What does Radiesse consist of?
RADIESSE is made of unique calcium-based microspheres suspended in a water-based gel carrier. It is injected into the skin through a simple, safe, and minimally invasive procedure.
How does Radiesse work?
RADIESSE works with your body, below the skin’s surface. Tiny calcium-based microspheres form a “scaffold” to support and stimulate the growth of your own collagen. Over time, the microspheres gradually break down and are safely and naturally absorbed by your body.
Radiesse continues to stimulate the body to produce new collagen until the microspheres are also safely and naturally absorbed into your body. Macrophages start to degrade gel carrier (2-3 Months).Macrophages dissolve gel carrier as new collagen forms. Collagen growth provides for a long term augmentation that may last for a year or more in many patients.Though your body will absorb the gel carrier over time, collagen will start to grow and infiltrate the area in the meantime, thus replacing the gel with your own collagen.
