***Radiesse is the ONLY FDA-approved injectable dermal filler
approved for hand augmentation to correct age-related volume loss
of the back of the hands.*** Radiesse for hands is called Radiesse Hands.
Radiesse is also FDA approved for smoothing moderate to severe face wrinkles
and folds, such as nasolabial folds.
Radiesse is an FDA approved injectable deep filler used to volumize
(i.e. restore lost facial volume associated with aging, among other conditions)
and create a scaffolding to stimulate your own new natural collagen.
Radiesse is commonly used in performing a “Liquid facelift“,
a non-invasive, injectable only procedure that delivers facelift-like results;
Radiesse can also be used to improve/plump the backs of aging hands.
Results last 1-2 years or more.
Likewise, Radiesse can be combined with most cosmetic procedures.
Radiesse is an injectable filler composed of synthetically produced
smooth calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres
suspended in a sodium carboxymethylcellulose water-based gel carrier.
Radiesse volumizing filler contains 30% CaHA and 70% gel carrier.
CaHA is a naturally occurring component of bone and teeth and is radio-opaque
(i.e. can be seen on X-rays and CT scans).
How Radiesse Works?
Aging skin loses natural support structures that help keep skin supple
and youthful. As the years go by, collagen and elastin diminish within the skin,
resulting in wrinkles and creases.
Radiesse is a wrinkle filler used to plump the skin. Injected through a small needle placed under the skin, Radiesse immediately adds volume under the skin
and over time, the benefits of Radiesse continue by naturally stimulating
your body’s own natural collagen. These natural results have been shown to last
a year or more in many patients; thus, results are both immediate and durable.
Mechanism of Action
Once injected, Radiesse not only provides immediate volume and correction,
but also stimulates your body/skin to make its own natural collagen.
Over time, the aqueous gel is absorbed and your body breaks down
the CaHA microspheres leaving behind only your own natural collagen.
Why choose Radiesse?
- Radiesse immediately replenishes lost volume and stimulates the production of your own natural collagen with results that can last 1-2 years or more.
- Radiesse provides results with high patient satisfaction
- Radiesse is FDA approved to mix with lidocaine to reduce injection pain
