Radiesse is a volumizing cosmetic dermal filler that replenishes volume in the face and body due to the loss of collagen. This filler is composed of small calcium-based microspheres suspended in a gel and water-based mixture. This filler is specifically designed to help stimulate the body’s own collagen production in order to minimize the signs of aging like fine lines, wrinkles, and skin folds around the nose and mouth as well as to help fill and reduce the appearance of certain types of scarring.
Radiesse treatments involve a series of small injections and can often be completed in as little as 30 minutes with its effects lasting a year or more. Many patients return after a year or so only for small touch-ups due to this filler’s long-lasting effects.
