Radiesse ® in Minneapolis-St. Paul
What is Radiesse ®?
Signs of facial aging begin in the thirties. The lines from the nose to the mouth (nasolabial folds), mouth to chin (marionette lines), in addition to lines around the mouth become more prominent with age, even in non-smokers. These areas can be treated with Radiesse® to plump up what time has taken away. The goal is to minimize shadows on the face and restore natural contours, not overdo things. Radiesse® is a dermal filler made up of microspheres of Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHA). This filler adds volume while simultaneously stimulating the production of collagen. Over time, the body absorbs the gel, leaving behind the body’s own natural collagen. Radiesse can be used to treat smile lines, marionette lines, chin wrinkles, pre-jowl folds, and the corners of the mouth. Dr. Rocheford does charge $100 for consultations, and that fee is deducted from the price of your in-office procedure.
