Radiesse is a relatively new and very effective way we have found of plumping the skin and getting rid of unsightly lines, wrinkles and crows feet. It's also excellent for treating acne scars and blemishes. Radiesse is a dermal filler, meaning that, similarly to Botox and Restylane, we will inject a tiny amount of the solution underneath the skin in order to plump it out and give you a smoother and more even skin tone.
The greatest benefit of Radiesse is that, due to its cream-like consistency, it is far longer lasting than other temporary dermal fillers, and results can last up to as long as two years. The product contains a chemical structure that is made up of calcium and phospate ions, which are found naturally in the human body; namely, in the teeth and bones. This means that a sensitivity test is not needed before using Radiesse. It is also the reason for the product's long lasting effects - as it is made up of a naturally occurring compound within the body, the body's own tissues gradually replace the injected Radiesse, which dissolves away much more slowly than with other dermal fillers.
The full list of uses for Radiesse are as follows:
- Lines between the nose and mouth, or nasolabial folds - Lines and wrinkles formed around the lip line - Frown lines on the forehead - Depressions and blemishes, such as acne scars - Chin and cheek augmentation - Defects occurring post-cosmetic surgery to the nose (rhinoplasty)
