Over time, it can become more difficult for the body to restore lost collagen and support the layers of skin over top of the collagen matrix. This results in sagging skin and a loss of volume, creating folds and wrinkles. One popular way to treat these signs of aging without surgery is through injectable treatments. Radiesse® is one popular option that can produce long-term results.
Radiesse is a dermal filler that can correct severe wrinkles and folds while at the same time helping to boost collagen production, restoring facial volume to smooth out the signs of aging. Once injected, it work with the body to stimulate natural collagen production. This makes it different than hyaluronic acid fillers, which only provide volume through a clear gel. Radiesse is instead made with calcium hydroxyapatite, which stimulates your body to produce collagen and restore volume.
Although results are visible immediately after injection, Radiesse continues to refine its results as time goes on. This means that results can last a year or more in some patients. After the results begin to fade, patients can opt for retreatment. After the injection session, most patients experience some mild redness and swelling which subside quickly. For best results, Radiesse can be used at the same time as neuromodulators like Botox® and Dysport®.
