RADIESSE® is a volumizing dermal filler that is used to fill out deep wrinkles and lines around the nose and mouth, and add contours to areas of the face that have lost their shape, such as the cheeks and jaw line.
It’s a filler-like substance that is injected deep into the skin to volumize deep wrinkles and other areas that have lost significant volume!
Radiesse is made of synthetic calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHa), which is similar to the calcium found in your teeth and bones, suspended in a gel. Upon injection, Radiesse immediately fills up targeted areas, for instant results, then as the gel is absorbed by your body, it leaves behind microspheres of CaHA, which act as a scaffold to support your skin’s weakened structure and promote the growth of new collagen. Over a span of 2 to 3 years, the CaHA particles completely metabolize while new collagen grows in its place.
