Radiesse® is a synthetic injectable filler that has been FDA-approved to reduce
moderate to severe wrinkles, folds and creases around the nose and mouth by
augmenting the skin’s natural collagen supply. It is a safe, effective and long-lasting
alternative to injectable collagen and other dermal fillers for not only smoothing
wrinkles but also adding volume and contour to the face for an overall younger, fuller,
smoother appearance. With just one or two Radiesse® treatments, you can enjoy a
beautiful, natural look that lasts.
What is Radiesse® made of?
Radiesse® is composed of microspheres in a water-based gel. The microspheres –
made of a substance called calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) – stimulate the production
of collagen to smooth lines and wrinkles as well as add younger-looking suppleness to
the face. Radiesse® is made from minerals similar to what makes up our bones. There
is no need for pre-treatment allergy testing, and it is absorbed naturally by the body
What areas does Radiesse® treat?
Radiesse® can be used on many areas of the face and body. Numerous studies have
shown Radiesse® to be especially effective for filling and correcting smile lines,
nasolabial folds (lines from the nose to the corners of the mouth), marionette lines
(from the corners of the mouth to the chin), and other lines and wrinkles around the
nose and mouth. It can also be used to treat depressed scars and oral commissures.
Radiesse® has also been approved by the FDA to restore and correct the signs of
lipoatrophy (loss of fat beneath the skin) in patients with HIV.
