Radiesse dermal filler is setting a new standard for facial contouring and augmentation. It immediately adds volume to safely contour, correct, and beautify facial features. And it continues to work over time. It has patented microsphere technology and stimulates the body to produce new collagen for a soft, natural look that lasts.
How does Radiesse dermal filler work?
Radiesse dermal filler is made of unique, patented, calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres suspended in a water-based gel carrier. When injected into the skin, these microspheres initially perform as a filler — they immediately provide facial volume for a soft, natural look. The transformation is noticeable right away. Over time, your body will gradually absorb the gel carrier, but the very tiny, smooth microspheres remain.
Once injected, Radiesse dermal filler starts a process called neocollagenesis, or the creation of new collagen. It stimulates collagen production in your own body and encourages collagen growth around the injection site. In many cases, results may last up to a year or more.
Is Radiesse dermal filler safe?
In years of rigorous clinical testing and use by physicians in hundreds of thousands of patients worldwide, Radiesse dermal filler has been proven to be safe and effective.
Radiesse dermal filler is made of calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA), a biocompatible substance that’s identical to what’s naturally found in the body. Radiesse dermal filler does not contain any animal- or human-derived components and it has a minimal risk of allergic reaction. After injection, Radiesse dermal filler will not migrate to other parts of the body. Over time, it degrades naturally into calcium and phosphate ions that are safely metabolized by the body’s own processes.
Do Radiesse injections hurt?
A variety of pain management techniques can be used during treatment to ensure complete patient comfort.
Are there any side effects?
There have been very few side effects reported in clinical trials and actual usage. However, you may experience some common injection-related reactions, such as mild irritation, edema, swelling, itching, discoloration, or tenderness at the injection site. These conditions typically resolve themselves within one to two days.
What if I’m taking medication?
Patients may need to refrain from taking some medications and supplements for a few days prior to treatment. If you’re taking medications or supplements, please tell Dr. Bledsoe before receiving treatment.
How long will my results last?
Treatment results last up to a year or more for many patients. Individual results may vary, depending on age, skin type, lifestyle, and metabolic rate, so be sure to discuss your expectations with Dr. Bledsoe.
Will Radiesse become hard or noticeable to the touch?
No. Radiesse dermal filler stays soft and will take on the characteristics of the surrounding tissues.
