The telltale signs of aging are wrinkles, deep furrows and prominent nasolabial (nose to mouth) creases, jowls, marionette lines (mouth to chin folds), laugh lines, wrinkles around the eyes and hollowed out temples and cheeks. Facial rejuvenation with dermal fillers can treat these telltale signs by temporarily adding back volume and smoothing lines and wrinkles without invasive surgery.
What is Radiesse?
Radiesse is a dermal filler made of microspheres of calcium hydroxyapatite (CaHA) that has been in use safely and effectively for over 30 years; backed by over 200 clinical trials and approved for the face and hands.
Radiesse works in two ways. The injected microspheres provide immediate volume and correction of severe wrinkles and continues to work by stimulating the body to produce its own natural collagen for long-lasting correction of moderate to severe wrinkles, improves skin quality, firmness and strength while restoring volume. Over time, the gel is absorbed, and the body metabolizes the CaHA microspheres leaving behind only your own natural collagen and elastin.
Results are natural looking and lasts 6-18 months, depending on the location in which it is injected. Radiesse contains lidocaine for your comfort. Side effects are mild and short lived, including bruising, redness and swelling.
Common treatment areas include:
- Mid-facial volume loss
- Nasolabial folds
- Neck wrinkles
- Chest crepiness
- Marionette lines
- Chin wrinkles
- Pre-jowl folds
- Skeletal or veiny hands
