What is RADIESSE?
RADIESSE is an injectable dermal filler used to plump creased and folded areas of the face. RADIESSE is comprised of calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres suspended in an aqueous gel carrier. Once injected, it provides immediate correction and then continues to work by stimulating the body’s own natural collagen production. Over time, the gel is absorbed and the body metabolizes the microspheres leaving behind only your own collagen. Besides providing amazing benefits for multiple facial areas, RADIESSE is the only dermal filler designed for use in the hands.
Which parts of the body can RADIESSE treat?
- Lost volume in the hands
- Smile and marionette lines
- Chin folds and wrinkles
- Corners of the mouth
Is RADIESSE right for me?
RADIESSE is the perfect antiaging solution for adult men and women of all ages. There are a few exceptions listed below.
You should not use RADIESSE if you have an allergy to any component of the product, if you have a history of severe allergies, if you have a bleeding disorder, or if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
What can I expect the day I receive RADIESSE treatment?
RADIESSE is injected under the skin in a quick procedure that can be done over the lunch hour. It is mixed with lidocaine, an anesthetic, which means the procedure will be comfortable for most patients. RADIESSE is not a surgical treatment, so there is no down time necessary. You can return to your normal activities right away, though it may take a few hours for redness and minor swelling at the injection site to dissipate.
When will I see results after RADIESSE treatment and how long will it last?
You will see results immediately following RADIESSE treatment, though it may take a few hours for redness and minor swelling at the injection site to dissipate. The natural results have been shown to last a year or more in many patients, making the treatment results both immediate and long lasting.
