Radiesse® Volumizing Filler
Serving clients near Mansfield, Arlington, Fort Worth & Dallas, Texas
Radiesse® Volumizing Filler is a different form of dermal filler as compared with Juvederm®, Voluma®, Perlane®, or Restylane®. Unlike other dermal fillers that are composed of hyaluronic acid, Radiesse® is composed of calcium-based microspheres and gel carrier. Because of this distinguishing feature, Radiesse® has been known to stimulate your own natural collagen by using the calcium microspheres as scaffolding for new collagen support. This process of natural collagen growth may continue for up to 12 months.
Radiesse® is used to treat the nasolabial folds, marionette lines, perioral lip lines, and oral commisure lines. Radiesse is also used to treat the midface with injections along the cheek bones. Unfortunately, at this time, Radiesse is not approved or indicated to restore volume to the lips.
“Although well qualified, I choose not to use mid level nurse practitioners or physician assistants to perform your Radiesse injections. This makes a difference and because of this individualized, surgeon-level attention, I minimize irreversible complications and provide you with my best results. In addition, I use micro blunt tipped cannulas thereby minimizing bruising and discomfort. – Dr. Michael Thornton”
