New RADIESSE® Formulation for Greater Comfort

In Los Angeles, RADIESSE® is a popular dermal filler for those looking to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The product works to replenish lost volume and smooth out wrinkles due to aging and other factors. This filler has been shown to stimulate the production of new collagen, which is found naturally in the skin.

RADIESSE is now being combined with lidocaine to increase patient comfort. Lidocaine is a local anesthetic that is commonly used by dentists and for minor surgery. After clinical trials showing that patients saw an increase in comfort during the procedure, RADIESSE is now being packaged with a lidocaine formulation.

This combination is beneficial for both patients and physicians. While numbing creams can be administered before a RADIESSE treatment, studies have shown that patient discomfort is lowered when combining lidocaine and RADIESSE as part of the injection.

Have you had a filler treatment that included lidocaine? If so, how would you rate your level of comfort?
