin depressions, as well as for those who want to enhance the size and shape of their lips. Additionally, Radiesse usually provides up to 80 percent improvement immediately after the treatment. Since Radiesse is temporary, treatments must be repeated over the years to maintain the benefit. Here are a list of reasons why you should choose Radiesse:

    • Immediately replenishes lost volume and stimulates the production of your own natural collagen
    • Is clinically proven to last over a year
    • The gel is absorbed and the body will metabolize it, leaving behind only your own natural collagen
    • FDA-approved injectable

    Radiesse is different from other dermal fillers in that it doesn’t require any allergy testing. The reason behind this is that the calcium hydroxylapatite contained in Radiesse are naturally occurring in the human body.

    Radiesse is a viable option to help provide a long-lasting natural look while immediately smoothing wrinkles.

    How is the Radiesse procedure performed?

    The Radiesse treatment process is a simple procedure that’s performed using a local anesthetic. Patients may experience minimal discomfort from the needle injection. Radiesse is a wrinkle filler used to plump up the skin. Radiesse is injected through a small needle and placed under the skin. Immediately after the procedure, this filler will add volume under the skin. Depending on the extent of the procedure, the treatment can take up to 15 minutes.

    • Radiesse is comprised of Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres suspended in an aqueous gel carrier.
    • Once injected, it provides immediate volume and correction to the face while stimulating the body to produce its own natural collagen.
    • Over time, the gel is absorbed and the body metabolizes the CaHA microspheres, leaving behind only your own natural collagen.

    Radiesse is not tested on animals and does not contain any products made from animals.

    Is there any downtime with the Radiesse procedure?

    Radiesse is a deeper injection, so it does have downtime which is basically on the same level as those of other fillers such as Juvederm and Restylane. Temporary redness, swelling and bruising can happen after a Radiesse injection. Usually, the bruising and swelling is mild and only last for the first few days after the treatment. It’s recommended to apply ice to the treated area to help the swelling go down more quickly. Additionally, a patient who has received Radiesse should minimize activities for the next 48 hours.

    You should not use Radiesse if you have an allergy to lidocaine

    What are the results of Radiesse?

    The natural results have been shown to last a year or more in many patients, making the treatment results both immediate and long-lasting. Results from Radiesse are long-lasting but are not permanent. Patients may choose to undergo retreatments in order to maintain their rejuvenated appearance.
