A big difference between Radiesse dermal filler and other fillers is that it lasts for years versus months. The exceptional design of this product enables your body's own tissue to develop and increase volume. Radiesse can be used to add volume to your lips and cheeks, and can be especially helpful in filling in deep skin folds and wrinkles.
Your cosmetic dermatologist will place a topical or local anesthetic to reduce the pain from the injections, particularly if you are having lip augmentation, because the lip area is more responsive. Next a small needle is injected underneath the skin in order to insert the Radiesse.
