" Radiesse stimulates collagen production and thickens the dermis of the skin that has been damaged and thinned by aging and sun exposure. Radiesse is an excellent choice for patients who have lipoatrophy from weight loss, illness or from genetic predisposition. Radiesse is a firmer product than HA fillers and gives more correction per syringe. It is an excellent option for aging hands. "

This was just what I needed with my 25 year high school reunion approaching. I definitely will not miss it this year! Thanks Dr. Lupo ~ Tina L.
Radiesse is a safe, next generation dermal filler that uniquely gives volume correction immediately, as well as delayed collagen stimulation for lasting results. It is best used in the lines from the nose to the mouth (nasolabial or smile lines) and from the mouth to the chin (melolabial or marionette lines). It should not be injected in lips, as lumping is common in that location. It can also be used for lipoatrophy and total face filling, as well as nose, chin, and cheek shaping.
Dr Lupo has been invited to be on an advisory board for this product, and has demonstrated its use at Bioform meetings.
