Radiesse is an FDA-approved, injectable filler that is used to restore lost volume by triggering your body’s own natural collagen production. This treatment can smooth deep lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth including smile lines, marionette lines and nasolabial folds.
Am I a good candidate?
If you have bothersome lines and wrinkles around your nose and mouth, you may be a perfect candidate for Radiesse treatments. You also must be 21 years or older, in good health and a non-smoker.
How are Radiesse injections performed?
Before your treatment, Dr. Basile can mix your Radiesse solution with Lidocaine, a numbing agent that minimizes the chance of discomfort. Once the Lidocaine has settled, a small needle will inject the Radiesse underneath the skin to add volume and smooth wrinkles. Radiesse will then continue working to stimulate new collagen growth allowing for long lasting results.
Results and Recovery
Results of Radiesse can last up to two years. Over time, the filler is safely and naturally absorbed into the body, but your natural collagen growth continues through the two years.
