Developed with safety and longevity in mind, Radiesse is a new generation injectable filler that offers superior versatility for both cosmetic and reconstructive use without surgery. The unique composition of Radiesse provides immediate visual improvement common with other fillers, along with the benefit of long-lasting results. This is because Radiesse is made of very tiny, smooth calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres. The microspheres (particles) form a scaffold through which your body's own collagen grows, and this produces the desired long-term effect. These unique advantages make Radiesse and excellent choice for facial shaping and contouring.
Radiesse will last approximately one year (or longer) and is very effective for use for the nasolabial creases, marionette lines, cheek augmentation, non-surgical rhinoplasty, jawline and chin augmentation.
As with any filler, a consultation with your plastic surgeon is necessary to discuss the options and to determine which areas are best suited for Radiesse treatment.
The injection procedure can be slightly painful, so topical and local anesthetics may be used prior to injection of Radiesse.
