How is Radiesse different?

Radiesse is unique. It’s the only dermal filler made with calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres — which occur naturally within the body and stimulate collagen production, eventually getting fully absorbed by the body. Once Radiesse is injected into target areas, it becomes a scaffold under the skin to achieve a beautifully rejuvenated, more youthful appearance. Radiesse actually works with the body to create new collagen in order to volumize the skin and remove the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

What Radiesse is used to treat

  • Sunken cheeks
  • Pre-jowl
  • Oral commissure
  • Weak or recessed chin
  • Facial contouring
  • Marionette lines
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Lack of volume
  • Aged-looking hands

Miami liquid chin augmentation with Radiesse

A “liquid chin augmentation” is often achieved with Radiesse. This is a treatment for those who are unhappy with a weak or recessed chin, as Radiesse has the ability to deliver better projection and definition. 

A liquid chin augmentation with Radiesse works by adding volume to the chin area and the lower jawline. A liquid chin augmentation with Radiesse is an excellent option for those who want to alter their chin, but do not want to undergo surgery or a chin implant.

What happens during a Radiesse treatment?

During the administration of the injections, Dr. Maercks will use a fine needle to inject Radiesse into the target area. Radiesse includes lidocaine to numb the area during treatment to keep you comfortable. After the injection, he may massage the area in order to obtain a smoother result. Radiesse acts immediately as a building block for the body to create collagen. Treatments typically take approximately 15 minutes.

Downtime and results

Radiesse is a fairly painless, comfortable procedure with very few side effects. Some patients report mild swelling, discoloration, tenderness, or irritation at the site of the injection, although any side effects should fade after several days. Some patients also notice lumpiness where Radiesse was injected, but this is rare, and quickly dissipates. Results will be visible immediately and are very natural-looking. These results may last up to a year or even longer, depending on specific patient factors such as metabolism. Once the results have faded, patients can return for a follow-up treatment.

Who is a good candidate?

If you’re interested in having Radiesse treatments in Miami, you could be a perfect candidate. Ideal candidates are those who are interested in improving signs of aging such as volume loss, lines, and wrinkles; triggering their own collagen production, and who want a non-surgical treatment that produces long-lasting results. Those who are pregnant, breastfeeding, have hypersensitivity or severe allergies, or are under the age of 18 are not good candidates for Radiesse.
