What is Radiesse?
Radiesse stands apart from other cosmetic fillers because it not only adds volume to your skin, but also replaces the underlying structure that supports your skin. The secret behind the results you achieve with Radiesse is calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres that work to stimulate your body’s natural collagen production. Over time, the Radiesse gel is absorbed by your body and the new collagen continues to give you a youthful and beautiful appearance.
Where can Radiesse be used?
Radiesse is an effective treatment for lines and wrinkles around your mouth and nose. Typical treatment areas include smile lines, marionette lines and the corners of your mouth. Radiesse may also be used for wrinkles on your chin and the jaw area on either side of your chin.
What can I expect after the procedure?
Radiesse treatments require no downtime, and you may resume normal activities immediately after your treatment. Some patients experience some discomfort at the injection site, and these symptoms typically resolve within a few days. Over-the-counter pain medications may help with any pain or swelling, although most patients are able to tolerate these effects of treatment without medications.
