Radiesse®

About Radiesse®

Radiesse is a dermal filler composed of calcium hydroxyapatite (CaHA) microspheres suspended in an aqueous gel carrier. It is used for smoothing moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, as well as correcting volume loss in the back of the hands.

Why Choose Radiesse®

Radiesse stimulates collagen-the body’s main structural protein in our skin responsible for a tight, taught, and youthful look. Once injected, it provides immediate volume and correction and continuously promotes the body’s process of generating collagen for a long-lasting effect.

How long does Radiesse® last?

It works immediately, can last for up to two years, and is highly sought-after choice for dermal filling. Over time our bodies metabolize the CaHA microspheres, leaving behind our own natural collagen.
