an injectable volumizer that stimulates your natural collagen to grow. By restoring collagen, Radiesse® smoothes moderate to severe wrinkles while fortifying your skin’s internal structure for long-lasting results.
RADIESSE®+ is composed of calcium hydroxylapatite (Ca HA) microspheres suspended in an aqueous gel carrier.
Once injected, it provides immediate volume and correction, and continues to work by stimulating the body’s own natural collagen production – for a long-lasting effect.
Radiesse® is unique among injectables. It is made up of a water-based gel and microspheres of calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA), a biocompatible material used for decades in various medical procedures. These two components work synergistically for both immediate and long-term benefits.
When injected, the gel instantly adds volume under the skin to create the appearance of a smoother surface. Then, over time, Radiesse® stimulates the body’s process of generating collagen for a long-lasting effect. The body gradually absorbs the gel and metabolizes the CaHA microspheres, leaving only the organic collagen behind.
Radiesse® is the first FDA-approved injectable filler for both face and hands. It has also proven to be effective for smoothing minor contour irregularities and filling in dimples and dents in the buttocks and thighs, otherwise known as cellulite.
IDEAL CANDIDATES FOR RADIESSE® TREATMENTS
There comes a point when signs of aging become impossible to hide. You may notice deepening smile lines or sunken cheeks. Perhaps your jowls are becoming unmistakable and drawing attention to the vertical lines running from your mouth to your chin. These changes are often addressed with a facelift, but not everyone is interested in or a candidate for an invasive procedure. Radiesse® is one of the quickest and most effective ways to get results without surgery.
Those interested in a Radiesse® treatment should be in good health overall and have realistic expectations about the potential results. Radiesse® is safe for a wide range of candidates, but should not be used if you have severe allergies, known sensitivities to any of the ingredients or an active skin condition in the treatment area. It cannot be used if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
AREAS THAT CAN BE IMPROVED WITH RADIESSE®
Radiesse® wrinkle filler is a minimally-invasive solution to some of the most troubling signs of aging in the face and hands, including:
• Nasolabial folds
• Marionette lines
• Oral commissures (lines at the mouth corners)
• Pre-jowl folds
• Chin wrinkles
• Volume loss in the back of hands
• Visible veins and tendons in the back of hands
Radiesse® has a number of uses beyond the face and hands. It can be effective at reducing the appearance of cellulite in the buttocks and thighs and can provide contour in slight rolls under the buttocks area. It can fill in irregularities that liposuction can not correct. It can even be used to fill in the area above the knee that displays wrinkles, lines or loss of elasticity.
