EXPERT Q&A

Q: Where does Radiesse belong?

What our experts say:

It’s FDA approved and indicated for the treatment of nasolabial folds only. Off label, I have had great success treating patients who have lost a lot volume in their hands. I also use it a lot when treating male patients who have deeper nasolabial folds and need that thicker molecule to plump things up.

Radiesse is a calcium hydroxyapatite filler that both lifts and volumizes soft tissue, while simultaneously stimulating collagenesis (aka creation of new collagen) in its injected field. This completely unique dermal filler lasts a minimum of 1 year, and has lasted as long as 28 months in our practice. When patients get on a regular schedule with Radiesse, they tend to get long-lasting, semi-permanent rejuvenative effects due to the stimulation of collagen production by your own body. Radiesse also has the greatest degree of tissue lift amongst the commercially available fillers. We use this filler routinely in the brow, midface, nasolabial folds, jawline, and lateral cheeks. Radiesse was also recently FDA approved for rejuvenation of the hand. It is the only filler that is FDA approved for this use. As such, we use Radiesse routinely in the listed facial parts above, and the hands. Radiesse should not be used in the lips or eyelids. In those areas, Restylane and Juvederm are clearly superior.
