About Radiesse

Radiesse, a compound of calcium hydroxyl apatite microspheres that are suspended in a carboxymethylcellulose gel, is a facial filler injected directly into the dermal layer to add volume to deep facial creases, wrinkles and marionette lines. Over time, natural collagen breaks down and skin loses volume and elasticity - Radiesse is unique in it's ability to act as a scaffold under skin, providing structure while stimulating natural collagen to grow, resulting in immediate firmer skin with continued long-term rejuvenation results of new collagen. Radiesse is clinically proven to last a year or more in most patients.
