Question : Can Radiesse / calcium hydroxylapatite be used for lip augmentation? Does it last longer than other fillers?
Answer : Radiesse, or calcium hydroxylapatite, lasts a long time. For the lips, I tend to favor hyaluronic acid fillers. I find this to have nice, soft texture and a long lasting result. However, they can also be changed so that in the future if a patient’s aesthetic desire for the lips change, it’s very easy to increase or decrease the amount of hyaluronic acid filler if you’re using a non-permanent solution.
