Radiesse® is a new generation injectable dermal filler available from our board-certified plastic surgeon here at the Santa Barbara Plastic Surgery Center. Radiesse® is made of very tiny, smooth calcium hydroxylapetite (CaHA) microspheres. The microspheres (particles) form a scaffold through which your body’s own collagen grows, and this produces the desired long-term effect. The results are immediate and often last an average of 1 to 1.5 years. These advantages make Radiesse® an excellent and affordable choice for facial shaping and contouring.
For the first three months after injection, Radiesse® initially performs as a filler substance by plumping up the skin. Then, due to its collagen-generating properties, Radiesse® actually stimulates new tissue development for extended correction for up to 12 to 24 months.
