Radiesse Dermal Fillers Reach 1M Syringe Milestone

Posted by Cosmetic Surgery Review on January 20, 2009

radiesse-logoAs demand for injectable fillers continues to rise, more consumers are opting for injetables outside of popular treatment such as Botox and Juvederm.

Radiesse is now commonly used in the ‘liquid facelift’ procedure to get rid of fine lines and wrinkles and create a more youthful appearance.

The dermal filler recently reached a distribution milestone of 1,000,000 syringes; BioForm Medical, Inc., recently reported that Radiesse has shipped over one million syringes worldwide since 2002, making it one of the leading injectables on the market.

Radiesse is especially popular in Europe, serving as a ‘filler of choice’ for men and women interested in enhancing their appearance and restoring their youthful looks.   In the United States, Radiesse is commonly used for facial reconstruction and as part of facelift surgery; the filler offers long-term results and higher patient satisfaction than Restylane and Juvederm, according to BioForm Medical, Inc.  The filler is made with calcium-based microspheres that are suspended in a water-based gel; this soft gel quickly adapts to the facial contours, leaving the surface looking smooth and supple. BioForm Medical also believes that Radiesse is the only dermal filler on the market with such a wide distribution.

The injectable works by stimulating th production of collagen and filling out facial lines.  This results in a smoother, natural-looking appearance than some synthetic fillers, and one treatmetn can offer instant results.

Most patients see continued results a few weeks after the treatment as the body begins to produce collagen in and around the injection site at a faster rate.  Radiesse can be used to correct smile lines, marionette lines, fill out hollowed cheeks, improve the appearance of the hands, correct vocal fold problems, and also reshape and contour the jaw line.

Anti-aging doctors and specialists who administer Radiesse injections create customized treatment programs for individuals who want to achieve facelift-like results.  Learn more about Radiesse here.
