Radiesse dermal filler is an injectable for facial contouring, facial folds and wrinkles. Calcium hydroxylapatite has a history of safe use in otology (ears), laryngeal (vocal chords), and dental and orthopedic applications.
Radiesse is used for facial conturing and to fill moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds—the creases that extend from the corner of your nose to the corner of your mouth. Radiesse will not correct the underlying causes.
Once injected, Radiesse immediately adds fullness to your face giving you a visible result at the first treatment session. Radiesse dermal filler contains microspheres made of a natural material called calcium hydroxylapatite in a water based gel carrier.
Although treatment effects will differ for each person, in a clinical study, RADIESSE dermal filler lasted up to 6 months according to independent doctors in a blinded test. The people in this study were followed after the clinical study and the unblinded treating doctor rated some people still improved up to two years from RADIESSE dermal filler treatment.
No skin testing is required prior to use.
Generally, significant changes may be achieved in a first treatment. A touch-up may be required to achieve optimal results.
