What is Radiesse?
Radiesse is an FDA approved dermal filler that is different from many others since it is made from calcium hydroxyapatite instead of hyaluronic acid. Radiesse combines calcium hydroxyapatite with a hydrogel carrier that can be used in many areas of the body but is particularly advantageous in adding volume to areas of bone deficiency. This year has been the year of the jawline, so we have developed several protocols combining Radiesse with Facetite to give stronger jawline with extra definition. Click here to learn more.
What areas of the face and body can be treated with Radiesse?
How long does Radiesse last?
Radiesse can last up to one year. Many see longer lasting results due to the product’s ability to stimulate the body to form new collagen in the area where it was injected. Most people get a touch up treatment at about once per year for best results.
Is there downtime after Radiesse injection?
Some patients experience mild swelling and soreness for 24-48 hours after injection. As will any filler injection, there is always risk of bruising.
