Q: What are RADIESSE® and RADIESSE® (+)?

A: RADIESSE® and RADIESSE® (+) are FDA-approved dermal fillers that effectively address moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds (the lines from your nose to your mouth corners). RADIESSE® is also specifically designed to restore volume loss in the back of your hands.

Q: What are the potential risks?

A: Although rare, unintentional injection into a blood vessel can occur and may lead to serious complications. These complications include vision abnormalities, blindness, stroke, scabs, or permanent scarring. If you experience any vision changes, signs of a stroke, a white appearance of the skin, or unusual pain during or after treatment, inform your healthcare provider immediately. Infections are also a potential risk associated with any skin injection.

Q: Are RADIESSE® and RADIESSE® (+) safe for use in all areas?

Q: How do I ensure optimal safety and results?
