Radiesse® is used by Dr. Rian Maercks to fill almost any wrinkle. Made of a substance called calcium hydroxylapatite, Radiesse is a biocompatible dermal filler that is FDA-approved and is often used for the treatment of wrinkles and folds that are severe to moderate.
What happens during a Radiesse treatment?
During the administration of the injections, Dr. Maercks will use a fine needle to inject Radiesse into the target area. Radiesse includes lidocaine to numb the area during treatment to keep you comfortable. After the injection, he may massage the area in order to obtain a smoother result. Radiesse acts immediately as a building block for the body to create collagen. Treatments typically take approximately 15 minutes.
