The drug for volume correction Radiess
is an a unique dermal filler that wasIt is based on calcium hydroxyapatite. This drug helps to achieve the effect of lifting the face without surgery and provides a long-term result. Radiesses serve as a filler, and also stimulates the production of collagen by the patient's body and is used for contour plasty.
Radiation differs from hyaluronic fillers in the duration of the effect of the procedure. The result from the use of the drug persists for many more than 1 year.
Implant Radiesse Injection is used forplastic and reconstructive cosmetology, which includes deep augmentation of the soft tissues of the face of the dermal and subdermal layer. This drug is well studied by cosmetologists, which proved its absolute safety in terms of the occurrence of allergic reactions. Radiessus does not migrate and after a certain period of time, it itself is excreted from the body naturally.

What is Radiess? Information about the preparation

Radiesse is a deep dermal and subdermalImplant, which completely decomposes at the biological level. The drug is sterilized by steam, it is pyrogen-free, semi-solid, cohesive and does not contain latex. Radiesse is not intended for administration to the surface layers of the skin.
This dermal filler is approved by the FDA committee, and also has a safety certificate of the European standard.
Application of the filler is recommended forvolumetric correction of the face, elimination of pronounced folds and wrinkles, including problem areas near the nose and lips. The main component of Radiess is synthetic hydroxyapatite of calcium, which belongs to biological material, and has been used for more than 20 years in such branches of medicine as neurosurgery, orthopedics, dentistry, otolaryngology and ophthalmology.

Hydroxyapatite of calcium is the maina component of the bones and teeth. A semi-solid implant structure can be achieved by creating a suspension of hydroxyapatite calcium based on a gel that consists of sterile water for injection and glycerin.
The gel structure can be obtained by adding a small amount of sodium carboxymethyl cellulose (USP).
The gel dissolves directly already insideorganism, after which it is replaced by growing tissue fibers. Hydroxyapatite calcium, on the contrary, remains at the injection site by injection. As a result, the effect of using Radiesse persists for a long time.
Filler Radiesse for injection application refers to the classification of medical equipment. Implant Radiess for injection 1.5 cm3, 0.8 cm3, and 0.3 cm3 have particle sizes of 25-45 microns.

● Radiesse 0.3 ml is designed for minimal correction of small areas of the skin.
Radius 0.8 ml - is used to correct moderately expressed wrinkles and skin folds.
● Radiesse 1.5 ml - is designed to correct strong wrinkles and facial creases, as well as to give volume to the face and achieve a lifting effect.

Filler Radiesse is used in the following areas:

- eyebrows;
- area of ​​temples;
- the cheekbone part;
- lobes of ears;
- nasolabial folds;
- cheeks;
- Contour of the lower jaw;
- "puppet" wrinkles;
- the back of the nose;
- the chin crease and the chin itself;
- Hands.

Contraindications to the use of this filler are acute or chronic inflammatory skin diseases at the injection site;
Do not use Radiesse in patients with hypersensitivity to one of the components of the drug;
It is forbidden to use the drug for patients who are predisposed to scarring and inflammatory skin reactions;
Radiation can not be implanted in the epidermis of the skin. Implantation of the drug in the epidermal layer can lead to the development of complications (the formation of fistulas, infection, the formation of nodes and seals);
Filler is not used to correct glabellarfolds, because the appearance of glabellar infection significantly increases the risk of necrosis in the localization of the inflammatory process. Complications that have occurred as a result of the introduction of other injections suggest that intensive interventions in the surface vessels of the glabellar region can trigger retrograde movement in the artery of the retina, which can cause blockage of the vessels;
Injection is contraindicated in patients who have foreign bodies at the injection site, for example, liquid silicone, biopolymer gel or other materials;
Do not use the filler on skin areas with affected tissues or in areas with a well-developed vascular network;
Do not use the filler to patients with systemic disorders, as this can lead to long healing of wounds or tissue damage over the implant.

The drug should not be injected directly into the blood vessels, as this can cause platelet aggregation, blockage of vessels, embolism, infarction or hemolysis.
Do not put Radiess in the organs or other structures of the body, as they can be damaged by the space that is formed when the implant is inserted.
Do not administer the drug to patients who take aspirin, or those who have violations of the healing process of the skin.
The drug can not be implanted in damagedskin patches or infected tissues. Since this can lead to the development of an infectious process, which can provoke a loss of the skin area over the implant. Emerging hematomas may require surgical drainage.
If the patient has an increasedsensitivity to one of the components of the drug or allergic reactions, then after the administration of Radiess, a strong inflammatory process may develop, which will require the extraction of the implant. This is very dangerous, since it is very difficult to remove an implant, and it has a long-time property to dissolve.
Some implants after injectioncaused the hardening of tissues at the injection site, the migration of particles to other parts of the body, provoked the development of allergic reactions and autoimmune diseases. After carrying out diagnostic tests on animals and studying the corresponding literature, physicians did not reveal the occurrence of such reactions to the administration of Radiesse.
Like any other filler, this implant cancause the development of side effects in the form of inflammation, infection, redness, fistula formation (fistula), bruising, discoloration of the skin, hardening, etc.
As pregnant women and nursing mothers carry this filler, no studies have been conducted.
The safety of Radiess implant insertion into the mucous membrane of the lips has not been established.

In order to easily insert the implant through the skin, you must choose soft tissue. When the drug is injected into the skin, altered by scars or damaged areas, significant complications can arise.
At the injection site, the drug can develop an infectious process that requires treatment. If the treatment does not work, then the implant may need to be removed.
At the injection site, pain may occur, itching, swelling, and discoloration of the skin. These phenomena usually pass on their own within 1-2 days after the injection.
Nodules that can be treated or removed can appear in the areas of insertion of the implant.
Implant may be introduced unevenly, whichwill require surgical correction. Do not inject too much of the implant, as this can lead to rupture of the area of ​​the skin where the injection was performed. The drug, if the amount entered was not sufficient, if necessary, you can add, but it is very difficult to remove from the skin.
Procedure for injectingRadiesses, like other injections, can provoke the development of complications, infection and bleeding. During implant insertion, the patient may experience discomfort. To prevent pain, it is recommended to apply anesthetics to the skin. To avoid the development of complications, you must strictly adhere to the above recommendations.

What is the procedure for the introduction of Radiesse?

Before the procedure, the doctor must find outwhether the patient has any contraindications to the injection. Simultaneously, the need for anesthesia also becomes apparent. Injection can be carried out additionally, but only after a general assessment of the patient's condition for the previous introduction. It is best to wait a week, and then inject the medication again, if necessary.

The patient should be told about skin care, after the correction of the drug. Usually these are the recommendations below:
- to the zones of drug administration it is necessary to apply cold or ice for the next 24 hours, for a while
- After implant placement, you can not stay in the open sun, visit a solarium, sauna and perform intensive cosmetic procedures.
- if a nodule is found at the implant site, the patient should massage the area of ​​the skin with fingers.
- warn the patient that afterprocedures can puffiness and numbness of the skin. This is normal, and usually passes 7-10 days after the injection. The feeling of numbness occurs during the next 4-6 weeks. The oral cavity should be rinsed with saline for a week after the implant, up to 6 times a day.

Periodically negative reviews appear aboutdrug associated with the development of complications. Specialists conducting procedures with him say that this depends on the incorrect technique of drug administration. Nevertheless, in the environment of cosmetologists, there is also information that in some patients the skin in the projection of places where Radiess was introduced acquires pathological reactivity at the time when the filler itself should already resolve - 2-3 years after the injection. And this complicates further manipulations, such as mesotherapy. biorevitalization. contour plastic with other drugs and other interventions, and in some cases can make them impossible.

In addition, Radiess position as a drug that gives the so-called "V" effect,that is, the effect of lifting the tissues with age-related changes. So why with this purpose (in the event that you are categorically opposed to facelifting operation) not to make a more effective and modern procedure - fractional laser rejuvenation?
Application of Radiesse taking into account the cost of the procedureis justified for deep modeling, when it is necessary to give a volume to the chin, cheekbones, and also to change the shape of the nose, again, in this case, you can use more "long-playing" drugs - Sculptor or Elance. Alternatively, the use of viscous hyaluronic fillers intended for deep modeling, as a rule, they, as a rule, last longer in tissues - Fillers Replery №4 and №5 is guaranteed to be kept in tissues for 1.5 years, and in some cases after this period the preparation still remains in the tissues for a while, remaining safe and in no way changing the reactivity of surrounding tissues.

The price for the procedure for introducing this filler depends on the selected syringe volume and is at least 16,000-20,000 rubles.

Radiesse: a filler based on calcium hydroxyapatite. 2 comments

I want to talk about my anguish with this drug.I made cheekbones and two days later I was like a stinging wasp. I made my cosmetician suprastin, dripped hormones, but the swelling was increasing and I got into the hospital. The gel was removed surgically. Thanks Mertz.

I poured a 1.5 ml radius into the nosogobes and cheekbones. The edema was small and went through 3 hours later. Sinyachkov was not at all. A month has passed, the contours of the face are gradually tightened.
