Cheek Augmentation (Radiesse)

What is Radiesse FN™ for Non-Surgical Cheek Augmentation?
Radiesse FN™ is a new dermal filler that is used to fill facial folds and lines as well as treat volume loss in the skin. The effects of Radiesse FN™ are immediate and long-lasting. You do not have to get a skin test in order to use Radiesse FN™ because it is made of calcium hydroxylapatite, a mineral component found in our teeth and bones, and does not provoke any allergic reactions. Radiesse FN™ is a safe and effective alternative to bovine and solid implant materials, which are known to cause side effects in some patients.
Radiesse FN™ treatment consists of injecting the gel just under the skin through a tiny needle in order to reduce fine lines and wrinkles caused by aging and sun exposure. For most patients, results from Radiesse FN™ treatment last for one to two years, although some patients’ treatment results may last three years or longer.

Is Radiesse FN™ an inpatient procedure?
The guidelines for determining whether you are a good candidate for Laser Lipolysis are similar to those for traditional liposuction. You should be no more than 30 pounds overweight and be in good health. The desired treatment areas should be tested for sufficient skin elasticity. Laser Lipolysis is ideal for patients near normal weight who have areas of concern on their bodies that are resistant to diet and exercise.
Is Radiesse FN™ for Non-Surgical Cheek Augmentation safe?
Yes, Radiesse FN™ has been approved by the FDA as a safe and effective treatment option to replenish volume in the cheek area to promote a younger-looking profile.
Is Radiesse FN™ for Non-Surgical Cheek Augmentation painful?
For the majority of patients, Radiesse FN™ treatments are not painful. However, local or topical anesthetics may be used to minimize discomfort, depending on the area being treated. Soreness at the treatment site and temporary headaches are common side effects of Radiesse FN™ treatment.
Where can Radiesse FN™ rejuvenate the skin?
Radiesse FN™ can rejuvenate the facial profile from:
- Smile lines, also referred to as nasolabial folds, which are wrinkles that extend from the corners of the nose down to the corners of the mouth
- Oral commissure, or frown lines in the corners of the mouth
- Marionette lines that extend downwards from the edges of the mouth
- Horizontal wrinkles found in the chin region
- Pre-jowl folds where sagging can occur due to inadequate facial volume
Will there be scarring?
