Dr. Goldenberg may also recommend Radiesse®, an FDA-approved dermal filler that consists of calcium-based microspheres suspended in a water-based gel that will restore facial volume when injected into the skin. Radiesse® has a collagen stimulating effect and may produce results that last up to one year duration. Over time, the microspheres degrade naturally into calcium and phosphate ions that are safely metabolized by the body. Dr. Goldenberg may use Radiesse® to augment the nasolabial folds, corners of the mouth, as well as cheek, chin and jawline contouring.
