Radiesse

  Radiesse, formerly known as Radiance, is a non-toxic injectable gel
  used to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It can also
  be used to fill some scars. Radiesse offers long-lasting benefits and
  offers an 80 percent improvement in the appearance of wrinkles and
  skin folds immediately after treatment. It is typically used in
  patients between the ages of 35 and 60.

How it works

  RADIESSE® Volumizing Filler immediately provides the volume and
  lift needed to diminish the signs of aging because of the
  calcium-based microspheres and gel that comprise the product.

  Dr. Casal will determine the correct amount of Radiesse gel based on
  your skin condition and the size of the area to be treated. One or
  more injection points will be used for each area location. Complete
  results are usually evident within one week. The results last 1 year
  or more and treatment must be repeated to maintain results.

Treatment and recovery

  The Radiesse procedure is performed in our office under topical
  anesthesia. The procedure takes approximately 15 minutes and requires
  no downtime. You may experience minimal swelling, which usually goes
  away in about two days. You may also experience some discomfort and
  bruising. You may return to your normal daily activities immediately
  following the procedure, but you are advised to stay out of the sun.
