Radiesse® is the next generation cosmetic dermal filler that lasts longer than the former leading filler. It is setting a new standard for the correction of facial lines and wrinkles, restoring a natural, youthful look in an easy, convenient treatment.
Numerous medical studies have shown that Radiesse is a longer lasting treatment to fill and correct smile lines, nasolabial folds and wrinkles around the nose and mouth. Radiesse is made of unique calcium-based microspheres that are suspended in a natural gel that is injected into the skin through a simple and minimally invasive procedure.

Radiesse provides an instant injectable correction for profile imbalance and visual straightening of a crooked nose. Tiny amounts produce appreciable changes in your appearance.
Can Radiesse Take the Place of a "Nose Job"?
A true rhinoplasty (commonly referred to as a "nose job") is surgical and performed by a plastic surgeon. In some instances where minor changes will suffice, Radiesse may well be a viable option. Of course injected material won't actually straighten a crooked nose or remove a hump, but the careful addition of a filler product can alter the appearance so that either defect is less apparent.
For a growing number of people, this subtle appearance change is enough that they choose the filler option as opposed to surgical rhinoplasty.
How Radiesse Works with Your Body's Tissue
Radiesse works with your body, below the skin’s surface, to stimulate the production of collagen and encourage tissue regeneration. It does more than just temporarily fill-in facial lines and wrinkles - it helps restructure your skin’s foundation. You get immediate results and look younger, longer.
RADIESSE MICROSPHERE TECHNOLOGY™
Radiesse is made of very small, smooth calcium hydroxylapitite (CaHA) microspheres, which are suspended in a water-based gel carrier. As Radiesse is injected, the gel and Radiesse Microspheres form a "scaffold," stimulating collagen production and encouraging tissue growth in and around the injection area. This "partnership" between Radiesse and your own body creates a natural look, comprised of your own tissue and Radiesse Microspheres.
Over time, your body absorbs the gel carrier while collagen has started to grow and infiltrate the area, replacing the gel with your own, natural tissue. The Radiesse Microspheres continue to provide the support and structure for your body to grow new tissue and collagen until the Microspheres are also safely and naturally absorbed into your body.
Combining Dermal Fillers for Maximum Improvement
Dr. Sedgh may use Radiesse combined with a hyaluronic acid filler such as Juvederm or Restylane to complete your treatment. For volume regeneration to lift and fill deflated or sagging facial contours, Sculptra may also be used. Skin tightening with Thermage may also be a viable option.
