The main structural protein in the body is collagen, which keeps the skin youthful. Through the natural process of aging, collagen production slows, leaving the skin to sag and wrinkles to form. Radiesse is a nonsurgical procedure that adds immediate volume while also stimulating the skin's natural collagen production process.
Radiesse is a non invasive procedure with virtually no downtime. Appoints are typically only 30 minutes long, and patients are able to return to their daily routine immediately after treatment.
Targeted areas for Radiesse include smile lines, marionette lines, pre-jowl folds, corners of the mouth, chin wrinkles, and back of the hands. Your provider will work closely with you to determine the best treatment areas for you.
The active ingredient that works to add volume and stimulate collagen in Radiesse is calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres. Once injected into the desired treatment area, the skin is stimulated to restore it’s youthful appearance.
Radiesse treatments typically last 12-18 months.
