Consistency and active ingredients in Radiesse:
Radiesse has a gel-like formula that is made up of calcium hydroxyapatite – a popular component in medical cosmetics for years, water and glycerin, and has the ability to transform into collagen. The functionality of the special ingredient – sodium carboxymethylcellulose, is to protect the injection site, allowing the skin tissue to recover. This does not interrupt the active action of the gel.
Available in two sterile syringe sizes, without latex, 0.8 ml and 1.5 ml.
