Radiesse is a dermal filler that is used to treat moderate to severe facial folds and wrinkles. It also helps to correct facial volume loss due to the natural aging process. Apart from that, Radiesse is able to stimulate the collagen regeneration, helping to naturally heal the skin. As a result, signs of aging are significantly reduced. More recently, Radiesse has been approved by the FDA for hand augmentation. Radiesse is also ideal for augmenting the chin, nose, and lips.
How does Radiesse work?
Radiesse is made of an aqueous gel carrier and calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres. Once administered, Radiesse acts by volumizing facial areas that lack volume. At the same time, it fills out folds and wrinkles for dramatically younger looking skin. More importantly, Radiesse exerts its effects gradually to promote the body’s collagen synthesis, helping to replenish the lost collagen in the skin. The biodegradable microspheres will eventually be metabolized by th ...

Radiesse is a high-performance filler that consists of calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres as its active ingredients. It is commonly used to reduce the look of wrinkles and folds on the face. At the same time, it is effective in correcting facial volume loss due to aging. Moreover, the versatile filler is used on the lips, nose, and chin for contouring and augmentation.
The science behind Radiesse
Radiesse injections are infused with calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres which are suspended in a gel carrier. The highly effective filler acts on sunken areas to provide volumizing effects. It also smooths the appearance of lines and wrinkles, helping patients to look and feel younger. The microspheres exert their collagen-regenerating actions gradually to replenish the levels of collagen in the skin. Designed to be biodegradable, the CaHA microspheres will eventually be decomposed through the natural metabolism process.

The aging cheek
A youthful face generally looks round and full. Aging causes sagging that suggests tiredness. These changes, which can be further compounded by the effects of gravity, occur at every layer of the facial anatomy that begins at the facial skeleton. Lipoatrophy, bone resorption, and increased laxity of the membranes contribute to the pseudo-herniation of facial fat over the zygoma and maxilla bony structures. As they migrate medially, the skin cannot be maintained in its original position. At the lower face, it leads to the formation of jowls at the mandibular border.
The current trend regarding facial rejuvenation seems to be moving away from the traditional facelift and blepharoplasty, which can incur long downtimes and can be a heavy financial burden for most patients. Soft-tissue volume augmentation procedures, such as dermal filler injections, can have a significant impact on the delay of facial aging, as they provide natural-looking, long-lasting results. It is sh ...
