What is RADIESSE®?
RADIESSE® is a dermal filler that temporarily adds volume to help smooth moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds — the creases that extend from the corner of your nose to the corner of your mouth.
What is RADIESSE® made from?
RADIESSE is made of tiny calcium-based microspheres suspended in a water-based gel. The calcium microspheres are similar to minerals found naturally in the body, so allergy testing is not required. Over time, the body absorbs the microspheres and gel, leaving behind only natural collagen.
How does RADIESSE® work?
Once injected, RADIESSE plumps the skin to give the appearance of a smoother surface. Over time, RADIESSE works to stimulate the body to produce collagen naturally. Ultimately, the body absorbs the product and leaves behind the natural collagen for long-lasting results. Our bodies produce less collagen as we age, so by enabling you to produce it naturally, this dermal filler will give your skin a more plump look.
How is treatment with RADIESSE® performed? Is it painful?
RADIESSE is injected under the skin in a quick procedure that can be done over the lunch hour. RADIESSE is also FDA-approved to mix with lidocaine (an anesthetic), which means the procedure will be much more comfortable. In fact, in a clinical study, 90 percent of patients treated reported significant pain reduction when injected with RADIESSE mixed with lidocaine.
How soon will you see results with RADIESSE®, and how long will they last?
Immediately upon injection, the RADIESSE dermal filler restores volume to smooth out the signs of aging. The natural-looking results may last up to a year or more in many patients.
