It’s the first and only FDA-approved CaHA portfolio that provides immediate contouring plus stimulation of collagen and elastin production.
Two important components in how the skin changes over time are collagen and elastin, because they help keep facial lines and wrinkles at bay. Collagen and elastin both contribute to the skin’s strength and elasticity. Unfortunately, aging and environmental factors (think sun damage) make it harder for your body to produce these components. Reduced amounts of collagen and elastin can cause facial skin to wrinkle and sag, stealing from your youthful appearance.
Radiesse is a dermal filler that is designed to add volume and lift to the skin, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. This treatment involves injecting a synthetic form of calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) into the skin, which helps to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, two essential proteins that help to keep the skin firm and youthful.
As the CaHA particles are absorbed by the body, they stimulate the growth of new collagen fibers, creating a long-lasting volumizing effect. Radiesse can be used to treat a range of concerns, including nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and other facial wrinkles and creases.
Radiesse is designed to provide a natural-looking and long-lasting result, with effects lasting up to 18 months or more. It's also ideal for patients who may require more significant volume restoration than can be achieved with hyaluronic acid fillers alone.
