Radiesse® is comprised of Calcium Hydroxylapatite microspheres suspended in an aqueous gel carrier. At the time of injection, Radiesse® provides immediate volume by plumping the soft tissue but also continues to work by stimulating the body to produce its own natural collagen. The results have been shown to last a year or longer.
Some facial lines and wrinkles form as a result of muscle activity, not loss of volume. If you have these types of wrinkles, Dr. Sato might recommend BOTOX® Cosmetic or Dysport® injections in conjunction with the dermal filler.
