How does RADIESSE® work?

RADIESSE® is a unique dermal filler made from calcium hydroxylapatite (a naturally-occurring mineral that promotes the production of collagen) suspended in a water-based gel. Unlike other dermal fillers (such as Juvèderm), RADIESSE® Injections provide both immediate results with added volume and reduced wrinkles, and long-term results with increased levels of collagen and healthier skin.
RADIESSE® can be used to:

  • Restore volume to thinning or hollow cheeks
  • Reduce the appearance of wrinkles around your nose and mouth
  • Smooth laugh lines and nasolabial folds
  • Reduce the appearance of deep scars
  • Add volume to your forehead or other areas of your face that may appear hollow
  • Restore lost volume to the backs of your hands
  • Sculpt and improve your jawline

What to expect

A treatment of RADIESSE® is rapid and virtually painless, usually completed in as little as 15 minutes. Most patients report mild swelling at the injection sites immediately after treatment, but this usually subsides quickly over the following days. You can expect to see instant results, and you can expect to retain the results for a year or more. Maintaining your beautifully-enhanced look is easily accomplished with further treatments once the initial results have begun to fade.

A key benefit of RADIESSE® over other fillers is the long-term advantages of increased collagen production. While the immediate and dramatic results gradually fade, you can expect to retain smoother and more luxurious skin long after the product has dissipated.

Am I a candidate?

The best candidates for RADIESSE® are those who:

  • Desire a more youthful, vigorous, and smooth face
  • Desire a more sculpted and aesthetic face
  • Are dissatisfied with their aging hands
  • Are realistic in their expectations and goals

Because RADIESSE® is composed only of naturally-occurring ingredients, there’s no risk of an allergic reaction, and no allergy testing is required beforehand.
