Radiesse

 

 

What is Radiesse?

An FDA approved cosmetic medicine in 2006, Radiesse is the next-generation long lasting dermal filler for the correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds such as nasolabial folds, smile lines, facial fat loss. 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. 

How does Radiesse work?

Healthy young skin contains collagen that gives it volume, flexibility and strength. As part of the aging process, your own natural collagen breaks down, diminishing facial volume.

 

This loss of elasticity and volume results in the wrinkles, facial lines and skin laxity that rob your skin of its youthful appearance. Biocompatible RADIESSE wrinkle filler is proven to stimulate the growth of your own natural collagen that is lost in the aging process. once injected, Radiesse takes on the form of the tissue surrounding it and becomes fairly soft when it's injected into fat. This unique action not only provides volume replacement to wrinkles, folds and sunken depressions but also stimulates the body to produce new collagen in order to creat fullness and contours of a youthful, healthy appearance.

What areas can be treated with Radiesse?

Radiesse® dermal filler is indicated for the correction of moderate to severe folds and wrinkles, such as nasolabial folds, "smile lines", and deep "frown lines". It is also an alternative to plastic surgery to contour the jaw line, resulting in a smoother, firmer jaw line as well as to restore the natural contours of the cheeks. (cheek augmentation)


How long does the Radiesse result last?

Radiesse replenishes volume and stimulates the production of your own natural collagen with instant and sustained long lasting result, that lasts up to one year.


What are the side effects of Radiesse treatment?

Some of the more common but temporary Radiesse side effects include mild swelling and bruising and pain surrounding the site of injection, but this typically subsides after 24 hours with the help of ice. Patients should avoid excessive aspirin use to avoid extreme bruising with the treatment.
