Radiesse® offers long-lasting correction of wrinkles and lines in the face, including smile lines, pre-jowls and marionette lines, the lines that extend from the corners of the mouth, and can be used to augment the cheeks.
By stimulating new collagen production with a unique calcium microsphere formula, Radiesse® can restore volume immediately following the first treatment.
This unique filler is also highly effective at restoring fullness to the hands! The aging process can be especially noticeable in the hands, as skin becomes lax and wrinkled with time. Radiesse® can help recover lost smoothness and significantly add volume to the area.
The results of Radiesse® typically last twelve to eighteen months.

What to Expect
The most common treated areas are hands, nasal labial folds and marionette lines, the lines that extend from the corners of the mouth. Temporarily, there can be a mild amount of swelling and some bruising at the injection site. We recommend patients start on a healing supplement to prevent bruising a few days before treatment. This supplement contains Bromelain and Arnica Montana, and can be purchased through our office.
