Radiesse is different to hyaluronic acid fillers like Juvederm and Restylane. Radiesse is made of calcium hydroxyapatite microspheres suspended in a liquid gel.
How Radiesse Works
Radiesse is both a filler and a volumizer. A unique characteristic of Radiesse is continued benefits through stimulating the body to produce its own collagen.
As the face ages, the youthful contours of the face lose definition and sagging of skin and underlying soft tissues occur. Fat pads that contribute to the “apple cheek look of youth” thin and break. The result is a tired and even haggard appearance. Sunken cheeks, jowls, and deep folds from the nose to the mouth and the mouth to the jawline develop.
Smile lines (nasolabial folds), marionette folds, jowls of the jawline create hollows in front and behind the jowls, downward displacement of the corners of the mouth and deflation of the midface with sagging of the skin produce a tired, angry, sad and aged look. Sagging skin is instantly lifted by restoring volume to targeted key areas of the face. Treating these areas provides a subtle enhancement that softens and rejuvenates the face.
Who can benefit from Radiesse
Radiesse is of benefit in reversing these visible signs of aging. Men and women from 35 years old and well into their eighties often seek a minimally invasive procedure such as ‘Radiesse” as a remedy.
What to expect from Radiesse
Immediate filling and volume correction occurs following treatment so patients should see instant improvement. Minimal discomfort is associated with the procedure and the benefits last 9 to 12 months. Bruising may occur, is easily camouflaged with makeup and resolves within a short period of time.
