What is Radiesse®?
Did you know that besides hyaluronic fillers, there are also non-hyaluronic ones? Radiesse® is just that. It is at its core calcium hydroxyapatite (CaHA) - biological material that has been used for over twenty years in orthopedics, dentistry and others. It is the main mineral component of bones and teeth, which makes it safe, biocompatible, biodegradable, ie. this is a natural product. These calcium hydroxyapatite microspheres are located in a carrier gel.
The product has a unique method of action. After its application, an immediate effect is observed due to the gel carrier consisting of sterile water, glycerin and sodium carboxymethyl cellulose. What is more impressive is what happens next to the calcium hydroxyapatite particles. They lead to powerful stimulation of fibroblast cells and the production of new collagen, and this effect lasts 12-18 months. A new, dense collagen network is formed, which strengthens and rejuvenates the skin. Gradually, CaHA microspheres are broken down into calcium and phosphate ions, which are eliminated from the body.
Radies is completely safe. It has been subjected to numerous clinical trials and has been proven effective by the world's health institutions. He has a CE certificate for application in the European Union since 2003. and was approved for use in the United States by the FDA in 2006.

What does Dr. Konstantin Stavrov say about Radiesse?
I have been using Radies in my practice for several years. It is an integral part of my arsenal of anti-aging ideas. What distinguishes it from hyaluronic fillers is the ability to achieve a lifting effect without creating unnecessary and unnecessary volume. This makes it an ideal option for contouring the lower jaw and emphasizing the mandibular angle, tightening the skin in the face and neck, non-surgical lifting of the middle and lower facial floor. There are no two opinions that this product has no analogue on the market and fully justifies its price, and my patients are more than satisfied.
How does the procedure work?
The procedure is performed only by highly qualified doctors. After a comprehensive consultation, the individual wishes and needs of each patient are discussed. Depending on the area of application, the product can be injected with a thin needle or a cannula. The area is pre-anesthetized with cream or wired anesthesia. In addition, the product is diluted with a small amount of lidocaine, which makes the intervention painless. Side effects that occur immediately after the procedure include redness, mild swelling, itching at the injection site, but these changes are transient and do not impair the social activities of patients. The duration of the manipulation itself is between 30-60 minutes, and the effect of it lasts between 12-18 months.
