RADIESSE

RADIESSE is a wrinkle filler used to plump the skin. RADIESSE is injected through a small needle and placed under the skin. Immediately, this filler works to add volume under the skin and over time, the benefits of RADIESSE continue by stimulating your body’s own natural collagen. The natural results have been shown to last a year or more in many patients, making the treatment results both immediate and long lasting.

Mechanism of Action

RADIESSE is comprised of Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres suspended in an aqueous gel carrier.

Once injected, it provides immediate volume and correction but continues to work by stimulating the body to produce its own natural collagen.

Over time, the gel is absorbed and the body metabolizes the CaHA microspheres leaving behind only your own natural collagen.

 

Why choose RADIESSE?

  • RADIESSE immediately replenishes lost volume and stimulates the production of your own natural collagen with results that can last a year or more in many patients.

  • Over time, the gel is absorbed and the body metabolizes the CaHA microspheres leaving behind only your own natural collagen.

  • RADIESSE is clinically proven to last a year or more in many patients.

  • RADIESSE provides results with high patient satisfaction.

  • RADIESSE is FDA approved to mix with lidocaine, an anesthetic, to significantly reduce injection-related pain.

  • RADIESSE is a viable option to help provide a long-lasting natural look while immediately smoothing wrinkles.

PROCEDURE AND RESULTS

Radiesse® treatments generally take only 15-20 minutes, after which, you may return to your regularly scheduled daily activities. Patients concerned about potential discomfort can rest easy knowing that the FDA has approved the infusion of lidocaine (a local anesthetic) with Radiesse® treatments, in order to ensure your comfort during and after your treatment.

At the conclusion of your Radiesse® treatment, you will immediately observe a reduction in the appearance of your fine lines and wrinkles, and your skin-enhancing results will continue to improve for up to year after your initial injections, as your body’s collagen stores are replenished.

 

FAQS

 

WHAT IS RADIESSE® VOLUMIZING FILLER?

RADIESSE Volumizing Filler is an injectable facial filler that works by immediately restoring facial volume to smooth out the signs of aging. Once injected, it works with your body to stimulate the production of your own natural collagen for results that may last a year or more in many patients.

 

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN RADIESSE VOLUMIZING FILLER AND OTHER FILLERS?

RADIESSE Volumizing Filler has the unique ability to both immediately restore lost volume and stimulate your body to produce its own natural collagen for long-lasting results.

 

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Once injected, RADIESSE Volumizing Filler does exactly as it says: it fills or replenishes volume lost over time for a more refreshed looking you. Then it goes to work by stimulating your body to produce its own natural collagen. Over time, your body absorbs the product and leaves behind only your own natural collagen for long-lasting results.

 

DOES IT HURT?

RADIESSE Volumizing Filler is FDA approved to mix with lidocaine (an anesthetic). That means you can experience a more comfortable wrinkle treatment.

WHAT IS IT MADE OF?

RADIESSE Volumizing Filler is made of tiny calcium-based microspheres which are suspended in a natural, water-based gel. These calcium based microspheres are similar to minerals that are found naturally in your body so allergy testing is not required. Over time, your body absorbs these tiny microspheres and the gel and leaves behind only your own natural collagen.

HOW IS THE TREATMENT PERFORMED?

RADIESSE Volumizing Filler is injected into the skin in a simple, safe, quick procedure that can even be done over your lunch hour.

 

IS IT SAFE AND ARE THERE SIDE EFFECTS?

RADIESSE Volumizing Filler is FDA approved, and has undergone rigorous testing in clinical studies to prove its safety. As with all filler treatments, patients may experience redness, bruising, swelling or other local side effects. Most side effects of treatment resolve within a few days. More rare side effects may include swelling that lasts longer, unevenness or firmness in the area injected, and as with any injection, there may be a risk of infection.

 

HOW LONG IS THE RECOVERY TIME?

There is very little to no down-time involved in a RADIESSE Volumizing Filler procedure. In fact, most patients return to their normal, daily activities right after their visit.
