What Is Radiesse®?
Radiesse® is a dermal filler that is injected at key facial sites to smooth the skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Made from calcium hydroxyapatite, Radiesse® suspends this formulation into a water-based gel for injection.
What Is Calcium Hydroxyapatite?
Calcium hydroxyapatite, also referred to simply as hydroxyapatite, is a naturally occurring mineral that is found in the bones. When it is used in Radiesse®, the natural substance is ground into particles that are microscopic in size before being added to an injectable gel. Because it is natural, the substance is deemed as being non-toxic and safe. Its absorbability makes it a reliable cosmetic product, which has also been endorsed by the FDA.
How Does Radiesse® Work?
Radiesse® works by stimulating the production of collagen, which dwindles in supply over time. Collagen is the protein needed to keep the skin smooth and wrinkle-free. Radiesse® assists in rejuvenating the connective tissues and restoring elasticity. Therefore, the injectable has been proven to be helpful in lessening the look of wrinkles and smiles lines as well as depressions that develop around the nose and mouth.
What Does Treatment Entail?
Treatment, which takes only around 10-20 minutes, involves injecting the substance with a needle that is ultra-fine.
What Happens After a Treatment Session?
Patients can resume their daily routine after a treatment session. Sun exposure should be avoided, and patients are asked to use sunscreen.
How Long Do the Results Last?
Results from the treatment last up to a year.
