Radiesse Dermal Filler

What is Radiesse Volumizing Filler?

Radiesse Volumizing Filler is an FDA-approved dermal filler for subnormal implantation to correct wrinkles and folds such as the smile lines. Radiesse is composed of calcium-based microspheres and gel that immediately fill and lift the areas needed to diminish visible signs of aging. Radiesse has the unique ability to stimulate the body's own natural collagen and form a scaffold under the skin. The natural collagen stimulation can continue for several months and last up to a year or more. 


Who Should Receive Radiesse Filler?

Radiesse can be used to almost anyone who starts to see visible signs of aging. Patients who have a history of severe allergies manifested by anaphylaxis, a history of bleeding disorders, a history of the presence of multiple severe allergies or with a history of hypersensitivity to the components of Radiesse are not candidates for treatment.

How is the Treatment Performed?
