When a loss of facial volume causes folds and wrinkles to form, RADIESSE®, a volumizing filler, offers a unique option—it adds an instant lift, smoothing out these signs of aging for a more youthful, natural-looking appearance that lasts.*
RADIESSE refreshes your look after just one treatment, immediately correcting facial folds and wrinkles* This unique filler also stimulates natural collagen production, which helps extend the initial effect of RADIESSE for a
year or more in many patients.*
RADIESSE treats deeper folds and moderate to severe wrinkles such as:
» Nasolabial folds (smile lines)
» Pre-jowl folds (sagging skin on either side of the chin)
» Chin wrinkles
» Marionette lines
»Downturned corners of the mouth
Frequently Asked Questions
1.What is RADIESSE® made of?
RADIESSE is made of tiny calcium-based microspheres which are suspended in a natural, water-based gel. These calcium-based microspheres are similar to minerals that are found naturally in your body, so allergy testing is not required. Over time, your body absorbs these tiny microspheres and the gel, leaving behind only your own natural collagen.*
2. How soon can I expect results after a RADIESSE treatment?
Instantly!* Immediately upon injection, RADIESSE adds volume to wrinkles and folds to help smooth out the signs of aging.*
3. How long does RADIESSE last?
Not only does RADIESSE provide immediate correction, the natural, smooth results may last a year or more in many patients.*
4. Is treatment with RADIESSE uncomfortable?
RADIESSE is FDA approved to mix with lidocaine (an anesthetic). That means you can experience a more comfortable wrinkle treatment. In fact, in a clinical study, using RADIESSE mixed with lidocaine significantly reduced pain in 90% of patients treated with RADIESSE.*
5. How long is the recovery time after RADIESSE treatment?
There is very little downtime involved with a RADIESSE procedure. As with any injection, patients may experience side effects such as mild irritation, swelling, itching, redness, bruising or tenderness at the injection site, which typically resolve on their own*. If any of these side effects persist, contact your healthcare professional right away. Every patient is unique, so be sure to discuss your plans with a health care provider.
