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. The calcium hydroxylapatite in Radiesse is a synthetic form of the same material naturally occurring in your bones. Once injected, Radiesse 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 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. When the Radiesse is eventually processed out of your body, the supportive collagen remains.
Typical treatment areas for Radiesse are:
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.
