Radiesse

Radiesse Overview

RADIESSE® Is A Volumizing Dermal Filler Used For Smoothing Moderate To Severe Facial And Body Wrinkles And Folds Along With Adding Volume To Problem Areas.

This can be used in one's nasolabial folds (the creases that extend from the corner of your nose to the corner of your mouth). RADIESSE is also used for correcting any volume loss in the back of the hands, which can make your hands look younger. There are other treatment areas of the body to help with a younger appearance.

With RADIESSE, you will use your body’s own natural collagen to turn back the signs of aging. This is because RADIESSE wrinkle filler’s unique formulation stimulates collagenesis , which is the production of new collagen. This process will result in an increased volume for a more natural looking wrinkle correction and volume enhancement. This may be why more and more medical professionals will choose RADIESSE volumizing wrinkle filler for a longer-lasting facial and body rejuvenation.
