Radiesse has a standard luer fitting and is packaged in a foil pouch. This injectable subdermal implant is completely biodegradable, non-pyrogenic, latex-free, cohesive, and semi-solid, and it has been steam sterilized. The Radiesse gel eventually dissipates and is replaced by soft tissue, leaving behind the calcium hydroxylapatite, giving the patient non-permanent yet long-term augmentation or restoration of their dermal structure.
The packaging content:
One 1.5 ml prefilled syringe
A set of traceability labels
Synthetic calcium hydroxylapatite suspended in a gel carrier (particle size range of 25-45 microns).
Radiesse 1.5 ml is the larger sized volume option of the Radiesse treatments available; as such is it particularly suited for treating more severe volume deficiencies and skin depressions. By far, the largest advantage Radiesse has over other dermal fillers is its longevity; patients have reported results that last up to a year, and in some cases up to 2 years.
