Radiesse Is a Versatile Dermal Filler 

Radiesse is a dermal filler that is widely used 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 those with HIV. 

Radiesse is used for 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 found in the body — so no allergy test is needed prior to Radiesse injections. 

After treatment, for the initial three months, Radiesse acts as a cosmetic filler, diminishing lines by plumping up the skin. Following this, Radiesse microspheres stimulate natural collagen growth 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 is stigmatizing. 

Radiesse can address a variety of corrective and aesthetic needs, and is a treatment that is quite versatile. 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.
