{RADIESSE}

RADIESSE® volumizing filler is different from the other “temporary” fine line fillers in that it is made of tiny calcium-based microspheres which are suspended in a natural, water-based gel. Since calcium is a mineral naturally found in your body, it is safe and your body naturally absorbs the filler over time.

RADIESSE® is FDA approved to instantly fills the lost volume in your face and hands.  RADIESSE® continues to work by stimulating your body to produce its own natural collagen and thus your natural results last longer!

RADIESSE® is the only FDA approved filler to correct excessive volume deficits that occur due to age-related volume loss of the hands.

 RADIESSE® is a wrinkle filler used to plump the skin and injected through a small needle and placed under the skin. Immediately, this filler works to add volume under the skin and over time, the benefits of RADIESSE continue by naturally stimulating your body’s own natural collagen. The results have been shown to last a year or more in many patients, making the treatment results both immediate and long lasting.

WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS?

Immediately. You may also see some additional swelling due to the injections for the first 2-3 days.

HOW LONG WILL RESULTS LAST?

Typically, benefits from RADIESSE® last 12-24 months. Individual results will vary and you should discuss this with us when you come in for your treatment. You may need “touch up” treatments to maintain optimal correction of wrinkles.
