Formerly known as Radience, Radiesse® is a synthetic injectable filler that reduces wrinkles, creases and scars by augmenting the body's natural collagen supply. Composed of microspheres in a biocompatible gel, Radiesse is made from the same minerals found in our bones, so it carries little risk of allergic reaction (unlike collagen) - just one of its advantages over alternative treatments. Radiesse can be used on many areas of the body; the most commonly treated are nasolabial folds, peri-oral lines, depressed scars and oral commissures.
Treatments typically take 15 minutes and require only local anesthetic. Results are visible immediately after the injection and can last for months or years, although the procedure can be repeated as often as you wish.
Dr. Guanche is one of few doctors using Radiesse for non-surgical cheek augmentation. This provides higher, fuller cheeks and restores volume to the face in all the right places. Dr. Guanche has been featured on "Ten Years Younger," LA Times, and KTLA News doing this advanced injectable procedure.
