Radiesse is a dermal filler composed of calcium hydroxyapatite (CaHA) microspheres suspended in an aqueous gel carrier. It is used for smoothing moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, as well as correcting volume loss in the back of the hands.
Why choose radiesse®
Radiesse stimulates collagen-the body’s main structural protein in our skin responsible for a tight, taught, and youthful look. Once injected, it provides immediate volume and correction and continuously promotes the body’s process of generating collagen for a long-lasting effect.
How long does radiesse® last?
It works immediately, can last for up to two years, and is highly sought-after choice for dermal filling. Over time our bodies metabolize the CaHA microspheres, leaving behind our own natural collagen.
What are the results after Radiesse® injections?
Dr Ekstrom will apply a topical anesthesia at the injection sites. Radiesse also has Lidocaine in it for the comfort of the patient. The amount injected will vary depending on the site and desired results. The procedure will take less than 5-10 minutes. You may return to your normal activities right away. As with all dermal fillers you may experience minimal swelling, discoloration, and tenderness. You will see results right away, which can last for up to two years.
Are there any side effects of radiesse®?
Common side effects include bruising, redness at injection sites, swelling, nodules or bumps/lumps.
