Radiesse is safe and effective. It not only compensates for the lost volume, but also stimulates the natural process of collagen synthesis, increases the density of the skin and builds up elastic fibers through mechanical stimulation, which leads to long term rejuvenation and improved skin quality.
Radiesse is a dermal stimulator, which can be applied in consideration of the specific requirements of the patient. It contains calcium microspheres (CaHA), implemented in a water-based gel carrier.
Radiesse works in two different ways. In the first three months, the injections act as a cosmetic filler, by satiating the skin and decreases the appearance of fine lines on the face. After that, the microspheres stimulate the synthesis of collagen and elastin, as well as the tissue growth in and around the injection zone. As time passes, the gel is absorbed, while the collagen synthesis continues in the treated zone.
After the gel is broken down by the body, the improvement of the skin quality can continue up to 12 or more months.
Radiesse is also an attractive product for men. It can be used to correct the face and restore lost volume, to contour and to rejuvenate the skin and upkeep the youthful appearance.
