What is Radiesse?
Radiesse is a sterile, latex-free, non-pyrogenic,
semi-solid, cohesive subdermal implant. The principle durable component
of Radiesse is synthetic calcium hydroxylapatite, a biomaterial with
over twenty years of use in orthopedics, neurosurgery, dentistry,
otolaryngology and ophthalmology.
Important information about Radiesse
Calcium hydroxylapatite is the primary mineral constituent
of bone and teeth. The semi-solid nature of Radiesse is created by
suspending calcium hydroxylapatite in a gel carrier that consists
primarily of water (sterile water for injection) and glycerin. The gel
structure is formed by the addition of a small amount of sodium
carboxymethylcellulose. The gel is dissipated in vivo and replaced with
collagen and other soft tissue ingrowth, while the calcium
hydroxylapatite remains at the site of injection to form a scaffold for
the new tissue formation. The result is intended to be long-term soft
