• Delivers immediate correction
  • Typically requires only one treatment for optimal results for most patients (a touch-up may be required)
  • Stimulates the body to produce new collagen over time
  • Results last up to a year or more for many patients
  • Reduces the need for re-treatment
  • More cost-effective for many patients
  • Soft, natural-looking results that feel like the patient's own tissue
  • Primary component is identical in composition to the mineral portion of bones and teeth
  • Contains no human- or animal-derived components
  • Virtually no risk of allergic reaction
  • Does not require sensitivity testing prior to treatment

How It Works

RADIESSE® wrinkle filler is an injectable implant composed of synthetically produced smooth calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres (diameter of 25µm to 45µm) suspended in a sodium carboxymethylcellulose gel carrier. RADIESSE wrinkle filler is approximately 30% CaHA and 70% gel carrier by volume.

RADIESSE wrinkle filler is injected into the skin in a minimally invasive procedure. Injection of the product provides an immediate one-to-one correction of the face wrinkle. The amount of filling or augmentation can be easily placed and controlled for better results. There is no skin sensitivity testing or reconstitution required.

Over time, the gel is absorbed, and fibroblasts appear. The process of neocollagenesis begins, stimulating the gradual growth of the patient's own collagen. The collagen that forms results in extended correction times and increased patient satisfaction.

The cosmetic results are soft and natural-looking, and feel like the patient's own tissue. The results are long-lasting, but not permanent. The CaHA microspheres naturally degrade to calcium and phosphate ions, which are metabolized by the body's normal processes.

Upon injection, RADIESSE wrinkle filler immediately adds volume to facial features.

After two to three months, macrophages start to dissolve the sodium carboxymethylcellulose gel carrier. The CaHA microspheres remain.

Macrophages continue to dissolve the gel carrier. Fibroblasts form new collagen.

New resident tissue (collagen) surrounds the CaHA microspheres.
