Radiesse®, calcium hydroxyapatite, is safe, new generation cosmetic dermal filler. It is used for the correction of facial lines and wrinkles, restoring a natural, youthful look in an easy, convenient treatment. Numerous medical studies have shown that Radiesse is a long-lasting treatment to fill and correct jowls and jawline contours, as well as augmenting the mid cheek, chin and facial hollows.

Calcium-based microspheres provide a scaffold that promotes soft tissue in-growth. Fibroblasts (collagen producing cells) lay down a collagenous matrix. As matrix is deposited, calcium hydroxyapatite implant becomes integrated into the surrounding tissue, providing long-lasting, natural results. Calcium hydroxyapatite spheres are biodegradable and break down slowly over months to years. Because calcium hydroxyapatite is a normal constituent of bone, it does not elicit a chronic inflammatory or immune response lowering the risk of potential side effects.

Radiesse is long lasting. The longevity ranges between 12 and 18 months. Radiesse is a great treatment option for patients who seek a longer lasting correction.
