Radiesse Dermal Filler is made of calcium-based microspheres, the same component of bones and teeth. The company that makes Radiesse, Bioform, says the filler stimulates the body to produce new collagen, which makes it last longer and reduces the need for touch-ups. Dr. Tehrani likes to use it for an “injection nose job,” where the filler is inserted above the bone in the nose in order to smooth its contours. Dr. Ostad likes to use it on people with jowls, to plump them up and push them back.
RADIESSE and RADIESSE (+) are dermal fillers that are used for smoothing moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds (the creases that extend from the corner of your nose to the corner of your mouth). RADIESSE is also used for correcting volume loss in the back of the hands
