Just about everybody has had one of those moments when they look at themselves in the mirror and wish that they could just take an eraser and remove some of the imperfections that they see. It’s natural. As we get older, we watch as our face starts to change. Thankfully, with products like Radiesse®, you are able to remove some of the imperfections that plague your face as you get older.
What is Radiesse®?
Radiesse® is a dermal filler. In the hands of our trained cosmetic professional, it can add temporary volume to your face, which helps to smooth out some of the wrinkles and folds that are left behind as a result of facial volume loss.
Radiesse® is made from a collection of miniature, calcium-based microspheres. These spheres sit in a gel that is water-based. What makes the product unique is the fact that the microspheres closely resemble some of the minerals that are naturally found in your body. For this reason, it is almost impossible to have an allergic reaction to this product.
Over time, your body will absorb the microspheres as well as the water-based gel. You will be left with the natural collagen your body has produced as a result of the dermal filler treatment.
How Does It Work?
Similar to other dermal fillers, once Radiesse® is skillfully injected into the treatment area, it plumps up the appearance of your skin, giving you a smoother face. At the same time, the product is designed to stimulate your body’s natural collagen production. This product has been approved by the FDA to be used in certain areas to correct wrinkles.
What Makes Radiesse® So Special?
Many dermal fillers have hyaluronic acid or collagen as their base. At this point in time, this product is the only one that has been approved by the FDA that is composed of a calcium-based microsphere system. It is designed to encourage your body to produce its own collagen, and the results that it produces have been shown to last for up to a year or longer for some patients.
