Healthy young skin contains collagen that gives it volume, flexibility and strength. As part of the ageing process, your own natural collagen breaks down, diminishing facial volume. This loss of elasticity and volume results in wrinkles, facial lines and skin laxity that rob your skin of its youthful appearance.
RADIESSE® is a unique formulation of dermal filler that stimulates collagenesis - the production of new collagen - which results in increased volume for natural-looking wrinkle correction that may last a year or more in many patients.
Treatment with RADIESSE®is simple, quick, comfortable and convenient, with immediately visible results that last.
How does it work?
- RADIESSE® Volumizing Filler is comprised of Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres suspended in an aqueous gel carrier.
- Once injected, it provides immediate volume and
correction but continues to work by stimulating the body to produce
its own natural collagen.
- Over time, the gel is absorbed and the body
metabolizes the CaHA microspheres leaving behind only your own
Indications for use
What can I expect?
Following an initial consultation and if suitable for treatment, a medical questionnaire and consent is obtained and pre and post procedure photographs are taken of the areas to be treated. The area is cleansed and a local anaesthetic cream is applied to the skin and allowed to take effect. Radiesse is mixed with lidocaine, an anaesthetic agent, to ensure a more comfortable procedure. This is relatively painless and the whole procedure takes approximately one hour after which you can return to work or other activities.
