Radiesse® is an injectable dermal filler that temporarily adds volume to help smooth moderate to severe facial wrinkles and gives an immediate lifting and firming effect on the skin. Once injected, Radiesse® directly provides volume and lift needed to diminish the signs of ageing because of the calcium-based microspheres and gel that comprise the product. Both the gel and the microspheres are completely broken down by the body over time.
Radiesse® is composed of small calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres suspended in a soft gel matrix. Radiesse® is gently injected by your physician into the skin, usually in small amounts with a very fine needle. For additional treatment comfort, the doctor may apply a local anaesthetic to treated areas. This injection provides an immediate and visible effect. Additionally, Radiesse® stimulates your skin's own regeneration abilities – new collagen is produced over the following weeks and months, making your skin stronger and more elastic. Radiesse® treatment results are long-lasting, but not permanent. Many patients come back to repeat treatments because they are very happy with them. 90 % of men and women are satisfied with the treatment results of Radiesse®.
In addition to an immediate filling effect, the high-quality ingredients of Radiesse® stimulate the skin's natural collagen synthesis. Thanks to the collagen-inducing effect of Radiesse®, the skin regains its youthful tightness and elasticity – your natural beauty blooms again.
Once injected, Radiesse® provides immediate volume and correction but also continues to work by stimulating the skin to produce its own natural collagen. Over time, the gel is absorbed and the body metabolises the CaHA microspheres, leaving behind only the skin's natural collagen.
1. Once injected, Radiesse® shows an immediate one-to-one correction and lifting effect. It can instantly soften your smile lines, replace lost volume in your cheeks, or contour your jawline.
One study showed that Radiesse® Lidocaine achieves the same treatment outcome as Radiesse® and results in significant pain reduction during and throughout the first hour after treatment.
2. Over the following weeks, Radiesse® microspheres stimulate the skin to produce new collagen for a soft, natural look. Newly formed collagen surrounds the microspheres. The microspheres are eventually metabolised by the body's normal processes.
3. The new collagen provides a long-term effect that may last for a year or more in many patients.
*The line extension product, Radiesse® Lidocaine, has been approved by the FDA (the American regulatory authority) and bears the CE mark, which is the European Union’s standard for product safety. The addition of integral lidocaine reliably enhances patient comfort, and combines the excellent lifting and contouring effects of the proven dermal filler Radiesse® with significant pain reduction.
