Radiesse® is a non-surgical facial contouring filler that can be used to treat a variety of facial imperfections, including deep facial lines, weakened jaw contour, and a disproportionately small chin. Additionally, Radiesse® can be used to augment the cheeks in patients whose faces have developed a slightly hollowed or sunken appearance as a result of aging. Radiesse® treatments are much longer lasting than most facial fillers; the results of a Radiesse® injection can last for up to 12 months. Additionally, Radiesse® acts as a scaffold on which collagen can lay down.
Radiesse® filler is composed of calcium hydroxylapatite mineral particles suspended in a water-based gel. Calcium hydroxylapatite is the main mineral found in bones and teeth. The material was originally employed as an ingredient in the manufacture of dental and orthopedic implants, and is still used in these products today. Be sure to speak with Dr. Jennifer Parker Porter about how Radiesse® injectable filler can be of benefit to you.
