DERMAL FILLERS

Dermal Fillers

Radiesse

What is Radiesse®?

Radiesse® is a large molecule, calcium based filler whose unique formulation stimulates collagenases (the roduction of new collagen). Radiesse® is made of microspheres of calcium suspended in a natural gel. As we age, our own natural collagen breaks down, causing the volume in our face to diminish. The loss of elasticity results in wrinkles, facial lines, and skin laxity. Radiesse® works to replenish volume by welcoming back the skin’s own natural collagen.

Where can Radiesse® be placed in the face, and how long does it last?

Typically, in most patients, Radiesse® will last between 12 and 18 months. Radiesse® can be placed in most of the same areas that an HA (hyaluronic acid) can be placed, such as the nasolabial folds (lines that radiate from the corner of the nose to the edge of the mouth), marionette lines (lines that run downward from the outer corners of the mouth along the outside of the chin), and the pre-jowl sulcus (areas on the side of the chin). One of the most common uses of Radiesse® is in the cheeks. Augmentation of this area can provide the patient with nice, round plump cheeks where they have lost volume. Augmenting the cheeks also helps to lift and lend support to the overall facial structure. Another common placement of Radiesse® is the jawline to help augment the jaw and provide a younger more defined jaw line, with less skin laxity. Radiesse® cannot be used in the lips.

What can I expect after my treatment?

Radiesse® is a simple, non-surgical treatment that causes minimal recovery or downtime. Bruising and swelling may occur, but generally are minimal. In most cases, patients are able to return to their normal daily routine within 24-48 hours.
