Radiesse is a non-allergic long lasting dermal filler. It is commonly used to provide volume in the cheeks and to fill lines such as the nasolabial fold at the outside of the nose to the corner of the mouth.
Radiesse is commonly referred to as a “structural” or “foundational” dermal filler because it provides support and structure by way of it’s thickness. It is made of calcium hydroxylapatite, a naturally occurring component found in the bones and the teeth, and because of this, it provides excellent support. For example, when injected into the cheekbone area, Radiesse can actually relieve some of the pressure on the nasolabial fold, causing it to appear less heavy even though the injection was not placed there.
Radiesse is a longer lasting dermal filler than Restylane, Juvederm and Perlane because it is made of calcium hydroxylapatite. The other dermal fillers are made of hyaluronic acid, another naturally occurring compound. Hyaluronic acid breaks down more easily in the body and for this reason last about half the time as Radiesse. While Radiesse does last longer in the body, it is not used in as many areas of the face because of the thickness. Currently, we do not inject under the eyes or in the lips with Radiesse.
In summary, Radiesse is used primarily at our practice to provide volume in the cheek area. It is placed deep in the dermis to provide foundational support for the facial structure and is long lasting (usually 9-12 months).
