WHAT IS RADIESSE?
Radiesse is an innovative dermal filler that provides non-surgical face lifting with natural and long-lasting results. It can be used both for facial folds and wrinkles or in the back of the hands to replenish lost volume. The operating principle of this wrinkle treatment differs from other skin fillers since it provides many benefits long after volumizer has already been injected. It continues to stimulate body’s natural collagen so the desired fresh, natural look is the result.

Radiesse is a skin filler comprised of Calcium Hydroxylapatite or CaHa; it could be described as microspheres suspended in a special gel carrier.
Once volumizer has been injected, it works to add an immediate volume and desired correction. After injection, the gel is being absorbed and body simply metabolizes CaHa microspheres so only natural collagen is left in the body.
