What is RADIESSE®?
RADIESSE® is wrinkle filler used to plump the skin. It is 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).
How does it work?
RADIESSE® has been in use for almost a decade for tissue augmentation and collagen stimulation. The product is a component of what makes up our bones, calcium hydroxyapatite, which is suspended in a gel.
Because this is exactly what our bones are made of, it does not cause inflammation or immune reaction. It is ultimately absorbed into our body fluids.
When in place, it stimulates our bodies to generate collagen around the microspheres, which replaces the volume of the microspheres as they dissolve away. There is no need to pretest for this product. Its effects may last as long as 2-3 years. RADIESSE® is what is preferred to rejuvenate the back of the hands.

What to Expect?
RADIESSE® is injected through a small needle and placed under the skin. Immediately, this filler works to add volume under the skin and over time, the benefits of RADIESSE® continue by stimulating your body’s own collagen.
How long will it last?
The results have been shown to last a year or more in many patients, making the treatment results both immediate and long lasting.
