RADIESSE® Wrinkle Filler - How It Works
Healthy young skin contains collagen that gives it volume, flexibility and strength. As part of the aging process, your own natural collagen breaks down, diminishing facial volume. This loss of elasticity and volume results in the wrinkles, facial lines and skin laxity that rob your skin of its youthful appearance.
Welcome Back Your Own Natural Collagen
The ideal way to achieve wrinkle reduction is by replenishing lost volume. With RADIESSE® wrinkle filler, you welcome back your own natural collagen to smooth out the signs of aging. That's because RADIESSE wrinkle filler's unique formulation stimulates collagenesis – the production of new collagen – which results in increased volume for natural looking wrinkle correction that may last a year or more in many patients.
The RADIESSE wrinkle filler difference:
- Stimulates the body's own natural collagen production
- Instantly corrects wrinkles
- Results that may last a year or more in many patients
In just one syringe, many patients can achieve long-lasting youthful results. Because treatment with RADIESSE wrinkle filler is simple, quick, comfortable and convenient, with immediately visible results that last, more and more people are discovering that it is the natural choice for maintaining a more youthful appearance.

FAQ's - Facts about Radiesse
How does Radiesse work?
Radiesse stimulates the body to produce new collagen. Radiesse is made of unique calcium-based microspheres that are suspended in a water-based gel and injected into the skin through a simple, safe, and minimally invasive procedure.
How long does Radiesse last?
The wrinkle treatment results provided by Radiesse dermal filler are immediate and long lasting. The effects of Radiesse may last a year or more in many patients. In addition, Radiesse treatments may require fewer office visits for follow-up treatments. Since results may vary, be sure to discuss your expectations with your physician.
Is Radiesse better than collagen?
The cosmetic use of collagen injections has declined in recent years for several reasons. The most important of these is the fact that collagen injections are associated with a relatively high rate of allergic reactions. As a result, more doctors have turned to safe, effective alternatives like Radiesse. Radiesse is made of calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) that is biocompatible, and similar to what is naturally found in the body. Years of rigorous industry and independent research worldwide have proven that Radiesse is safe and effective, with virtually no risk of allergic reaction.
Is Radiesse safe?
In years of rigorous clinical testing and use by physicians in hundreds of thousands of patients worldwide, Radiesse has been shown to be safe and effective. In the FDA clinical studies there were virtually no allergic reactions. There may be some normal injection related occurrences, such as bruising, discomfort, swelling, or redness that typically resolve on their own.
How much does Radiesse cost?
Because Radiesse treatments are customized for each patient, the cost varies. In general, the cost of Radiesse is comparable to similar procedures. But because Radiesse may require fewer offices visits for follow-up treatments, you most likely will save money and time compared to other treatments. Consult your physician for a recommendation as to how Radiesse can best meet your individual needs.
