Radiesse (+) 0.8ml with Lidocaine Product Specifications
Radiesse (+) 0.8ml with Lidocaine is an FDA-approved cosmetic implant that is made of calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHa) microspheres contained in a semi-solid, aqueous gel carrier. It is indicated for correcting moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds, and replacing facial fat loss caused by immunodeficiency virus infection. Its main component, calcium microspheres, are fully biocompatible and have been widely used in medical products for over 2 decades.
What Radiesse (+) 0.8ml w / Lidocaine is formulated to do?
Radiesse (+) 0.8ml with Lidocaine consists of calcium microspheres, which are naturally found in the bones and teeth. It is a generally safe and effective treatment; skin testing is not required prior to administration of this product. The synthetic CaHa of this filler follows the same metabolic pathway as broken bones in a fracture. Over a period of 2–3 months, the gel carrier (carboxymethylcellulose) will be resorbed in the body and replaced by collagen.
This filler’s immediate and long-lasting results have left many users highly satisfied. During clinical testing, in vivo injections of this filler showed excellent tolerance. When this product is injected in the subdermal layer, small CaHa microspheres will act as scaffolding that stimulates the formation of tissues similar to the surrounding environment. In return, facial shaping or contouring and wrinkle correction can be achieved. The beneficial effects of Radiesse do not stop when the filler is fully absorbed, because the increase in collagen will continue to protect the skin and keep it rejuvenated.
This product is manufactured by Merz Pharma.
This product originates from Europe.
