Radiesse® is a dermal filler that lasts longer than hyaluronic acid gels or collagen. 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. Once injected, Radiesse® provides immediate volume and correction but also continues to work by stimulating the skin to produce its own natural 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. Simply put, Radiesse® treatments deliver a natural look that lasts.
How Soon Will I See Results?
How Long Will The Results Last?
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. Individual results will vary. You may need “touch up” treatments to maintain optimal correction of wrinkles.
30-60 minutes Discomfort is minimal to moderate. We use numbing cream or ice packs to aid with treatment. Many of the fillers also come mixed with numbing medication (lidocaine) for enhanced patient comfort.
Medications To Avoid Prior To Treatment:
Discuss with us and your primary physician your exact medication list prior to stopping, but typically avoid for 5 days prior to your treatment your blood thinners (such as aspirin, ibuprofen, alcohol, omegas, flaxseed oil, fish oil, vitamin D3, and vitamin E).
Potential Side Effect:
Localized redness, tenderness, swelling; firmness, bumps; discoloration, bruising; very rare possibility of infection.
