RADIESSE® + Lidocaine by Merz Aesthetics is a calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHa) gel-based injectable dermal filler intended for subcutaneous to supraperiosteal implantation to add volume and definition to the lower facial contours – tightening and lifting jowls and buccula whilst smoothing and correcting moderate to severe facial lines and furrows (marionette and nasolabial).
Including 0.3% Lidocaine pain-relief – RADIESSE® + Lidocaine increases natural collagen production, skin hydration and elasticity, offering immediate naturally more youthful results with long term effects lasting up to twelve months or more.
Highly biocompatible, further RADIESSE® + Lidocaine applications include reshaping & smoothing small nasal imperfections as well as correcting dorsal hand depressions and volume deficiencies.
Effects: improved skin hydration, elasticity, fullness – a more luminous, naturally youthful appearance whilst maintaining natural facial expression.

Important treatment considerations for those with severe allergies and history of severe reactions (anaphylaxis) and those with allergies to the anaesthetic, Lidocaine.
Additional considerations: skin sores, rashes, cysts, hives and pimples; pregnancy & breastfeeding; bleeding disorders (re: injection site); scarring, skin-pigmentation disorders and the use of RADIESSE® + Lidocaine in conjunction with other skin therapies e.g. laser treatment, chemical peels, etc.
Treatment may result in some mild to moderate swelling, itchiness, bruising and / or tenderness which normally dissipates over a 24 to 48 hour period dependent on the sensitivity of injection site.
Should temporary swelling, soreness and / or itching at the injection site occur, an ice-pack applied for relief is recommended.
Seek immediate medical attention should symptoms persist.
In the rare event RADIESSE® + Lidocaine is injected intravascularly – seek immediate medical attention.
Complications may be serious and permanent and may cause scarring; damage to underlying facial structures; skin necrosis; stroke; vision abnormalities and impairment.
Due to normal skin-sensitivity following dermal filler treatment – strenuous activity should be avoided for at least 24 hrs and sun / heat exposure for at least one week.
Alcohol consumption should also be avoided for a minimum 24 hours following treatment as alcohol (acting as a blood-thinner) can cause blood vessels to dilate, leading to increased swelling and bruising.
Use within the expiration date on package.
