Radiesse is a unique wrinkle filler that is a calcium based microsphere and gel-based filler. It has a heavier and bigger molecule than the hyaluronic gel fillers. Because of this, placing this product in a thicker area of the face, like the area from your nose to your mouth, is perfect. Faces are like mattresses; as they get older, the coils get softer and the support system starts to break. Radiesse stimulates your natural collagen, making it produce more.
Depending on where you have the product injected, it could last up to one year. Side effects may include bruising, redness or swelling. The in-office procedure takes about 30 minutes, and the results are immediate. At Colorado Dermatology Institute, Dr. Anderson is the only physician who performs this treatment. The cost is $599 for a 1.5cc syringe and $399 for a .8cc syringe. Contact us for a visit to see if Radiesse is right for you!
