Radiesse Dermal Filler

Radiesse -- The "Next Generation" Dermal Filler 

Radiesse® is setting the new standard for the correction of facial lines and wrinkles, and
is the ideal treatment for Nasolabial Fold correction. Radiesse works with your body, below
the skin's surface, to stimulate the production of collagen and encourage tissue regeneration.
It does more than just temporarily fill-in facial lines and wrinkles - it rebuilds your skin's
foundation. You get immediate results and look younger, longer.

Radiesse Frequently Asked Questions

Q:  What is Radiesse?

A:  Radiesse is a cosmetic dermal filler that lasts longer than the former leading filler.
A next-generation filler, it does more than just plump-up facial lines and wrinkles.
Thats because only Radiesse has advanced calcium-based microsphere technology
that restores volume and naturally promotes the growth of the bodys own collagen.
Radiesse treatment delivers the fullness and youthful beauty of the face for a natural
look that lasts longer without surgery or the risks of permanent implants. 

Q:  How does Radiesse work?

A:  Radiesse is gently injected into the skin in small amounts with a very fine needle.
Its exclusive calcium-based microsphere technology contains tiny particles that form
a scaffold around which the body is stimulated to produce new collagen. This unique
response provides immediate, visible improvement of folds and wrinkles, while the
bodys own collagen naturally restores a fuller, more youthful appearance that keeps
patients looking better even longer.

Q:  What is Radiesse used for?

A.  Radiesse is raising the bar to become the new standard of treatment for
long-lasting correction of facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds.
Its robust, full-bodied composition provides physicians a superior level of
malleability and finesse for facial aesthetic applications.

Q:  What sets Radiesse apart from other fillers?

A:  Radiesse is different because it lasts longer than the former leading filler. Further, Radiesse offers sustained cosmetic results without the risks or drawbacks associated with a permanent filler implant or surgery. Its unique calcium-based microsphere technology provides immediate aesthetic improvement along with the benefits of volumizing facial folds and rebuilding the skins foundation for a natural, youthful look that lasts.

Clinical studies show that one Radiesse treatment provides extended results that typically last one year or longer for a worthwhile investment that saves time and
money on repeat treatments.  

Q:  Who is a candidate for Radiesse treatment?

A:  Women or men who have facial wrinkles and folds common with aging and
volume loss are candidates for Radiesse. In particular, Radiesse is the better choice
for women who are familiar with other filler products but are frustrated by the cost
and inconvenience of injections every few months. 

Q:  How long will Radiesse last?

A:  In facial applications, Radiesse provides an aesthetic correction that has been
shown to last one year or longer. Additionally, new collagen growth helps maintain
the correction for the long term. Individual results may vary.

Q:  Is Radiesse permanent?

A:  No. Treatment results are long-lasting but Radiesse avoids the risks of permanent
implants that do not respond to facial skin changes which occur with aging. Radiesses
tiny microspheres gradually break down into calcium and phosphate ions that are
naturally taken up by the body over time. 

Q:  Is Radiesse safe?

A:  In years of rigorous clinical testing and use by physicians in more than 200,000
patients worldwide, Radiesse has been shown to be safe and effective.  Its
biocompatible composition means there is virtually no risk of any allergic reaction or
concern that your body will reject Radiesse.  There may be some normal injection-
related occurrences, such as discomfort, swelling, or redness that typically resolve
on their own within a day or two.

Q:  How many treatments are required?

A:  Patients may be able to achieve an optimal correction on their first injection.
Depending on both the doctors and patients treatment preferences, a touch-up may
be needed to obtain the desired effect.

Q:  How much does an average treatment cost?

A:  On average, one Radiesse treatment costs approximately $700 - $1,000.
Because of its advanced technology, doctors can achieve optimal correction using
about one-half less the amount of Radiesse than what is needed using other fillers
on the market today, making Radiesse attainable and cost-effective over the long term.
Treatment costs will vary depending on geographic location and the complexity of the

Q:  Does the treatment hurt?

A:  Radiesse is well-tolerated. To maximize your comfort during the short procedure,
your doctor may apply a topical anesthetic to the treatment area.

Q:  Is there a risk that Radiesse will migrate throughout the body?

A.  Historical experience with implanted CaHA microspheres and extensive testing of
Radiesse confirm that it does not migrate and is inherently safe and biocompatible.
In fact, the new tissue growth around the scaffold serves to anchor the product.
