Rather than hyaluronic acid, Radiesse is made from calcium-based microspheres suspended in a water-based gel. Radiesse provides both immediate and extended results because it stimulates production of collagen and encourages tissue regeneration. It is most commonly used for the smoothing of nasolabial folds and marionette lines, for cheek augmentation, and to plump up sunken areas below the eyes.
Radiesse® is commonly used to treat nasolabial folds and marionette lines. It may also be used to augment the cheeks, chin and nose.
