FAQ’s:WHAT IS RADIESSE®?
RADIESSE® is an opaque, white colored dermal filler made up of CaHA microspheres in a water based gel injected into the skin of the face to smooth away wrinkles such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds). RADIESSE® is nonanimal based and free from animal protein. Before you are injected, you do not have to be tested to see if you are allergic to RADIESSE®.
WHAT IS RADIESSE® USED FOR?
RADIESSE® is injected into your skin to smooth away wrinkles and folds, such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds).
HOW DOES IT WORK?
RADIESSE® is injected into the skin with a thin needle to plump the skin and add volume to smooth facial wrinkles and folds such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth. Your doctor will inject the product into your skin to make the wrinkles shallower and smoother. RADIESSE® will not correct the underlying causes of wrinkles and folds.
ARE THERE ANY REASONS WHY I SHOULD NOT RECEIVE RADIESSE®?
Your doctor will ask about your medical history to determine if you are a good candidate for injection of RADIESSE®. In order to avoid complications and unsatisfactory results, RADIESSE® should not be used if:
You have severe allergies marked by a history of severe reaction (anaphylaxis) or history or presence of severe allergies. Use may result in an allergic reaction.
You have had a severe reaction (hypersensitivity) to any of the components (CaHA, sterile water, carboxymethylcellulose, glycerin). Use may result in an allergic reaction.
You have a bleeding disorder.
WHAT ARE SOME WARNINGS TO CONSIDER?
It is important to share your medical information with your doctor. Together you can make an informed decision as to whether or not RADIESSE® is right for you. Because use could result in significant injury, RADIESSE® should not be used in the following cases:
Warning: One of the risks of using RADIESSE® is unintentional injection into a blood vessel. The chances of this happening are very small, but if it does happen, the complications can be serious and may be permanent. These complications, which have been reported for facial injections, can include vision abnormalities, blindness, stroke, temporary scabs, or permanent scarring of the skin. If you have changes in your vision, signs of a stroke (including sudden difficulty speaking, numbness or weakness in your face, arms or legs, difficulty walking, face drooping, severe headache, dizziness or confusion), white appearance of the skin or unusual pain during or shortly after treatment, you should notify your health care practitioner immediately.
RADIESSE® should not be used in any person with active skin inflammation or infection in or near the treatment area until the inflammation or infection has been controlled.
The safety and effectiveness of RADIESSE® for use in the lips has not been established. Use in the lips may result in unsatisfactory results and injury such as the formation of nodules (small lumps of dermal filler material).
Injection procedure reactions have been observed consisting mainly of short-term (i.e. < 7 days) bruising, redness and swelling.
