Radiesse

Radiesse™ differs from RESTYLANE® in its basic composition. Rather than using hyaluronic acid, Radiesse™ behaves like a semi-solid soft tissue implant. The principle component of Radiesse™ is synthetic calcium hydroxylapatite, a biomaterial with more than twenty years of use in other surgical specialties. Once injected, the calcium hydroxylapatite remains stable long after its gel carrier is reabsorbed, resulting in long-term restoration and augmentation of the soft tissue.

Radiesse™ has considerably longer-lasting results than hyaluronic acid-based fillers, with results typically lasting over a year. Radiesse™ is most suitable for deeper soft tissue augmentation in the nasolabial folds, cheeks, and the frown lines of the forehead. It is often used in combination with a "softer" filler such as RESTYLANE® or Collagen to combine long-lasting deeper tissue augmentation with a smooth surface.
