Natural collagen is what gives skin a smooth, supple, youthful appearance. As you age, natural collagen breaks down, resulting in wrinkles and loss of facial volume.
Radiesse, a dermal filler, provides an instant lift, filling wrinkles and folds to help restore a more youthful look to your skin. After injection, it continues to work with your body, stimulating the natural production of collagen for a more refreshed appearance that can last up to a year or more in many patients.
How it works
The unique Radiesse formula provides a robust lift in the area below deep wrinkles and folds, diminishing their appearance for a more refreshing look and gentle stimulation of the body’s natural collagen production. Ideal for the following areas:
- Nasolabial folds
- Marionette lines
- Pre-jowl folds
- Downturned corners of the mouth
- Chin wrinkles
- Also for the rejuvenation of the hands
What is Radiesse made of?
Radiesse is made of tiny calcium-based microspheres which are suspended in a natural water-based gel. These calcium-based microspheres are similar to minerals that are found natural in your body, so allergy testing is not required. Similar to HA, over time, your body absorbs these tiny microspheres and the gel, leaving behind only your own natural collagen.
