Radiesse is the only dermal filler that uses calcium-based microspheres to work deeply to restore volume on the hands and even the lower face. This injectable gel initially does the work of giving you the volume you desire. As time goes on, the calcium stimulates the body’s naturally-occurring collagen, causing your skin to produce more of its own filler. This then adds volume to your hands, making them look more youthful by reducing the appearance of tendons and veins. This filler can last well over a year. The ingredients in Radiesse are non-toxic, non-allergenic, and compatible with your body’s tissues.
What Is a Radiesse Treatment Like?
Radiesse treatments are performed in the office. The injections contain lidocaine which reduces the pain that patients may experience at the injection site and make the treatment more comfortable. These treatments last approximately 30-45 minutes, depending on the number of injections you will need. Because there is no downtime, patients can resume normal routines immediately after their treatment but will be asked to minimize strenuous activities and sun exposure for a short period of time. Some patients experience swelling redness or itching at the injection site which will subside within 24 hours.
