Although hyaluronic acid fillers are a popular option, it’s common to want a filler that does more. Radiesse® is one option that can stimulate the growth of healthy, youthful proteins in the skin for effective rejuvenation from within.
Radiesse® is a specialized injectable filler made with calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres suspended in a silky-smooth gel. This serves a couple different functions— the first is that the gel product creates youthful volume under the skin to fill in wrinkles and lines. Secondly, CaHA stimulates the skin’s natural cell turnover and collagen production. As you age, this process typically slows down, resulting in skin that thins, wrinkles, and doesn’t have the support it needs. Fillers are one effective way to reverse this effect.
Radiesse® is an excellent option for patients looking for natural-looking results from a filler that works beyond just providing volume. Radiesse® has a variety of uses, including reducing the appearance of smile lines, marionette lines, pre-jowl folds, corners of the mouth, and chin wrinkles in the lower face. Additionally, Radiesse® is an extremely effective option for hand rejuvenation if you feel like the appearance of your hands doesn’t match your age.
Radiesse® can be administered in as little as 15 minutes. Each patient has different levels of tolerance, so we can provide a topical anesthetic before the injection process. Once you’re ready, the product is injected with a very fine needle into your treatment areas. This is done carefully and artfully to ensure you get the results you want. Once finished, you can return home immediately.
Radiesse® can last for up to one year, after which you can opt for re-treatment. You can expect some minor swelling and redness at the injection sites, but this subsides within a day or so. For best results, our expert team can recommend the right physician-grade treatments and products to help boost your skin and retain your youthful results.
