Cosmetic Injections are non-surgical, temporary to long-lasting injectable solutions, used to combat wrinkles and restore volume to the face and other parts of your body.
As skin ages, it loses its elasticity and becomes less supple resulting in lips losing their fullness, lines appearing around the mouth and nose area, and cheeks looking sunken and hollow and hands look veiny and boney.
Dermal Fillers, such as Radiesse are a non-surgical, temporary to long-lasting solution that make it possible to restore volume to hollowed areas, to contour your face and to tackle fine lines and wrinkles. Dermal Fillers can add definition to your face and are particularly effective in filling in lines, creating more prominent cheeks and fuller lips.
Radiesse is a synthetic dermal filler made of calcium hydroxyapatite is utilized for the correction of moderate to severe wrinkles and folds. This injectable is a longer-lasting filler because the body forms collagen around the microspheres; adding bulk to the injected areas.
How does Radiesse® work?
Radiesse is made up of tiny beads of calcium hydroxylapatite and has FDA approval. Calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHa) has been safely used in the body for many reasons including dental applications where bone build-up is needed for reconstruction and also in block form for cosmetic applications such as cheek, jaw, cranial and chin implants.
Radiesse is not a permanent filler. It is a long lasting, resorbable filler – with the effect claimed to last approximately 1-2 years depending on the client and the area treated.
Once injected into your skin, the smooth and spherical CaHA particles form a ‘scaffold’ which stimulates your own cells to produce collagen around the spheres. The gel carrier dissolves within a few months and over time, the CaHA particles gradually break down and are completely metabolized by the body, leaving only the new collagen structure.
Radiesse Hand Lift
Radiesse wears well in the hands and provides an instant cushion replacement. The depressions between the tendons and veins are refilled so both the bony appearance and the vein prominences (and the dark color of the veins) are reduced, giving your hands a softer, fuller appearance that signifies youth.
