Contains smooth and synthetic microspheres of Calcium Hydroxylapatite
A dermal filler that stimulates collagen growth within the skin. RADIESSE®, also called Radiance FN, is a clear, injectable dermal filler gel. Its main ingredient is calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres that are smooth and synthetic. Calcium and phosphate ions occur naturally in human tissue, and similar ions are chemically bonded to make the microspheres in this cosmetic filler. These microspheres are suspended in a gel carrier that is made of sodiumcarboxymethylcellulose, glycerin, and purified water, making up about seventy percent the solution.
Highly trusted by doctors around the world to correct wrinkles
RADIESSE® has been around as a brand for more than a decade and doctors have used it in more than five million procedures. Doctors have helped patients with mature skin and with facial fat loss from HIV or other disease restore their skin to its previous appearance.
You Can target various areas
You can use it to correct:
- the look of facial depressions and blemishes like acne scars
- marionette lines or smile lines at the corners of the mouth
- radial lip lines above the upper lip
- nasolabial folds between the nose and mouth
- other moderate to deep facial wrinkles and creases
You can use this cosmetic filler to plump up shallow cheeks caused by loss of fat, correct indentations and unevenness on the nose and chin, contour the jaw or other areas, and reduce the look of bones and veins in mature hands.
In two stages. In the first stage, the gel immediately restores some volume to wrinkles or other areas, filling out the skin. Over the next few months, the calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres form a kind of scaffold, giving the body a place to grow new collagen through neocollagenesis. As the gel and the microspheres gradually break down, your patient is left with the collagen structure within their skin. This collagen supports the skin and adds strength and elasticity, smoothing the look of wrinkles and creases or filling out areas of the face that have experienced fat loss from aging or illness.
Side effects are minor and rare when applied properly
Could include common injection-related reactions, like pain, tenderness, itching, discoloration, and swelling at the injection site, and some lumpiness can form. Contraindications include injection on top of permanent injectable implants, use in pregnant or lactating women, and use in patients with an existing infection. This filler does not contain animal or human ingredients, and because it is biocompatible, it is unlikely to cause an allergic reaction. The solution is resorbable, leaving only your patient’s natural collagen.
Produces immediate and long lasting results
The gel immediately adds some volume to the skin tissue, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and restoring contour to facial features. However, the solution also keeps working over the next few months, helping collagen to grow and restoring structure, strength, and elasticity to skin. This product can help smooth the look of wrinkles and fill out facial features for up to about two years.
