Radiesse skin fillers


What is Radiesse?
Radiesse contains tiny Calcium Hydroxylapatite(CaHA) microspheres in a water-based gel. Over time, the gel is absorbed and the body metabolizes these tiny calcium-based microspheres, leaving behind only your own natural collagen. The CaHA particles slowly dissolve into calcium and phosphate ions through normal metabolic processes.

Calcium Hydroxylapatite(CaHA) microspheres make up 30% of Radiesse.

Calcium Hydroxylapatite(CaHA) microspheres is a naturally occurring mineral in humans and is therefore inherently biocompatible. It is the mineral component found in bones and teeth.

Calcium Hydroxylapatite(CaHA) microspheres has an identical molecular and chemical composition to that in the human body, so it does not elicit a foreign body responses.

Calcium Hydroxylapatite(CaHA) microspheres are biocompatible and integrate into the patient’s tissue as new collagen is produced.

It can replenish volume and stimulates new collagen formation for long-lasting results.

It reduces the wrinkles by replenishing skin’s lost volume.

Radiesse Volumizing Filler immediately provides the volume and lift needed to revitalize the face, for a natural-looking, uplifting look. It contours the face to restore volume to chin, cheeks, and cheekbones that have become hollow or thin due to weight loss or age-related facial fat loss. Immediately after the treatment, you should notice that your facial contours appear fuller. Giving your face a softer, more youthful appearance.

It is used for nose augmentation as well as cheek augmentation. It can be used to raise the bridge of the nose and to give more projection to the nose.
