Radiesse is a dermal filler that can restore a more youthful appearance to the mid- and lower face. Radiesse is composed of substance that is naturally occurring in the human body that, when injected form a connective tissue that supports the skin like collagen.
Radiesse will plump up the skin, filling deep facial wrinkles, and creases. A common location where Radiesse is used is in the nasolabial folds, or the lines, which run from near the nose to the corners of the mouth.
Since the substances involved are naturally occurring in the body, there is no risk of long-term irritation or rejection. Radiesse is injected directly into the tissue. Distribution is important in the treatment and treatments require several injections.
Results with fillers are seen immediately and will last as long as 2 years.
