My little sensation from the USA
Dr. Barbara Sturm-Waldman: “The treatment with Radiesse has become a fixed component of my therapy program and it is now impossible to imagine life without it. The techniques I developed with this product replace small facelifts. I am so enthusiastic and so are my patients. Radiesse has been the market leader in America for many years and has always been treated subordinately in Germany. I have often discussed the results with my American colleagues and I am glad that it is now available in Germany.”
Radiesse is a dermal filler, which, like hyaluronic acid is one of the resorbable fillers, and for certain applications is a convincing, cheaper alternative to hyaluronic acid. We have included the product in our portfolio and are highly satisfied with the results.
Radiesse consists of synthetic calcium hydroxyapatite microspheres in a carrier gel. Calcium hydroxyapatite is a natural component of human cell tissue and is found in teeth and bones.
Due to its high viscosity and elasticity, Radiesse is very well suited for volume corrections, e.g. for filling up the cheek area, reducing deep nasolabial folds and correcting puppet wrinkles (folds from the corners of the mouth to the chin). It can also be used to correct jaw contours, to correct the nose and to enlarge a chin that is too small. The filling effect is immediately visible. Additional collagen growth is stimulated around the injected particles in the time after the procedure. Using Dr. Sturm’s own technique, Radiesse also achieves sensational results in the treatment of the décolleté and back of the hand.
The product is 100% biocompatible and is broken down naturally by the body over a period of 1 to 2 years.
