Radiesse is an injectable dermal filler that temporarily adds volume to help smooth moderate to severe facial wrinkles and gives an immediate lifting and firming effect on the skin. Once injected, Radiesse directly provides volume and lift needed to diminish the signs of ageing because of the calcium-based microspheres and gel that comprise the product. Both the gel and the microspheres are completely broken down by the body over time.
Radiesse is an FDA-approved injectable filler used to treat moderate to severe facial wrinkles and smooth marionette lines around the mouth. It can also be used to correct volume loss in the back of the hands. In many patients, results can last a year or more.
RADIESSE® (or Radiance) is a next-generation cosmetic filler used in the treatment of deep lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth – including smile lines, marionette lines, and nasolabial folds. Similar to the makeup of ArteFill®, RADIESSE® cosmetic filler has small microspheres (particles) suspended in a gel-like solution. There is no need for an allergy test prior to RADIESSE® filler injections since the microspheres are comprised of calcium hydroxylapatite, a substance naturally found in the body.
