Radiesse® is a facial filler that is comprised or Calcium Hydroxylapatite. This filler is thicker than others and is used to add volume to the face. As we age, our face loses volume in certain areas. We also produce less collagen. In youthful skin, there is an abundance of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid which give it volume, support and suppleness. Radiesse® is the ONLY wrinkle filler that immediately replenishes lost volume and stimulates the production of your own natural collagen for long lasting results. It is clinically proven to last a year or more in many patients.
The filler is mixed with lidocaine, an anesthetic, to significantly reduce the injection related pain. The process takes 15 to 20 minutes to complete. Radiesse® works immediately so the results are instant. Additionally, as collagen is stimulated over several months, the effect of the Radiesse® treatments extends beyond the initial effect. This means you’ll not only look better immediately, you’ll continue to look better for months to come. Even when the product is completely gone, you’ll look more rejuvenated than you did before your initial treatment.
How much Radiesse® you’ll need or how long it will last will vary between patients. A cosmetic consultation is the best way to find out if this incredible filler is right for you. Call today to set up a complimentary cosmetic consultation.
