What is Radiesse?
Radiesse is a cosmetic filler made from calcium hydroxylapatite, a naturally occurring mineral in the body that is found in our bones. Like most fillers, Radiesse works to add back lost volume underneath the skin. In addition to replacing lost volume, Radiesse also stimulates the production of collagen within our bodies. Radiesse is used in Dr. Stephen Bracci’s Verve Medical Cosmetics Studio in New York City, New Jersey and Westchester for the Baselift(™) non-surgical facelift procedure.
How is Radiesse Used?
Radiesse is used to add back volume underneath the skin to treat nasolabial folds and to replenish the contours of the face in the jawline and the cheeks. By replicating the body’s naturally occurring minerals, Radiesse is able to provide a lifted, youthful appearance. Additionally, Radiesse is FDA-approved for the hands.
