What is Radiesse?
Radiesse is an injectable filler that contains calcium-based microspheres that act as a scaffold under the skin to provide lift, effectively treating moderate to severe wrinkles and folds.
The Laser & Skin Surgery Center of Northern California’s physicians are considered top experts in their field when it comes to Radiesse treatments in the Sacramento region.
How it Works
Once injected, Radiesse provides immediate volume and correction and continues to work by stimulating the body to produce its own natural collagen. Results have been shown to last a year or more in many patients, making the treatment results both immediate and long-lasting. Radiesse is an ideal option for adding lift to smile lines, marionette lines, pre-jowl folds, corners of the mouth, chin wrinkles and the back of hands.
Immediately upon injection, Radiesse restores volume to smooth out the signs of aging. The most common adverse events include bruising, redness, swelling, pain, tenderness and itching. These side effects generally last for a short time and are mild in nature.
