Radiesse™ is a facial filler made of calcium hydroxylapatite. Radiesse™ is FDA approved for the treatment of facial wrinkles. An injection of Radiesse™ delivers tiny microspheres to fill in lines and wrinkles without surgery. Radiesse™ is particularly effective for restoring facial volume that is lost as we age such as the lines from the nose to the mouth and the jowl lines near the chin area.
Radiesse™ injections usually take less than thirty minutes. Topical anesthesia is usually applied and any mild discomfort will disappear within a day or two. Results are visible almost immediately.
