Radiesse for Smile Lines
Radiesse is safe and effective FDA approved dermal filler used for the correction of facial lines, wrinkles and folds, including the deepening of nasolabial folds, accentuated smile lines (sometimes called “marionette lines”), fallen cheek pads and sagging jaw lines. It provides more longevity than any of the other leading dermal fillers on the market today. Radiesse is made of unique calcium-based microspheres that are suspended in a natural gel that is injected into the skin during a minimally invasive procedure. The results from Radiesse injections are immediate. For the first three months after injection, Radiesse acts as a typical filler substance by ‘filling’ lines and wrinkles and plumping up the skin. Then due to its unique collagen-generating properties, Radiesse stimulates new tissue development for extended correction for up to an additional year. The aesthetic benefits from Radiesse last for a total of 9-12 months Temporary swelling occurs after Radiesse injections for up to two days and cannot be used in the lips.
