How Radiesse Is Made

Radiesse consists of calcium based microspheres that form a scaffold to support and stimulate growth of the body's own collagen. Over time, the calcium-based fillers breakdown and are safely reabsorbed by the body, without the risks of a permanent implant.

How Radiesse Is Made

The Radiesse injection solution is made of tiny microspheres of calcium hydroxyapatite. Although calcium hydroxyapatite is naturally found in our teeth and bones, a synthetic version is used for the Radiesse injection. The calcium hydroxyapatite is combined into a water based gel medium to produce a white solution with a creamy texture

Radiesse manufacturing

+1

Radiesse is a volumizing filler made by Merz Aesthetics. Like all fillers and injectables, Radiesse is manufactured in a laboratory. The injectables are made by scientists in large batchs/lots and then put into syringes and then into labeled packages for distribution. Because many of the companies that make fillers are worldwide, some fillers are made in a single laboratory and others have pieces that are made in different labs and then put together in one laboratory and sent from there. For specifics on how Merz manufacturers, you can contact them to see if they can disclose that to you; I'm unsure if they will. But all injectables have a lot and batch number for identification purposes.
