Why choose Radiesse?

Radiesse was first introduced as a ground-breaking solution for soft tissue augmentation. Its active component, calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA), is a substance naturally found in human bones, making it highly biocompatible and minimising the risk of allergic reactions. This filler works by providing a scaffold that supports collagen synthesis, with the CaHA microspheres eventually being absorbed by the body, leaving behind new connective tissue.

Frequently Asked Questions about Radiesse

How long do results from Radiesse last?

Results can last between 12 to 18 months, varying by individual metabolism, treatment area, and lifestyle factors.

Is the injection procedure painful?
