Radiesse

Radiesse Treatments in Rejuve NYC – a New York Skin Care Center

What is Radiesse?

Radiesse is a relatively new dermal filler in cosmetic surgery that does not contain collagen. It is made of tiny spherical particles made of calcium hydroxyapatite that are suspended in a gel-like solution. The chemical, hydroxyapatite, is a naturally occurring substance in the body that is an integral part of bone, collagen and other soft tissue structured. Hydroxyapatite lends support and strength to the tissues.

Because Radiesse does not contain collagen, patients do not have to undergo any type of allergy test prior to the injections. Radiesse once injected is quite stable and not broken down by the body’s enzymes. Hence, its cosmetic benefits are long lasting. Also of importance is that Radiesse is not derived from any animal product. Radiesse was approved by the FDA several years ago as a dermal filler and is one of the most frequently used injectable fillers in dentistry, cosmetic surgery, and orthopedics.

How does Radiesse work?

Once the injections are complete, Radiesse initially acts as a dermal filler and enhances the skin by reducing wrinkles and fine lines. After about 8-12 weeks, the calcium microspheres then start to stimulate production of collagen, which further results in plumping of skin and extends the half-life of the product.

Can Radiesse be combined with other cosmetic procedures?
