Radiesse dermal filler is a non-toxic, non-allergic compound composed of calcium-based microspheres suspended in a water-based gel. It is injected into the skin via a minimally invasive surgical procedure. Radiesse reduces the appearance of wrinkles and skin folds around the mouth and nose and may be effective at filling certain forms of scarring.
Optimum candidates for Radiesse treatments are typically between 35 and 60 years of age. The treatment typically provides up to 80% improvement immediately after treatment, and because this treatment is temporary, it requires that patients repeat treatment intermittently in order to maintain the maximum results.
