How long does Radiesse last?
The effects of Radiesse last 12 to 18 months, Radiesse help stimulate collagen production. This is a significantly long time to benefit from the anti-aging effects of Radiesse to other non-animal dermal filler treatments.
How does Radiesse work?
Radiesse consists of calcium hydroxyapatite (CaHA), approximately 30% CaHA and 70% gel carrier by volume… CaHA is made up of ions of phosphate and calcium, which occur naturally in the human body.
The injectable gel initially does all the work of filling in the volume you want. As time goes on, though, the CaHA stimulates your naturally-occurring collagen, allowing your skin to produce more of its filler. The hydrogen, oxygen, and carbon in the gel help to create a structure that mimics connective tissue.
Eventually, the CaHA absorbs back into your body, leaving your collagen in its place.
Radiesse is injected under the skin in a minimally invasive procedure. The injection of the product provides immediate and effective results.
