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 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 can deliver a natural look that lasts.
Why choose Radiesse®?
Radiesse® cosmetic dermal filler can address many facial aesthetic and corrective needs. Because the results are natural looking and longer lasting, many clients turn to Radiesse® to achieve a correction that revives and rejuvenates their appearance. No matter if your goals are to correct facial lines and wrinkles or to refresh your appearance, Radiesse® provides a safe, cost-effective and convenient treatment option.
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.
Over time, your body absorbs the gel carrier while collagen has started to grow and infiltrate the area, replacing the gel with your own, natural tissue. The Radiesse® microspheres continue to provide the support and structure for your body to grow new tissue and collagen until the microspheres are also safely and naturally absorbed into your body.
Is Radiesse® safe?
Yes. Over 250,000 people have used Radiesse®, and more than 4,000 health care professionals 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.
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 in order 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.
How soon can I expect results? How long will the results last?
The results are immediate. Radiesse® continues to deliver results as it works with your body to stimulate new collagen and regenerate tissue. Results typically last a year or more, longer than the former leading cosmetic dermal filler, saving you time and money. Since results may vary, we will do our very best to manage your expectations.
How many treatments will I need?
Many clients will achieve their desired result after just one treatment. Because Radiesse® is a longer-term cosmetic enhancement, and to ensure your satisfaction with the treatment, we might schedule a follow-up visit, where a touch-up treatment might be recommended.
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 one to two days, but may last longer.
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. However, if you believe you are having an allergic reaction to Radiesse®, seek medical attention immediately.
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.
