WHAT IS RADIESSE ?
RADIESSE® dermal filler is an FDA-approved, next-generation filler that is setting a new standard for the correction of facial lines and wrinkles such as nasolabial folds.
Made of calcium-based microspheres suspended in a water-based gel, RADIESSE dermal filler is injected into the skin through a simple and minimally invasive procedure giving you immediate, visible improvement of folds and wrinkles, and providing long-lasting and beautiful results. In many patients, the effects of RADIESSE treatment may last a year or more. Offering clinically proven safety and longevity, RADIESSE treatment stimulates the body to produce new collagen — often with just one or two office visits. Get beautiful results and long-lasting wrinkle correction.
Radiesse is a pure, synthetic compound with a record of safety that extends more than 25 years. Radiesse consists of tiny micro spheres of a synthetic material called calcium hydroxylapatite (30%) that is combined with a common hydrogel (70%) used in a vast array of products. The result is a white, creamy like substance. Calcium hydroxylapatite has chemical and structural characteristics similar to bone and therefore is naturally compatible with the body.
When injected, the cream-like texture of Radiesse feels soft and natural. Following injection, the body forms a tissue matrix around the Radiesse microspheres. Unlike temporary treatments that must be repeated frequently, Radiesse provides years of rejuvenation. Throughout its life, Radiesse remains soft and flexible and also exceptionally compatible with the body. It is gradually replaced by the body’s own tissue, and slowly dissolves away in time.
Radiesse™ is uses to soften and reduce some of the facial lines such as the nasolabial folds (the lines between your nose and mouth) and the marionette lines (the lines that run down from your mouth). Radiesse™ can also be used to reshape the jaw line. Like other fillers, these results can be achieved with a simple in-office visit. The results with Radiesse™can be seen immediately.
Radiesse™ is gently injected into the skin in small amounts with a very fine needle. Its exclusive calcium-based microsphere technology contains tiny particles that form a scaffold around which the body is stimulated to produce new collagen. This unique response provides immediate, visible improvement of folds and wrinkles, while the body’s own collagen naturally restores a fuller, more youthful appearance that keeps patients looking better even longer. The FDA approved Radiesse™ for the correction and filling for moderate to severe facial folds and wrinkles, including nasolabial folds.
Radiesse is recommended for:
- Nasolabial Folds – Laugh lines
- Cheek Augmentation
- Non-surgical Nose Reshaping
- Bridge Augmentation
- Hand Rejuvenation
RADIESSE dermal filler has been clinically tested extensively for years, with excellent safety and efficacy results. It has received CE mark certification, two FDA approvals, and a number of FDA clearances. RADIESSE dermal filler is made from a biocompatible substance that’s identical to what’s naturally found in the body. There’s virtually no risk of allergic reaction, and there have been very few side effects reported in clinical trials and actual use.

Treatment with RADIESSE dermal filler is so simple and convenient, it can be performed during a lunch hour. You’ll see the results right away – and these results may last up to a year or more for many patients.
