What is Radiesse®?
Rather than hyaluronic acid, Radiesse® is made from calcium based microspheres suspended in a water based gel. Radiesse® provides both immediate and extended results because it stimulates production of collagen and encourages tissue regeneration. This cosmetic filler is for patients with very well defined wrinkles or folds around the nasal area and the mouth. Radiesse is composed of calcium hydroxylapatite and also works for augmenting chin or cheek bones.
What does Radiesse treat®?
Radiesse can soften deep frown and nasal lines to create a refreshed look. This non-surgical wrinkle filler provides immediate results for treatment of naso-labial folds, peri-orial lines, depressed scars and loss of cheek volume. Radiesse has also proven effective in treating fat loss in the back of the hands, giving them a more youthful appearance.
What can I expect from my Radiesse® treatment?
General discomfort from Radiesse injections are swelling or some slight bruising at the injection sites which can be covered up by make-up.
How long will my Radiesse® treatment last?
Well defined wrinkles, frown lines and deep crease will greatly benefit from Radiesse injections. Radiesse remains soft and pliable and may be cost effective because it is long lasting. Depending on the areas treated, the Radiesse fillers may last for months or years with some minimal touch-ups. a
