What is Radiesse?
Radiesse is a safe, FDA approved dermal filler that restores a natural, long lasting, youthful look. This convenient treatment can restore facial volume as well as correct smile lines, nasolabial folds and wrinkles around the nose and mouth. Radiesse is made of unique calcium-based microspheres suspended in a natural gel that is injected into the skin through a simple, safe and minimally invasive procedure.
How does Radiesse work?
Radiesse works with your body, below the skin's surface. Tiny calcium-based micropheres form a scaffold to support and stimulate the growth of your own collagen. Over time, the calcium-based micropheres gradually break down and are safely and naturally absorbed by your body. Radiesse does more than just temporarily fill-in facial folds and wrinkles - it can restore facial volume for the youthful look you want.
