Made of a calcium crystalline material (Calcium Hydroxylapetite) Radiesse is a long-lasting dermal filler. It is be used deep in the tissues as a volume filler. It works very well in medium to deep folds around the mouth, chin (Nasolabial and Melolabial folds) and cheeks. Use in the lips should be avoided as it will cause lumps to form and stiffness in the lips.
Radiesse is relatively long lasting, with a filling effect lasting 18 months and in some cases even longer. It is injected underneath the skin. Numbing cream is first placed on the skin followed by injections near the major nerves to the lips and lower face. For most, it is a relatively pain-free experience. Most people will have some bruising near the injection site for 2-5 days following injection. Makeup can be used right away, if necessary.
