What Is Radiesse®?
Radiesse® is a different type of dermal filler for volume restoration. Radiesse® is not a hyaluronic acid derived product like Juvéderm™. It is an opaque dermal filler composed of synthetic calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres suspended in a water-based gel carrier. It is considered an indictable implant that allows us to restore lost volume under the eyes, the cheeks, the temples, around the mouth, and also the back of the hands.
Ideal wrinkle reduction is achieved by replenishing your skin’s lost volume, not by filling in wrinkles. Because Radiesse® is calcium-based microspheres, it is a very powerful dermal filler, but cannot be used to augment lips. It is unique because it performs as a scaffold beneath the skin. This stimulates your natural collagen to grow and provides structure to the cheek area. This process lasts for months, which prolongs the primary effects of Radiesse® Volumizing Filler.
Radiesse® Volumizing Filler can instantly provide the volume and lift necessary to reduce the signs of facial aging, and these treatments have instant results and a small amount of downtime. It also contains lidocaine for extra relief during treatment, and the results have been clinically proven to last at least a year in several patients.
Why Choose Radiesse® For Hand Augmentation?
Radiesse® is a well-proven dermal filler initially approved in the United States in 2001 for several uses, and then in 2006, specifically for the correction of nasolabial folds (commonly known as smile lines), was further approved by the FDA to correct volume loss in the dorsum (back) of the hands in 2015.
RGV Cosmetic Surgery & Vein Care has been using Radiesse® as a component of Beauty By Injection® for years, and we’ve found it to be very effective. Radiesse® has been proven in repeated tests to provide an immediate volumizing effect for the back of the hands, reducing the prominence of tendons and veins and providing a smooth, natural look for up to one year. It has been voted by a majority of panelists on the FDA to be safe and effective. (Source: Merz North America, Inc.)
Radiesse® has been used off-label for hand rejuvenation in the U.S. for years, and is approved in 52 countries for this specific use, in addition to its use as a facial dermal filler.
