Your skin changes as you get older. Your body has a harder time producing collagen and elastin — proteins that help support a youthful appearance — due to factors like age and sun damage. Fortunately, some injectable treatments will stimulate the production of these compounds. RADIESSE® is one of them. Here’s a quick guide to this safe and effective dermal filler.
How Does RADIESSE Work?
RADIESSE is a filler that contains calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) particles. Upon injection, these particles seamlessly integrate into the treatment area. There, they stimulate the growth of new collagen and elastin. Once the gel slowly breaks down, only these beneficial proteins remain. The result is a rapid and continuous improvement in lines, wrinkles, and volume.
What Areas Can RADIESSE Treat?
RADIESSE can treat many areas of the mid and lower face. It’s an ideal way to address cheek contours, smile lines, marionette lines, pre-jowl folds, chin wrinkles, and lines at the corners of the mouth. And if you are interested in enhancing the definition of your jawline, RADIESSE can help with that, too.
Of course, signs of aging appear elsewhere. You may notice that your hands have changed over time. RADIESSE can restore lost volume while minimizing the look of veins and tendons.
How Long Do RADIESSE Injections Last?
RADIESSE injections are temporary. The treatment produces natural-looking results that last a year or more in many patients. You can schedule maintenance sessions to protect your look.
Some factors that impact the longevity of dermal fillers include:
- Your metabolism
- Unprotected UV exposure
- Air pollution and free radicals
- Location of the injection
- Dosage of the injection
