Volume Define and Sculpt
Radiesse: Volume Define and Sculpt -
As we age our skin naturally loses volume. This volume is sustained by collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid, all of which diminish with age. The skin loses its shape and can appear dull and saggy in certain areas. Radiesse is a dermal filler that works to support these skin structures and maintain the plump, fresh look of youthful skin.
Radiesse volumises the area of treatment with instant results, it also has the ability to sculpt and chisel the jawline, volumise the chin, to add chin depth and froward projection. There is no delay in enjoying the sculptured profile, instant results turn a a weak retracted chin into a stronger more defined look for both forward and side profiles. The dermal filler acts as a scaffold beneath the skin, supporting natural collagen production, giving a natural look that will last up to a year between treatments.
Why choose RADIESSE®

collagen for long-lasting results

It is FDA approved to mix with lidocaine, an anaesthetic, to significantly reduce injection related pain
Over time, the gel is absorbed and the body metabolises the CaHA microspheres leaving behind only
your own natural collagen.
Which Areas can be treat
Nose to mouth lines, chin augmentation, jawline sculpting and tightening, jowl tightening, lower
cheek/face volume and strengthening of lax lower face skin.
How results are achieved with Radiesse®
Radiesse® works with your body, below the skin’s surface. Tiny calcium-based microspheres form
a “scaffold” to support and stimulate the growth of your own collagen. Over time, the calcium-based
microspheres gradually break down and are safely and naturally absorbed by your body. Radiesse®
does more than temporarily fill in facial fords and wrinkles. Radiesse® rebuilds the skin’s foundation
and restores a youthful look, without the risks associated with a permanent implant. Radiesse® is
injected into the skin with the use of a local anaesthetic. Results are immediate.
What is the difference between RADIESSE® filler and other fillers
RADIESSE® has the unique ability to both immediately restore lost volume and stimulate your body to produce its own natural collagen for long-lasting results.
Duration of Radiesse®
Radiesse® typically lasts a year or more. As with any filler, however, results may vary.
Prior to a Radiesse® treatment session
Avoid aspirin or aspirin containing products, unless medically contraindicated, Ibuprofen, Vitamin E, Green Tea, Garlic, Ginko, Ginseng and St. John’s Wort for a period of 10 days prior to a Radiesse® injection. Radiesse® may not be administered in sites where there is active inflammation.
What to expect during a Radiesse® treatment session
Radiesse® injection sessions normally take 30 minutes. Makeup will be removed, if applicable, and the area will be cleaned with an antiseptic solution. A topical numbing cream is usually applied to help minimise any discomfort. Radiesse® will then be injected into the skin. A chiller will be used during the Radiesse® procedure to help reduce post procedure side effects.
After a Radiesse® Treatment Session
Ice can be applied for a few minutes at a time to the treatment area to help reduce swelling. Wrap the ice in a cloth and avoid placing the ice directly on your skin. Avoid excessive sun and UV lamp exposure until any initial swelling and redness have resolved. Avoid the above-mentioned medications and supplements, unless medically contraindicated, until any bruising has disappeared.
How long will it last
Not only does Radiesse® provideS immediate correction, the natural, beautiful results may last a year or more in many patients.
Possible side effects of Radiesse®
Treatments- Most patients experience some bruising with Radiesse® injections. Certain herbal supplements such as arnica may help with prevention and treatment of bruises. Other possible injection-related side effects include mild irritation, swelling, itching and tenderness at the injection sites. These conditions typically resolved on their own within 2 weeks. As with all procedures that involve an injection through the skin, there is a risk of infection.
Radiesse® works with your body to stimulate new collagen and deliver a natural look that lasts. Radiesse® is safe and longer lasting than most fillers. Patient satisfaction is uniformly high with Radiesse® treatments.
