Radiesse™ is made up of tiny, microscopic calcium hydroxyapatite particles dissolved in a cellulose suspension. These little particles act as a “biological stimulant” for your body to make collagen around the particles, and this collagen plumps up and smooths wrinkles.
The procedure is ideal for those who experience deflation and sagging in the facial area. By providing collagen and structural volume to the sunken regions of the space, a Radiesse treatment restores the skin’s elasticity, smoothes wrinkle lines and creates a glowing, youthful appearance.
Radiesse™ can also be diluted and injected superficially as a collagen stimulating agent without adding volume to the area. The Hyperdiluted Radiesse technique combines the filler with saline and lidocaine. At Clear Skin Laser & Wellness Group, we can harness this technique’s unique bio-active, collagen-producing power to rejuvenate the skin by improving texture & firmness, volume loss, wrinkles and even cellulite. This treatment slows down the ageing process and can lift and tighten skin.
The effects of a Radiesse treatment generally subside after 14-18 months. At that point, patients are advised to schedule another appointment.
For diluted Radiesse, we recommend 2 – 3 treatments performed 6-8 weeks apart for optimal results. To maintain results, we recommend a follow-up treatment approximately once per year.
