RADIESSE® is a dermal filter, but with an extraordinary effect on the treated area. In the first moment after injection it creates volume and contours. Subsequently, the hydroxyapatite begins to work and create a scaffold around which the skin accumulates collagen and elastin that build the new tissue. RADIESSE® is an indispensable assistant to restore structural losses in the skin, to tighten and smooth fine lines and wrinkles on the face, neck and décolleté. It is also used to tighten, smooth and correct volume loss in the skin on the upper arms.
Your skin changes over time due to a decrease in collagen and elastin content, which contribute to skin strength and elasticity.

The reduced amount of collagen and elastin can lead to wrinkling and sagging of the facial skin, which are the first signs of skin aging
