Radiesse® (previously known as Radiance) is a type of injectable filler which is comprised of calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA). It is a biocompatible, non-toxic and non-allergenic filler. Radiesse® is commonly used to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles and folds occurring around the mouth and nose, such as the nasolabial folds and marionette lines. It may also be used to fill in some types of scars as well as to contour facial features like the chin, cheeks and jaw line.
Radiesse® is made up of a compound of calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres which are suspended in a carboxymethylcellulose gel. This filler produces an initial plumping of the skin during the first three months after injection which is then followed by extended correction as new tissue regenerates.
