Radiesse® treatment delivers the complete and youthful beauty of the face with a natural look that lasts longer, without surgery or the risks of permanent implants.
Radiesse® Volumizing Filler is made of tiny calcium-based microspheres which are suspended in a natural, water-based gel. These calcium based microspheres are similar to minerals that are found naturally in your body.
Unique properties of the filler is that it acts as a scaffold under the skin, providing structure and stimulating your own natural collagen to grow. This process continues for several months,
which extends the initial effect of Radiesse® Volumizing Filler.
Results are immediate upon injection with noticeable volume restoration and lift needed to diminish the signs of aging.

There are three major parts to our skin: collagen, elastin, GAGs (Glycosaminoglycans).
Collagen is a main structural protein found throughout our body. Collagen provides the strength and gives volume to our tissue and organs require while elastin provides the ability to stretch and recoil.
As we age and we subject our skin to greater and greater amounts of sun damage, we degrade our skin's collagen, diminishing facial volume and elasticity. This loss of elasticity and volume results in wrinkles, facial lines and skin laxity.
The goal Radiesse Volumizing Filler injection is to stimulate collagen production. This process continues for several months, which extends the initial effect of Radiesse Volumising Filler.
