Radiesse - Is it Safe and Effective?

+1

Radiesse is a unique filler composed of synthetically produced smooth calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres suspended in a sodium carboxymethylcellulose gel carrier. Because its structure stimulates the body to lay down its own collagen, Radiesse effects may last up to 18 months.

It is best used in deep folds such as the nasolabial fold, or marionette lines.

In experienced hands, it is very safe. In anyone;s hands, more than one treatment may be necessary to obtain desired results. Because it cam form granulomas or permanent lumps, it is not to be used in the lips or around eyes!

Radiesse is a safe and effective product if used correctly. It should also be used by an experienced injector. Use in the lips is not really recommended as the pull of the lips may make the substance more likely to make a nodule...
