Radiesse

The small details matter. Your hands appear thin and delicate. Deep facial wrinkles and folds careen your face. What do they say about your age? If you feel hopeless about returning volume to your hands and midface, don’t despair. Radiesse can round out the areas where you’ve lost volume, giving your face and hands a more youthful touch.

What is Radiesse?

Radiesse is a dermal filler, much like Juvederm, that plumps up skin. The active ingredient is Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHA), delivered as microspheres in a gel. CaHA does not provoke a foreign body reaction; it is similar to teeth and bone in composition. Research has shown that CaHA injections can thicken the skin as well as increase skin elasticity, helping to tighten skin with excess laxity. Medical journals have also shown that Radiesse can stimulate neocollagenesis, or new collagen production, in addition to adding volume. Compared to other dermal fillers, Radiesse is long-lasting, with implant lasting a year to a year and a half on average.*

How Does Radiesse Work?

Upon injection, Radiesse immediately promotes volume as well as creates a scaffolding or temporary structure for new collagen production. The gel begins to dissolve after a few months while the CaHA continues to provide volume and trigger new growth. We inject into the deep dermis in order to avoid nodule formation or the development of small product concentrations, which can create bumps. You can expect unclumped, smooth and plumped up skin following your injection!

Who Should Get Radiesse?

If your skin is becoming papery and translucent or if it is wrinkled and folded on your face or hands, Radiesse Carlsbad may help! However, you should not be pregnant, have a bleeding disorder or experience severe allergies, to Lidocaine or any other ingredients. Please inform us if you scar easily or have had other skin treatments, so we can ensure your experience will be valuable.

What Should I Expect During and After the Procedure?

During your injection visit, you should expect to receive an injection with Lidocaine, an anesthetic that helps minimize pain. The injection may hurt just like any other, but the pain subsides rather quickly. Within a few days, you may experience some itching, bruising, redness or lump formation, as well as difficulty moving hands. Of course, more severe side effects such as intense pain during procedure, vision changes and white-appearing skin are worth mentioning to us.*

When Do Results Show?

As previously mentioned, results show virtually the next day and may last over a year! Remember, results will vary on an individual basis.*

Where Can I Get Radiesse?

Lift your face all over, because Radiesse is a versatile dermal filler. Here are some problems the Radiesse filler can treat:

  • Smile Lines – Did you know they make you look older? Pronounced nasolabial folds, or smile lines, can add years to your appearance. Smooth them out with a long-lasting dermal filler. Because Radiesse Carlsbad can continue to replenish lost volume over time, use in this area is highly recommended, as smile lines are pernicious and often a strong indicator of age.
  • Marionette Lines – Has anyone ever told you that you looked angry when you were merely making a straight face? That could be those static wrinkles known as marionette lines, or the jagged edges framing your mouth and running down toward your chin. Fortunately, this wrinkle treatment can smooth them out so you look less irritable.
  • Pre-Jowl Folds – If your skin sags around your lower chin area, you may have a wavy textural appearance. This looks bad compared to the tighter, firmer skin of your youth. Don’t let this skin (which may be ready to drop and become jowls!) detract from your facial appearance.
  • Corners of the Mouth – Your mouth corners turn slightly downward to make a frowning, mad appearance. This is a common part of aging and one of the worst, since it does not accurately reflect how you feel inside. Don’t let the corners near your lips give the wrong impression. People already miscommunicate a lot; take away a too-obvious justification.
  • Chin Wrinkles – Are you concerned that people are staring at your chin and not your mouth when you talk? Welcome to the club. Chin wrinkles are stubborn. Even when you seem to smooth them out, they pop right back. Have a real intervention with Radiesse.
