Radiesse is a cosmetic injectable made with a mineral-based active compound that endows the product with a biostimulatroy mechanism of action. When injected, the semi-solid nature of the product gives instant lifting and volumizing effects. As the gel is gradually absorbed by the body, the active compound remains at the site of the implant where it initiates neocollagenesis through fibroblast activation.
What is it made of?
The principle component of this biorevitalizing filler is synthetic calcium hydroxyapatite in the form of microspheres that are suspended in a carrier gel made of water for injection, glycerin and sodium carboxymethylcellulose.
What are Radiesse’s uses?
Radiesse is approved by the FDA to treat the face and hands. This injectable implant can be used to address aesthetic concerns such as drooping brows or oral commissures, sagging cheeks, acne scars, and moderate to severe skin creases and folds.
How long do its effects last?
Radiesse provides long-lasting effects that can endure for more than one year.
