What Is Radiesse?
As we age, there is a decrease in the production of collagen and elastin in our skin tissues. This results in the formation of age signs such wrinkles and volume loss.
Radiesse is the first and only FDA-approved CaHA (calcium hydroxylapatite) injectable that provides immediate and lasting skin-rejuvenation results. This dermal filler can treat moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds in the mid and lower facial areas. It is also suitable in restoring volume in the backs of the hands.
I was seen on time and the exam was very thorough – all my questions were answered. The doctor was very professional and attentive – the assistants were also very pleasant and helpful. Thank you.
How Does Radiesse Work?
Radiesse dermal filler is made up of calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres in an aqueous gel. It produces immediate visible effects, enhancing volume in the treatment area. Over time, Radiesse also stimulates the production of collagen. This results in longer-lasting skin-revitalization benefits.
