Radiesse is a safe, FDA approved dermal filler that can provide quick and convenient results that last up to a year - or more. If you have used hyaluronic acid fillers like Juvederm in the past, you may want to try Radiesse for longer lasting correction.
Radiesse utilizes calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres to stimulate collagen production in problems areas of the face. The microspheres form a scaffold through which your own body's collagen can grow, making it the ideal choice for facial shaping and contouring.
What to Expect with Radiesse®
Radiesse is injected through a very fine needle to minimize discofort and reduce any scarring. Radiesse is FDA approved to mix with lidocaine, an anesthetic, to further reduce any discomfort.
You will see some mild swelling and redness at the injection sites that may last 1-2 days. In most cases you can return to your routine activities immediately following your treatment.
How does Radiesse compare to other fillers?
Radiesse is made of tiny calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres, giving it the unique ability to both immediately restore lost volume and stimulate your body to produce its own natural collagen for long-lasting results.
How soon can I expect results?
You will notice an immediate improvement with Radiesse treatment. Radiesse instantly restores volume to smooth out the signs of aging.
Is it safe?
Radiesse is FDA approved, and has undergone rigorous testing in clinical studies to prove its safety. There are side effects with any filler, most commonly: redness, bruising, swelling or other local side effects which typically resolve within a few days. More rare side effects may include swelling that lasts longer, unevenness or firmness in the area injected, and as with any injection, there may be a risk of infection.
