What is Radiesse?
Radiesse is an injectable dermal filler that can add volume to cheeks, lips and soften wrinkles around your nose and mouth.
The active ingredient, calcium hydroxylapatite, is a naturally occurring mineral that also stimulates collagen growth in the areas treated.
Is Radiesse right for me?
If you’ve lost volume in your facial features due to aging, or are looking for a dermal filler for face contouring, Radiesse can help you reach your specific aesthetic goals.
What is getting Radiesse like?
The entire process takes about 45 minutes. Your provider will talk to you about your goals, what areas bother you, and what works best for your lifestyle.
It’s important to be informed, and your provider will answer as many questions as you have to make sure you are totally confident with your treatment plan before moving forward.
Once you’re ready, the provider will apply a numbing cream to the areas being treated for your comfort. The procedure itself is relatively quick and most patients experience little discomfort.
Immediately following treatment you may have some redness, and in the following days there may be some swelling, bruising and mild discomfort.
It’s best to avoid strenuous activities for a few days, but you will feel like your normal self otherwise!
Results are immediate and last about a year.
