Radiesse is an injectable material used to plump up hollowed areas of the cheeks, and deep wrinkles and folds of the face. Injected into the skin with a small needle, Radiesse not only adds volume to the injected area but also has been shown to stimulate your body’s own natural collagen enhancing the effect further.
The areas of the face on which we use Radiesse most commonly are the nasolabial folds and the cheeks. Radiesse is composed of calcium hydroxlapatite, which is not as malleable as Juvéderm but gives a more pronounced plumping effect to the tissues of those areas.
Radiesse provides a longer duration than most other fillers. It lasts 1-2 years in most patients we have treated.
