Radiesse

What It Is

Radiesse works with your body, below the skin’s surface to stimulate the natural production of collagen. Tiny calcium-based microspheres, called Calcium Hydroxyapatite, form a “scaffold” to support and stimulate the growth of your body’s collagen production, filling in wrinkles and helping your skin fight the signs of aging. In time, the microspheres gradually break down and is safely and naturally absorbed by your body. Radiesse rebuilds your skin’s foundation and restores a look of youthfulness. Most patients who receive Radiesse are between the ages of 35 to 60.

Areas Treated

Radiesse is a cosmetic skin treatment injected into the skin that has the ability to fill out areas of the face and hands. It is especially effective for wrinkles and folds around the mouth and nose, and can also be used to restore lost volume on the face and hands. This will help provide you with a plumper, youthful appearance.

How It Works

Radiesse injections are performed in the privacy and comfort of our North York clinic. The injections will be administered by a trained and qualified member of the Fairview Laser team within 15 minutes. You will be able to return home immediately afterwards. You will also be able to return to your regular activities, although you should minimize the amount of strenuous activity and sun exposure you receive immediately after.

Results

Once injected, Radiesse will fill in and plump up areas of the skin with volume. As time goes on, the Calcium Hydroxyapatite in the filler will stimulate your body’s natural production of collagen, which will allow your skin to produce its own, natural filler. The oxygen hydrogen, and carbon contained in the injectable substance helps re-create your skin’s structure in a way that mimics connective tissue. Eventually, the calcium substance will safely absorb into your body.

Radiesse is one of the most popular brands on the market that creates reliable and long lasting results that combat aging signs such as nasolabial folds, laugh lines, smile lines, wrinkles, or jowls. With visible results almost immediately, you will notice a gradual improvement in your skin within a week after your treatment. Radiesse is also a great alternative to a more invasive facelift procedure.

How long do the results last?

Radiesse, a cosmetic injectable, is a temporary filler and will last for different amounts of time depending on where it is injected. Where there is less movement, such as the cheeks, Radiesse will last longer as opposed to when it is injected into the nasolabial folds or lips, where more movement occurs.

A leader in long lasting cosmetic fillers, Radiesse has the ability to last up to 18 months, however this can vary from patient to patient depending on how quickly your body metabolizes the material. This kind of longevity makes Radiesse one of the most cost-effective injectable fillers out there, which our patients appreciate.
