Radiesse® dermal filler is made of calcium-based microspheres suspended in a water-based gel, and is injected into the skin through a simple and minimally invasive procedure. Radiesse can restore a healthy, youthful appearance; enhance one’s existing features, and assists in the fight against aging and gravity. Radiesse’s patented microsphere technology starts a process called collagenesis, which stimulates the body to produce new collagen and encourages collagen growth around the injection site. It has received CE mark certification, two FDA approvals, and a number of FDA clearances. Radiesse treatment can be performed within the lunch hour, and its results can last up to one year.
