RADIESSE is a wrinkle filler used to plump the skin. RADIESSE is injected through a small needle and placed under the skin. Immediately, this filler works to add volume under the skin and over time, the benefits of RADIESSE continue by naturally stimulating your body’s own natural collagen. The natural results have been shown to last a year or more in many patients, making the treatment results both immediate and long lasting. Over time, the gel is absorbed and the body metabolizes the CaHA microspheres leaving behind only your own natural collagen. RADIESSE is FDA approved to mix with lidocaine, an anesthetic, to significantly reduce injection-related pain.
