What Is Radiesse™?
Radiesse is a long lasting dermal filler that lasts longer than hyaluronic acid gels or collagen 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. .
What Is The Treatment Plan?
When injected into the deep dermis, Radiesse™ provides a matrix (foundation) into which the body's own tissue can grow and add volume. In this way, it is used for soft tissue augmentation (e.g. adds volume to lips and cheeks), and can help to fill in deep skin folds and wrinkles. A small needle is used to implant Radiesse™. Topical and/or local anesthetic is used for pain control during injections.
What Can Patients Expect Following Treatment?
Radiesse™ injections have been shown to last for several years. However, individual results may be affected by age, skin type, lifestyle, and muscle activity. Some patients may achieve an optimal correction on their first injection. For other patients, variability in the rate of tissue in-growth following re-absorption of the gel carrier may require additional injections to achieve an optimal correction.
