Radiesse Volumizing Filler
The process of aging causes the collagen in your skin to break down, resulting in facial wrinkles and loss of skin volume. Radiesse® not only replenishes lost volume but also stimulates collagen production, resulting in diminished wrinkles and a more youthful look clinically proven to last a year or more in many patients.
Lift and natural collagen production
Collagen is a fibrous protein that provides a network of support for the skin. As we age, the body's production of collagen decreases, causing the skin to lose tone and elasticity as its support structure begins to weaken. Radiesse® is a calcium-based dermal filler that is unique in its ability to act as a scaffold beneath the skin, providing lift and stimulating the growth of your own natural collagen.
Radiesse is made of tiny calcium-based microspheres that are suspended in a water-based gel. Allergy testing is not required because the calcium microspheres are similar to minerals naturally found in the body. The microspheres and gel are absorbed by the body over time, leaving only natural collagen behind.
Long-lasting, youthful results
Radiesse works immediately, giving results that are natural and subtle with just one treatment. With long-lasting, natural-looking and youthful results, Radiesse may last a year or more in many patients.
Key areas frequently targeted for improvement at our Birmingham-Hoover, Alabama cosmetic surgery practice include smile lines, the corners of the mouth, chin wrinkles, marionette lines and pre-jowls. Radiesse is approved by the FDA for the correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds (also called "smile lines" or "laugh lines").
Radiesse is the only dermal filler to both immediately replenish lost volume and also stimulate the production of collagen. Even after the initial effect of Radiesse has diminished, natural collegen growth continues for several months.
Safety and side effects
As with any injection, patients may experience side effects such as mild irritation, swelling, itching, redness, bruising or tenderness. These side effects usually resolve on their own. If any of these side effects persist, contact your healthcare professional right away.
