What is


Radiesse, also known as Radiesse+ (with Lidocaine), is a facial filler made with calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres. When injected, it instantly adds volume to the face and smooths lines and wrinkles. The body eventually absorbs the microspheres, leaving behind fibroblasts and natural collagen fibers. Radiesse is unique in that it not only provides an immediate smoothing effect but also stimulates natural collagen production for a beautiful, fresh result. Unlike many other fillers, Radiesse can last up to a year or more.

After RADIESSE injection, collagen production slowly increases, and wrinkles, fine lines, and folds start to smooth out. In addition to the rapid volume addition and filling outcomes, you will continue to observe skin texture changes for several months. The advantages of Radiesse in the hyper dilute form are immense in anti-aging.


How does


This filler is specially formulated to work for a longer period of time. The body naturally absorbs the product’s gel over time, and the CaHA stimulates the production of natural collagen. Nothing looks more natural than skin that is firm, soft, and plumped with collagen, providing hydration and structure. Once integrated into the soft tissue, CaHA particles in Radiesse form a scaffold that stimulates fibroblasts to produce collagen and elastin. In addition, it has a volumizing impact on the midface and cheeks. The high density of collagen and elastin provides long-term structural support, stimulating the body’s own natural processes to promote renewed skin structure and contours.

What does


Our clients may be surprised at the variety of treatments that Radiesse can provide. It can be used to treat the following:

  • Marionette lines – If left untreated, these lines can cause wrinkles around the mouth, making you look unhappy or sad.

  • Chin Wrinkles – Over time, wrinkles form in a horizontal line that resembles an upside-down smile, and a crease develops in the chin area.

  • Smile lines – As we age, lines tend to appear around the eyes and the sides of the mouth, which can make the smile look aged and noticeable. These lines are known as “corners of the mouth lines” and are typically visible below the mouth. They can deepen the marionette lines and the patient gives a frowning or angry look.

  • Pre-jowl folds – wrinkles on the sides of the chin can give an aging appearance around the jawbone.

  • Back of the hands – These wrinkles can bring an aging image to your hands, which are sensitive and prone to wrinkles.

  • Sunken temples – One of the most visible signs of aging can be sunken temples, which can lead to a less youthful and full appearance. Restoring the volume to the temples can help create a more youthful look.

Our medical professionals are highly skilled in utilizing Radiesse, a cutting-edge treatment that can replenish lost skin volume and stimulate self-collagen production to rejuvenate your appearance.
