What is Radiesse®?
Healthy young skin contains collagen that gives it volume, elasticity and strength. As part of the ageing process, your own natural collagen gradually breaks down. This loss of elasticity and volume results in wrinkles, facial lines and skin laxity, reducing the youthful appearance of your face.
Radiesse® is an injectable dermal filler that temporarily adds volume to help smooth moderate to severe facial wrinkles and gives an immediate lifting and firming effect on the skin. Once injected, Radiesse® directly provides volume and lift needed to diminish the signs of ageing because of the calcium-based microspheres and gel that comprise the product. Both the gel and the microspheres are completely broken down by the body over time.
In addition to an immediate filling effect, the high-quality ingredients of Radiesse® stimulate the skin’s natural collagen synthesis. Thanks to the collagen-inducing effect of Radiesse®, the skin regains its youthful tightness and elasticity – your natural beauty blooms again.
How does Radiesse® work?
Radiesse® is composed of small calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres suspended in a soft gel matrix. Radiesse® is gently injected by your physician into the skin, usually in small amounts with a very fine needle. For additional treatment comfort, the doctor may apply a local anaesthetic to treated areas. This injection provides an immediate and visible effect. Additionally, Radiesse® stimulates your skin’s own regeneration abilities – new collagen is produced over the following weeks and months, making your skin stronger and more elastic. Radiesse® treatment results are long-lasting, but not permanent. Many patients come back to repeat treatments because they are very happy with them. 90% of men and women are satisfied with the treatment results of Radiesse®.
Once injected, Radiesse® provides immediate volume and correction but also continues to work by stimulating the skin to produce its own natural collagen. Over time, the gel is absorbed and the body metabolises the CaHA microspheres, leaving behind only the skin’s natural collagen.
