Radiesse is a dermal filler made of calcium-based microspheres suspended in a water-based gel. It is injected into the skin through a simple and minimally invasive procedure.
Radiesse is a facial filler that works with your own body in a remarkable way. Upon injection, it immediately adds volume to safely contour, correct, and beautify facial features. And unlike other dermal fillers, Radiesse continues to work over time. With its patented microsphere technology, it starts a process called collagenesis, stimulating your body to produce new collagen and encouraging collagen to grow around the injection area. Radiesse actually helps your body create its own naturally younger look, setting a new standard in facial contouring and augmentation.
How Does Radiesse Work?
Radiesse is made of unique, patented, calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres suspended in a water-based gel carrier. When injected into the skin, these microspheres initially perform as a filler – they immediately provide facial volume for a soft, natural look. The transformation is noticeable right away. Over time, your body will gradually absorb the gel carrier, but the very tiny, smooth microspheres remain.
Does Radiesse Hurt?
Physicians use a variety of pain management techniques during treatment to ensure patient comfort. Please talk to your physician about which techniques are right for you.
Is Radiesse Safe?
Radiesse is an FDA approved dermal filler that has been proven to be safe and effective. It has been thru rigorous clinical testing and has been used by physicians in hundreds of thousands of patients worldwide.
Further, Radiesse is made of calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA), a biocompatible substance that’s identical to what’s naturally found in the body. Radiesse does not contain any animal- or human-derived components and it has a minimal risk of allergic reaction.
After injection, Radiesse will not migrate to other parts of the body. Over time, it degrades naturally into calcium and phosphate ions that are safely metabolized by the body’s own processes.
What To Expect Following Treatment
Very few side effects reported in clinical trials and actual usage. However, you may experience some common injection-related reactions, such as mild irritation, redness, swelling, bruising, or tenderness at the injection site. These conditions typically resolve themselves within one to two days.
