RADIESSE® is a dual action dermal filler that adds volume to the face to diminish facial wrinkles and folds and stimulate your own collage to grow. Radiesse can fill out the hollows in cheeks and smooth wrinkles. It is a gel that contains microspheres of Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHA) in a gel base. It is biostimulatory, meaning once injected, it provides immediate volume and correction but continues to work by 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.
It contains lidocaine to significantly reduce injection pain. It is clinically proven to last a year or more. Radiesse is an excellent option to plump your skin for immediate smoothing results and a long lasting natural look.
Radiesse works well for smile lines (nasolabial folds) that run from the corners of your nose to the outside corners of your mouth. These lines can make you appear old, tired and unhappy. Plumping them can enhance your smile and create an overall appearance of youth.
Marionette lines run from the corners of your mouth down to your chin and can make your mouth turn downwards giving the appearance of being unhappy, angry or sad in addition to making you look older than you are. They are caused by ligaments attached to the skin from the underlying muscles. As we age, the ligaments stretch and the skin in this area begins to sag. This is why these lines are so frustrating.
Radiesse can also be used to treat the corners of the mouth and the pre-jowl sulcus located next to the chin, where the loss of volume can give the appearance of an angry face or scowl.
As of June 2015, Radiesse was and is first and only FDA approved filler for hand augmentation to correct volume loss in the back of the hands that give away your age. It restores volume and provides a natural appearance reducing the prominence of veins and tendons on the back of the hands.
Radiesse has been proven to:
- Immediately replenish lost volume and stimulate natural collagen production
- Provide results that last a year or more
- Provide high patient satisfaction.
Adverse effects are mild and short lived, including bruising, redness and swelling.
