• a 100% improvement score (according to the Global Aesthetic Improvement Scale)
• a 99% patient satisfaction score
• no palpable nodules
The unique durability of BioForm implants is due to their content and structure. CaHA, a highly dense and very low solubility bioceramic material, is the primary component. Particles of this calcium/phosphate compound provide a strong, long-lasting foundation that allows local cellular infiltration. The resulting structure of CaHA and natural tissue forms a cohesive implant that remains in place for many months to years.
Radiesse has no animal derived constituents, so there is no risk of an allergic reaction.
Side effects of the treatment can be a temporary swelling or local irritation of the skin, shortly after application of the product. Cooling (by means of an ice pack) can reduce these effects. Possible skin irritation will disappear within the day, without any lasting residual effects. You can resume your normal activities within one or two days.
After filling out a health-related questionnaire and having your picture taken, the skin will be disinfected, and Radiesse will be injected under the skin with a very thin needle. For very sensitive areas like the upper lip a local anaesthetic (lidocaïne) can be applied, but in most cases this will not even be necessary. The only thing you’ll feel is a slight sting when the needle enters the skin.
It’s important to refrain from using aspirin or blood thinners prior to the treatment, since that will slightly increase the chance of bleeding. Directly after treatment you should avoid pressure to the treated areas, strong mimic muscle movement and alcohol.
It is also advisable to avoid too much UV light (both sun and artificial UV lighting).
Your initial consultation is completely free and without obligation. A follow-up appointment without treatment is € 40.
