What is Radiesse?
Radiesse is an injectable wrinkle filler that works by immediately restoring facial volume to smooth out the signs of aging. Once injected, Radiesse adds volume over time and begins to stimulate the production of the body’s natural collagen.
What is Radiesse made from?
Radiesse is made of tiny calcium-based microspheres suspended in a water-based gel. These are similar to minerals found naturally in the body and over time, the body absorbs the microspheres and gel leaving behind only natural collagen.
What can benefit from a Radiesse treatment?
Radiesse is approved for the correction of moderate to severe wrinkles and folds.
Can I get a Radiesse treatment while pregnant?
Patients that are pregnant, breastfeeding or under the age of 18 should not undergo Radiesse treatments.
What is the recovery time for a Radiesse treatment?
Healing time varies from person to person, but typically doctors recommend avoiding drastic facial movements for the first 24 hours.
How soon will I see results from a Radiesse treatment?
Results will be visible immediately upon injection that will smooth out the signs of aging.
Is a Radiesse treatment painful?
Radiesse is injected under the skin safely and quickly, about an hour, and is approved to be mixed with anesthetics which means a more comfortable procedure.
How long does Radiesse last?
Natural-looking results may last up to a year or more in many patients.
Where can Radiesse be injected?
Radiesse can be injected in smile lines that run from the corners of the nose to the corners of the mouth, the marionette lines that run downward from the corners of the mouth, the corners of the mouth, the pre-jowl or area on either side of the chin, and chin wrinkles. It is also a great treatment for the mid-face area, such as the cheeks.
Are there any side effects of Radiesse?
As with any injection, patients may experience side effects such as mild irritation, swelling, itching, redness, bruising or tenderness around the injection site.
How does Radiesse work?
