Radiesse is great for adding volume to your face!

Aging is inevitable.  One of the things that you will notice as you get older is that your face starts to lose volume and appears to sag.  There are several reasons for this.  The most common reason is that the skull starts to lose bone after we pass into our 30’s.  Modern cosmetic surgeons, in their attempts to optimize facial rejuvenation, have really embraced volume replacement techniques to provide their patients with a very natural looking rejuvenation.

WHAT CAN YOU DO ABOUT IT?

In Denver, Colorado, a very common method for adding volume back into the aging face is to use a great product known as Radiesse.  Radiesse is an injectible filler that has been shown to provide long-lasting volume.  Radiesse, also known as Calcium Hydroxylapatite, can be used in many places.  It is FDA-approved to be used in nasolabial fold augmentation, vocal cord injection, and radiopaque marking, amongst other uses.  It has been used for the last several years, in off-label ways, to add volume to various areas of the face.

HOW IS IT USED?

In my cosmetic surgery practice, located in Denver, Colorado, I use Radiesse to augment areas such as the cheeks, brow, cheeks, chin, jawline, and chin.  With my specialization in rhinoplasty, or nose reshaping surgery, I prefer to use Radiesse to add height to the dorsum of the nose or fill in defects after nose surgery.

ARE THERE ANY RISKS?

Use of fillers like Radiesse is generally safe!  This fact is one thing that accounts for the popularity of injectible filler usage.  That being said, it is not recommended that Radiesse be used in the lips.  The reason for this is the high probability of lump formation after use in the lips.  Radiesse needs to be massaged after use to prevent irregularities in other parts of the face.

Restore lost volume with Radiesse!

When it comes to adding volume to a face that looks like it is deflated, there is a great option for many people.  An injectible filler known as Radiesse (Radiance in Europe) is available to those who want to recontour their faces.  Radiesse is FDA-approved to fill in the nasolabial folds, those deep lines that travel from the nostril to the corner of the mouth.  Other off-label uses include augmenting the chin and jawline, lifting the cheeks, filling in the hollows around the eyes, and correcting/camouflaging small irregularities on the nose.  Radiesse is made from calcium hydroxyl apatite, a mineral that is found in our tooth enamel.  It is very biocompatible.  Many patients will get between 12-18 months duration before the product is gone from under the skin.  Unlike many of the other fillers available, Radiesse leaves behind standing volume that future injections can build upon. Most people need their first injection followed by a booster injection at three months.
