What is RADIESSE®?
RADIESSE® is a dermal filler that is FDA-approved to 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). RADIESSE® is also used to correct volume loss in the back of the hands.
How does RADIESSE® work?
RADIESSE® is comprised of calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres suspended in an aqueous gel carrier. Over time, the gel is absorbed, and the body metabolizes the CaHA microspheres, leaving behind only your own natural collagen. RADIESSE® is injected through a small needle and immediately adds volume under the skin.
How long does RADIESSE® last?
Over time, RADIESSE® stimulates your body’s own natural collagen, making the treatment results both immediate and long lasting. The natural results have been shown to last a year or more in many patients.
