WHAT IS RADIESSE?
Radiesse is a safe, FDA-approved dermal filler that provides immediate and long-lasting results. It has several features that set it apart from other fillers. Unlike dermal fillers that contain hyaluronic acid, Radiesse is a calcium-based filler containing calcium hydroxylapatite. These calcium-based microspheres are suspended in a water-based gel. Radiesse provides immediate volume rejuvenation but also stimulates the body to produce new collagen to restore a healthy and natural look. The unique properties of Radiesse allow for several advantages: it uses your own body’s natural processes to produce collagen, and it lasts longer, up to 2 years. Compare this to only about 6 to 12 months for hyaluronic acid fillers.
How Does Radiesse Work?
Radiesse is an injectable filler made of smooth calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres suspended in a gel. As Radiesse is injected, it provides an immediate and visible correction to volume loss. Over time, a process of neocollagenesis begins, stimulating the gradual growth of one’s own collagen. Radiesse creates structural scaffolding by stimulating collagen production that can last a year or longer after just one injection. In clinical trials, results lasted 12 to 18 months.
What are the Applications of Radiesse?
Radiesse filler is injected into the skin through a minimally invasive procedure to provide the immediate and longer-lasting correction. Radiesse is FDA approved for the correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as the nasolabial folds. It is also indicated for hand rejuvenation for volume loss on the back of the hands. However, there are new and exciting ways Radiesse is being used, like for cellulite correction in the buttock and rejuvenation of the decolloté region. Radiesse can also be used on the jawline to provide a definition or a lifting effect for the rest of the face.
Why Radiesse Over Other Fillers?
Because of the way in which Radiesse works, the effects are longer lasting than hyaluronic acid fillers. And the process of collagen formation is a more natural way to rejuvenate volume-depleted areas. The high viscosity of Radiesse also means it does not spread into the surrounding tissues. Rather, it stays where it’s placed and intended to be. A higher elasticity means a better lifting capacity than other dermal fillers.
