Radiesse is a calcium-based microsphere dermal filler. Radiesse is a unique soft tissue filler because of its thickness, consistency, and ability to recontour bony surfaces such as the brow ridges and cheek bones. A process called “collagenesis,” uses these microspheres to helps promote one’s collagen production while acting as facial dermal fillers.
Diminish the Effects of Aging
With the passing years, skin may begin to look less vibrant and require rejuvination. The abundance of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid found in youthful skin, giving it support and volume is diminished. The resulting , wrinkles and facial lines ruin the fresh appearance of the skin .
Replacing lost structure with immediate volume is the recommended solution. The results of RADIESSE® Volumizing Filler are immediate and the results are instant. Injecting RADIESSE® Volumizing Filler will add the volume and lift, diminishing the signs of aging. RADIESSE® is truly unique in its ability to scaffold the support area under the skin, stimulating natural collagen to grow and providing structure. For several months the natural collagen production is ongoing and extends beyond the initial effect of injection of RADIESSE Volumizing Filler. The best news of all is that the natural results have been clinically proven in many patients to last a year or more.
What to Expect During the Procedure
Prior to the procedure, the areas are usually marked to ensure accurate product placement. Varying types of anesthetic are used, depending on the area being treated, to minimize any discomfort. Ice is applied to offer additional anesthesia and to minimize bruising. The product is slowly placed into the designated areas with a meticulous injection technique.
What to Expect After the Procedure
Immediately after the procedure, the treated areas will be slightly swollen and red. You will be sent home with reusable ice packs for use throughout the day. This helps minimize swelling and bruising, while providing comfort. Radiesse lasts from one to three years.
It is important to not have any facials, chemical peels, or waxing done to the treated areas for two weeks following Radiesse injections, as it takes two weeks for the product to settle.
