What is Radiesse?
Radiesse, which is also recognized as “Radiance” is a dermal injectable that contains calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) with smooth micro particles. The formula that is used in Radiesse is a non-toxic, biocompatible, non-allergenic, organic gel that is designed to safely give you back a youthful, radiant appearance.
How Does It Work?
This formula, once injected into the facial tissue will help to rebuild your body’s own collagen in order to reclaim a healthy appearance, and to offer volume in order to restore the signs of aging. The treatment can take anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes. Before Radiesse is injected, a topical or local anesthetic may be applied to raise your level of comfort. A fine needle is used to inject Radiesse under the skin to help stimulate the new growth of collagen. Some patients may experience slight inflammation or tenderness at the site of injection, but the discomfort is temporary and subsides within 2-4 days. Most patients can resume their normal activities immediately after the treatment has been administered. Patients can expect their results to last as long as 12 months.
