Radiesse®

Radiesse is a long lasting dermal filler that lasts longer than hyaluronic acid gels or collagen. Radiesse lasts typically up to 18 months or longer. By using your body’s ability to grow collagen and regenerate tissue, Radiesse produces natural looking results for a fresh, rested, healthy appearance that still looks like you.

The advantage of Radiesse is that it not only provides its own long term volume and wrinkle correction, but also creates an increase in your own collagen, so these results are extended by your own skin’s natural support system.

RADIESSE FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQ)

WHAT IS RADIESSE?

Radiesse is a safe, next generation cosmetic dermal filler that is setting a new standard for the correction of facial lines and wrinkles such as nasolabial folds. Years of rigorous clinical studies prove that Radiesse lasts longer than the former leading filler, to safely fill and correct smile lines, nasolabial folds and wrinkles around the nose and mouth. 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. Simply put, Radiesse treatments deliver a natural look that lasts.

HOW DOES RADIESSE WORK?

Radiesse works below the skin’s surface. Tiny calcium-based microspheres form a “scaffold” to support and stimulate the growth of your own collagen to create a natural, full, youthful look. Radiesse does more than just temporarily fill-in facial lines and wrinkles, it rebuilds your skin’s foundation, without the risks associated with permanent fillers.

IS RADIESSE SAFE?

Yes. Over 250,000 patients have experienced Radiesse and more than 4,000 physicians have been trained to provide Radiesse treatments. Through years of rigorous industry and independent research worldwide, Radiesse has been shown to be safe and effective. With Radiesse, you get safe, clinically tested, FDA-approved reliability.

IS RADIESSE RIGHT FOR ME?

If you are beginning to notice facial wrinkles, lines and folds, you may be an excellent candidate for a Radiesse treatment.

IS RADIESSE SAFE TO USE FOR MY HANDS?

Yes, Radiesse is very commonly used to restore the plumpness of the back of the hands. Age causes fat loss and tissue thinning. Radiesse provides a long lasting immediate “fill” of the valleys. Vein prominence is diminished in a quick, surprisingly pain free injection.

WHY “FILL IN” WRINKLES WITH RADIESSE?

Over time, tissue volume diminishes, leaving what is commonly seen as lines and wrinkles, including the deepening of nasolabial folds, accentuated smile lines (sometimes called “marionette lines”), fallen cheek pads and sagging jaw lines. Radiesse can be injected into the skin to compensate or correct these areas. By using your body’s ability to grow collagen and regenerate tissue, Radiesse produces natural looking results for a fresh, rested, healthy appearance that still looks like you.

CAN RADIESSE BE USED WITH THER FILLERS ?

Radiesse is used in the deeper planes of the skin and acts as a strong support system. This is one of the reasons it is used in the nonsurgical face lift procedures. More superficial lines and wrinkles, and the lips, are most efficiently treated with hyaluronic acid gels such as Juvederm (ideal for lip augmentation), Restylane or the collagens.

HOW IS A RADIESSE TREATMENT PERFORMED?

Radiesse is injected into the skin through a simple, safe, quick, and minimally invasive outpatient procedure. With the use of an anesthetic, Radiesse treatments have little to no downtime, with most patients returning to normal activities soon after treatment.

ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS?

Normal, injection-related reactions such as mild irritation, edema, swelling, itching, discoloration or tenderness at the injection site may occur. These conditions typically resolve on their own within 1 to 2 days.

COULD I HAVE AN ALLERGIC REACTION TO RADIESSE?

Radiesse is biocompatible, meaning there is virtually no risk of an allergic reaction. You do not need to undergo skin allergy testing, common in certain animal-based or permanent filler agents, prior to treatment.

IS RADIESSE PERMANENT?

No. Treatment results are relatively long lasting, but not permanent. Over time the tiny calcium-based microspheres gradually break down into basic calcium and phosphate ions which are safely and naturally absorbed into your body, leaving your own collagen in their place.
