Radiesse

Facial Volume is an important factor that showcases your age. With age, the skin’s collagen breaks down causing the face to lose volume. Radiesseis an elective cosmetic procedure which can lift and contour your skin by simulating the face’s natural collagen to fill up the facial skin. Radiesse is a US FDA approved dermal filler which find use in reduce wrinkles and skin folds.

What Is Radiesse

Radiesse is an injectable high viscosity dermal filler which plumps up the skin and lifts it by diminishing the signs of ageing by restoring the skin’s natural elasticity. It is made up of tiny microspheres suspended in a water based gel carrier. The microspheres are made up of calcium hydroxylapatite, which is a naturally occurring substance in the body. The gel is carboxymethylcellulose which is basically an organic compound of calcium, hydrogen, oxygen, glycerine and sterile water.

Treatment Areas

How is Radiesse Administered

Our trained dermatologists will examine your skin and discuss with you as to how the facial lines and wrinkles can be treated. In a 15 minute procedure the dermatologist will administer Radiesse through an injection along with a local anaesthesia like lidocaine. The injection is administered under the skin in a continuous stream. It is administered between the dermis and the sub-cutis layer for an immediate correction and augmentation effect. The final effect is apparent in a week’s time.

What Makes Radiesse Effective

When Radiesse is injected, there is an immediate correction and volume with a lifting effect. The filling effect is brought about by the microspheres. These microspheres stimulate production of more collagen over the following weeks which startsforming a mesh around the microspheres. Eventually the microspheres get metabolised by the body leaving behind just the collagen which takes their place. This gives it the long lasting effect with a soft natural look. It degrades much more slowly than other modes of treatment.

Patient Satisfaction

Not only are the effects immediate, they are also long lasting. It can last upto two years, although touch up treatments may be sometimes required. Since the components of Radiesse occur naturally in the body, there are no risks of allergies.
