What is RADIESSE®?
RADIESSE® is a dermal filler that temporarily adds volume to help smooth moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds.
What is RADIESSE® made from?
RADIESSE is made of tiny calcium-based microspheres suspended in a water-based gel. The calcium microspheres are similar to minerals found naturally in the body so allergy testing is not required. Over time, the body absorbs the microspheres and gel, leaving behind only natural collagen.
How does RADIESSE® work?
Once injected, RADIESSE plumps the skin to give the appearance of a smoother surface. Over time, RADIESSE works to stimulate the body to produce collagen naturally. Ultimately the body absorbs the product and leaves behind the natural collagen for long-lasting results
Where can RADIESSE® be injected?
- Smile lines: also called the nasolabial folds, are the lines that run from the corners of the nose to the corners of the mouth
- Marionette lines: the lines that run downward from the corners of the mouth
- Chin wrinkles: horizontal lines that can form on your chin and distract from your smile
- Corners of the mouth: also called the oral commissure, if these are turned downward it can make you look as though you’re frowning
- Pre-jowl fold: the area on either side of the chin, where skin can sag due to loss of facial volume
Is treatment with RADIESSE® painful?
RADIESSE is injected under the skin in a quick procedure lasting approximately 15 minutes. RADIESSE is also FDA-approved to mix with lidocaine (an anesthetic), which means the treatment will be much more comfortable.
