What is Radiesse®
Radiesse® is a long acting filler that is best used for injections deep in the skin. It is used most commonly to add volume beneath the nasolabial folds. It should not be injected superficially in the skin, and it should not be used in the lips. It can be used very effectively in those who have generalized loss of volume in the face to add volume over the cheeks and even along the jaw line.
How is Radiesse® Performed?
Radiesse® is administered with a very fine needle. You may feel a slight prick on your skin followed by a localized pressure that is indicative of the gel entering the tissues.
How Long Will Radiesse® Results Last?
Radiesse® injections can last between one to two years, but some patients find the best benefits with more frequent injections for re-volumizing their faces.
When Will I See Results?
Most of the results will be seen immediately, with final results visible within 72 hours. Results are not guaranteed and your results may vary.
