Calcium hydroxyapatite (brand name Radiesse) is similar to the material that makes up bone, but in a dense fluid that can be injected. It is very thick and maintains its shape and placement well, so it is often injected deep in areas where there is noticeable bone loss, such as around the chin. Radiesse dissolves after about 18 months, but does stimulate the body to make collagen, so perhaps 20% of the volume injected will be permanent. Radiesse cannot be dissolved, unlike the Hyaluronic acids (HA). Click here to learn more about Radiesse!
