RADIESSE is an injectable dermal filler that works by immediately restoring facial volume to smooth out the signs of aging. Once injected, it works with your body to stimulate the production of your own natural collagen for results that may last a year or more in many patients. (We are starting to believe, however, that all fillers, even hyaluronic acid agents such as Juvederm, also lead to collagen production.) Radiesse is comprised of calcium-based microspheres in a gel carrier, and it is considered to be extremely safe and fully biodegradable with time.
Radiesse is an ideal product for volumizing deeper lines and folds in the lower face, such as the nasolabial folds and jowls. The results of this procedure are visible immediately after the injection and can last for up to a year or even longer. It should not be used in the lips or under the eyes.
