RADIESSE is a wrinkle filler used to plump the skin. RADIESSE is injected through a small needle and placed under the skin. Immediately, this filler works to add volume under the skin and over time, the benefits of RADIESSE continue by stimulating your body’s own natural collagen. The natural results have been shown to last a year or more in many patients, making the treatment results both immediate and long-lasting.
Treatment begins with an application of a locally applied numbing agent to ensure your comfort and wellbeing during injections. Radiesse is combined with lidocaine to provide extra comfort, even though the procedure is generally well tolerated (the injections may pinch a little). A Radiesse treatment takes less than a half hour overall, depending on the number of syringes used and the areas being treated. Once injected, the results of Radiesse are seen immediately. It also stimulates your body to produce more natural collagen, so you may expect continued improvement. It lasts a year or more for many patients, depending on the area treated and the amount injected. Radiesse is excellent for facial sagging as it lifts facial skin very well.
