What is Radiesse® dermal filler?
Radiesse® dermal filler is setting a new standard for facial contouring and augmentation. It immediately adds volume to safely contour, correct, and beautify facial features. And it continues to work over time. It has patented microsphere technology and stimulates the body to produce new collagen for a soft, natural look that lasts.
Radiesse® is a long lasting injectable filler, composed of calcium hydroxylapatite, a synthetic form of a mineral found in teeth and bones. Radiesse® stimulates your body to produce your own natural collagen, therefore helps to restore fullness and smoothes the signs of aging. Results may last up to a year.
How does Radiesse® dermal filler work?
Radiesse® dermal filler is made of unique, patented, calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres suspended in a water-based gel carrier. When injected into the skin, these microspheres initially perform as a filler – they immediately provide facial volume for a soft, natural look. The transformation is noticeable right away. Over time, your body will gradually absorb the gel carrier, but the very tiny, smooth microspheres remain.
Once injected, Radiesse® dermal filler starts a process called neocollagenesis, or the creation of new collagen. It stimulates collagen production in your own body and encourages collagen growth around the injection site. In many cases, results may last up to a year or more.
