WHAT IS RADIESSE®?
RADIESSE® is a prescription-strength, injectable dermal filler that is uniquely formulated to reduce the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles, immediately restore lost volume, and improve the condition of aging skin in two dramatic ways. First, the active ingredient in RADIESSE®—Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHA)—is a water-based gel that creates a scaffold under the skin to create fuller facial contours and restore lost volume. Second, as CaHA is absorbed and metabolized by the body, it stimulates the creation of natural collagen, the protein responsible for retaining moisture in the skin and keeping it firm, soft, and full. While other dermal fillers may offer one of these two benefits, only RADIESSE® provides both benefits together, giving patients instant aesthetic improvement paired with extended rejuvenation results, and has been clinically proven to last one or more years in many patients.
The loss of volume in our facial features is a natural, if unfortunate, result of the aging process, although it can also be the result of significant weight loss or other lifestyle events. Even small changes in the volume of facial skin can cause the face to appear tired and gaunt, with more prominent wrinkles and obvious lines. RADIESSE® is an excellent option for individuals who are dissatisfied with the appearance of lines and wrinkles on either side of or across the chin, lines around the corner of the mouth, or the gradual downturn of the corners of the mouth which can cause a permanent frown or angry look.

RADIESSE® PROCEDURE DETAILS
A typical RADIESSE® treatment can be performed in the office and usually lasts less than 20 minutes. Patients can resume normal daily activities immediately. In order to reduce discomfort during the procedure, RADIESSE® has been infused with lidocaine, a topical anesthetic, and no additional anesthetics are required. Some patients may experience temporary side effects such as bruising and swelling, but these are usually mild, subside quickly, and can be ameliorated with the frequent use of ice packs. The reduction of fine lines and wrinkles, and the restoration of facial volume will be immediately noticeable after a RADIESSE® treatment, and most patients will continue to see results for six months to a year after initial injections (results may be extended with periodic maintenance treatments).
