Radiesse ® is a wonderful filler which is used especially for correcting volume loss due to age or even weight loss. Patients are thrilled with the immediate improvement in lines and folds, but perhaps our favorite treatment is the cheek lift. By adding volume to the upper cheeks, Dr. Vessely can bring back a more youthful facial contour and turn the clock back several years. Patients really do say “Wow”, but mums the word because the improvement is just subtle enough to keep this as our little secret.
Radiesse® contains hydroxyappetite, a chemical naturally found in your body. It has been reproduced in a laboratory. No animal products are used, so allergic reactions are rarely reported. Radiesse provides a scaffold for your own collagen in-growth. The result is a natural appearing volume enhancement for deep lines around the mouth and lower face, as well as augmentation of the cheeks.
