Radiesse® is made with calcium hydroxylapatite, a substance that it is biocompatible, reliable and easy for physicians to use. Calcium hydroxylapatite, or CaHA, is, a water-based gel that contains tiny calcium microspheres.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Radiesse® Injection?
Radiesse® filler is often used to correct the nasolabial folds, the lines positioned on each side of your mouth. A wide array of facial contouring treatments may be applicable, including treatment of marionette lines, sunken cheeks, depressed scars, or for nasal contouring and augmentation. If you are affected by any of these conditions, Radiesse® may be right for you.
What to Expect During Your Radiesse® Injection
Before treatment, your clinician will clean the facial area and administer the topical anesthetic for your comfort. Our providers inject Radiesse® beneath the skin at a specific depth. After your Radiesse® injection, we may briefly massage the area to develop a smooth result. When Radiesse® merges with your tissue, it acts like scaffolding for new collagen.
After Radiesse® Treatment
During the months that follow your treatment, your body will gradually metabolize Radiesse and naturally clear it away. Studies have shown results with Radiesse lasting an average of 1 year. It is recommended to return for another treatment after about 12 to 18 months to maintain your results. Although side effects are uncommon, immediately after your injection, you may experience mild irritation, swelling, itching, or tenderness at the injection site.
