What is RADIESSE®?
A special gel-matrix, Radiesse® Volumizing Filler creates immediately visible results. With its fine calcium microspheres Radiesse® Volumizing Filler stimulates the body’s natural collagen formation to create long-lasting volume. The gel itself, as well as the microspheres, are completely broken down by the body over time. The best solution for erasing lines and folds is to replace lost structure with immediate volume. Radiesse® Volumizing Filler works immediately so the results are instant.
How does RADIESSE® work for wrinkles?
Radiesse® Volumizing Filler does more than just fill troublesome lines; it immediately restores lost volume and stimulates the production of your own natural collagen. Indicated for the treatment of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, it puts volume back exactly where it was; deeper wrinkles and hollow or sagging cheeks disappear, and the natural facial contours return. Once injected, Radiesse® Volumizing Filler adds the volume and lift needed to diminish the signs of aging. What makes Radiesse® truly unique is the ability of the product to act as a scaffold under the skin, providing structure and stimulating your own natural collagen to grow.
Are there any side-effects?
Just like any injection, you may experience mild irritation, swelling, itching, redness, bruising or tenderness at the injection site. These side effects typically resolve on their own.
How soon will I see the results?
Immediately upon injection when treated to full correction, Radiesse® Volumizing Filler plumps the skin and smoothes away lines and wrinkles.
How long does the effect of a RADIESSE treatment last?
The production of natural collagen continues for several months, which extends beyond the initial effect of Radiesse® Volumizing Filler. Best of all, the natural results are clinically proven to last a year or more in many patients, which means more value from each treatment and long-lasting results.
What does the procedure cost?
