We only offer FDA approved procedures to guarantee your safety while helping you achieve your natural, fresh faced appearance.
What is Radiesse Chicago?
Radiesse is an FDA approved injectable, volumizing filler. Radiesse is composed of calcium hyroxylapatite microspheres and smooth carboxymethylcellulose gel that work to smooth wrinkles and stimulate the production of the skin’s collagen. Collagen is important to maintain to provide the structural support in the skin to prevent crease lines and wrinkles. Once injected the effects of Radiesse Chicago start to immediately work to provide a youthful appearance. The treatment can be done as a lunch hour treatment and it has little to no downtime. Results are natural and last up to one year. Results vary in each patient.* The most common short term side effects include bruising, redness, swelling, pain, tenderness, and itching.
Which areas can Radiesse treat in Chicago?
Radiesse works to volumize the lower facial areas and improve the signs of aging in the hands.
Radiesse volumizes smile lines, marionette lines, pre-jowl folds, corners of the mouth, and chin wrinkles. Smile lines or nasolabial folds, result from the loss of collagen, the skin loses its elasticity as we age or as we smile. Marionette lines are the lines that run straight downwards on the corners of the mouth that give you an unhappy or unpleasant look. Pre-jowl folds are areas of skin along the jawline that have lost volume and have caused the skin to sag to create the folds. Creases in the corner of the mouth can make you look tired, angry, and upset even when you are in a good mood. Chin wrinkles are the lines across your chin that can take the gleam away from your smile by making you look older.*
*Individual results will vary.
Radiesse is the first and only FDA approved filler to safely and effectively enhance the appearance in the hands. Just like age causes a toll to your facial lines, your hands similarly age. Radiesse helps restore volume, minimizes the visibility of veins and tendons, and it provides smoothness to the hands that won’t give away your age. Throughout time your hands begin to lose their volume whether it be through manual labor or just age. The fat loss in the hands create the visibility of veins and tendons which give a tissue paper like appearance to the hands. The exaggerated thinness make your hands look boney and older than you really are.*
*Individual results will vary.
Are there any side effects?
Radiesse is considered non-toxic and hypoallergenic, making side effects and risk fairly rare. However, common side effects may occur at the injection site post-treatment. Such side effects are generally mild in nature and should diminish naturally. These side effects may include:
