Radiesse® is an injectable, cosmetic skin treatment used to fill specific areas of the face and hands.
Radiesse stimulates your body’s natural collagen, filling in wrinkles long term and helps your skin develop new collagen as well. This treatment is intended for wrinkles and folds around the mouth and nose, and areas of fat loss in the face. It is also recommended for the back of the hands where volume has been lost. The average age of those receiving Radiesse® treatment are 35 to 60 years old.
It is an injectable filler used to plump wrinkled or folded areas of the skin. As it works, Radiesse® stimulates the naturally occurring collagen beneath your skin. It can last for up to two years, and is a highly sought after choice for dermal filling.
Injections are administered under the skin with a small caliber needle. The ingredients in Radiesse® are non-toxic, non-allergenic, and compatible with your body’s natural tissues.
Radiesse® treatments are performed in the office, and you can go home immediately after your appointment. Treatment should last no longer than 30 minutes. You should be able to return to your normal routine immediately.
Some results are visible soon after the procedure, and full results will appear within a week of treatment. Some individuals enjoy long term results for up to two years before repeat procedures are required.
