Radiesse Filler is the first FDA approved CaHA Filler giving patients who try it immediate and long-term results. Whether you need improvements in the lower face or in your hands, Radiesse Filler gives you that smooth feeling that you’ve been wanting for so long! Radiesse can be used for both skeletal or veiny hands as well as moderate fine lines and wrinkles. It’s considered a lunch-time filler so it’s quick and non-invasive. Calcium hydroxylapatite is the substance that makes up Radiesse filler, and the ingredient that creates a smoother, fuller look to your face and hands.
if Dermal Fillers like Radiesse and others are right for you, let’s first discuss exactly what they are. Radiesse is one of the most familiar of the various Dermal Fillers. Radiesse is a material that can be applied internally (intradermally) to help add volume, lift and/or plump your skin thus removing the severity and appearance of wrinkles. As we age, we naturally lose volume in our face and as a result, gravity takes over. The skin will actually droop downward. The once favorite parts of our face (once full, elastic) like our cheeks, lips, chin and forehead ultimately lose the battle with gravity allowing your facial “fat pads” underneath to show. If that weren’t bad enough, the bones in the face also change which can also contribute to an aging appearance. As we age, our bones tend to decrease in volume.
Have you ever seen a “shrinking, little old lady?” Over a matter of months it seems like she shrank 4 inches. Well, that’s because she did! Like the rest of the bones in our body, our face bones shrink. The upper jaw, the lower jaw, our cheek bones etc. all shrink. As this occurs your face starts to look less full with skin drooping like meat curtains. Trust me, you don’t want that.
How Does Radiesse Work?
Because our skin starts to lose elastin and collagen over time, we start to lose volume in it. Radiesse helps in the increase of both of these elements to give that voluminous look back to our skin. When we inject the Radiesse CaHA gel into our skin, we immediately start to see results and volume starts to be put back into our faces. The CaHA particles start to separate into our skill later developing elastin and collagen growth.
How is Radiesse done?
Radiesse is injected under the skin in a quick procedure that can be done over the lunch hour.
How soon will I see results afterwards?
Immediately upon injection, Radiesse helps smooth out lines and wrinkles. The natural-looking results last a year or more in many patients.
What are the side effect of Radiesse?
Common side effects of Radiesse include bruising, redness, swelling, pain, itching at the site of injection.
