Are looking for an instant way to erase the signs of aging? Well RADIESSE® could be the answer! This injectable cosmetic filler provides volume to the skin which instantly lifts those areas such as the cheeks, smile lines, chin wrinkles, pre-jowl folds, and marionette lines that are more prone to visible signs of aging. And after a few quick treatments, it continues to work at promoting newer, youthful looking skin.
What is RADIESSE?
By stimulating the natural collagen that is present in your skin, this treatment is very effective at providing an instant lift to the skin, while smoothing it out underneath to give you that natural, youthful glow. As it has many applications, RADIESSE is known as a cosmetic filler, dermal filler, volumizing filler, wrinkle filler, facial filler, lip filler, and cheek filler.
How Does RADIESSE Work?
RADIESSE is formulated with calcium-based microspheres (calcium hydroxylapatite) to stimulate the natural production of collagen by the body. This dermal filler works instantly to restore lost volume, while the calcium-based microspheres continue to stimulate collagen product in the weeks and months after the treatment session.
How Long Does the Treatment Last?
After receiving your RADIESSE treatment, the filler continues to stimulate your own skin’s natural production of collagen. The great part is that even when you finish your treatment, you can enjoy long lasting results that continue to work with your body. Results can often last up to a year or even longer, but can vary for different patients.
