Radiesse

A safe and exciting next generation in dermal filler, Radiesse aims to set a new world standard for facial rejuvenation. Years of extensive clinical studies demonstrate that Radiesse provides long-lasting correction of smile lines and nasolabial folds – the wrinkles around the nose and mouth.

Radiesse is gently injected into your skin in small amounts with a very fine needle. It stimulates the body to generate new collagen, providing not only immediate, visible reduction in folds and wrinkles but long-lasting improvement. Many patients who come to Sharma Skin & Hair Surgery are jubilant with those results.

Dr. Sharma is particularly passionate about Radiesse due to its ability to stimulate the production of collagen. Collagen gives flexibility, volume and strength to healthy young skin. As part of the aging process, your natural collagen breaks down, reducing facial volume and elasticity. It is this loss of volume and elasticity that results in skin laxity, facial lines and wrinkles. Together these processes rob your skin of its youthful, fresh look. Radiesse can solve these difficulties. What’s more, it is suitable for both men and women of varying ages.

Other areas that can be treated with Radiesse include earlobes, lip edges, foreheads and aging hands. Dr. Sharma is proud to include Radiesse as well as Bellafill, Sculptra, Plasma Rich Platelet Therapy, Autologous Bone and Adipose Tissue therapy in his anti-aging toolkit, offered collaboratively through clinics in London, England and now Edmonton, Canada.

Radiesse FAQ
What is Radiesse?

Radiesse is an FDA- approved, “next generation” dermal filler that is setting a new standard for correcting facial lines and wrinkles, including nasolabial folds around the nose and mouth. A water-based gel solution, it is injected directly into the treatment area and acts instantly, volumizing wrinkles and folds away. Calcium hydroxylapatite, the filler’s main ingredient, is based on a naturally occurring substance. Clinically proven to be safe, it is non-toxic and 100% biodegradable and biocompatible. Thus no allergy tests are required before treatment regimes.

How does Radiesse work?

Radiesse is uniquely able to replenish the skin’s lost volume. The microspheres that constitute the pharmaceutical product act as a scaffold under your skin, providing structure and stimulating the body’s natural collagen to grow with just one or two office visits. This stimulation continues for several months, expanding the initial volumizing effect of the injection.
Over time the miniature calcium-based microspheres slowly break down into calcium and phosphate ions. Those ions are safely and naturally absorbed into the body, allowing your own recently created collagen to take their place. Clinical studies by Merz prove Radiesse supplies long-lasting correction of wrinkles and smile lines around the mouth and the nose. Top-up treatments of Radiesse are recommended every few years.

Why use Radiesse?

Not only is Radiesse safe and long-lasting, but it can be mixed with anesthesia. The procedure is painless and usually finished within 20 minutes, making it suitable for almost all patients. Clinically proven to last one year or more in many patients, Radiesse is a method doctors increasingly choose for long-lasting facial rejuvenation.

What is Radiesse used for?

With the passage of time, tissue volume declines, producing folds and wrinkles around certain areas of the face. Results include nasolabial folds (lines around the nose and mouth), ridged temples and blunting of the youthful jaw line and angle. Radiesse is injected into the skin to compensate for the loss of volume and correct these lines and folds. It provides a natural appearance that continues to make the patient look fresh and rested, providing long-lasting, economical results.

How is a typical Radiesse treatment delivered?

Made up of calcium-based microspheres suspended in a water-based gel, Radiesse is injected into the skin using a simple and minimally invasive procedure, providing immediate, visible reduction of wrinkles and folds for long-lasting youthful and elegant looks. In many of Dr. Sharma’s patients, both in London and Edmonton, the effects last one year or more. Beautiful results and long-lasting wrinkle correction are possible with only a few treatments.
