Radiesse® is a dermal filler that can be injected into your skin in just under 30 minutes in order to give you a younger appearance and enhance your existing features. The best thing about Radiesse is that unlike Restylane or Perlane®, which offers temporary results lasting six to nine months, Radiesse® continues to improve your skin over time by stimulating your body’s production of its own collagen, lasting about a year or so.
Collagen is what makes your skin young and elastic—we have it in abundance when we are young, but our bodies produce less and less collagen as we age. You’ve probably heard of it before–collagen is constantly advertised as being an ingredient in firming lotions and creams. However, when Radiesse® is injected into your skin, it encourages your body to produce more collagen at the injection site, helping your body to naturally fight the signs of aging.
Although Radiesse’s® long-term results are what make it unique, Radiesse® also helps your skin to look fuller and more radiant immediately upon receiving the injection. The water-based gel is filled with calcium-based microspheres that can contour just about any area on your face,, enhance cheekbones, reduce the appearance of wrinkles, or just give an overall fuller look.
Radiesse® is known for its incredibly safe reputation. It has received CE Mark Certification, two FDA approvals, and a number of FDA clearances. Since Radiesse® is made from a biocompatible substance that is identical to what is naturally found in the body, there is very little risk of allergic reaction, and very few side effects have been reported in clinical trials or actual use. For a more pleasant and comfortable experience, ask for the Radiesse® to be mixed with lidocaine.
