What is Radiesse®?
Radiesse® is a cosmetic dermal filler that lasts longer than the former leading filler. A next-generation filler, it does more than just plump-up facial lines and wrinkles. That’s because only Radiesse® has advanced calcium-based microsphere technology that restores volume and naturally promotes the growth of the body’s own collagen. Radiesse® treatment delivers the fullness and youthful beauty of the face for a natural look that lasts longer without surgery or the risks of permanent implants.
How does Radiesse® work?
Radiesse® is gently injected into the skin in small amounts with a very fine needle. Its exclusive calcium-based microsphere technology contains tiny particles that form a scaffold around which the body is stimulated to produce new collagen. This unique response provides immediate, visible improvement of folds and wrinkles, while the body’s own collagen naturally restores a fuller, more youthful appearance that keeps patients looking better even longer.
What is Radiesse® used for?
Radiesse® is used for long-lasting correction of facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds.
What sets Radiesse® apart from other fillers?
Radiesse® is different because it lasts longer than the former leading filler. Further, Radiesse® offers sustained cosmetic results without the risks or drawbacks associated with a permanent filler implant or surgery. Its unique calcium-based microsphere technology provides immediate aesthetic improvement along with the benefits of volumizing facial folds and rebuilding the skin’s foundation for a natural, youthful look that lasts.
Clinical studies show that one Radiesse® treatment provides extended results that typically last one year or longer for a worthwhile investment that saves time and money on repeat treatments.
Who is a candidate for Radiesse® treatment?
Women or men who have facial wrinkles and folds common with aging and volume loss are candidates for Radiesse®. In particular, Radiesse® is the better choice for women who are familiar with other filler products but are frustrated by the cost and inconvenience of injections every few months.
How long will Radiesse® last?
In facial applications, Radiesse® provides an aesthetic correction that has been shown to last one year or longer. Additionally, new collagen growth helps maintain the correction for the long term. Individual results may vary.
Is Radiesse® safe?
In years of rigorous clinical testing and use by physicians in more than 200,000 patients worldwide, Radiesse® has been shown to be safe and effective. Its biocompatible composition means there is virtually no risk of any allergic reaction or concern that your body will reject Radiesse®. There may be some normal injection-related occurrences, such as discomfort, swelling, or redness that typically resolve on their own within a day or two.
How many treatments are required?
Patients may be able to achieve an optimal correction on their first injection. Depending on both the doctor’s and patient’s treatment preferences, a touch-up may be needed to obtain the desired effect.
