Marionette Lines

Radiesse™ allows you to carefully augment these small lines with only local anesthesia - with immediate results.

Smile Lines

Up until now, filler treatment for this area of the face was short-lived. Now, the nasolabial folds can be successfully treated with Radiesse™ injected into the deep dermis, with much longer lasting results.

Why Radiesse™ is the better choice

Used to restore and reshape obvious signs of facial aging, Radiesse does more than other fillers that simply chase wrinkles. Its unique contouring ability allows physicians to treat large areas of the face in one procedure.
