WHAT IS Radiesse? 

RADIESSE is a wrinkle filler used to plump the skin. 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 naturally stimulating your body’s own natural collagen. The natural results have been shown to last a year or more in many patients, making the treatment results both immediate and long lasting.

Radiesse harnesses the power of calcium hydroxyapatite (CaHA) gel microspheres, which contain ions of phosphate and calcium naturally found in the human body. Upon injection, this gel immediately fills the desired volume, providing instant results.

Beyond its immediate effects, CaHA stimulates the body’s natural collagen production over time. This process, aided by the hydrogen, oxygen, and carbon in the gel, encourages the skin to generate its own filler, mimicking the structure of connective tissue.

As CaHA gradually absorbs back into the body, it leaves behind the newly stimulated collagen. Thanks to this innovative approach, Radiesse treatments can deliver long-lasting results, with effects often lasting well over a year and in some cases up to two years.

Frequently Asked Questions

Radiesse and Radiesse (+) are dermal fillers that are FDA-approved to 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). Radiesse is also used for correcting volume loss in the back of the hands.

Radiesse is injected under the skin in a quick procedure that can be done over the lunch hour.

Radiesse consists of calcium hydroxyapatite (CaHA) gel microspheres, which immediately spring into action upon injection. Comprising ions of phosphate and calcium found naturally in the body, CaHA serves as the primary ingredient.

Initially, the injectable gel adeptly fills desired volumes. Over time, however, CaHA initiates the body’s collagen production, encouraging the skin to generate its own filler. Enhanced by the presence of hydrogen, oxygen, and carbon, the gel fosters a structure akin to connective tissue.

As CaHA gradually reabsorbs into the body, it relinquishes its place to the newly stimulated collagen. This scientific mechanism grants Radiesse treatment outcomes that endure well beyond a year, with some individuals experiencing results for up to two years.

Immediately upon injection, Radiesse helps smooth out lines and wrinkles.

The natural-looking results last a year or more in many patients.

Common side effects of Radiesse or Radiesse (+) include bruising, redness, swelling, pain, itching at the site of injection. For a more comprehensive list of side effects for Radiesse or Radiesse (+) refer to the patient information guides found here.
