Radiesse is a dermal filler that is used widely to diminish the appearance of lines, wrinkles, and facial folds. It’s a very popular facial filler! Along with the long-lasting results it gives for the purpose of aesthetics, Radiesse is also FDA-approved to treat vocal cord deficiencies, maxillofacial defects, and is used to treat facial wasting (facial lipoatrophy) in patients with HIV.
Radiesse is used in the treatment of deep wrinkles and lines around the nose and mouth, which includes nasolabial folds, smile lines, and marionette lines. The filler has small microspheres that are suspended in a solution that is gel-like. The microspheres are comprised of calcium hydroxylapatite — a substance already found in the body — so no allergy test is needed before Radiesse injections.
After treatment, for the first three months, Radiesse acts as a cosmetic filler, diminishing lines by plumping up the skin. Following this, Radiesse microspheres stimulate the natural growth of collagen and cause the development of new tissue for longer results that may last up to two years! Radiesse is also beneficial for chin dimples, scars, vocal cord deficiencies, oral and maxillofacial defects, and facial lipoatrophy, which is an effect of HIV that can be very stigmatizing.
Radiesse can address a variety of corrective and cosmetic needs and is a versatile treatment. Treatment areas include, smile and frown lines, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, cheek enhancement, chin reshaping, jaw line contouring, nasal obstruction, facial lipoatrophy, vocal cord correction, and bridge or nasal augmentation.
