What is Radiesse?
Radiesse is a next-generation cosmetic dermal filler that is injected into the skin to add volume to the skin.
What areas of the body can be treated with Radiesse?
The procedure corrects parts of the body where unwanted wrinkles have developed or sagging has occured. For example, facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds (the creases from the nostrils to the corners of the mouth that come with age) and grooves around the mouth area can be effectively treated
How does the Radiesse treatment work?
Radiesse consists of tiny calcium-based particles that not only replace volume lost, but also stimulate new collagen growth for longer-lasting cosmetic results. Radiesse is injected into the skin in small amounts with a very fine needle. The calcium-based microspheres form a scaffold around which the body produces new collagen to naturally restore the full, youthful beauty of the face. The tiny microspheres gradually breakdown into calcium and phosphate ions that are naturally absorbed by the body.
Are there any side effects?
The Radiesse procedure is very quick, with no patient downtime. Results last approximately one year, or longer in some cases.
