Radiesse in an injectable dermal filler that can be used to smooth out signs of aging around the nose and mouth as well as restore volume to the facial features. Unlike some filler formulas, Radiesse gives instant results that continue to improve over time, giving patients a younger look that lasts.
Radiesse in an injectable dermal filler composed of calcium hydroxyapatite (caHA) suspended in clear gel. The formula not only instantly smooths lines and folds, but also triggers the body’s own collagen production, the key to stronger, healthier-looking skin. This allows for immediate results that continue to improve over time. Radiesse is also now the only filler approved for adding volume to the backs of the hands.
Radiesse can treat a range of concerns that are the result of aging and volume loss. The filler is an effective solution for those who experience signs of aging that are not severe enough to require a surgical procedure like the facelift. Those who want a quick treatment with little downtime are great candidates for Radiesse. However, with so many brands of fillers available, patients will need to ensure that the formula is right for them. Radiesse can improve the following concerns:
- Nasolabial folds (smile lines)
- Lines between the nose and mouth
- Flattened cheeks
- Poor chin projection
- Deep acne scarring
- Volume loss/visible veins in the backs of the hands
Radiesse can be injected after a topical numbing cream is applied to maximize patient comfort. A small amount of the formula will then be placed in the treatment area, either the face or backs of hands. Adley DaSilva will ensure that an even amount of the formula is placed in several injection points to create completely smooth results. The injection process can take 10-30 minutes to complete depending on the treatment area.
There is no required downtime after treatment with Radiesse. There may be some mild swelling and redness at the injection sites for the first day or two. Patients can enjoy instant improvements to their volume loss and wrinkles after Radiesse is placed. As the body absorbs the formula over the next several months, even more results can be experienced as the body’s natural collagen production is stimulated for stronger skin. This results in long-lasting volume correction and wrinkles reduction. Patients typically don’t need a touch-up session for about 9-12 months, depending on where it was used.
For the most effective and safest results, Radiesse should only be administered by a professional like Adley DaSilva. Adley will examine your signs of again and discuss your treatment options to ensure that Radiesse is the right one for you.
