Radiesse® Volumizing Filler is an injectable calcium hydroxylapatite wrinkle filler that works by immediately restoring facial volume to smooth out the signs of aging. Once injected, not only does it immediately add volume but over time, Radiesse® Volumizing Filler begins to stimulate the production of the body’s natural collagen for results that may last up to a year or more in many patients. This soft tissue filler is also frequently used to contour cheekbones, chins and to plump the hands. It can add instant lift to:
- smile lines
- marionette lines
- pre-jowl folds
- corners of the mouth
- chin wrinkles
- backs of hands
How It Works
Once injected, Radiesse® Volumizing Filler plumps the skin and replenishes volume lost over time for a more refreshed look. 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. Ultimately the body absorbs the product and leaves behind the natural collagen for long-lasting results. Radiesse® dermal filler actually helps your body create its own naturally younger look, setting a new standard in facial contouring and augmentation.
For Hand Rejuvenation
To enhance the youthful fullness of aging hands, Radiesse® Volumizing Filler is an FDA-approved dermal filler that corrects volume loss in the back of the hands.
Fillers may be used to improve the appearance of aging hands by filling in concavities and minimizing the ‘skeletonized’ look that they acquire over time. Fillers containing hyaluronic acid such as Juvederm® Ultra Plus, Juvederm® Voluma and Perlane®, as well as those containing calcium hydroxyapatite, like Radiesse®, offer a fairly simple solution with a dramatic improvement to the look of the aging hands. Results often last for as long as a year, sometimes longer.
Hand rejuvenation also consists of improving the color and texture of their skin. Therefore, often times pigmented lesion lasers to remove sun spots are performed in combination with Fraxel® laser to improve the texture and wrinkling of the skin of the hands.
The overall result of the process of Hand Rejuvenation consists of natural looking, fuller, youthful hands, with even pigmentation and skin texture.
What to Expect
Radiesse® Volumizing Filler is injected under the skin in a safe and quick procedure that can be done over your lunch hour. Radiesse® Volumizing Filler is also FDA-approved to mix with lidocaine (an anesthetic), which makes the procedure much more comfortable. In fact, in a clinical study, 90% of patients treated reported significant pain reduction when injected with Radiesse® Volumizing Filler mixed with lidocaine.
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.
Is It Safe?
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 biocompatible 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.
