Radiesse is a long lasting filler that is very popular in our San Diego medical spa for treating deeper lines and folds in the face, as well for building structure and support in the cheeks and jawline. Radiesse is composed of calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres. These spheres serve as a scaffolding under our skin and give an immediate result when injected. Following injection, radiesse stimulates the production of natural collagen. Over time, our body dissolves the microspheres, leaving behind the collagen, which gives a long-lasting result. Patients report results lasting one year or longer.
Radiesse is mixed with lidocaine for a comfortable injection, and when combined with our topical anesthetic can be virtually pain-free. Our San Diego facial plastic surgeon and aesthetic nurses are expert injectors who have been trained directly by Merz Aesthetics, makers of Radiesse.
Injection of this product requires experience and skill, as it should be placed slightly deeper than Juvederm or Restylane. Proper injection of Radiesse can produce beautiful, natural cheek and jawline enhancement, in addition to dramatic improvement of smile lines. Another popular use of this injectable filler is for hand rejuvenation.
Side effects of Radiesse injection are rare, but may include bruising, swelling, and nodules.
