Similar to a substance found naturally in the body, Radiesse is a biocompatible, water-based gel suspension of calcium hydroxylapatite that plumps up wrinkles and restores facial volume. Once injected, it will generate the body’s natural ability to produce collagen, providing the skin with a youthful glow. Plentiful in youthful skin, collagen exists in the dermis as connective tissue, and it is what gives young skin its lively, supple look. During the aging process, existing collagen fibers break down, and the skin’s ability to make more collagen is diminished. This process results in loss of elasticity and firmness, so skin starts to wrinkle and sag.
Radiesse is an dermal filler that stimulates the production of collagen and is primarily used to treat a variety of deep facial folds, including the vertical glabellar lines (frown lines) that form between the eyebrows. It can reduce the nasolabial folds (smile lines), marionette lines, chin wrinkles, and more. It is also used to enhance sunken facial contours, including cheek and chin areas, and to fill depressions caused by scarring.*
Youthful, radiant skin.
The benefits of Radiesse are immediately noticeable. The skin will be lifted and smoothed, with improved shape and volume. In the coming weeks, as Radiesse encourages the body’s production of Collagen, s the appearance will continue to improve. The benefits from Radiesse generally last between 18-24 months. To maintain a youthful appearance, a repeat treatment can be performed as the results begin to fade.
