Unlike hyaluronic acid (HA)–based filling materials, Radiesse works by stimulating your body to make collagen, the protein that plumps skin and keeps it smooth. The filler is made up of microspheres of calcium hydroxyapatite (CaHA), a substance also found in bones, that are suspended in a gel.
Radiesse can be hyper-diluted and used as a skin rejuvenator. Recent innovations in treatment show that when Radiesse is hyper-diluted (mixed with saline and lidocaine to thin it out) and injected superficially under aging skin, it acts as a bio-stimulating agent.
The skin rejuvenating effects from this treatment are pronounced and visible, with collagen and elastin production starting as early as 4 weeks after injection. This results in long term skin tightening with progressive natural dermal thickening. This means that fine lines, crepiness, and skin laxity are reduced. The tone, elasticity and pliability of skin is markedly improved.
One to three treatment sessions one month apart may be needed in the first year to achieve optimal aesthetic effects with maintenance of one treatment every 12 – 18 months. Areas that can be treated: Upper inner arms, neck, Décolletage, mid and lower face, knees.
