RADIESSE® is a long lasting dermal filler that provides an instant lift by restoring lost volume. RADIESSE® is composed of calcium hydroxylapatite, a synthetic form of a mineral found in teeth and bones that stimulates collagen production for longer lasting results. It can be used to restore lost volume in the cheeks and lower face, effectively treating moderate to severe wrinkles and folds. RADIESSE® is also FDA-approved to replace volume loss in the back of the hands. RADIESSE® continues to work with your body, stimulating the natural production of collagen for a more refreshed appearance that can last up to one year or more in many patients.
