Waht is Radiesse?
Radiesse is a dermal filler that is designed to fill out wrinkles and folds instantly. It helps the body produce more collagen to naturally heal and replenish the skin. The effects of the volumizing filler and new collagen produced by your body, will make your signs of aging disappear.
Radiesse® treatments are performed at Florida Aesthetics and Medical Weight Loss and take about 60 minutes. Radiesse® is pre-loaded in syringes for use in treating and correcting your facial lines and other soft tissue defects. First we apply a little topical anesthetic.
Then Radiesse® is injected into the wrinkle through a tiny needle placed just under your skin. Unlike other fillers, Radiesse® is not absorbed by the body. Therefore, we do not need to over-fill the wrinkle. Your results are immediate.
Depending on the area treated, most corrections may last for up to 15 months. Some touch treatments may be necessary.
For the hands too
Radiesse is not limited to volumizing the face. It is also proven to be effective in adding volume to the back of the hands.
Radiesse® is injected into your wrinkles using a tiny needle placed just under your skin. Unlike other fillers, Radiesse® is not absorbed by the body. Therefore, we do not need to over-fill the wrinkle. The results are immediate. Depending on the area treated, most corrections may last for up to 15 months. Some touch-up treatments may be necessary.
With Radiesse, you can enjoy a rejuvenated skin and more volume for over a year. Radiesses restores your smile without the smile lines and brings back a frown without wrinkles. The new collagen keeps your skin looking gorgeous for a long time.
