What is Radiesse®?
Radiesse® is a dermal filler used to smooth wrinkles and folds on the face. Made up of Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres, Radiesse® replenishes lost volume in the face. This filler continues to work overtime by stimulating the production of collagen. The microsphere gel will then slowly be absorbed by the body, leaving behind your natural collagen for long-lasting results.
Radiesse® can be used to treat:
- Marionette lines
- Smile lines
- Chin wrinkles
- Lower cheek folds
- Corners of the mouth
Before your procedure, Dr. Partington will discuss your treatment options during your consultation. Radiesse® is injected through a small needle underneath the skin. Treatments are quick, and patients can return home directly after. Results can last for a year or more.
Patients will see results immediately after their treatment session. There is no downtime associated with Radiesse®, so patients can return to their everyday activities immediately after. Some patients may experience bruising, redness, swelling, or itching in the injection sites, though these side-effects are usually mild. An icepack can be used to relieve any swelling.
