What is Radiesse?
Radiesse is a dermal filler that is FDA-approved to smooth moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds (the creases that extend from the corner of your nose to the corner of your mouth) Radiesse is also used for correcting volume loss in the back of the hands.
How soon will I see results with Radiesse, and how long will they last?
Immediately upon injection, Radiesse helps smooth out lines and wrinkles. The natural-looking results last a year or more in many patients.
How does Radiesse work?
Upon injection, the Radiesse CaHA gel matrix provides immediate improvement. CaHA particles then integrate into your skin and create a “scaffold” that stimulates production of collagen and elastin. As the gel carrier breaks down, a firm network of collagen fibers forms. Formed collagen and elastin replaces the correction provided by the gel carrier, smoothing lines and promoting renewed skin structure.
