Radiesse was approved by the FDA as a facial filler at the end of 2006. This new use of hyperdiluted Radiesse is technically “off label,” but because of the dilution, there isn’t any risk of reaction. There isn’t any downtime, and because uses a cannula there typically is little to no bruising. Calcium hydroxyapatite, which is the mechanism by which Radiesse triggers collagen production, is a naturally occurring form of the mineral calcium apatite. It makes up most of our bone structure, builds tooth enamel, and exists in tiny amounts in the brain. It isn’t a foreign, manufactured substance, and it has proven to be safe.
To create the hyperdiluted material, Radiesse is combined with a simple saline solution and Lidocaine. Then injects the solution with a cannula. This enables him to place the hyperdilute Radiesse into thinner areas where the skin is crepe-like and saggy. These injections are quick, 30-minute in-office treatments.
