Radiesse® is a dermal filler that can be used on many different parts of the face. It is typically used as a way of addressing nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and areas around the jaw and jowl.
Radiesse® is made with calcium hydroxyapatite (CaHA) microspheres suspended in an aqueous gel carrier. Following treatment with Radiesse®, immediate improvement and volume is seen with the added benefit of stimulating your own natural collagen over time. This makes it one of the longer lasting dermal fillers with a 12 or more month life expectancy.
Dr. Maddox of Thrive in Portland, Oregon is excited to offer Radiesse® along with many other fillers and injectables including Botox Cosmetic®, Juvéderm® XC, Restylane®, and Belotero®. Some of these are better used on mild lines and wrinkles, while others are perfect for moderate to severe folds. It is common for patients to combine different dermal fillers to enjoy a complete “liquid face lift” that provides immediate and long-term results.
An appointment for Radiesse® injections is fast and simple. Patients are made comfortable in the treatment chair as Dr. Maddox determines the best areas of injection. This occurs during the initial examination and consultation appointment, and then patients are ready for treatment once deemed appropriate candidates for injections. Dr. Maddox uses a gentle, steady hand to administer the injections to augment areas of the face in a safe manner.
Radiesse® is an FDA-approved injectable dermal filler for cosmetic use, and can be used on areas of the face and even on the backs of hands. It is important for patients to discuss their skin concerns with Dr. Maddox to find out if Radiesse® is the best method of improvement.
