RADIESSE is a filler used to increase the volume of the skin and smoothen out wrinkles along your zones such as your nasolabial folds (smile lines). This filler contains Calcium Hydroxyapatite (CaHA) microspheres measuring 25 µm to 45 µm. The CaHa microspheres are usually suspended in sodium carboxymethylcellulose (CMC), which acts as the gel carrier.
When this RADIESSE is injected into your skin, it increases the volume of your facial features. More importantly, the CMC gel is gradually absorbed into the body over time as it metabolizes the CaHa. The result of this process is the creation of natural collagen.
Due to its effectiveness, RADIESSE has been used in more than 6 million treatments and is still widely used to treat wrinkles and increase volume on the face.
