Radiesse is a water-based injectable skin/wrinkle filler that contains hydroxylapatite microspheres; comprised mainly of calcium and phosphate ions, that occur naturally in the human body.
When Radiesse is injected, your own tissue forms around theses microspheres, filling wrinkles and creating a semi-permanent support structure for the skin. These microspheres, after injection, provide a framework, into which the body’s own natural collagen can grow, resulting in a long lasting effect. The product is perfect for facial contouring and for plumping the deeper folds of the skin such as nasolabial folds and marionette lines. It will usually remain in place for ten to fourteen months.
