What is Radiesse®?
Radiesse® is an FDA-approved injectable dermal filler that is used for smoothing moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds (the creases that extend from the corners of your nose to the corners of your mouth). Radiesse® is also FDA-approved for correcting volume loss in the back of the hands.
Radiesse® is ideal for treating areas of the face such as:
- Smile lines (aka nasolabial folds)
- Marionette lines (extending down from the corners of the mouth)
- Pre-jowl folds (this area can look hollow as volume loss causes the skin to sag along your jawline and create folds)
- Corners of the mouth (hollowing in this area can make you look tired, sad, or angry)
- Chin wrinkles (lines across your chin can distract from your smile and make you look older)
What Are the Benefits of Radiesse®?
Radiesse® provides an instant lift by restoring lost volume in areas of the lower face. Radiesse® also continues to work with your body, stimulating the natural production of collagen for a more refreshed appearance that can last up to a year or more in many patients.
What Should I Expect from a Radiesse® Procedure?
After treatment, you will see the results right away, and these results have been shown to last up to a year or more, depending on the specific area that is treated and the individual patient.
What is the Recovery like After a Radiesse® Treatment?
Generally, the side effects of this product are mild and short-lived.
