Radiesse has two unique ingredients that includes a gel and calcium hydroxylapatitie (caHA) microspheres. The gel component gives the immediate filling effect after the procedure. It’s then that the calcium (caHA) microspheres go to work.
They stimulate your skin cells to start making new collagen. This goes on for months after the procedure and produces the long lasting results of Radiesse. No other filler does this!
The two main components of Radiesse have different lifespans. The gel component provides immediate filling and lasts for several months. The body then breaks down the gel. However, this has allowed the calcium microsphere component to begin working to stimulate collagen production. Since your body is doing the work, Radiesse has been shown to work anywhere from 12-18 months. Of course, another Radiesse treatment can make Radiesse last even longer.
Radiesse offers more than the traditional hyaluronic acid fillers:
• Radiesse is designed to stimulate collagen production and harness your own body to make new skin.
• Radiesse has more volume allowing additional correction than hyaluronic acid fillers.
• Radiesse has a thicker consistency and allows correction of deeper lines.
Hands are often overlooked as an area of visible aging. However, hands are subject to the same factors that cause aging of facial skin. Radiesse filler is ideal to provide volume restoration for hands that have lost. Radiesse hands can be combined with treating the skin of the hands with laser resurfacing, microneedling and IPL Photofacials.
