What is Radiesse?
Radiesse is an FDA approved long lasting facial filler that contains crystals that stimulate the growth of your own collagen. Typically used for facial folds, creases and soft tissue augmentation. Radiesse is great for the cheeks, chin and other facial areas where a large volume of dermal filler is required. Radiesse creates a scaffold of micro-beads under your skin that stimulates your own natural collagen to grow, resulting in a natural, soft effect.
How does the treatment work?
Radiesse is injected in small amounts underneath the skin to fill-in creases, lines, wrinkles and folds. To maximize comfort, an anesthetic topical cream or anesthetic block may be administered.
