Radiesse – Volumising Filler for Wrinkle Reduction

Why use Radiesse for Wrinkle Reduction?

When we age, or have been ill or dieting, we can lose volume from the face, develop folds and lines and hollow temples. Our collagen depletes and our faces become more gaunt and squarer, possibly looking sad even!

Radiesse can help re-balance this volume loss giving a gentle natural look *.

The treatment is performed in a clinic setting under proper medical supervision. A full assessment, medical, surgical, allergy psychological history and your suitability must be assessed first by Dr Brookes.

The woman in the picture above quite clearly does not yet need Radiesse but she illustrates what many would consider looking healthy with good skin and natural facial volume *.

* I had the Radiesse volumising treatment to my mid face and across my cheek bone area. The results were instant! It was as though I’d finally caught up on the last five years sleep deprivation of parenthood!

What is Radiesse?

Calcium hydroxylapatite microsphere (CaHA 30%) in an elastic gel matrix of 70%.

It gives instant volume when placed deeply by injection and continues to stimulate your own collagen formation to provide volumisation for approximately 12 months *.

The product has been around for several years and has recently been acquired by Merz, a well-known German pharmaceutical company, and is gaining more profile in the UK. It is an alternative to Sculptra or deep volume filling using dermal fillers.

Dr Brookes can advise which volume filling method is best suited to you, you needs, skin tone and face shape.

How can Radiesse be used?

  • Wrinkle Reduction *
  • Create cheekbone *
  • Create mid-face left *
  • Non-surgical face lift
  • Restores natural looking volume in the mid-face i.e. over the cheek area *.
