Radiesse® is a long lasting injectable dermal filler. It contains calcium-based microspheres, suspended in a natural gel. When injected, these microspheres support foundation of the skin and stimulate the growth of collagen. Radiesse® is used to fill and correct smile lines, nasolabial folds and wrinkles around the nose and mouth.
Results are immediate, and generally last a year or more. Temporary side effects such as irritation, edema, swelling, itching, discoloration, or tenderness at the injection site may occur, but are usually mild and disappear in a day or so.
