What is Radiesse?

Radiesse is an injectable treatment used to contour the body. It is also a collagen biostimulator, meaning that it facilitates the production of collagen and elastin in the body, providing long-lasting, natural results.

It's comprised of calcium-based microspheres (calcium hydroxylapatite) suspended in a water-based gel. The microspheres eventually break down and are absorbed by your body, but the gel helps to add volume to your skin immediately. It is used to treat fine lines and wrinkles in many areas of the body, as well as add volume to areas with sunken or sagging skin. The result is rejuvenated skin that looks firm and natural, without wrinkles and other blemishes.

In recent years, the use of Radiesse in a hyperdiluted form has increased. In this form, it is a biostimulatory agent, rather than a volumizing filler, and it improves skin quality, texture, tone and firmness. It can be used in the face, neck, décolletage and other areas of the body. This technique was first used in Europe, yet it’s now being used more and more in the U.S.

What is Hyperdiluted Radiesse?

Hyperdiluted Radiesse is simply Radiesse that has been diluted or thinned out with a mixture of sterile saline solution and lidocaine. This makes it an easily spreadable biostimulator capable of remodeling skin over a larger area.

When this diluted mixture is injected into areas of collagen loss, it triggers the body to produce new collagen and elastin. The result is a skin rejuvenating treatment with pronounced and visible smoother, firmer, younger-looking skin.

The benefits of this treatment are skin tightening and thickening, reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and crepiness. It can also reduce the pigment from sun damage. Overall, skin tone, texture and elasticity are markedly improved.

  • Neck, filling creases such as “necklace lines.”

  • Knees, reducing wrinkles and any sagging skin.
  • Arms, adding volume to loose or sagging skin and addressing wrinkles
