FAQ – Radiesse

Read more about Radiesse

Radiesse is a safe, next generation dermal filler that is aiming to become the new standard for the correction of facial lines and wrinkles, such as, nasolabial folds. Clinical studies prove that Radiesse provides long lasting correction of smile lines and wrinkles, around the nose and mouth.

Radiesse is made of unique calcium-based microspheres suspended in a water-based gel that is injected into the skin through a simple, safe, and minimally invasive procedure. Radiesse treatments deliver a natural look that lasts.

Radiesse can help restore volume in the face, it can help diminish lines around the nasolabial folds, marionette lines, lower cheeks/hollow cheeks, the jawline, chin fold, temple, bridge of the nose and even the back of the hands.

There are other indications that can be treated with Radiesse. They include: brow lift, border of the lips and earlobes.

Radiesse is gently injected into the skin in small amounts with a very fine needle. Radiesse stimulates the body to produce new collagen. This unique response provides immediate, visible improvement of folds and wrinkles, and provides long-lasting and beautiful results.

How does Radiesse work?

Radiesse is gently injected into the skin in small amounts with a very fine needle. Radiesse stimulates the body to produce new collagen. This unique response provides immediate, visible improvement of folds and wrinkles, and provides long-lasting and beautiful results.

Who can benefit from Radiesse ?

Collagen is what gives volume, flexibility and strength to healthy, young skin. As a part of the ageing process, your own natural collagen breaks down, diminishing facial volume and elasticity. This loss of elasticity and volume results in wrinkles, facial lines and skin laxity – all of which rob your skin of its youthful, fresh appearance. Radiesse can solve these problems and is suitable for both woman and men of different ages.

In the 20s:Collagen production slows down and then becomes dormant. This is an ideal time to start Sculptra to keep the collagen reserves active and for skin tightening.
In the 30s and 40s:Sculptra is ideal for long lasting lines and wrinkles correction and enhances cheek volume and stimulates collagen in a natural way.
In the 50s and onward:Sculptra is ideal to restore facial contours and volume and correct facial laxity and improve the jaw line and other areas and patients can achieve full face lifting without the need for aggressive surgery with the result lasting up to 5 years.

Many patients will achieve their desired result after just one or two treatments. To ensure your satisfaction with the treatment, your Physician might schedule a follow-up visit, where a touch up treatment might be recommended.

Possible side effects of Radiesse

Radiesse is biocompatible. You do not need to undergo skin allergy testing, which is common with certain animal-based or permanent filler agents, prior to treatment, however, if you believe you are having an allergic reaction to Radiesse, seek medical attention immediately.

In the FDA clinical studies there were virtually no allergic reactions. There may be some normal injection related occurrences, such a, bruising, discomfort, swelling, or redness that typically resolve on their own.

Normal injection-related reactions, such as, mild irritation, edema, swelling, itching, discoloration, or tenderness at the injection site may occur. These conditions typically resolve themselves within one to two days.
