Radiesse® is FDA approved new generation filler that is versatile in its application. It is used for both reconstructive and cosmetic purposes. It is made of a calcium-based microsphere that is suspended in a natural gel. The results are natural looking and long lasting (up to one year).
HOW DOES RADIESSE® AFFECT THE BODY ONCE IT'S INJECTED?
Once injected, it provides immediate volume and correction but continues to work by stimulating the body to produce its own natural collagen.
HOW DOES RADIESSE® WORK?
Radiesse® is injected below the surface of the skin in the area of fat loss. Radiesse® results in aesthetic improvement and provides an increase in skin thickness in the treated area. Visible results appear at the first treatment session. Radiesse® will not correct the underlying cause of the facial fat loss but will improve appearance in the treated area.
WHAT ARE THE POSSIBLE SIDE EFFECTS OF TREATMENT WITH RADIESSE®?
The most common side effects are redness, bruising, or swelling. These side effects generally last for a short time and are mild in nature. An ice pack may be applied to the treatment area before or after treatment to help reduce swelling.
DO I NEED MORE THAN ONE TREATMENT?
Generally, significant augmentation or restoration may be achieved in a first treatment. A touch-up may be required to achieve optimal results, and periodic future touch-up treatments may be needed to maintain the augmentation or restoration.
WHAT SHOULD PATIENTS DO PRIOR TO TREATMENT?
Patients should avoid taking aspirin, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications, St. John’s Wort, or high doses of Vitamin E supplements for one week prior to treatment. This will help to minimize any bruising or bleeding at the injection site.
