Calcium-based microspheres provide a scaffold that promotes the formation of new collagen in the skin. Instead of just filling in select lines and wrinkles, Radiesse is used on larger areas like the cheeks and to frame the face.
Radiesse®, calcium hydroxyapatite, is safe, new generation cosmetic dermal filler. It is used for the correction of facial lines and wrinkles, restoring a natural, youthful look in an easy, convenient treatment. Numerous medical studies have shown that Radiesse is a long-lasting treatment to fill and correct jowls and jawline contours, as well as augmenting the mid cheek, chin and facial hollows.
Calcium-based microspheres provide a scaffold that promotes soft tissue in-growth. Fibroblasts (collagen producing cells) lay down a collagenous matrix. As matrix is deposited, calcium hydroxyapatite implant becomes integrated into the surrounding tissue, providing long-lasting, natural results. Calcium hydroxyapatite spheres are biodegradable and break down slowly over months to years. Because calcium hydroxyapatite is a normal constituent of bone, it does not elicit a chronic inflammatory or immune response lowering the risk of potential side effects.
Radiesse is long lasting. The longevity ranges between 12 and 18 months. Radiesse is a great treatment option for patients who seek a longer lasting correction.
