What Is Radiesse®
Radiesse® is a dermal filler that has calcium-based microspheres suspended in a water-based gel.
Volumizing filler - excellent option to soften those deeper facial lines or replacing volume in a volume deficient area in faca and hands
Stimulates your own natural collagen when injected into the skin.
Hper-dilute Radiesse can used as a skin rejuvenator.
Do wrinkles, crepey skin and fine lines bother you? Would you like smoother, firmer skin with youthful elasticity?
Radiesse can be hyper-dilute and used as a skin rejuvenator.
Recent innovations in treatment show that when Radiesse is hyper-dilute (mixed with saline and lidocaine to thin it out) and injected superficially under aging skin, it acts as a bio-stimulating agent, rather than a volumizer.
The skin rejuvenating effects from this treatment are pronounced and visible, with collagen and elastin production starting as early as 4 weeks after injection. This results in long term skin tightening with progressive natural dermal thickening. This means that fine lines, crepiness, and skin laxity are reduced. The tone, elasticity and pliability of skin is markedly improved.
Hyper-Dilute Radiesse can treat:
Upper inner arms
Buttocks, including cellulite
Mid and lower face
This treatment can be used in combination fillers, lasers and other modalities to give you the best outcome. A custom treatment plan will be discussed to give you the results you desire. There can be some bruising, swelling and mild discomfort after treatment, however most clients tolerate this treatment very well and are very satisfied with their results.
RADIESSE works via a 2-step process:
1. The CMC gel gives immediate lifting and sculpting results when injected. The gel only lasts for about 12 weeks before it is absorbed by our bodies.
2. At the same time, the CaHA microspheres begin to stimulate your skin to produce collagen. After injection, the CaHA microspheres form a “scaffold” that provides mechanical stimuli triggering fibroblasts to produce collagen. The collagen stimulation peaks at 12 weeks to give the final result, which lasts up to 18 months.
Frequently Asked Questions
How Long Can it Last?
RADIESSE filler lasts at least 12 months, and up to 18 months.
One to three treatment sessions one month apart may be needed in the first year to achieve optimal aesthetic effects with maintenance of one treatment every 12 – 18 months.
Any Side Effects?
RADIESSE is one of the most studied dermal fillers available, with an excellent safety profile.
The most common adverse side effects seen are no different from any other dermal fillers. Bruising, redness, swelling, soreness, itching are some temporary side effects you may experience immediately after the treatment.
Like all dermal fillers, one of the risks is unintentional injection into a blood vessel. The chances of this happening are very small, but if it does happen, the complications can be serious, and may be permanent. These complications, include vision abnormalities, blindness, stroke, temporary scabs, or permanent scarring of the skin.
RADIESSE is not a hyaluronic acid filler, and hence, it cannot be dissolved with Hyauronidase.
