What are RADIESSE® and RADIESSE® (+)?
RADIESSE® and RADIESSE® (+) are dermal fillers that are used for smoothing moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds (the creases that extend from the corner of your nose to the corner of your mouth). RADIESSE® is also used for correcting volume loss in the back of the hands
How Radiesse® can help create a more youthful appearance, Your skin changes over time
It’s the first and only FDA-approved CaHA portfolio that provides immediate contouring plus stimulation of collagen and elastin production, That’s probably no surprise—but do you know exactly how? Two important components in how the skin changes over time are collagen and elastin, because they help keep facial lines and wrinkles at bay. Collagen and elastin both contribute to the skin’s strength and elasticity. Unfortunately, aging and environmental factors (think sun damage) make it harder for your body to produce these components. Reduced amounts of collagen and elastin can cause facial skin to wrinkle and sag, stealing from your youthful appearance.
Upon injection, the Radiesse CaHA gel matrix provides immediate improvement
CaHA particles then integrate into your skin and create a “scaffold” that stimulates production of collagen and elastin
As the gel carrier breaks down, a firm network of collagen fibers forms
Formed collagen and elastin replaces the correction provided by the gel carrier, smoothing lines and promoting renewed skin structure
