What Is Radiesse®?

Radiesse® is an injectable filler brand that contains calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres suspended in a gel carrier. Its ingredients are non-toxic, non-allergenic, and compatible with the body’s natural tissues used to plump wrinkled or folded areas of the skin, most commonly on the face and hands. Radiesse® stimulates the naturally occurring collagen beneath the skin, providing immediate volume and encouraging the development of new collagen over time. Radiesse® treatments are most often given in the skin surrounding the nose and mouth, even to fill in wrinkled areas on the hands. People who have experienced fat loss in their facial area due to conditions like HIV infection can also get Radiesse® to fill the volume loss.

How Does Radiesse® Work?

Radiesse® is considered a dermal filler that combines science and aesthetics. Once a site is injected, it provides immediate contouring by filling wrinkles and folds. The calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres gel matrix is effective for moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, including nasolabial folds (smile lines), marionette lines, downturned corners of the mouth, and pre-jowl folds (sagging skin on either side of the chin). It brings back volume to the hands, particularly for areas affected by HIV-associated fat loss, also known as lipoatrophy. Also it is excellent for providing volume and contour to the cheeks.
