RADIESSE at The SHAW Center
Radiesse™ adds volume to just about any part of the face and works in a very peculiar manner. When injected into tissues, it actually stimulates collagen to grow causing new skin components to not only be thicker, but younger and healthier. The product appears as a white substance, but when placed under the skin to correct a fold, the results are immediate and very long lasting.Generally speaking, Radiesse™ will last anywhere from 10-14 months.
Radiesse™ has very few adverse reactions, which make it an excellent filling agent giving long-term results. Very rare side effects include small palpable beads under the skin following injections. If these do occur, they will resolve.
Areas that can be treated with Radiesse™:
• Glabellar Furrows
• Tear Troughs (sunken area below the eyes)
• Melolabial Folds (smile lines, parantheses)
• Marionette Lines
• Pre-Jowl Sulcus (area just in front of jowls)
• Nasal Defects
RADIESSE filler is the only calcium-based filler that stimulates collagen production for long-lasting results. Furthermore, RADIESSE wrinkle filler has the unique ability to treat a broad range of patients no matter how moderate or severe their wrinkles are. Just one RADIESSE syringe can provide the full correction you need!
How does it work?
Once injected, RADIESSE wrinkle filler does exactly as it says: it fills or replenishes volume lost over time for a more refreshed looking you. Then it goes to work by stimulating your body to produce its own natural collagen. Over time, your body absorbs the product and leaves behind only your own natural collagen for long-lasting results.
How soon can I expect results?
Instantly! Immediately upon injection, RADIESSE wrinkle filler restores volume to smooth out the signs of aging.
How long does it last?
Not only does RADIESSE wrinkle filler provide immediate correction, the natural, beautiful results may last a year or more in many patients.
