Radiesse® or calcium hydroxyapatite

Radiesse® or calcium hydroxyapatite

It is a popular aesthetic medical procedure, or dermal injections, to improve the appearance of the face and reduce the signs of aging, promoting the synthesis of the skin's natural collagen.

Radiesse is a filler preparation or filler containing calcium hydroxyapatite microspheres that are biodegradable and improve facial contours.


Radiesse is used worldwide to improve facial contours as well as restore facial volume loss. It is especially suitable for areas of the face such as restoring cheek volume for contouring, accentuating the contour of the lower jaw, as well as in areas where intensive collagen stimulation is required (face, neck, hands, stomach, stretch mark correction).


The Radiesse procedure is usually quick and minimally invasive. Before the procedure, you could meet with an esthetician to discuss your goals and needs. The injections are given with a special needle, and the procedure usually takes about 30 minutes.


When Radiesse is injected into the skin, it provides a biphasic effect. First, it smoothes the skin, improving its appearance. Second, it promotes collagen production, helping to maintain facial volume and elasticity in the long term. Depending on the hyaluronic acid-based fillers, Radiesse does not attract water to the input area, so it does not create swelling in unwanted areas.


After the procedure, you may notice improvements immediately or within the next few days. The first expected results will appear after 3 weeks, as your natural collagen synthesis is stimulated.

What to expect?

Most patients tolerate the Radiesse procedure well, complications are few. During the course of the procedure, you will feel some discomfort, such as discomfort at the injection site, redness or swelling. This procedure is well tolerated, no additional anesthesia is required.

Duration of results

Radiesse lasts 12 to 18 months, but this can vary depending on the characteristics of the patient's body area and the extent of the procedure.

P.S.: Before any aesthetic procedure, it is important to consult a doctor to determine whether the procedure is suitable for you and to obtain more detailed information about the course of the procedure and possible consequences.
