Radiesse® is a unique dermal filler made from synthetic calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres suspended in a water-based gel carrier.
Once injected, the gel matrix augments the volume of the dermis instantly. Additionally, Radiesse continues to work over time. Radiesse stimulate’s the production of the body’s own collagen, which prolongs the volume replacement over an extended period of time.
Radiesse is the ideal choice for total facial and hand contouring. It can restore a healthy, youthful appearance, enhance your existing features, help you defy the signs of ageing, and increase your confidence – all without invasive surgery.
Radiesse® is used in many areas to enhance volume:
Nasolabial folds: reducing the lines that go from the nose to the corner of the mouth.
Shallow cheeks: replenishing the volume loss caused by reduced collagen production and fat.
Marionette lines: reducing the lines that go from the corner of the mouth down to the jaw line.
Nose, chin and chin fold: correcting indentations, tips, bumps and unevenness.
Jaw lines: defining the contours of this area.
Eyebrow and temple: lifting the eyebrows and filling out the hollow temples.
Earlobe: enhancing the fullness and smoothness of the earlobes.
Hand: retaining a plump and youthful appearance on the back of the hands.

How long does the effect of Radiesse® last?
