Radiesse® is a calcium hydroxylapatite microsphere that resembles calcium in the body. It is used to fill in the loss of volume in the face and restore youth to the hands. Radiesse® works to stimulate collagen and give a youthful look. The results can be seen immediately.
Radiesse® is delivered to the face and hands by way of an injection. For comfort, a local anesthetic can be given, but often times none is needed. A person can expect some swelling and occasional bruising. The swelling can last 24 hours.
RADIESSE is comprised of Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres suspended in an aqueous gel carrier.
Once injected, it provides immediate volume and correction but continues to work by stimulating the body to produce its own natural collagen.
Over time, the gel is absorbed and the body metabolizes the CaHA microspheres leaving behind only your own natural collagen.

Any healthy adult 21 yrs and older is eligible for Radiesse®. For best results it is important to not be a smoker and drink minimal alcohol.
Radiesse® treatment is done to enhance the areas on the face that have lost volume and elasticity. The microspheres work with the skin’s collagen to regain that fullness. It can cause swelling that will resolve in 24 hours. Bruising may take up to a week to resolve depending on the person. Some may notice little lumps where the filler has been placed and these too resolve as it is integrated with the skin’s dermal layers.
You can see results immediately after treatment and improvement continues over time. People may need touch ups in 8 months to a year depending on the person. With continued treatment you will experience a more youthful look overall.
