Radiesse®

Radiesse® is a type of dermal filler that is used to fill deficient areas of the face and hands by adding volume to tissue that is deflated and thin. It is the only dermal filler that is FDA approved to be used in both the face and hands. Radiesse® is different than other dermal fillers in that it is made of Calcium Hydroxyapatite (CaHA) microspheres suspended in a gel. After being injected into the tissue, the Radiesse® stimulates the body to form its own collagen that theoretically is present long after the Radiesse® is absorbed. Radiesse® is a great option for contouring of the cheek bones and jawline. It can be used to improve the projection and height of the cheek bones and also increase the definition of the jawline. Another benefit of Radiesse® is that it is long lasting, results of treated areas can last as long as 1 to 2 years.

The indications for dermal fillers such as Radiesse®, are to reduce the signs of aging but also to contour the face and improve the structure, aesthetic balance, and symmetry of the face. As we get older, we show signs of aging because our skin and tissue thins and descends. As this happens, facial wrinkles, depressions, and asymmetries develop and become more noticeable. Dermal fillers have become increasingly common because they are non-invasive, not permanent, cost effective, and the recovery time is minimal.
