Manufactured by Merz Aesthetics
Radiesse® is an injectable dermal filler that temporarily adds volume to help smooth moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds (the creases that extend from the corner of your nose to the corner of your mouth). Once injected, it works with your body to stimulate the production of your own natural collagen. It is very effective in deep wrinkle reduction, lifting and contouring.
How It Works
- RADIESSE is a unique calcium based filler made from calcium hydroxylapatite suspended in an aqueous gel.
- It is injected through a fine needle and placed under the skin. Once injected, it provides immediate volume and correction but continues to work by stimulating the body to produce its own natural collagen providing additional structure after the initial effects of RADIESSE have diminished.
- Over time, the gel is absorbed and the body metabolizes the CaHA (calcium hydroxylopatite) microspheres leaving behind only your natural collagen.
Treatment results are immediate and long lasting, providing wrinkle relief for up to a year in many patients. Unlike other fillers, Radiesse has the ability to both immediately restore lost volume and stimulate your body to produce its own natural collagen for long-lasting results. This treatment is quick, comfortable and convenient, with immediately visible, long-lasting results.
