Radiesse is a next generation cosmetic dermal filler that is setting a new standard for the correction of facial lines and wrinkles, including nasolabial folds, smile lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth.
Radiesse is made of unique calcium-based microspheres suspended in a natural gel that is injected into the skin through a simple, safe and minimally invasive procedure. The tiny calcium-based microspheres form a “scaffold” to support and stimulate the growth of your own collagen to create a natural, full, youthful look. By using your body’s ability to grow collagen, Radiesse produces a more natural looking result for a rested, healthy, youthful appearance – that still looks like you.
The Radiesse microspheres will continue to provide the support and structure for your body to grow new collagen until the microspheres are safely and naturally absorbed into your body. With Radiesse, your results start out great and continue to get better with time.
During treatment, Radiesse is injected into the skin through a simple, safe, quick, and minimally invasive procedure. With the use of a local anesthetic, Radiesse treatments have little to no downtime and most patients returning to normal activities soon after treatment. Normal, injection-related reactions such as mild irritation, edema, swelling, itching, discoloration, or tenderness at the injection site may occur. These conditions typically resolve quickly on their own.
Most patients achieve their desired result after just one treatment. While treatment results are relatively long-lasting, they are not permanent. Over time the tiny calcium-based microspheres gradually break down into basic calcium and phosphate ions which are safely and naturally absorbed into your body, leaving your own collagen in their place. Therefore, we might recommend a touch-up treatment to maintain your results.
