Radiesse

***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

Radiesse injections are generally safe, effective, non-surgical and painless to minimally painful without any significant downtime. We use proven safe, gentle and easy anesthetic options for your added comfort; including, prescription topical anesthetics and injectable local anesthetic. Looking younger and less wrinkled begins immediately. However any swelling & bruising that may occur masks final results until gone. To minimize bruising and swelling, avoid aspirin & aspirin containing products for at least one week prior Radiesse injections, if possible and avoid ibuprofen (i.e. Advil, Motrin) for 3 days prior Radiesse injections. Avoid other blood thinners per your prescribing physician’s recommendation. Contraindications include allergy to Radiesse, pregnancy and nursing and significant bleeding disorders. Also, avoid injecting into infected skin. Lips and under eyes are generally avoided due to lack of safety data. The most common side effects are bruising, redness, swelling, pain and itching. Reversible lumps or bumps (i.e. nodules) have been rarely reported to occur. Serious adverse events are rare, but may include tissue damage from unintended intravascular injection, allergic reaction and infection. Minimize strenuous activity and avoid extensive sun or heat exposure for 24 hours after Radiesse injections and until any swelling or redness has resolved. Ice / cold packs and ibuprofen may be used after injections as needed. Results usually last from 1 to 2 years or sometimes, longer.
