what is radiesse Radiesse is an injectable filler (formerly known as Radiance) made of calcium-based microspheres used for wrinkle reduction. At Cosmetic Laser Dermatology, our dermatologists are world-renowned injectors of San Diego dermal fillers with an unparalleled level of expertise.

When we are young our skin contains natural collagen.  It’s this natural collagen that makes young skin strong, flexible and full of natural volume. However, as we age, collagen breaks down, resulting in less facial elasticity and volume. Our expert injections immediately provide volume and lift back to your face. The filler works by stimulating your body’s own collagen production for long-lasting correction and smoothing.

What is Radiesse used for?

This innovative filler adds back lost volume by supplying your skin with the materials it needs to naturally produce collagen again.  When your skin can naturally produce collagen, volume and elasticity come back and you begin to “look younger”! The benefits include:

  • Immediate results. Once injected, wrinkle correction occurs immediately.
  • Collagenesis, or the production of new collagen.
  • Has been clinically proven to last up to a year in some patients.
  • Comes mixed with lidocaine (a numbing agent) to make the injections less painful.
