Radiesse® is an injectable dermal filler that temporarily adds volume to help smooth moderate to severe facial wrinkles and has an immediate lifting and firming effect on the skin. Once injected, it does not only immediately add volume to the treated area, but over time, the calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres of Radiesse® begin to stimulate the production of the body‘s natural collagen.
Collagen is the main structural protein of our skin and makes our skin appear firm and smooth. However, with age, natural collagen production slows down, so that our skin gets thinner and loses volume and elasticity. The consequences: Wrinkles develop and the facial features begin to sag – the whole face loses its contours.
How does it work?
RADIESSE® is injected into the skin with a thin needle to plump the skin and add volume to smooth facial wrinkles and folds such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth. The product is injected into the skin to make the wrinkles shallower and smoother. RADIESSE® will not correct the underlying causes of wrinkles and folds
How long does the effect of Radiesse® last?
Individual results are dependent on age, skin type, lifestyle, and metabolism and, of course, the area treated. Generally, the effect of the treatment lasts over a year for most patients.
What is the treatment procedure?
With the use of a local anesthetic, Radiesse® is gently injected into the skin, usually in small amounts, with a very fine needle. One treatment session typically takes approximately 30 minutes. The effect will be visible immediately after injection.
