This injectable uses a compound to trigger the body into producing its own collagen, a naturally-occurring protein in human skin that acts as the building block of our skin. Collagen diminishes with age, and assault from smoking, sun exposure and pollution. Radiesse rebuilds the collagen gradually, resulting in reduced nasolabial folds and marionette lines, and enhancing fullness to cheeks and other facial contours. Radiesse lasts up to 18 months.
