Radiesse is an injection product containing calcium, a mineral component which is produced naturally by the body. Radiesse fills in wrinkles, restores volume and redefines the facial contours
Radiesse is particularly well suited to a comprehensive facial approach, to either rejuvenate or correct imperfections.
- Fills in facial wrinkles: nasolabial folds, marionette lines, the oral commissure, etc.
- Correct bumps and small irregularities on the nose.
- Gives volume to the temples, cheekbones and cheeks.
- Fills the hollow of the chin.
- Restores prominence to the chin and improves the symmetry of the jaw.
Unlike hyaluronic acid, Radiesse does not retain water. For certain indications, the restoration of the volumes therefore seems more natural.
Radiesse is composed of minute microspheres based on calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) suspended in an aqueous gel. These synthetic microspheres are similar to the naturally occurring minerals in the bones and teeth.
At the moment of the injection, the vector gel and the microspheres provide an immediate filling. Radiesse acts as a frame under the skin, giving it a structure and stimulating the production of collagen. After 12 months, the product is reabsorbed, leaving room for a new denser skin tissue.
After the treatment
Bruising, slight swelling or numbness can occur for several days after a Radiesse injection.
The result is visible immediately and lasts for 10 to 14 months. Radiesse reduces wrinkles with a lifting effect and improves facial volumes.
