Radiesse® injectable filler is one of the most popular wrinkle treatments available today, with well over one million syringes administered worldwide since 2002. Radiesse® has a unique composition known as calcium hydroxylapatite–a safe, bio-compatible, and durable substance consisting of microspheres suspended in a water-based gel.
At BodEvolve, we use Radiesse® to treat the following conditions:
- Nasolabial folds: extending from the side of the nose to the corner of the mouth
- Marionette lines: extending down from each side of the mouth
- Facial fat loss: loss of volume due to aging or another condition
Cosmetic surgeons have also used Radiesse® for several off-label uses such as nasal augmentation, cheek augmentation, and correction of depressed scars.
During treatment with Radiesse®, we use a fine needle to inject the filler into the sub-dermal plane of specific areas. A topical anesthetic or ice pack may be used to minimize pain. After injection, the site is gently massaged to help ensure a smooth result.
Results are immediate and last approximately 10-14 months. There is no downtime necessary, so you can get right back to your normal routine. Although Radiesse® is well tolerated by most patients, some have experienced minor issues like redness, swelling, itching, and bruising.
