Radiesse can be used to shape the cheeks, chin and jawline. You can also fill in the nasolabial folds and marrionette lines with Radiesse. The effects last ~ 12months and seem to decrease around the 9th month after the initial injections. Radiesse can now be mixed with numbing solution (Lidocaine) which makes the injections much more comfortable. The entire treatment takes about 10-15 minutes and you can walk out of our beverly Hills office with a more youthful, attractive face.
Cheek area can be shaped and softened. The chin can be augmented and shaped. The jawline can be widened, augmented and given an increased flare imparting a more rugged, angular and handsome appearance to the face. The height of the nose can be increased and of course the facial folds and indentations can be filled using Radiesse.
There may be some residual swelling for a day or so using Radiesse over Perlane but some of our patients are willing to have that for the added longevity of the correction ( 12 months versus 9 months in our opinion).
Because the filler lasts about a year, you must be certain that the Radiesse is injected in the right place in the proper amount in order to make your face more aesthetic and naturally attractive. We have seen numerous patients, who had Radiesse injected elsewhere, where the face was deformed because the cheeks were too large…too wide or some other aesthetic issue. Learn the proper facial and body aesthetics you need to know in my new book: “What’s Your Number…the palmer code.
WE frequently combine Radiesse injectios with nasolabial micro-lipo and our “Celebrity Face Lift”to make people look 10 years younger in 90 minutes or less.
