Over time, different cosmetic procedures have been invented to address the problem of wrinkles. One such procedure is Radiesse®. Offered by the specialists at Aesthetic Surgery & Dermatology of Cherry Creek, this cosmetic procedure works by plumping the skin to conceal wrinkles and facial contours. Besides filling up the contours, Radiesse® also stimulates collagen production. This combination of filler and collagen stimulation makes Radiesse® an ideal cosmetic procedure for individuals seeking to conceal facial wrinkles for a more youthful look.
How Does It Work?
Radiesse® is an injectable dermal filler that is designed to plump up the skin and smooth out facial wrinkles. It can also be performed on hands to add volume to the skin and hide visible veins and tendons. Ideal candidates for Radiesse® are usually mature adults. The procedure is also ideal for individuals who have lost fat in the facial area.
As you age, the body’s natural collagen breaks down. This results in folds, wrinkles, and loosening of the skin. Radiesse® replaces the body’s lost collagen with calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) micro-spheres that are suspended in a gel. When injected into the skin, these micro-spheres act as a scaffold to provide a structure that lifts the skin while eliminating wrinkles. The micro-spheres also stimulate the body to release collagen, which ensures that the results last.
Radiesse® can be used to treat the following areas:
• Marionette lines
• Nasolabial folds
Who is Eligible for Radiesse® Injections?
Most adults are eligible for this cosmetic procedure. However, according to the manufacturer, the treatment is not recommended for certain individuals, such as those who are allergic to any of the product’s ingredients. Radiesse® is also not recommended for people with a history of anaphylaxis (severe allergic reactions).

• You are taking blood thinners or medications that can interfere with blood clotting
• You have a history of forming large, raised scars
• You have recently had other skin treatment procedures
