Question: Is Radiesse a good choice for lip augmentation?
Answer: Radiesse is a volumizing filler and it is very good for increasing volume and contours. Radiesse has some immediate filling effects but it also has long-lasting effects by stimulating your dermis to produce its own collagen. The feel is very natural since it stimulates some natural collagen. Radiesse has calcium microspheres which help in volumizing. Because it’s a volumizer, I use it more for the cheek bones, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, filling up the hollows in the cheeks, to elevate the oral commissure slightly and filling out the jaw line. Some people also use this in the nose and in the backs of the hands. I think these are good areas to use Radiesse.
