Radiesse is a volumizing filler that also acts to increase the natural collagen production of your own tissues.
— Dr. Mark Anton, Newport Beach Plastic Surgeon
Like Voluma, Radiesse has a thick viscosity making it an ideal filler for cheeks, temples and for building foundational support to “lift” sagging skin or enhance facial features like the jawline. Unlike other HA fillers, Radiesse is calcium-based and cannot be “erased” with hyaluronidase, a natural enzyme that causes the degradation of HA to remove an unwanted filler.
All fillers to date are absorbed by the body over time, but Radiesse can last up to 2 years. Obviously, the results will not be the same over its duration and often maintenance injections are desired. Because of its viscosity, Radiesse is ideal for creating beautiful, natural-looking cheeks, filling temples, treating pre-jowl lines, augmenting jawlines and chin and lifting nasal labial folds (smile and parenthesis lines). It is also recommended for adding volume to aging hands.
Anyone concerned with facial aging, deep wrinkles, skin laxity or those who desire more prominent contours of the face. Some medications, lifestyles and medical conditions may be contraindicated, restrict or prohibit treatment.
The treatment area(s) is(are) numbed with a topical numbing cream for 30 minutes before the treatment begins. Radiesse can be administered through a cannula (a small, blunt-tipped needle) or injected deeper into the bone. Both processes are made comfortable by the numbing cream and the steady hand of the injector. Ice packs are offered during and after treatment for added comfort.
Radiesse offers immediate results. Cheeks are fuller, contours more defined, wrinkles diminished or erased, and in some cases, the skin is “lifted” and appears tauter.
For optimal results, wait 3-5 days after treatment to allow swelling and any bruising to subside. Radiesse is clinically proven to last a year or more. However, each body absorbs Radiesse at its own rate. People with fast metabolism and athletes can expect to absorb Radiesse more quickly.
For best results, protect skin by limiting sun exposure and applying a physical sunblock daily, such as CORE made in the shade or Elta MD. In some cases, Botox may enhance Radiesse’s results and longevity.
