Radiesse is a next-generation cosmetic filler used in the treatment of deep lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth – including smile lines, marionette lines, and nasolabial folds. Similar to the makeup of ArteFill®, Radiesse™ cosmetic filler has small microspheres (particles) suspended in a gel-like solution. There is no need for an allergy test prior to Radiesse™ filler injections since the microspheres are comprised of calcium hydroxylapatite, a substance naturally found in the body.
For the first three months after Radiesse treatment, it acts as a cosmetic filler, plumping up the skin and diminishing age lines. Then, Radiesse microspheres stimulate natural collagen growth, actually causing new tissue development for extended results (up to two years). In addition, Radiesse is useful in the treatment of facial lipoatrophy (a stigmatizing effect of HIV), vocal cord deficiencies, oral and maxillofacial defects, as well as scars and chin dimples.
