Radiesse Filler In New Jersey
Treating sagging skin and deep furrows on the face is one of the most common cosmetic procedures. There are a number of fillers available. The most popular are hyaluronic acid fillers, such as Juvederm. However, other fillers that are not made of hyaluronic acid are also available. Though less commonly used, they are still an effective class of fillers.
Radiesse is FDA-approved for the correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as the nasolabial folds. Radiesse replaces lost volume, and also stimulates production of new collagen. This reduces the appearance of wrinkles, and restores a more youthful contour. Radiesse provides more lift than most hyaluronic acid fillers. It lasts a year or longer in most patients.
How does Radiesse work?
Radiesse is comprised of Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres suspended in an aqueous gel carrier. It works in two ways. When injected, it provides immediate volume and correction. But Radiesse continues to work over time by stimulating the body to produce its own natural collagen. Eventually, the gel carrier is absorbed and the body metabolizes the CaHA microspheres leaving behind only your own natural collagen.
Where can Radiesse be injected?
Areas commonly treated with Radiesse include smile lines (also known as nasolabial folds), marionnete lines (lines that run straight downwards from the corners of the mouth), corners of the mouth, pre-jowl sulcus, chin, and cheeks.
Can Radiesse be injected into hands?
Radiesse is FDA-approved for injection into hands. Sometimes the hands give away your age. Radiesse can help fill in the lost volume. See the Radiesse website for more details.
Can Radiesse be dissolved?
Unlike hyaluronic acid fillers, which can be dissolved, Radiesse cannot be dissolved.
