Radiesse® is an FDA-approved synthetic filler that has helped men and women alike reduce the appearance of moderate to severe wrinkles and creases. Many of us notice those unwanted signs of aging around the nose and mouth due to a loss of volume in the those areas. Radiesse® is a filler that is administered via injection to “fill in” those areas to create a smoother, more youthful appearance. This safe, effective, and long-lasting filler can be a good alternative to collagen injections or other dermal fillers when appropriate.
Made of a substance called calcium hydorxylapatite (CaHA), these microspheres in a water-based gel stimulate the production of collagen. Since the substance is naturally occurring in our bodies, there is no risk for allergic reaction. Radiesse® injections are administered in as few as 15 minutes with no downtime required afterwards for recovery.
