What is Radiesse®?
Radiesse is a dermal filler that’s used for cosmetic purposes to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, lines, and folds in the skin. It’s made from calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres suspended in a gel-like solution. When injected into the skin, Radiesse adds volume and stimulates the body’s natural collagen production, helping to improve skin elasticity and smooth out facial wrinkles. It’s commonly used to address lines around the nose and mouth (nasolabial folds), marionette lines, and to enhance cheek contours. Radiesse results are immediate and can last up to a year or more, making it a popular option for non-surgical facial rejuvenation.
Common Aesthetic Concerns Addressed by Radiesse®:
How Does Radiesse® Work?
Radiesse® is a dermal filler that works through a two-fold mechanism to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and volume loss in the face and hands.
1. Immediate Volume: When injected into the target area, Radiesse® provides an immediate volumizing effect. This is due to the gel-like substance in Radiesse®, which contains tiny calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres. These microspheres add volume to the treated area instantly.
2. Collagen Stimulation: While the immediate volume provides immediate results, Radiesse® offers longer-term benefits by stimulating the body’s natural collagen production. Over time, the CaHA microspheres stimulate the formation of new collagen, a crucial protein for maintaining skin elasticity and firmness. As collagen production increases, it enhances the overall quality of the skin, making it appear smoother, firmer, and more youthful.
The combination of immediate volume restoration and collagen stimulation makes Radiesse® an effective and long-lasting solution for addressing wrinkles, fine lines, and volume loss. The results can last for several months to over a year, depending on the specific treatment area and individual factors.

The Science Behind Radiesse®:
Radiesse® utilizes a unique scientific approach for addressing common signs of aging. It consists of tiny calcium-based microspheres suspended in a gel-like solution. Upon injection, it provides immediate volume and support, while its calcium microspheres stimulate natural collagen production. Over time, collagen replaces the microspheres, resulting in smoother, youthful skin. Radiesse® is safe, biocompatible, and versatile, making it effective for various facial and hand rejuvenation purposes. Its dual-action approach provides both instant improvements and long-term skin enhancement, making it a valuable tool in the world of non-surgical aesthetics.
