Radiesse® is a long-lasting injectable filler used to smooth wrinkles and defects in the skin. It is the first calcium hydroxyapatite injectable implant used for soft tissue augmentation. Radiesse® is a proven safe and effective treatment for patients wishing to improve their appearance.
Many different parts of your face can be treated with Radiesse®. The deep nasolabial folds (folds that form from the nose to the corners of the mouth), depressed scars, acne scars, chin grooves, nasal defects and cheek hollows can all be enhanced.
Radiesse® treatment benefits:
- Immediate Results
- Long Lasting
- No Allergic Reaction
- Skin Remains Soft and Pliable
- Can be used alone or with other procedures such as laser rejuvenation, chemical peels and Botox®
Radiesse® treatments take about 30 minutes. A topical anesthetic may be used prior to injection. Radiesse® is injected directly under the wrinkle using a tiny needle. Because Radiesse® is not absorbed by the body, there is no need to “overfill.”
You can resume your normal activites immediately after treatment. Slight discomfort after the procedure can be controlled with ice. There is mild swelling, which disappears in 24 to 36 hours. Minimal bruising may occur, but can be covered with makeup.
The results of Radiesse® are immediate and last 12 to 18 months, with the best results seen at 4 weeks. The number of treatments depends on the area to be treated and the desired results. One treatment is usually sufficient and long lasting.
