RADIESSE®, formerly called Radiance, is a synthetic dermal filler made of calcium hydroxyapatite. Calcium hydroxyapatite is an inorganic substance similar to bone. No animals or animal products were used during its production, and no skin testing is needed.
RADIESSE® wrinkle filler’s unique formulation stimulates collagenesis (the production of new collagen). This results in increased volume for natural looking wrinkle correction that may last a year or more in many patients. It is used for soft tissue augmentation and to treat skin folds and wrinkles. When injected into the dermis, RADIESSE® provides a matrix which the body’s own tissue can grow and add volume. In this way, it is used for soft tissue augmentation (e.g. adds volume facial areas such as cheeks), and can help to fill in deep skin folds and wrinkles.
Collagen is what gives volume, flexibility and strength to healthy, young skin. As a part of the aging process, your own natural collagen breaks down, diminishing facial volume and elasticity. This loss of elasticity and volume results in wrinkles, facial lines and skin laxity – all of which rob your skin of its youthful, fresh appearance.
Ideal wrinkle reduction is achieved by replenishing your skin’s lost volume. Upon injection, RADIESSE® Volumizing Filler immediately provides the volume and lift needed to diminish the signs of aging due to the calcium-based microspheres and gel that comprise the product. But what’s unique about RADIESSE® Volumizing Filler is that it acts as a scaffold under the skin, providing structure and stimulating your own natural collagen to grow. This process continues for several months, which extends the initial effect of RADIESSE® Volumizing Filler. Best of all, the natural results are clinically proven to last a year or more in many patients, which is why more and more cosmetic surgeons, dermatologists, and other medical professionals are choosing RADIESSE® Volumizing Filler to achieve long-lasting facial rejuvenation.
Treatment with RADIESSE® Volumizing Filler is quick, comfortable and convenient, with immediately visible, long-lasting results. Experience what millions worldwide have and begin your journey towards a naturally, more refreshed you today.
