What is Radiesse?
Radiesse is a dermal filler that is made from calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres. These microspheres are suspended in a gel carrier, which is injected into the skin to add volume and smooth out wrinkles and fine lines. Radiesse is a popular choice for patients who want to achieve a more youthful and refreshed appearance without undergoing invasive surgical procedures.
How does Radiesse work?
Radiesse works by adding volume to the skin, which helps to smooth out wrinkles and fine lines. When injected into the skin, the gel carrier provides immediate volume, while the CaHA microspheres stimulate the body’s natural collagen production. Over time, the microspheres are gradually absorbed by the body, leaving behind new collagen fibers that help to maintain the results of the treatment.

Radiesse offers several benefits for patients who are looking to restore volume to their face and smooth out wrinkles and fine lines:
- Immediate results: Radiesse provides immediate volume to the skin, which means that patients can see a noticeable improvement in their appearance right away.
