What is Radiesse®?
Radiesse® is a safe skin filler in common use today. It’s a synthetic filler unlike the hyaluronic acid fillers which are biologic. Radiesse® is composed of very tiny, smooth calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres in a gel carrier. Calcium hydroxylapatite is biocompatible with a very low rate of allergic reactions; it has been used extensively as an implant in other areas of medicine and is the primary mineral component of our teeth and bones. Radiesse® is a temporary filler like Restylane® and Juvederm®.
