This synthetic calcium soft-tissue filler works to restore the skin’s foundation, providing a scaffold to correct furrows, early jowls, loss of fullness in cheek area, slacking jawline, and defects in the nose. It was recently approved for use on the hands as well, to restore plumpness and smooth the look of veins.
Lisa Topham has found that Radiesse works best in women 40 and under. Topham notes, “In my clinical experience, perimenopause depletes calcium, and this product is calcium based so it doesn’t last in women over 40.” Instead, Topham prefers to use this product on women under 40 and on men for best results.
The mineral (non-animal based) content of Radiesse, suspended in a gel, is both biocompatible and biodegradable, and does not require an allergy test.
FDA-approved in 2007, Radiesse is one of the longest lasting forms of skin rejuvenation, with results typically remaining for 12-18 months.
With more than two decades experience in injectable fillers, Lisa Topham’s advanced training and technique assures patients the most natural results in smoothing problem areas of the face and hands. Here, in this video, she discusses the difference in filler placement in men vs. women.
