What is Radiesse?
A unique dermal filler that lifts and defines your face, decolettes, body and hands. By both volumizing and stimulating your own natural supply of collagen.
Radiesse is one of the longest lasting forms of skin rejuvenation, with results typically remaining for 12-18 months. This synthetic calcium soft-tissue filler works to restore the skin’s foundation, providing a scaffold to correct furrows, early jowls, loss of fullness in the cheek area, slacking jawline and defects in the nose.
Calcium hydroxyopatite (CaHa) is a well-established collagen stimulator. In recent years, it has been increasingly used in hyper-diluted form as a bio-stimulatory agent rather than a volumizing filler to improve skin quality and firmness in both facial and corporal areas.
The mineral (non-animal based) content of Radiesse, suspended in a gel, is both biocompatible and biodegradable.
Radiesse has been approved for use on the hands as well, to restore plumpness and smoothen the look of the veins.

The Radiesse Difference
Radiesse corrects wrinkles and folds in the face and hands using calcium-based microspheres. These microspheres stimulate the body to produce collagen. Collagen is a protein that naturally occurs in the body and is responsible for the elasticity and strength of the skin. It can be used on the same areas of the body as Hyaluronic Acid fillers (Such as cheeks, laugh lines, around the mouth and jaw line. The areas it can also be used on are (The pre-jowl fold, chin wrinkles and the back of hands).
Hyaluronic Acid Dermal Fillers are an injectable gel that can add volume to your face at the injection point. They increase the fullness of your cheeks and smoothens out marionette lines that run from the corner of your mouth, smoothens vertical lip lines, plumps the lips, used in tear troughs, temples and more.
Radiesse can break the cycle of structural loss
Collagen is the essential ingredient for a youthful and healthy appearance. The degeneration of collagen fibers in the aging skin initiate a vicious cycle of cellular activity. This diminishes cellular renewal and decreased protein synthesis. Radiesse against loss of structure by providing an intradermal scaffold which functions as a mechanical stimulus for fibroblast activation and collagen neogenesis.

THIS IS HOW RADIESSE WORKS
The active ingredient in Radiesse is Calcium hydrozylapatite, has been thoroughly researched and tested to ensure
that it is safe for use in the skin. It is known as a biocompatible material, which means it won’t react badly in the vast
majority of people regardless of their skin type.
Radiesse is most frequently used to treat hollowness or deep folds in the lower and mid face. Sunken cheeks,
nasolabial folds and marionette lines can all be treated with Radiesse. It is a thicker dermal filler than many other
options on the market, which makes it particularly suitable for significant volume loss or sagging skin.
When you are seeking a cosmetic treatment of any kind. even if it is not a full surgery, you should always ensure
that your provider is a health care professional.
Without any anesthetic assistance, Radience feels like a relatively normal shot that you might receive at your
doctor’s office. However since there are typically multiple injections involved during a Radiesse session. Your
provider will use a topical numbing cream to prevent the treatment from being uncomfortable.
Practically painless because it contains Lidocaine that acts as analgesic. After Radiesse has been injected there is
minimal to no discomfort time. With almost no swelling, pain or bruising.
You will likely want to rest a little bit the day after your treatment. You should avoid exercising to keep your bruising
to a minimum, and you may not feel comfortable being in public until your swelling and bruising has diminished.
However there are no real restrictions on your activities even after your Radiesse treatment. You will be able to walk
out of your appointment and resume on with your day.
To minimize side effects, we recommend avoiding certain supplements and medications like (blood thinners), as well
as avoiding alcohol a few days before and after your treatment. You can also use medication to reduce swelling
and bruising more quickly.
Like all injectable dermal fillers, Radiesse is a temporary treatment that eventually wears off. However the active
ingredient in Radiesse has been shown to help stimulate collagen production. Which allows it to last longer than
Hyaluronic acid based fillers. The effects of Radiesse can last between 12 – 18 months, While other injectable
products can wear off in 6 to 9 months.
While the answer to this question varies from client to client, the vast majority find Radiesse to be a highly effective
and worth-wile treatment. The cost and difficulty associated with Radiesse is much lower compared to other facial
procedures like facelifts or cheek lifts. So it can be just the right option for those who are not ready to commit to a
surgery but want to improve the appearance of facial aging. This is to ensure that your results are exactly what
you are hoping for.
