What is Radiesse?
Radiesse is a dermal filler made from calcium hydroxyapatite (CaHA). These calcium microspheres create instant volume and lift while stimulating collagen and elastin production for long lasting results. The formula is cohesive and mimics the natural structure of connective tissue to rebuild and add definition to various areas of the face, neck and body.
What Areas Does Radiesse Treat?
Radiesse can be used to smooth deep wrinkles and restore volume to many areas of the face, neck and body.
Hollow or deficient temples are unwanted sign of aging that results from loss of collagen, muscle, fat and bone. Radiesse injected in the temple areas helps to reduce the concavity and volume loss, helping to stabilize the lateral brow and facilitates early facial lifting.
Gaunt or flattened cheeks are another unwanted sign of aging that results from loss of collagen, fat and sagging skin. Radiesse can be injected into the cheeks to restore healthy, youthful volume or augment the appearance of the cheekbones.
Radiesse helps to define the ogonion angle laterally and lift the jowl complex when injected into the medial and lateral jawline. This leaves the jawline more defined and contoured.
Chin definition, contour and wrinkles can both be improved with Radiesse. Radiesse stimulates collagen production to plump the skin and soften the appearance of marionette lines while creating structure to enhance the projection of the chin.
Nasolabial folds (smile lines) are the facial creases extending from the corners of the mouth to the sides of the nose. As we age and skin loses its elasticity, these creases become more prominent. Radiesse can be injected around the mouth to correct moderate to severe nasolabial folds and improve signs of aging.
Downturned Corners of the Mouth
Radiesse can also be injected around the mouth to smooth wrinkles above the lips and lift the corners of the mouth. As the skin ages and sags, the corners of your mouth can be pulled down, creating a tired or sad appearance. It will refresh your smile and appearance by smoothing the lines beneath the mouth that create a downturned look.
Reduce Neck Wrinkles &Tighten the Neck
Radiesse can improve the appearance of horizontal neck lines and lift sagging skin with mild to moderate skin laxity. This will tighten the jawline and smooth the neck for a more youthful appearance.
By stimulating collagen production, Radiesse lifts the skin around acne scars, “covering” their appearance with new, healthy skin. Pitted scars will be less noticeable so that you can enjoy smoother, unblemished skin.
Back of Hands
The benefits of Radiesse extend beyond the face. When injected into the hands, it plumps thin, crepey skin to reduce the appearance of prominent veins and tendons. It can also tighten loose skin to combat signs of aging.
Radiesse can also be injected into the buttocks to smooth cellulite dimples and give your backside a subtle lift. It lifts the skin around cellulite dimpling to smooth its appearance and your contours. The collagen stimulation also provides a subtle lift similar to that of a Brazilian butt lift.
Benefits of Radiesse
The benefits of Radiesse are endless. It is a safe and highly effective treatment. Here are important benefits you can expect from this collagen-stimulating dermal filler:
1. Build Contour & Definition
Radiesse has a firm formula, making it a great alternative for cheek, jawline, or chin implants. It can also be used to recontour nasal humps and other deformities on the nose, making this a great treatment for non-surgical rhinoplasty and other minimally invasive cosmetic procedures.
2. Collagen & Elastin Stimulator
Radiesse injections stimulate collagen and elastin resulting in less saggy, tighter and smoother skin. Wrinkles, folds and lines are softer leaving with natural looking youthful skin.
3. No Downtime
Radiesse treatments are safe and effective with no downtime. Injections take about 30 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area and how many injections you need.
4. Immediate Results
Radiesse gel is made up of tiny microspheres that instantly plump and lift the skin. Most patients see results within the same day as their treatment and sometimes in as little as an hour after injections. After a few days, the microspheres will start to be absorbed into the body to stimulate collagen for the long-term effects.
5. Long-Lasting Results
While some dermal fillers last as little as 6 months, Radiesse can last at least 12-18 months and up to 2 years! As it metabolizes, your face will not completely revert to its aged appearance because the new stimulation of collagen has slowed down the aging process.
6. Natural Results
Since Radiesse mimics the natural growth of collagen in your skin, the results will enhance rather than change your facial features. You can expect a rejuvenated appearance that restores your youthful look for a refreshed, not altered, appearance.
Radiesse is a calcium-based product made from the same ingredients naturally found in your body. This means the risk of an allergic reaction is almost nonexistent and most patients can safely receive treatment. The formula is also biocompatible and will safely be absorbed into the body as it breaks down over time.
