RADIESSE® and RADIESSE® (+) are dermal fillers that are used for smoothing moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds (the creases that extend from the corner of your nose to the corner of your mouth). RADIESSE® has recently been FDA approved jawline contouring.
Once injected, Radiesse® provides immediate lift and correction but continue to work by stimulating the body to produce its own natural collagen for a more refreshed appearance. This is due to calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres suspended in the aqueous gel carrier. Over time, the gel is absorbed and the body metabolizes the calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres, leaving behind only your own natual collagen.
