Radiesse Dermal Fillers Reach 1M Syringe Milestone

radiesse-logoAs demand for injectable fillers continues to rise, more consumers are opting for injetables outside of popular treatment such as Botox and Juvederm.

Radiesse is now commonly used in the 'liquid facelift' procedure to get rid of fine lines and wrinkles and create a more youthful appearance.

The dermal filler recently reached a distribution milestone of 1,000,000 syringes; BioForm Medical, Inc., recently reported that Radiesse has shipped over one million syringes worldwide since 2002, making it one of the leading injectables on the market.

Radiesse is especially popular in Europe, serving as a 'filler of choice' for men and women interested in enhancing their appearance and restoring their youthful looks.   In the United States, Radiesse is commonly used for facial reconstruction and as part of facelift surgery; the filler offers long-term results and higher patient satisfaction than Restylane and Juvederm, according to BioForm Medical, Inc.  The filler is made with calcium-based microspheres that are suspended in a water-based gel; this soft gel quickly adapts to the facial contours, leaving the surface looking smooth and supple. BioForm Medical also believes that Radiesse is the only dermal filler on the market with such a wide distribution.

The injectable works by stimulating th production of collagen and filling out facial lines.  This results in a smoother, natural-looking appearance than some synthetic fillers, and one treatmetn can offer instant results.

Most patients see continued results a few weeks after the treatment as the body begins to produce collagen in and around the injection site at a faster rate.  Radiesse can be used to correct smile lines, marionette lines, fill out hollowed cheeks, improve the appearance of the hands, correct vocal fold problems, and also reshape and contour the jaw line.

Anti-aging doctors and specialists who administer Radiesse injections create customized treatment programs for individuals who want to achieve facelift-like results.  Learn more about Radiesse here.

  • Khloe Kardashian made headlines recently after the paparazzi caught her with the infamous “trout pout” – the result of too many injectable fillers in the lips. Kim Kardashian’s younger sister appeared to have some very swollen and lumpy lips after leaving a Beverly Hills salon last week and many are suspecting that that star had cosmetic surgery. Celebrity plastic surgery doctor Dr. Anthony Youn did not treat Khloe Kardashian but believes that the star did have some type of injectable filler. He tells RadarOnline.com, “Khloe has a trout pout! The excessively plump appearance of her lips could be due to injections of a filler like Juvederm. Her upper lip is larger than her lower lip, causing her mouth to resemble a trout’s. Most injectable fillers last about 6 months in the lips, so given enough time we may see her lips shrink to a smaller and more typical size.” Another plastic surgery doctor, Dr. Michael Fiorellio who is based in New York City, made a similar conclusion. He suspects that Khloe had some type of filler treatment because, “Her lips look swollen and bruised. The product looks lumpy as well”. Dr. Fiorellio is suggesting that this Kardashian sister had either Juvederm or Restylane injections to make her lips appear larger and fuller. Injectable fillers are among the most popular types of non-invasive cosmetic enhancements around the country, and are an attractive option for women who want to add volume to their lips, fill out hollows in their cheeks, and diminish the appearance of wrinkles and lines. They’re also more affordable than having surgery and can be a convenient option for those who don’t want to deal with the long downtime and recovery process associate with a surgical procedure like lip implants or a facelift.

  • While thousands of women flock to the plastic surgeon’s office or medical spa for their Botox fix every month, statistics show that men are also adopting the Botox habit. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons reports that the number of men seeking cosmetic procedures continues to rise steadily year after year. Whether it’s to attract a mate, get through a mid-life crisis, or just feel more confident when applying for a job, men are relying on quick-fix procedures like Botox, facial fillers, and other minimally-invasive treatments to improve their looks. Experts have dubbed the recent increase in demand for Botox by men as “Brotox”, and it’s being embraced readily by more men across all age groups.

  • If you’ve been thinking about plastic or cosmetic surgery to get rid of wrinkles and lines, you may be able to defy aging without having to go under the knife.
