What is Radiesse?
Radiesse is a volumizing facial filler used in patients with moderate-to-severe wrinkles, scars and volume loss. It consists of calcium-based microspheres suspended in gel that fill in the temples, contour the cheeks and plump up the hands.* Radiesse is also commonly used to soften frown lines and marionettes (the lines that run from the chin to the corners of your mouth).
How does Radiesse work?
Radiesse is a unique filler that helps to restore your own natural collagen.* It acts as a scaffold underneath the skin that provides a robust structure and stimulates your existing collagen into action.* This stimulation of collagen can continue for several months after the procedure, resulting in long-lasting results.* Although there are many types of collagen, its main function is to provide our skin with firmness and elasticity. Around the age of 18, our bodies begin to slow down the produce of collagen.
What can I expect during the consultation and treatments?
During your consultation, our first step will be to determine whether or not Radiesse is right for you and your aesthetic goals. By the end of your consultation, we will customize a treatment plan that fits your specific concerns. If Radiesse is right for you, during treatments, a series of injections will be given and you will notice immediate results.* The total treatment time is approximately 30 minutes. After the injections, you may experience some swelling, redness, pain or bruising. These side effects are usually mild and subside within a few days.
What can I expect from the results?
Because Radiesse stimulates the growth of your own collagen, even after the gel has been metabolized by your body, results can last up to a year.* However, the location of where the product is placed is very important; when Radiesse is injected into the marionettes, it will probably not last as long as if it were injected in the temples. The number of treatments needed depends on a number of factors: how much filler was used, where it was placed and how quickly your body absorbs the product. Most patients will get a follow-up treatment in 9-12 months.
