Research suggests that we are wired to perceive a universal consensus on what faces are considered to be beautiful.

At the University of Exeter , newborns (as young as a few hours old to 2 days) were shown attractive and non attractive faces. The babies spent about 80% of the time looking at the attractive faces.  According to one of the researchers,

“Attractiveness is not simply in the eye of the beholder, it is in the brain of the newborn infant right from the moment of birth and possibly prior to birth,”

A balanced proportion of the nose, cheeks and chin typically characterize beautiful faces. While Radiesse  is a dermal filler that is often used for wrinkles and jowls,  it can also provide a nonsurgical way to restructure the contours of these facial features.

Refining Facial Contours Non-Surgically| Radiesse

Beauty is often the composite of balanced proportions among the nose, cheeks and chin. Radiesse can be used as a nonsurgical way to refine these contours*










How Does Radiesse Work?

Radiesse is made of calcium hydroxyapatite. This compound is able to provide firm structural support as needed by mimicking the surrounding tissue areas. While it can be used in softer areas of the face, like under the eyes, jowls and the nasolabial folds around the mouth, Radiesse can also be used to reconstruct firmer areas like the cheekbones, nose bridge and chin.

Once it is injected, the physician needs to mold the solution into its final form. And over time new collagen fibers will also develop in this area.

Why Use Radiesse For the Nose, Cheek and Chin?

Classic beauty standards are often characterized by a straight nose bridge, high cheekbones and a fairly elongated jawline (from the profile view).  Proportions often take a higher priority to the actual shape of individual features.

Radiesse can be injected into the nose to help correct bumps, droopy tips or asymmetries. It can also be applied to elevate the cheek bone area. Doctors can apply it  to restructure the contour of the chin so that it projects farther in the profile view. Weak or receding chins can benefit from this.

Many individuals who want to approximate these standards will look to cosmetic procedures. Not everyone is ready to commit to formal surgery. This can be because of financial or emotional reasons.

Results from Radiesse will last 12-18 months. Not only is the cost of the procedure less than surgery, but ongoing injections can adapt to changes in the face as it ages. Permanent implants may not look as good over time.

In image conscious metropolitan areas like Los Angeles, Radiesse can offer a multitude of benefits for different individuals.
