Radiesse® is a dermal filler that can be very useful in filling in lines and wrinkles that appear around the mouth and nose. It can also be used for lip augmentation, giving the lips a more youthful, sensual appearance. This treatment may also help add volume to the cheeks in patients who suffer from lipoatrophy (hollowness in the cheeks). One thing that sets Radiesse® apart from some other injectable fillers is that it actually stimulates the growth of new collagen in the skin, helping results to last a very long time – in some cases up to two years. Injections of Radiesse® are administered into the areas targeted for treatment in a procedure that typically takes about 15 minutes. There is no allergy testing necessary for Radiesse®, and most patients can resume daily routines immediately after treatment.
