Radiesse® is a safe, FDA-approved dermal filler composed of calcium hydroxyapatite, an artificial dermal filler that provides a natural framework for the growth of your own soft tissues. When injected, the gel carrier creates a temporary fill. Radiesse® stimulates your body’s own collagen and acts as a scaffold beneath the skin, creating natural volume and contour just where you want it. Indeed, Radiesse® has been clinically proven to last a year or more in many patients.
