Radiesse

What it is: 

  • Calcium hydroxylapatite particles that create a scaffold to support and stimulate the growth of your own collagen
  • Radiesse® is made from the same minerals found in our bones, so it carries little risk of allergic reaction (unlike collagen)
  • It can not only fill in facial folds and wrinkles, but it can restore facial volume
  • This cannot be used in the lips because of its opaque color, but it is great to instantaneously improve the lines that form from smiling that connect the nose to the mouth (nasolabial folds)

 

Duration:

  • Lasts 12 – 18 months, although the procedure can be repeated as often as you wish

 

Where they can be used:

  • Cheeks
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Nose (nonsurgical rhinoplasty)
  • Chin
