Radiesse

Radiesse is a new generation non-surgical facial contouring filler that delivers an immediate result as well stimulating collagen production over time. The unique composition of Radiesse provides immediate visual improvement common with other fillers, but with the benefit of long-term effects. This is because Radiesse is made of very tiny, smooth calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres. The microspheres form a lattice beneath the skin, through which your body's own collagen grows. This produces the desired longer-term effect seen with Radiesse over other dermal fillers.

What is Radiesse?

Radiesse is composed of calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres suspended in a polysaccharide carrier. Calcium hydroxylapatite is very similar to the natural composition of our teeth and bones. When injected in the skin, the microspheres form a type of scaffolding underneath the skin. When the microspheres are absorbed within the scaffolding, a collagenation takes place - creating longer lasting volume in the treated area.

What can Radiesse treat?

Radiesse is used effectively as an alternative to surgery for facial contouring. Radiesse can be used to add volume to sunken cheek bones, create the effect of an injectable chin implant, create a more pronounced jaw line, or even as a method of non-surgical nose reshaping.

Radiesse is also used as a longer-lasting dermal filler to treat signs of aging caused by loss of volume under the skin. Radiesse is commonly used to add volume under the eyelids to reduce dark circles, as a treatment for sunken cheeks and to treat deeper creases and folds in the skin such as nasolabial folds and frown lines.

Radiesse for Hands - Are your hands giving away your age?

As we age, our hands lose their youthful volume, firmness and plumpness and begin to look bony and veiny.  The skin often turns thin and crepey and came become flecked with brown spots from years of sun exposure.  Radiesse is an excellent filler for the hands with a proven safety record.  Radiesse injections replenish volume to the back of the hands and provide a supple and youthful appearance instantly.  When placed beneath the skin, Radiesse lifts the skin level so that tendons, joints and veins are less visible, resultiong in younger looking hands.
