Radiesse is a relatively new injectable product that is unique for its long-lasting effect and its ability to be molded.
The unique composition of Radiesse provides immediate visual improvement common with other fillers, along with the benefit of long-lasting results. This is because Radiesse is made of very tiny, smooth calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres. The microspheres (particles) form a scaffold through which your bodys own collagen grows, and this produces the desired long-term effect. These unique advantages make Radiesse the ideal choice for facial shaping and contouring. Since Radiesse doesn’t elicit a chronic inflammatory or immune response it does not require allergy testing.
Radiesse can be injected into facial folds/lines, depressed scars or other areas of cosmetic correction. Its longevity is 10-18 months depending on the area treated and the metabolism of the person being treated.
