What is Radiesse? Radiesse is an injectable implant that supplements your skin’s own depleted collagen. It is made from a synthetic form of a mineral found in human bones and teeth (Calcium Hydroxylapatit). Unlike Collagen replacement therapy, Radiess is not foreign to the body and will not cause any allergic reactions. It is a non-surgical procedure that does not require a skin test, since the material is the same mineral component found in our bones and teeth.
How does Radiesse work? Results are immediate, so you can determine at first glance if you are happy with the results or if you would like more Radiesse injected. Radiesee is used to treat wrinkles between the nose and mouth, the lines from the mouth to the chin and to augment the lips. Radiesse can also be used to fill certain kinds of scars.
Is treatment with Radiesse painful? Radiesse is injected directly into the skin through a tiny needle. An anesthetic cream is used to numb the treatment area and prevent any discomfort. The entire procedure takes about 15 minutes. Most people resume normal activity immediately. Strenuous activity and hot baths are discouraged the first 1-2 days after treatment.
What are the most common side effects of Radiesse? The most common side effects of Radiesse include headache and temporary redness, swelling and bruising around the injection site. These side effects may last up to 24-36 hours. A cold pack is recommended to reduce the likelihood of these effects.
How long will Radiesse last? Depending on the area treated, results most often last for more than six months. However, since Radiesse is not absorbed by the body, treatment results have in some instances lasted indefinitely.
Is Radiesse affordable? Since Radiesse is long lasting, it proves to be quite cost-effective compared to other cosmetic treatments and procedures. Radiesse is available per 1.3 cc syringe.
