Radiesse is one of the latest dermal fillers. The major advantage over many of the other dermal fillers is that it lasts a very long time, in fact 2 years is a standard longevity! It is extremely safe and actually stimulates the body to produce more of its own collagen. Radiesse is typically used to treat nasolabial (smile) lines and also for contouring or volumising the tissues. It does not however treat fine lines and is not typically used for lips.
The components of the Radiesse implant have a long history of safe and effective use for medical applications. Use of only a relatively small amount of implant will provide results that will make a lasting difference.
Radiesse has demonstrated durable safe results in many patients, and offers substantial benefits to some of the other available soft–tissue implants. No patient pre–testing is required due to Radiesse's unique natural product formulation and biocompatibility profile. Radiesse will remain soft and pliable and will take on the characteristics of the surrounding tissue, and will offer a durable cosmetic effect to the patient.
The microspheres of CaHA have been shown to last up to seven years clinically. Radiesse should provide a long lasting correction, however individual results may vary, affected by age, skin type, lifestyle and muscle activity.
Some patients may achieve an optimal correction on their first injection. For other patients, variability in the rate of tissue in–growth following resorption of the gel carrier may require additional injections to achieve an optimal correction.
