RADIESSE

RADIESSE®

Lift & Contour with long-term collagen stimulation

Healthy young skin contains collagen that gives it volume, flexibility and strength. As part of the ageing process, the skin's natural collagen breaks down resulting in the loss of facial volume. This loss of elasticity and volume results in wrinkles, facial lines, and skin laxity that rob the skin of its youthful appearance. RADIESSE® stimulates the skin’s production of collagen to restore volume in the skin, smooth away wrinkles and improve skin quality in the long-term.

RADIESSE® is now also available with integral 0.3% lidocaine (RADIESSE® Lidocaine). The line extension product combines the proven efficacy and safety of RADIESSE® with extra treatment comfort.

  • Product Profile

    RADIESSE® – instant volume lifting and contouring

    RADIESSE® is an injectable dermal filler that temporarily adds volume to help smooth moderate to severe facial wrinkles and gives an immediate lifting and firming effect of the skin. Once injected, RADIESSE® directly provides volume and lift needed to diminish the signs of ageing because of the calcium-based microspheres and gel that comprise the product. Both the gel and the microspheres are completely broken down by the body over time.

    RADIESSE® – a collagen stimulator 1,2,3

    The unique formulation of RADIESSE® stimulates the production of new collagen, which results in increased volume that may last a year or more in many patients*. Thanks to this method of wrinkle correction, RADIESSE® is more and more becoming the favourite injectable filler of many patients and medical professionals.

    * Individual results are dependent on age, skin type, indications, lifestyle, metabolism and, of course, the area treated.

  • Mode of Action

    RADIESSE® – how it works1,2,3

    Once injected, RADIESSE® provides immediate volume and correction but also continues to work by stimulating the skin to produce its own natural collagen. Over time, the gel is absorbed and the body metabolizes the CaHA-microspheres, leaving behind only the skin's natural collagen.

    1. Effect

    Once injected, RADIESSE® shows an immediate one-to-one correction and lifting effect. It can instantly soften your smile lines, replace lost volume in your cheeks, or contour your jawline.

    RADIESSE® Lidocaine significantly reduces pain during treatment and throughout the first hour after treatment.4

    2. Effect

    Over the following weeks, RADIESSE® microspheres stimulate the skin to produce new collagen for a soft, natural look.

    Collagen net

    Newly formed collagen surrounds the microspheres. The microspheres are eventually metabolised by the body's normal processes.

    3. Effect

    The new collagen provides a long-term effect that may last for a year or more in many patients.*
