Radiesse® dermal filler is made of calcium-based microspheres suspended in a water-based gel and is injected into the skin through a simple and minimally invasive procedure.
Radiesse® dermal filler is the ideal choice for lower face contouring and hands. It can restore a healthy, youthful appearance, enhance your existing features, help you defy age and gravity, and increase your confidence – all without invasive surgery or scarring.
Radiesse® dermal filler works with your own body in a remarkable way. Upon injection, it immediately adds volume to safely contour, correct, and beautify facial features. And unlike other fillers, Radiesse® dermal filler continues to work overtime. With its patented microsphere technology, it starts a process called collagenases, stimulating your body to produce new collagen and encouraging collagen to grow around the injection area. Radiesse® dermal filler actually helps your body create its own naturally younger look, setting a new standard in facial contouring and augmentation

RADIESSE® and RADIESSE® (+) are available by prescription only.
Tell your health care provider if you are taking blood thinners or medicines that can interfere with the clotting of blood, such as aspirin or warfarin. These medicines might make it more likely that you will experience bruising or bleeding at the injection site. Tell your health care provider if you have any diseases, injuries, or disabilities of the hand if you have a history forming large, raised scars, or if you have had any other skin treatments such as skin peels.
One of the risks of using these products is unintentional injection into a blood vessel. The chances of this happening are very small, but if it does happen, the complications can be serious and may be permanent. These complications, which have been reported for facial injections, can include vision abnormalities, blindness, stroke, temporary scabs, or permanent scarring of the skin. If you have changes in your vision, signs of a stroke (including sudden difficulty speaking, numbness or weakness in your face, arms, or legs, difficulty walking, face drooping, severe headache, dizziness, or confusion), a white appearance of the skin, or unusual pain during or shortly after treatment, you should notify your health care practitioner immediately.
As with all procedures that involve an injection through the skin, there is a risk of infection.
Do not use RADIESSE® or RADIESSE® (+) if you have a skin infection until it has healed.
It is not known if RADIESSE® or RADIESSE® (+) is safe or effective in the lips, or in the area around the eyes.
The microspheres in RADIESSE® and RADIESSE® (+) can be seen in X-rays and CT Scans. It is very important that you tell your health care provider that you have had RADIESSE® or RADIESSE® (+) dermal filler.
If you have a history of herpes, you may experience a herpes breakout after receiving RADIESSE® or RADIESSE® (+).
Injection in the back of the hand may result in temporary difficulty performing activities. RADIESSE® may cause nodules, bumps or lumps in the back of the hand and can last up to 1 year.
You should minimize strenuous activity and avoid extensive sun or heat exposure for about 24 hours after treatment and until any swelling or redness has resolved.
RADIESSE® and RADIESSE® (+) are dermal fillers that are used for smoothing moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds (the creases that extend from the corner of your nose to the corner of your mouth). RADIESSE® is also used for correcting volume loss in the back of the hands.
