What is Collagen?
Collagen is what gives volume, flexibility and strength to healthy, young skin. As a part of the aging process, your own natural collagen breaks down, diminishing facial volume and elasticity. This loss of elasticity and volume results in wrinkles, facial lines and skin laxity – all of which rob your skin of its youthful, fresh appearance.
How Does Radiesse Treat Wrinkles?
Ideal wrinkle reduction is achieved by replenishing your skin’s lost volume. Upon injection, RADIESSE® Volumizing Filler immediately provides the volume and lift needed to diminish the signs of aging because of the calcium-based microspheres and gel that comprise the product. But what’s unique about RADIESSE Volumizing Filler is that it acts as a scaffold under the skin, providing structure and stimulating your own natural collagen to grow. This process continues for several months, which extends the initial effect of RADIESSE Volumizing Filler.
Candidates for Radiesse
Radiesse is ideal in people who have moderate aging, look tired and sunken.
It can also be used for hand rejuvenation. As we age, the skin on our hands thins and gets crinkly. Our veins show more and brown spots begin to appear. Even out tendons become very prominent. Radiesse can help make the hands look fuller, younger and diminish the appearance of bulging veins and tendons.
How Long Does Radiesse Last?
The result is both immediate and long lasting. The natural results are clinically proven to last a year or more in many patients, which is why more and more cosmetic surgeons, dermatologists, and other medical professionals are choosing RADIESSE Volumizing Filler to achieve long-lasting facial rejuvenation.
