As the years pass by, aging skin loses natural support structures that keep skin looking supple and youthful. Collagen and elastin diminish withing the skin and results in wrinkles and creases.
One of the most popular solutions for regaining and revitalizing the youthful look of skin is Radiesse, a wrinkle filler used to plump the skin. The volumizing filler works immediately and with fantastic results. Radiesse is truly unique in its ability to act as a sort of scaffold under the skin, adding volume and structure and over time, will naturally stimulate your body’s own collagen production. The results have been shown to last a year or more in most patients, making Radiesse both immediate and long-lasting.
The mechanisms of action for Radiesse are fairly simple. Radiesse is comprised of Calcium Hydroxylapatite microspheres suspended in an aqueous gel carrier solution. Once injected through a thin needle underneath the skin, it provides immediate volume and correction while simultaneously promoting the body’s own natural collagen production. Over time, the gel is absorbed and the body metabolizes the CaHA microspheres leaving behind nothing but your own collagen. Radiesse is FDA approved to be used in conjunction with lidocaine, an anesthetic, to significantly reduce pain or discomfort related to injection. Radiesse should not be used by anyone with an allergy to the ingredients, anyone who is pregnant or nursing, or anyone under 18 years of age.
Radiesse is the only commercially available dermal filler composed of natural calcium-based micro spheres. It also has a track record of lasting longer in most patients, sometimes longer than a year. In clinical studies, Radiesse patients were more satisfied with their results than patients treated with other hyaluronic acid injectable fillers, and 30 percent less Radiesse is needed for satisfactory results when compared to other fillers.
Wrinkle treatments with Radiesse Volumizing Filler are quick and hassle-free, with immediate results that are long lasting and natural.
