Radiesse is an innovative product that has been used for many years in prosthetic implants in dental, facial and orthopaedic susrgery. The product consists of calcium hydroxylapatite, which is a normal constituent of the bone and, therefore, should not cause inflammatory or immune reactions. This filler is used to correct folds and lines in the face to reduce the signs of aging by restoring your skin’s volume.
What to expect during treatment?
After an initial consultation, Dr. Harris will apply a topical anesthetic and then inject Radiesse directly into the skin using a fine needle. Unlike other fillers, Radiesse is not absorbed by the body. The results will be immediate. The injection process takes only fifteen minutes and depending on the area treated, most corrections last for several months.
