Radiesse® is the next generation filler for wrinkle correction. It lasts up to two years is the has the added benefit of stimulating new collagen growth through a unique calcium-based microsphere technology. These spheres are mixed in a gel carrier and, after a complete block with local anesthesia, are injected with a technique called “linear threading.”

The results are immediate. Over time, the calcium micro-spheres are broken down and reabsorbed completely by the body. New, natural collagen remains and keeps you from going back to “square one.”

Although Juvederm® and Restylane® are preferred products for fine lines and lip augmentation, Radiesse® is more dramatic in its ability to reduce lines around the nose and mouth, including nasolabial folds and marionette lines. It is especially good for lifting the cheeks and mid-face and restoring the youthful position of the cheekbones.

It is also effective for augmenting the chin, reducing the appearance of “jowling,” and making bumps or dips in the nose less evident. Please read more about Radiesse® at www.radiesse.com.

What is Radiesse® Filler?

Radiesse® dermal filler is made of calcium-based microspheres suspended in a water-based gel, and is injected into the skin through a simple and minimally invasive procedure. Radiesse® dermal filler is the ideal choice for total facial contouring. It can restore a healthy, youthful appearance, enhance your existing features, help you defy age and gravity, and increase your confidence – all without invasive surgery or scarring.

Radiesse® dermal filler works with your own body in a remarkable way. Upon injection, it immediately adds volume to safely contour, correct, and beautify facial features. And unlike other fillers, Radiesse® dermal filler continues to work over time. With its patented microsphere technology, it starts a process called collagenesis, stimulating your body to produce new collagen and encouraging collagen to grow around the injection area. Radiesse® dermal filler actually helps your body create its own naturally younger look, setting a new standard in facial contouring and augmentation.

Radiesse® dermal filler has been clinically tested extensively for years, with excellent safety and efficacy results. It has received CE mark certification, two FDA approvals, and a number of FDA clearances. Radiesse® dermal filler is made from a bio-compatible substance that’s identical to what’s naturally found in the body. There’s virtually no risk of allergic reaction, and there have been very few side effects reported in clinical trials and actual use.

Treatment with Radiesse® dermal filler is so simple and convenient, it can be performed during a lunch hour. You’ll see the results right away – and these results may last up to a year or more for many patients. The long-lasting effects of Radiesse® dermal filler can reduce the need for retreatment, which saves you time and money compared with other fillers.

Costs for these treatments are probably less than you would expect. Call us today for a consultation at 415-915-8888.
