Radiesse is a longer-lasting, semi-permanent filler that offers instant results, as well as improvement over time. Formulated with microscopic calcium hydroxyapatite particles that stimulate the skin to produce more collagen, Radiesse is injected deeper into the skin and intended to restore volume and provide lift rather than filling specific lines and creases. It is considered a tissue stimulator and has the ability to produce new collagen deep within the skin’s layers. In addition to the original Radiesse, Facial Plastic Surgeon Dr. Jason Bloom also offers Radiesse(+), which is formulated with lidocaine to minimize discomfort both during and after treatment. Radiesse is an ideal choice for patients who want to enhance the cheekbones, temples, jawline and jowls, and can be used to correct deep nasolabial (nose to mouth) creases in women as well as in men.
Beyond the face, Bloom Facial Plastics also uses Radiesse for hand rejuvenation. As the only FDA-approved filler approved for use in the tops of the hands, the long-lasting results of this semi-permanent filler help improve the bony appearance that often comes along with age by increasing the density of the skin. The skin-plumping effect is visible immediately and because Radiesse stimulates the skin’s natural collagen production in the months following injection, results continue to improve over time and can last for a year or more.
