Radiesse is an FDA-approved injectable dermal filler composed of microspheres of a mineral compound called calcium hydroxylapetite, and like the hyaluronic acid fillers Juvéderm and Restylane, Radiesse can be used for the correction of, lines, folds, and wrinkles of the face.  Radiesse can also be used for facial sculpting and volumizing in patients who would benefit from augmentation of their cheekbones, jawline, temples, and even the hands. When injected into the deep dermis just under the skin, Radiesse provides scaffolding onto which the body's own collagen can grow and replenish lost volume.  Radiesse actually stimulates the production of collagen, which is laid down in the matrix provided by Radiesse.   Results are immediate, natural appearing, and long lasting (up to 1 year duration).  Topical and/or local anesthetic is used for pain control during injections. Expect 2 or 3 days of downtime due to redness and swelling, and up to a week if bruising occurs. By stimulating the body to produce new collagen, Radiesse provides a natural look that lasts for a fresh, rested, healthy appearance that still looks like you.  For more details, go to www.radiesse.com
