Radiesse Volumizing Filler is an injectable implant composed of synthetically produced smooth calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres suspended in a carboxymethylcellulose gel carrier. Radiesse is approximately 30% CaHA and 70% gel carrier by volume.
Radiesse Volumizing Filler is injected into the skin in a minimally invasive procedure. Injection of the product provides an immediate correction, filling, of the facial wrinkle. Replenishing lost volume and providing lift is key to diminishing the appearance of facial wrinkles and folds. There is no skin sensitivity testing or reconstitution required.
Over time, the gel is absorbed and fibroblasts appear. The process of neocollagenesis begins, stimulating the gradual growth of the patient’s own collagen. The collagen that forms results in extended correction and increased patient satisfaction. Results are clinically proven to last a year or more in many patients. The cosmetic results are soft and natural-looking, and feel like the patient’s own tissue. The results are long-lasting, but not permanent. The CaHA microspheres naturally degrade to calcium and phosphate ions, which are metabolized by the body’s normal processes.
There are two physical characteristics that dictate the ability of a filler to provide volume and lift- Viscosity and Elasticity. Viscosity measures the ability of a filler to withstand force that is applied to it. Radiesse was designed with a high degree of viscosity so that it remains in position where it is injected and will not spread into the surrounding tissue. It allows the injector to visualize the final result immediately after injection. Elasticity measures the ability of a filler to push back against a force that is applied to it. Radiesse was designed with a high degree of elasticity so that it is able to counteract forces that cause an aged look, like gravity or skin laxity. It provides a lift.
Radiesse Volumizing Filler is ideal for deep indications and is specifically injected into the following planes:
•Subdermal, for correcting moderate to severe wrinkles and folds.
•Supraperiosteal, for volumizing an area for an underlying bony structure such as the prejowl sulcus.
