Radiesse is a collagen-stimulating filler, who is well known for its effectiveness in smoothing wrinkles, fine lines, and facial contouring.
What highlights Radiesse from other fillers is that besides the results, it achieves something much more important – significantly boosts skin regeneration and gives a visible lifting effect.
For more than 10 years the top product of Merz Aesthetics – the world’s leading manufacturer, has proven to be one of the safest solutions for correcting mid-deep and deep wrinkles, loss of volume, face lifting, neck smoothing, rejuvenation of hands and treatment of acne scars.
The amazing qualities of the Radiesse are due to its calcium-containing microspheres, which once penetrated into the skin, provoke the cells to form collagen.
These natural beautification processes after injecting Radiesse last for up to 18 months.
Radiesse procedures are particularly suited for women with thick skin and for men who are looking for as natural as possible results because unlike most hyaluronic fillers no excess volume is injected into the skin.
