Radiesse is a safe FDA approved dermal filler used to smooth  and fill smile lines, facial wrinkles and folds around the nose and mouth or shape facial contours. Radiesse is popular especially for filling the nasolabial folds - the creases that extent from the corner to your nose to the corner of your mouth.

Radiesse works with your body, below the skin's surface. Tiny calcium-based microspheres form a 'scaffold' to support and stimulate the growth of your own collagen. Over time, the calcium based microspheres gradually break down and are safely and naturally absorbed by your body. Radiesse does more than just temporarily fill in facial folds and wrinkles - it rebuilds your skin's foundation and restores your youthful look, without the risks associated with a permanent implant.

Radiesse  injections are customized for every patient, depending on his or her particular needs.  Radiesse cannot stop the process of aging.  It can however, temporarily diminish the look of wrinkles and soft tissue depressions.  Radiesse injections may be performed as a singular procedure, in combination with other treatments such as BOTOX®, or as an adjunct to a surgical procedure.  Soft tissue fillers, produce temporary swelling, redness, and needle marks, which resolve after a few days time. Continuing treatments may be necessary in order to maintain the effect of Radiesse over time.  Radiesse once injected will be slowly absorbed by the body.  The length of effect for Radiesse  injections is variable, it has been  reported to last 6  to 12 months.
