RADIESSE® is made of tiny calcium-based microspheres suspended in a water-based gel. The calcium 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.
Radiesse® is the only filler that is FDA approved for injection in the face and the hands. Our hands are an important part of the way we communicate and present ourselves. Our hands also give away our age.
