RADIESSE ® is another option to add immediate volume and lift in areas needed to diminish the signs of aging. Unlike the hyaluronic acid fillers, Radiesse is unique in that it is composed of calcium-based microspheres and gel which act as a scaffold under the skin, providing structure and stimulating your own natural collagen to grow. This process continues for several months, which extends the initial effect of RADIESSE®. Best of all, the natural results are clinically proven to last a year or more in many patients.
Radiesse is another option that offers longer lasting effects (9 to 12 months) due to the slowly resorbing ceramic particles that it contains. Because of the risk of clumping or irregularities, it is not used in the lips but can be used deep at the bone level for temporary cheek, chin and jaw enhancement.
