Radiesse and Nasolabial Folds

For the nasal crease between the nose and mouth, how long would you say radiesse would last? And does it require a touch up a few weeks after the initial injection?

Radiesse usually lasts for about ten months to a year in the nasolabial folds. It’s not appropriate for all folds, however, only deeper ones. Because of its large particle size, it’s not the best idea for finer lines. Ensure that the person injecting it is experienced, as the material can cause skin to bruise and swell. Good injection technique will help minimize this.

I don’t schedule a routine follow-up visit for everyone two weeks after the initial injection, but occasionally patients will encounter bumpiness and swelling or feel they need more filler, and in those cases I always encourage them to come back after two weeks.
