Radiesse®

Radiesse®

Radiesse® is a unique filler because it utilizes a calcium-based microsphere technology to provide immediate volume restoration and stimulates the body to produce new collagen—something no other filler does. Because it is not a protein, there is no risk of allergic reaction to this product. Radiesse is used predominantly to fill the midface, temples and nasolabial folds, as well as the marionette lines and other areas of the lower face. It is never used between the brows, in the lips or directly under the eyes. What’s unique about Radiesse is that it acts as a scaffold under the skin, stimulating and providing a structure where your own natural collagen can grow. This process continues for several months to extend the initial effect of Radiesse.
