Definition - What does Radiesse mean?
Radiesse is an FDA-approved dermal filler used to eliminate moderate to deep wrinkles and folds, like the nasolabial folds or marionette lines. Radiesse can also restore lost volume in both the face and the back of the hands. The final results are enhanced, firm, smooth skin with a lifting and contouring effect.
TheConsultation explains Radiesse
The calcium-based, gel formulation of Radiesse provokes new collagen production, which leads to volume restoration that may last at least one year in many patients. However, the results are temporal, as it consists of microspheres that gradually break down and are cleared by the body naturally. The process is simple, comfortable and quick and patients can see durable results immediately after treatment. With the addition of the lidocaine to the initial formula, even the slightest pain is erased not only during injection but throughout the first hour post-treatment. Once injected, you can see even the deepest wrinkles eliminated, plumper skin or a contoured lower face. As the brand recommends, it should not be used by people who have an allergy to any component of the formulation, suffer from bleeding disorders or by women who are pregnant or breastfeeding.
