What are the best areas to have radiesse
Radiesse is perfect for the Cheek area and can achieve lifting in addition to filling in this area. When placed deeply near the bone it will lift the overlying soft tissues up and creates a mini face lift. It actually will improve the nasolabial folds and jowls just by the lift. It's also great for injecting the lower face but here it is used as a filler like other products.

Radiesse is best used in Cheeks, Smile lines, and Jawline
Radiesse is made up of naturally found bone minerals (calcium and phosphate) and so it is a thicker, firmer material which should be placed in thick skin or directly over bone for the best results. Thus, the cheeks and jawline are ideal for this filler. Radiesse can be placed directly over the bone in the cheeks to give a natural lift and change the appearance of the face so that it looks younger by reversing the sagging of the cheeks that occurs with age. In the jawline, Radiesse can be used in front of the sagging jowls in the prejowl sulcus to smooth out the jawline. The last area that Radiesse is really great for is in the folds around your smile (also called the nasolabial folds). Less volume is usually needed to give the same results you would see with Juvederm or Restylane in this area.
What Are the Best Areas to Have Radiesse
The best area by far is deep over the cheek bones. This will give a softer and more youthful appearance to the face. It can also be injected deep in the nasolabial fold area and the jowls.
Areas for Radiesse
One of the more popular places Radiesse is applied to is the at the nasolabial folds. Results are instant, and almost as if an eraser was used to make those lines disappear. Radiesse can also be applied to areas on the chin, jawline, marionette lines, and smile lines.
What the the best areas for Radiesse injections?
I use Radiesse to shape the cheeks, chin and jaw line. It does work well in the nasolabila folds however due to its thick nature it sometimes can be seen when patients smile and for that reason, I prefer Perlane in the nasolabial folds.
Deep Tissue Sites
Radiesse is a thick Calcium based filler which should be used only in deep tissue injections such as;
cheek hollows and
flat bony prominences.
I inject Radiesse in patients with flat cheek bones to avoid cheek implant surgery. It is also very effective in filling dents on the lower jaw bone to camouflage depression in front of the jowls.
Radiesse: the injectable implant
I have utilized Radiesse in a fashion I would call the injectable implant. It can be used to simulate cheek or chin or small nasal implants as well as filling the nasolabial folds.
Best areas for Radiesse
Radiesse is an excellent "foundational filler", meaning it should not be placed too superficially. I find it is excellent in cheeks, cheekbones, nasoloabial folds as well as along the jaw line. An experienced injector will advise on the best filler and location for you.
