Radiesse® is an FDA-approved cosmetic injectable designed to improve the appearance of wrinkles in the nasolabial folds (the area between the nose and mouth) and to help those affected by lipoatrophy (hollowness in the cheeks). This dermal filler can also be used to minimize other common signs of aging and improve the appearance of some types of depressed scars. Composed of calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres suspended in a biocompatible gel, Radiesse® works to stimulate production of the skin’s natural collagen and to help renew and replenish targeted areas. To enhance your comfort, a member of our skilled medical team will administer the rejuvenating formula using an ultra-fine needle. Radiesse® treatments usually take about 30 minutes or less to complete. Any bruising or swelling in the treated region after the procedure should fade over the next few days, and patients often resume normal daily routines immediately. Radiesse® is known to have long-lasting results, sometimes even lasting 12 to 24 months.
Radiesse® for Hands
In addition to addressing common signs of aging on the face, Radiesse® can improve the appearance of the hands. The delicate skin on the backs of the hands is also subject to the natural process of aging. Over time, the skin in this area can thin and lose volume, prominently revealing the veins, tendons, and joints beneath. Radiesse® injections can restore a youthful “plumpness” and diminish the visibility of these internal structures. As with Radiesse® treatments for other regions, this procedure is usually quick and offers immediate results. More than one session may be necessary to achieve your cosmetic goals, and occasional maintenance injections can extend the length of benefits when the initial effects begin to fade.
