Radiesse® – Houston, Texas
Radiesse® can minimize the lines and creases on your face while restoring the appearance of vitality. It can plump up or define the edges of your lips. It can fill depressed areas and blemishes, such as acne scars, in your face. Radiesse® can also fill in your nasolabial fold (the line between your nose and the corners of your mouth), reducing its depth. Radiesse® lasts longer than most wrinkle fillers: up to one year.
What Is Radiesse® – Houston
A synthetic formulation, Radiesse® contains calcium hydroxiapatite (CaHA), which is a component of teeth and bones. As an injectable, it is soft and pliable. Radiesse® has a thick consistency, best used for deep nasolabial folds. It is also well suited for rebuilding hollow areas of your face (e.g., sunken cheeks). Because Radiesse® is non-allergic, you do not need to take a skin test.

How Radiesse® Works
Dr. Adam or a Nurse under his supervision injects Radiesse® in the spa during your appointment. You can have a preliminary injection of numbing medicine (such as lidocaine), if you wish. After your treatment, Radiesse® assumes the softness of the surrounding tissue. Most patients can return to normal activities the next day.
