Radiesse®

Wellington, West Palm Beach, Lake Worth, Royal Palm Beach, Loxahatchee

Radiesse® (formerly called Radiance) is a biocompatible, non-toxic, non-allergenic filler that reduces the appearance of wrinkles and skin folds around the mouth and nose, and fills certain scars. Radiesse® is very popular because it lasts about 12-18 months after a few treatments.

Radiesse® is made out of unique calcium-based microspheres that are suspended in a natural gel. The calcium-based microspheres in Radiesse® are nearly identical in composition to the bones found in all people. This means that there is no need to do any skin test before being treated with Radiesse®. Although the cosmetic use of Radiesse® is fairly new, Radiesse® has been used for many years in throat surgery. Radiesse® is an extremely safe product.

Who uses Radiesse®?
Radiesse® clients are typically between the ages of 25 and 60 but there are no age restrictions. Radiesse® usually provides up to 80 percent improvement immediately after treatment. Since Radiesse® treatments are temporary, treatments may need to be repeated in the future to maintain the results. One of the unique properties of Radiesse® is that it stimulates the skin to make its own new collagen. Many clients feel they look better even after the Radiesse® has completely dissolved because of the new collagen that is left behind.

Radiesse® is FDA approved to correct wrinkles and folds around the nose and mouth, including Nasolabial Folds. Radiesse® is also frequently used off label to:

- Enhance cheek bones
- Enhance chins
- Correct defects in facial contour

Although there are exceptions, Radiesse® is not used to enhance the size or shape of lips because the motion of the lips can cause the Radiesse® to create lumps. In other locations, lumps are rare. If Radiesse® does cause a lump it is usually not visible.

How Radiesse® is Applied...
The Radiesse® treatment is performed by injecting the Radiesse® underneath the wrinkle or fold or over the area that needs enhancement. Treatments with Radiesse® take about 15-30 minutes. Patients return to work or home immediately after the Radiesse® injections are finished. The results of a Radiesse® treatment can be seen immediately. There may be some swelling and bruising that usually resolves within a week. More serious complications with Radiesse® are possible but rare. Radiesse® can last two years or more, but touchups may be necessary throughout this time period. Normal activities can be resumed immediately after a Radiesse® treatment.

What Makes Epilution Different for Radiesse® Treatment
If you have ever had Radiesse® (or any other dermal filler) injected into your face, you probably remember that it hurt. Doctors have tried using multiple techniques to reduce the discomfort including dental blocks, local anesthetic injections, topical anesthetics, topical ice and others. All of these techniques have significant drawbacks. We have developed a technique which does not require any of the above techniques and DRAMATICALLY reduces the discomfort. Let us show you that you can have the results you want without the pain. You will be amazed by your treatment with Radiesse!
