What is the procedure process of Radiesse?
Radiesse is performed as an outpatient procedure in a doctor’s office. This procedure is performed under local anesthesia and can usually be completed in less than 15 minutes. The first thing that a doctor does is apply antiseptic to the areas of the face that are going to be treated. After that, he identifies the correct amount of filler to use.
