RADIESSE Volumizing Filler has the unique ability to both immediately restore lost volume and stimulate your body to produce its own natural collagen for long-lasting results
How does it work?
Once injected, RADIESSE Volumizing Filler does exactly as it says: it fills or replenishes volume lost over time for a more refreshed looking you.

Not only does RADIESSE Volumizing Filler provide immediate correction, the natural, beautiful results may last a year or more in many patients

RADIESSE Volumizing Filler is FDA approved to mix with lidocaine (an anesthetic). That means you can experience a more comfortable wrinkle treatment. In fact, in a clinical study, using RADIESSE Volumizing Filler mixed with lidocaine significantly reduced pain in 90% of patients treated
What is it made of?
RADIESSE Volumizing Filler is made of tiny calcium-based microspheres which are suspended in a natural, water-based gel.
