Often, as we get older, we can develop facial folds and creases and some areas of the face may appear hollow.

Radiesse is a long lasting injectable implant/dermal filler, which is composed of synthetic calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres, suspended in a gel carrier. These microspheres, once injected, provide scaffolding, into which the body's own tissue can grow, thereby maintaining the implant in place.

CaHA is a biomaterial with over twenty years of use in orthopaedics, neurosurgery, dentistry and ophthalmology and is the primary mineral constituent of bone and teeth. Radiesse is created by suspending CaHA in a common water based carrier. Because the characteristics are similar to bone and teeth, it is naturally compatible with the body.

Radiesse is synthetic and man made, similar to a calcium phosphate and has been extensively tested in clinical trials for over 7 years, with good safety and efficacy results

Radiesse can be used on many different areas of the face including:

  • Nasolabial folds (laughter lines)
  • Chin/cheek augmentation
  • Depressed scars
  • Restoring bulk to ageing/hollowed tissue
  • Hand Rejuvenation
  • Temple filling

The procedure for administering Radiesse is straightforward and will take around 15-30 minutes. It involves simple injections to the area being treated. Prior to the injections a local anaesthetic may be administered to eliminate pain.

After the procedure, some patients resume normal activities immediately, although others prefer to wait for 24 hours, as swelling or redness may occur at the site of the injection.

Depending on the area being treated, patients will usually see results that last between 8-12 months. However, individual results may vary, depending on a number of factors including age, lifestyle and skin type.

Qualified doctors/nurses will discuss the procedure before any treatment, explaining any possible side effects.
