Radiesse - Frequently Asked Questions
Radiesse® is a safe, next generation cosmetic dermal filler that is setting a new standard for the correction of facial lines and wrinkles such as Nasolabial Folds. That's because clinical studies prove that Radiesse lasts longer than the former leading filler to deliver a soft natural look that lasts.
Radiesse cosmetic dermal filler can address many facial aesthetic and corrective needs. Because the results are natural looking and longer lasting, many patients turn to Radiesse to achieve a correction that revives and rejuvenates their appearance. No matter if your goals are to correct facial lines and wrinkles or to refresh your appearance, Radiesse provides a safe, cost-effective and convenient treatment option.
Radiesse® is ideal for the treatment of lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth. These lines are typically above the mouth, running from the nose to the corners of the upper lip (Nasolabial Folds), or pointing down from the corner of the mouth towards the chin (Marionette Lines).
Radiesse® works with your body, below the skin's surface, to stimulate the production of collagen and encourage tissue regeneration. It does more than just temporarily fill-in facial lines and wrinkles - it rebuilds your skin's foundation. You get immediate results and look younger, longer.
Radiesse is made of very small, smooth calcium hydroxylapitite (CaHA) microspheres, which are suspended in a water-based gel carrier. As Radiesse is injected, the gel and Radiesse Microspheres form a "scaffold", stimulating collagen production and encouraging tissue growth in and around the injection area. This "partnership" between Radiesse and your own body creates a natural look, comprised of your own tissue and Radiesse Microspheres.
Over time, your body absorbs the gel carrier while collagen has started to grow and infiltrate the area, replacing the gel with your own, natural tissue. The Radiesse Microspheres continue to provide the support and structure for your body to grow new tissue and collagen until the Microspheres are also safely and naturally absorbed into your body.
Radiesse is priced at $745.00 per syringe.
