RADIANCE (ALSO KNOWN AS RADIESSE)
Where Radiance can make a difference?
The formation of lines and creases on the face and the thinning of lips are a natural part of living, not just aging. They occur when the underlying tissues begin to break down. They also result from years of smiling, frowning, squinting or smoking. In other words, these marks of maturity are inevitable. But their permanence need not be. Now you can dramatically minimize lines and creases and restore vitality to your face with Radiance.
Radiance is the ideal treatment for these areas of the face:
•Lines between the nose and mouth, between eyebrows and on the upper lip.
•The so-called "smile lines" and "frown lines."
•Depressions and blemishes like acne scars.
A simple prodedure for long-term satisfaction
Radiance is a non-surgical treatment, performed as a simple injection during an office visit to your physician. A numbing, or anesthetic agent, may be applied to the area, after which Radiance will be injected with a very fine needle designed for cosmetic purposes.
As Radiance is gently injected, it builds up the tissues of the face, reducing folds and creases and restoring fullness. It does not paralyze or act on the face's muscles. Enhancement with Radiance is relatively painless, and any minor swelling from the injection typically disappears within 24 hours. You can comfortably return to normal activities after your treatment. Best of all, you'll see results immediately and can expect to enjoy them for up to three or more years.
Improve on Nature
You need not think that it's too early to enhance your facial features. Perhaps you'd like more voluptuous lips, or want to diminish the appearance of blemish scars from childhood. Radiance can make select areas of your face more to your liking. Ask your physician about the range of possibilities with Radiance.
It passes the 'Kiss Test"'
What will Radiance look and feel like after you've been treated? As a material, Radiance is cream-like in texture and remains that way throughout its life. The sensitivity and feeling of enhanced areas are retained. Once injected, its softness resembles that of your normal facial tissue. In fact, your own tissues will integrate with the Radiance microspheres as a natural process of your body. Since your physician can control the amount of Radiance injected, you can achieve the exact amount of enhancement you desire. Individuals who have received Radiance treatment are very pleased with its natural look and feel. Most important, they say it passes the most crucial test of all — the "kiss test"!
Unique, just like you.
Radiance is unique among treatments to enhance the face and offers a combination of benefits unavailable with other approaches:
•A time-tested synthetic material used in medicine and dentistry.
•Complete safety and compatibility with the body.
•Produces a soft, natural-looking appearance.
•Lasts up to three years or more without repetitive treatments.
•Animal and human tissue-free; no allergy testing required.
•Can be performed during an office visit.

Many options exist for reversing the effects of time and aging on the face, from major surgical procedures to injectable enhancements. Radiance stands alone as a safe, durable and worry-free treatment. In less time than it takes for a hairstyle, you can present a renewed, revitalized face to the world.
