Radiesse is a revolutionary product in the world of dermal fillers. Following treatment, Radiesse not only provides immediately visible results but simultaneously starts to stimulate your own body’s collagen production as well.
This injectable dermal filler restores smoothness to areas of your face that show signs of aging. Its long-lasting volumizing effect is what makes it such a unique dermal filler. Radiesse is an exceptional solution for patients who are interested in minimally invasive facial rejuvenation with minimal to no downtime.
What is Radiesse®?
RADIESSE® dermal filler is a safe and effective treatment for filling and correcting:
- smile lines (or nasolabial folds)
- marionette lines (lines that begin at the corners of the mouth and extend down towards the chin)
- wrinkles around the nose and mouth
- chin wrinkles
It is made of unique calcium-based microspheres that are suspended in a water-based gel and injected into the skin through a simple, safe, and minimally invasive procedure.
How Radiesse® Works
RADIESSE® dermal filler stimulates the body to produce new collagen. RADIESSE® works by adding volume to the desired areas and restoring a natural, youthful look that lasts. In many patients, the results are long-lasting. Results may last up to a year, or sometimes longer.
RADIESSE® provides immediate correction through a convenient treatment that can be performed during your lunch hour! RADIESSE® treatments may require less frequent visits to our office for additional treatments.
What Are the Benefits of Radiesse?
Natural collagen is what gives skin a smooth, youthful appearance. As you age, natural collagen breaks down, resulting in wrinkles and loss of volume in the face.
RADIESSE is a volumizing filler and provides an instant lift to your face. It also fills wrinkles to help restore your skin to its youthful state. What makes Radiesse unique is that it continues to work with your body, stimulating the natural production of collagen.
Who Can Benefit From Radiesse?
Radiesse is the perfect choice for patients who want to address various aesthetic concerns with the most natural-looking results possible. Radiesse treatment is quite effective for patients who are starting to see the first signs of aging. Specifically, they want to correct age-related volume loss that results in sagging skin, deep wrinkles, and hollowed cheeks that make them look older than their real age. Radiesse instantaneously replenishes volume loss while filling in lines and wrinkles.
How Long Do the Results of Radiesse Last?
Radiesse treatments can last up to a year or more in many patients. However, it is important to note that every patient’s experience is different, so touch-up injections may be necessary to maintain the results.
What to Expect During Radiesse Treatment
RADIESSE treatments are a quick procedure that is performed in either of our offices in Larkspur, and Pinole. Treatments are usually completed in about 30 minutes. However, treatment time may vary depending on the number of treatment areas and the degree of correction needed.
Is There Any Recovery After Radiesse?
In general, there is no downtime or recovery period associated with Radiesse injections. Some patients may experience slight swelling or bruising at the injection site, however, these mild side effects are temporary and will resolve on their own. Although rare, severe or prolonged swelling or bruising should be re-evaluated by your healthcare provider.
Who Is an Ideal Candidate for Radiesse?
Ideal candidates for Radiesse are in generally good health and have concerns about wrinkles, volume loss, and facial aging. They also have realistic expectations about dermal fillers and understand what they can and cannot do.
Can Radiesse Be Combined With Other Treatments?
Radiesse can be combined with other rejuvenating treatments, such as other dermal fillers and neurotoxins.
