Radiesse Advanced Dermal Filler
Numerous medical studies have shown that Radiesse is a safe, longer lasting treatment to fill and correct smile lines, nasolabial folds and wrinkles around the nose and mouth. With an experienced physician, Radiesse can also be an effective treatment option for sunken areas below the eyes (tear trough), and to augment cheeks, as well as fill in the areas on the sides of the chin (pre-jowl sulcus). Some physicians who are trained in advanced injection techniques use Radiesse to help lift sagging areas of the face, as well. At Rejuvena, Dr. Hardt injects the newer Radiesse Plus, which is pre-mixed with lidocaine for a more comfortable experience.
Radiesse is made of calcium-based microspheres suspended in a natural gel. It is unique in that it works with your body, below the skin's surface, to stimulate the production of collagen and encourage tissue regeneration. Essentially, Radiesse forms a "scaffold", stimulating collagen production and encouraging tissue growth in and around the treatment area. It does more than just temporarily fill facial lines and wrinkles - it helps your skin rebuild its own foundation. Radiesse is similar to Sculptra in this respect; however, Sculptra does not give an immediate result as Radiesse does. The diagrams below help to explain how this occurs.
Radiesse gives you both immediate and extended results, restoring a healthy natural look for up to a year or more. The area treated will be smoother after a period of several months due to the collagen regeneration.
Radiesse has been used by physicians in cosmetic medical procedures for over a decade to treat nearly a million individuals. Radiesse has also been FDA-approved in the U.S. for decades for therapeutic uses in the body, such as vocal cord dysfunction and craniofacial augmentation. Radiesse was approved by the FDA in 2006 to treat patients cosmetically. Depending upon the injection technique and your facial attributes, Radiesse will typically last between up to a year or more.
For many of us, despite how well we maintain our appearance, our hands give away our real age. Now there is a treatment that can truly turn back time, Radiesse for the hands. You can have hands that look 20 years younger in a single treatment! FDA-approved in 2014, Radiesse is injected in the hands to make them smoother and fuller to the touch and site. Just look how much Radiesse can change the appearance of hands:

Hand treatments are great for that upcoming class reunion, wedding, anniversary or other special event. Results typically last between 6 - 12 months with a single treatment session.
