Regain your skin’s once illustrious volume. Radiesse® is a safe, calcium-based filler that works with your body to stimulate your own natural collagen for lasting results. An injectable filler, Radiesse® contains tiny calcium-based microspheres which are made of components similar to those found naturally in your body. Eventually, your body will absorb these tiny calcium-based microspheres, and leave behind your natural collagen. Because Radiesse® is a biocompatible composition there is virtually no risk of an allergic reaction or your body rejecting it.
With Radiesse® you can:
- Instantly restore fullness to smooth out signs of aging
- Stimulate your own natural collagen
- Enjoy results for possibly a year or longer
- Treat a broad range of conditions with this affordable correction treatment.
Radiesse® treatment is an excellent value, has little to no downtime and can now be mixed with an anesthetic called lidocaine prior to injection. What that means to you is a safe, FDA-approved approach to significantly more comfortable treatment.
In most cases, patients can return to normal activities almost immediately after treatment.
