Radiesse®

encino radiesse

Approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, Radiesse® is most commonly used for smile lines, chin wrinkles, and jowl lines that are moderate to severe. It can also be used to reduce the appearance of skin folds.

Radiesse® is a dermal filler. It is a water-based gel that is composed of calcium hydroxyapatite, a naturally occurring substance.

How does it work?

As you age, the components of your skin that contribute toward a youthful appearance start to diminish. This includes collagen, hyaluronic acid, and elastin. The reduced volume contributes to lines and wrinkles, especially when you factor in repetitive facial expressions like smiling and laughing. A Radiesse® injection distributes structure underneath your skin, which restores volume and helps the skin stimulate the production of its own collagen for lasting results.

In addition to wrinkle reduction, Radiesse® is also effective for facial contouring and correcting minor asymmetries without the need for plastic surgery methods.

What can I expect?

An injection of Radiesse® includes a type of anesthetic, called lidocaine, which reduces discomfort. The treatment only takes about an hour or less. Many patients notice results immediately following the Radiesse® injection. Results typically last a year or longer.

Side effects of Radiesse® can include swelling, tenderness, irritation, and redness at the injection site. These side effects are only temporary, and you can resume normal activities immediately following the injection.
