What is RADIESSE®?
RADIESSE® is a dermal filler that is indicated for hand augmentation to correct volume loss in the back of the hands, and for smoothing 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).
What is RADIESSE® Made From?
RADIESSE® is made of tiny calcium-based microspheres suspended in a water-based gel. The calcium microspheres are similar to minerals found naturally in the body so allergy testing is not required. Over time, the body absorbs the microspheres and gel, leaving behind only natural collagen.
How does RADIESSE® work?
Once injected, RADIESSE plumps the skin to give the appearance of a smoother surface. Over time, RADIESSE works to stimulate the body to produce collagen naturally.1 Ultimately the body absorbs the product and leaves behind the natural collagen for long-lasting results.2
Where can RADIESSE® be injected?
RADIESSE® can be injected in the following locations*:
- Smile lines: also called the nasolabial folds, are the lines that run from the corners of the nose to the corners of the mouth
- Marionette lines: the lines that run downward from the corners of the mouth
- Corners of the mouth: also called the oral commissure, if these are turned downward it can make you look as though you’re frowning
- Pre-jowl fold: the area on either side of the chin, where skin can sag due to loss of facial volume
- Chin wrinkles: horizontal lines that can form on your chin and distract from your smile
*RADIESSE® is FDA-approved for correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds.
What is the difference between RADIESSE® and other Dermal Fillers?
RADIESSE is the only dermal filler available composed of calcium-based microspheres, and has been shown to stimulate the natural production of collagen, for results that may last up to a year or more in many patients. Additionally, in clinical studies with leading hyaluronic acid injectable dermal fillers, results showed that RADIESSE® patients were more satisfied with their results than patients treated with other leading wrinkle fillers. In addition, 30% less RADIESSE® may be needed for correction when compared to Perlane®injectable gel.
Enhanced Patient Comfort
Don’t let the needle scare you – with RADIESSE®, an anesthetic can be added to the product for enhanced comfort. In an FDA-approved clinical study, RADIESSE® was proven to significantly reduce treatment-related pain when combined with the anesthetic, lidocaine. Prior to your wrinkle reduction injection, your healthcare provider can mix RADIESSE® with lidocaine so you can sit back, relax, and enjoy the immediate and long-lasting results.2,3
What that means for you is a safe, FDA-approved approach to significantly more comfortable wrinkle filler treatments. In fact 90% of patients reported significant pain reduction when using RADIESSE® mixed with lidocaine.
How long does it take to see results?
Immediately upon injection, RADIESSE® restores volume to smooth out the signs of aging. The natural-looking results may last up to a year or more in many patients.Schedule a personal consultation today at 702-688-8544!
