Radiesse is a dermal filler, made up of calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres, that is used to smooth the skin and add volume to areas like the face,neck and chest. Radiesse adds initial volume after injection but it continues working after by stimulating collagen and elastin. The microspheres from radiesse absorb overtime leaving your body's collagen in its place.
Q: What is Radiesse?
A: Radiesse is an injectable filler used to plump wrinkled or folded areas of the skin, most often on the face, neck and chest. As it works, Radiesse stimulates the naturally-occurring collagen beneath your skin. It works immediately, and can last for up to two years.
Q: Is Radiesse permanent?
A: No, although treatment results are relatively long-lasting. Over time, the tiny calcium-based microspheres gradually break down, which are safely and naturally absorbed into the body, leaving your own collagen in their place.
Q: How much downtime is needed?
A: You may experience bruising and swelling for about a week after.
