Facial Shaping with Radiesse

Overview | Treatment | Before and After Pictures

Cosmetic treatments have really come a long way. In the world of dermal fillers, your list of potential treatments is growing steadily almost by the day. But don’t let that trick you into thinking that each product can be used interchangeably! The reason more products are coming onto the market is that they are becoming more specific in the way they are used.

Are you interested in adding back lost volume to your face? If you feel like your facial contour has simply gone flat over the years, then Radiesse injections may be the exact procedure you are looking for. The reason Radiesse works so well in this way is that it is a very different material than any other filler product out there. It’s a gel made up of calcium hydroxyapatite microspheres—something that’s already in our bodies—that works as a scaffolding holding, lifting and supporting overlying tissue. While Restylane, Juvederm and Restylane Lyft are all fantastic products in their own right, they simply can’t provide the structural support that Radiesse can.

Another interesting point is that Radiesse tends to last much longer than the HA fillers. On average, you can expect to see results from Radiesse for 9 to 12 months, as opposed to the HA fillers which average a lifespan of about 4 to 8 months. It is a much more viscous gel; this feature makes Radiesse an excellent choice as a “foundational” type of filler.

If you’re looking for natural yet powerful volumizing in your midface to help recontour your cheekbones and make those heavy creases around your mouth (nasolabial folds) disappear, Radiesse is an excellent choice.

Just like with all of the other dermal fillers, the more consistently you are treated with them, the more effectively they will stimulate your body’s own collagen production. With time and continued use, you may see sustained improvement and therefore, need fewer treatments!

If you are thinking about having dermal filler injections for facial contouring, ask your injector about Radiesse. It can be a great starting point that works well and is even enhanced by the use of other, different types of fillers.
