Radiesse® is a dermal filler used to lessen the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. This injectable works to fight the signs of aging to restore a more youthful appearance. It can be used on the face as well as the hands.
This dermal filler is effective in treating deep wrinkles, particularly the lines that form around the nose and the mouth areas. You may know these wrinkles as marionette lines, smile lines or nasolabial folds. Radiesse® can also treat scars and dimples in the chin. The active ingredient is the natural substance calcium hydroxylapatite. Since this ingredient is found in the human body, you won’t need to undergo an allergy test prior to treatment with Radiesse®, as such a substance is highly unlikely to cause an allergic reaction of any kind.
What makes this product particularly effective in treating the deepest of wrinkles is its unique formula consisting of a gel solution containing microspheres, or small particles. This unique combination settles deeply into skin crevices, creating a natural-looking result.
Radiesse® offers some particularly unique benefits. It is an effective method for treating deep lines and wrinkles without invasive surgery. The formula in Radiesse® works gradually over the first three months to add plumpness to your skin. Following this time, the innovative microspheres work to stimulate the growth of collagen within your skin. It’s this collagen renewal that allows the results obtained to last for up to two years.
If your face is showing common signs of aging, like smile lines and other deep wrinkles around the nose and mouth, you are likely a good candidate for Radiesse®. It’s also possible to enhance your profile through the use of Radiesse® in place of more invasive implant surgeries for the cheeks, nose or chin.
