What is RADIESSE + ?
Radiesse® is a dermal filler that temporarily adds volume to help smooth moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds.
Radiesse and Radiesse(+) are FDA approved, injectable dermal fillers.
Radiesse® is made of Calcium Hydroxylapatite which is identical in composition to the mineral portion of teeth and bone. At Rita Medical Elite we use Radiesse® to fill specific areas of the face and hands. This includes lines and wrinkles in the lower face (nasolabial folds and marionette lines) as well as to highlight the cheekbone.This is achieved by correcting the signs of facial fat loss. Leaving you with a more youthful look.
Radiesse does more than just temporarily fill in facial lines and wrinkles. It works with your body, below the skin’s surface because it stimulates your body’s natural collagen.
The effects of this dermal filler can last up to 6 to 12 months.
Side effects of Radiesse may include:
