Radiesse is made of calcium-based microspheres suspended in a water-based gel. The microspheres are similar to minerals found naturally in the body, so allergy testing is not required. Over time, the body absorbs the microspheres and gel, leaving behind only natural collagen.
Once injected, Radiesse plumps the skin to give it the appearance of a smoother surface. Over time, Radiesse works to stimulate the body’s natural collagen production. The body ultimately absorbs the product and leaves behind the natural collagen for long-lasting results.

Radiesse is injected under the skin during a quick procedure. It is also FDA-approved to mix with anesthetic, which means the procedure will be much more comfortable. In fact, in a clinical study, 90% of patients treated reported significant pain reduction when injected with Radiesse mixed with lidocaine anesthetic.
There is little to no downtime post Radiesse treatment.
Radiesse can be injected in the following locations:
