Radiesse® Facial Filler
Radiesse® is a non-surgical facial contouring filler that delivers an immediate, long lasting result. The results of Radiesse® in clinical studies have been shown to last two to three times longer than Restylane®. The durability, longevity and versatility give physicians and patients alike a reason to get excited.
Radiesse® is made of very tiny, smooth calcium hydroxlapatite microspheres; the composition of this particle is similar to the composition of your bones, and this is what gives it great compatibility with your body. The microspheres form a scaffold through which your body’s own collagen grows, and this produces the desired long-term effect. These unique advantages make Radiesse® the ideal choice for facial shaping and contouring.
Radiesse® can assist in reversing the common signs of aging or address a health issue that otherwise would require an invasive treatment. Radiesse® can even be used for a non-surgical rhinoplasty. In less then an hour and with no down time, unwanted bumps and ridges of the nose can be corrected costing thousands less then surgery. Radiesse® is also popularly used to build up cheek bones that have shifted with aging; nasolabial fold lines are reduced and a youthful bone structure is restored. Other areas Radiesse® is injected include the chin, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and jaw line.
One week prior to treatment, patients will want to avoid taking aspirin, anti-inflammatory medications, Vitamin E and St. John’s Wort. This will help minimize any bruising or bleeding. The most common side effects are temporary swelling and redness and these will usually subside within 2-3 days.
