Radiesse is able to give excellent results for applications such as:
1) Nasolabial folds and laugh lines
2) Under eye wrinkles and dark circles
3) Mild to moderate jowls
4) Non-surgical cheek lift
5) Non-surgical chin augmentation
6) Non-surgical nose job
This particular dermal filler is unique because it is made of tiny calcium based microspheres (calcium hydroxyapatite Ca10(PO4)6(OH)2) This is why it can lift and provide structure instead of just filling creases and depressions.
Once it is injected the particles will create a scaffold layer under the skin. They will adjust in different densities and configurations to conform to surrounding areas of tissue.
This is why natural looking results can be attained in both soft and firmer tissues within the face.
New collagen tissue then grows on the calcium matrix for about 2-3 months
The tiny calcium particles within Radiesse make it quite ideal for improving facial features like the nose. In the past, rhinoplasty surgery was the only option. However, Radiesse can be used as a non-surgical alternative to help raise or straighten the appearance of the nose bridge.
Non- Surgical Chin Augmentation
Many people are interested in chin enhancement procedures to improve how their profile looks. Through surgery, an implant is inserted. However, it is also possible to inject Radiesse to create a stronger projection of the chin.
Radiesse can also be used to refine the shape of the face by enhancing the cheekbone areas. Here is an example of a very happy patient who had this done.
Dark Circles and Wrinkles Under the Eyes
The area beneath the eye is soft and subject to wrinkles. Many people are also concerned about the dark circles and depressions under their eyes. However, this filler offers an excellent way to correct these issues.It is capable of providing both volume & support to help make the tear troughs appear less deep and sunken.
Radiesse is a white opaque substance due to its calcium content. This makes it a better choice than clear hyaluronic acid. When light rays pass through a clear suspension, they will bend and create a bluish coloration. This is phenomenon in physics known as the Tyndall effect. Under the delicate tissue beneath the eyes, this can look like bruises. However, due to the nature of Radiesse, this does not occur.
Here is an example of a patient who wanted to improve signs of aging under her eyes. And she also had a non-surgical cheek lift using the injection.
Another patient also underwent a Radiesse procedure to rejuvenate her tear troughs and to refine the shape of her cheeks.
Here are two patients who received Radiesse to fill nasolabial folds. Both women were able to look years younger after restoring volume loss in the lower facial area.
Radiesse can be used to improve the structural areas of the face such as jowls. This is due to the calcium component of the injection which can refine the contour of the jaw. Here is an example of a patient who received excellent results
Frown Lines Between the Brows
For patients who do not wish to use a neuromuscular injection like Botox, Radiesse can be considered instead. It will not treat the muscles. However it can be used to fill in the vertical frown line creases
