Why Radiesse?

why radiesse imageRadiesse® is an injectable hydrogel containing minute particles of calcium hydroxyapatite (a substance found naturally in human bones and teeth).


RADIESS® (R) is injected directly under the skin surface, filling and smoothing the area and improving its appearance.


The hydrogel that makes up RADIESSE® carries the calcium hydroxylapatite particles and keeps them in place under the skin, creating a dermal filler.


Radiesse® consists of calcium hydroxyapatite (Caha) gel microspheres that act immediately after injection.


CaHA consists of phosphate and calcium ions, which naturally occur in the human body.


The injectable gel initially fills the desired volume. When CaHA is injected as small microspheres, it acts as a scaffold that promotes the regeneration of tissue that resembles its environment.


In soft tissues such as the dermis, deposited particles help fibroblast ingrowth and the formation of new collagen without calcification.


What is Radiesse?

Radiesse is a dermal filler that consists of an ingredient called calcium hydroxyapatite and uses these small calcium-based microspheres to achieve a deeper effect and to stimulate collagen.


Radiesse Filler is used on the face and in the hands to increase volume immediately and over time and to stimulate the growth of natural collagen.


The use of the filler subtly smoothes lines and wrinkles by replenishing and lifting the skin to create a more youthful contour for the face and hands.


It is introduced into the skin via a small series of injections to fill lines on the face and fill areas of natural volume depletion. A single filler treatment with Radiesse can improve your appearance by replenishing the lost volume for more than a year. Radiesse is not a permanent filler but lasts longer than other dermal fillers. 


Radiesse FAQ's


Who is a good candidate for Radiesse?

Patients with deep furrows, vertical glabellar folds, and nasolabial folds are very good candidates for facial fillers such as Radiesse.  

In addition, patients with one or more of the following conditions should not receive Radiesse implants: acute or chronic skin infection involving the site to be treated, existing keloid scars, systemic collagen diseases, severe bleeding disorders, and the presence of foreign bodies such as silicone.


Where Radiesse is applied?


Several facial areas can be injected to improve or improve some features: glabellar lines, subdermal support of the brows, malar and buccal fat pads, troughs, nasolabial folds, nose, lips, perioral region, puppet wrinkles, mouth compromises, and chin among others. 

Radiesse is also a good solution to correct some lesions such as acne scars.
