By combining a strong, immediate filling effect with long term collagen growth, Radiesse is one of the best values in the filler market. Radiesse does this by using calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres, which stimulate your body to grow your own collagen. Typically Radiesse is used to minimize the appearance of nasolabial folds (wrinkles from the corner of the nose to the corner of the mouth). Although it can be used in other areas of the face, it is not recommended for the under-eye area or into the lips for augmentation.
RADIESSE Volumizing Filler:
Delivers immediate lift to correct moderate to severe wrinkles and folds.
Stimulates the body’s own collagen production.
Creates natural-looking results that last a year in most patients.
Clinically proven safe and effective
Treating the face for a more youthful appearance can be betrayed by aging hands. In 2015, Radiesse received FDA approval for use in plumping up the back of the hands. Aging hands are characterized by visible bones and tendons. Radiesse injections plump the skin so hands appear more youthful. Dr. Lee is recognized as a Certified Injector of Radiesse to the hands.
Radiesse is the first and only dermal filler deemed safe and effective by the FDA to restore lost volume to hands. This unique gel has the ability to reduce the appearance of tendons, veins and protruding bones as well as stimulate the body to produce more collagen.
The results are seen immediately after a single treatment. Radiesse provides instant volume correction and smooth, natural-looking results.
Treatment can be performed in a quick office visit and easily added to an existing appointment.
According to a recent study, 86% of patients treated with Radiesse reported improvement in the appearance of their hands 12 months after a single treatment.
After treatment, you may experience some bruising, soreness and swelling in the treatment area within the first 2 to 3 weeks. This is a normal reaction and should resolve on its own.
