Radiesse is an excellent filler for lifting the face and adding structure to the jawline and chin. A new FDA indication is also hand rejuvenation. When injected into the back of the hands, Radiesse helps smooth and thicken the skin which becomes wrinkled, thin and transparent with age. Additionally the veins decrease in size.
Radiesse is considered a semi permanent filler for deeper skin wrinkles and creases as it last longer in many patients when compared to most of the HA products. It is not intended for high movement areas such as the lips. It also can be used to contour the jawline or correct facial asymmetry or facial dips. Radiesse injections may last one to three years. When used for contouring, injections last up to one year or longer.
