Radiesse is made of calcium-based microspheres in a water-based gel which motivate the body to create its own natural collagen and restore your face to a more natural, youthful appearance. They plump skin and gently lift it to restore collagen loss due to the normal aging process. Dermal filler treatments typically take 20-40 minutes and the amount needed will depend on volume loss and the areas you would like to restore to its natural beauty. You will see results immediately after treatment and have minimal downtime to get back to your normal routine right away. You can bring back that youthful look and replenish your natural collagen by restoring lost volume to correct lines and wrinkles for up to a year. The most common uses include filling facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial lines and corners of the mouth. Fillers are also used to restore natural lip volume or enhance to give fuller, plumper lips.
