As we age, natural collagen breaks down resulting in wrinkles and loss of facial volume. To restore and refresh our youthful appearance, Radiesse® Volumizing filler is used to fill in spaces underneath deep folds and wrinkles. It is made of calcium-based microspheres that are suspended in a water-based gel. Once injected, the results are immediate and continues to stimulate the body to produce its own natural collagen. Unlike other dermal fillers, it continues to work over time. The results last up to one year.
Where are the most common areas to inject Radiesse®?
- Smile lines – Nasolabial folds
- Marrionette lines
- Chin Wrinkles
- Corners of the mouth
- Nose and Chin augmentation
Dr. Kim selects the injection sites and prepares them. Because Radiesse® has a numbing agent, lidocaine, in the syringe, Dr. Kim directly injects to the area(s).
The results are immediate and stimulates our natural collagen to grow. The injection sites may be red for a few hours, but you may resume to normal activities.
