What is Radiesse®?
Radiesse is a water-based injectable gel carrying tiny calcium-based microspheres used for correcting facial volume loss, wrinkles and folds. The type of calcium found in Radiesse is similar to the same type of calcium found naturally in your bones.
How Does Radiesse® Work?
Radiesse works two ways: first by correcting existing volume loss caused by the natural progression of aging and second by stimulating your body’s own collagen production. Over time the gel and calcium-microspheres are absorbed leaving behind the new collagen resulting in a younger appearance.
Radiesse can correct lines and wrinkles in the nasolabial folds, cheeks, and jawline. Radiesse is FDA approved to be mixed with lidocaine for added patient comfort. Results are immediate and last one year or more.
