Radiesse® Beverly Hills
Radiesse® is a dermal filler that has calcium-based microspheres suspended in a water based gel. This is considered a true volumizing filler as it has been shown to stimulate your own natural collagen when injected into the skin. Because of this, Radiesse® is an excellent option to soften those deeper facial lines or replacing volume in a volume deficient area. Additionally, Radiesse® is also FDA approved for hand rejuvenation.
Dr. Attenello is considered an expert in the field of non-surgical fillers and injectables and has published articles and book chapters in these specific areas. She strives to provide superior results that still appear very natural and balanced.
Q: How long does Radiesse® last?
Radiesse® has been shown to last about 9-12 months, although some individuals see results even after a year.
Q: How does Radiesse® differ from the other fillers?
Radiesse® is an excellent option for those with deeper lines or other areas that may need more volume or ‘lift’ than what may be achieved with other fillers. Because of its ability to stimulate your own collagen production, some patients feel that Radiesse® lasts a little longer compared to the hyaluronic acid fillers.
Q: Does Radiesse® hurt?
We always mix our Radiesse® with a lidocaine numbing agent to increase patient comfort. Most patients tolerate this filler very well with a combination of numbing cream, lidocaine, and ice.
