Dermal fillers are injections that can plump the skin, effectively reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and adding volume to the face. They are a popular method for those looking to appear more youthful without undergoing a procedure or taking recovery time.
Many types of dermal fillers are available, each offering different benefits. RADIESSE® stands out among these fillers because of its unique makeup, which makes it stiffer when compared to other fillers. Learn more about RADIESSE® and determine if it’s the right fit for you.
What Is RADIESSE®?
RADIESSE® is a filler made for volumizing. Essentially, it’s a smooth liquid with tiny calcium microspheres. When injected deep into the skin, it can add volume, lifting the skin and diminishing wrinkles and fine lines. It also helps to increase collagen production. Over time, the microspheres are metabolized by the body, allowing the injection to last up to a year.
RADIESSE® is beneficial for adding volume to the cheekbones, jawline, and chin, as well as reducing the appearance of aging hands.
RADIESSE® stands out among other fillers because it is made up of calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA), whereas most other fillers utilize hyaluronic acid (HA). CaHA is stiffer than other fillers, which is what allows it to provide more volume. CaHA contrary to other types of fillers has a proven ability to stimulate collagen production. The calcium particles work as a scaffold for collagen fibers to grow upon.
The unique collagen stimulation property of Radiesse is used “off-label” to correct lines in other areas of the body. Neck, décolleté area, and cellulite dimples are just a few of the multiple uses of Radiesse.
When Will You See the Results?
Results are visible Immediately after Radiesse injections. The mild swelling will disappear in the next few days. Dr. DeJuliis recommends using cold compresses afterward. Makeup can be applied within twenty-four hours. It is advisable not to exercise immediately after any type of filler because it could increase the chance of bruising. You will be able to go to work the same day and can return to your exercise routine the following day.
How Long Does It Last?
RADIESSE® is a great option for fillers because it lasts about 12 to 18 months. Depending on the patient’s age, condition of the skin, and individual needs multiple sessions might be necessary to achieve the desired correction. Once the full correction is obtained Dr. DeJuliis recommends one touch-up yearly. This will ensure a long-lasting refreshed appearance.
