Radiesse® consists of smooth calcium hydroxyapatite (CaHA) microspheres that are suspended in a water-based gel to stimulate the body’s collagen production. Since Radiesse® must be injected carefully to prevent clumping or abnormal deposits, Dr. Haque personally performs the injection to minimize complications and to ensure your results will be long-lasting. For most of our patients, Radiesse® yields significant cosmetic improvements that last 1 year or more. In some instances, Radiesse® can also be used on other areas of the body.
A topical numbing cream or nerve blocks are performed prior to injection to ensure your safety and minimize any discomfort from the injection. Any minor swelling or bruising that results from the injection resolves quickly and patients can return to their normal activities the same day.
