As people age they lose collagen. Collagen is what gives us that plump youthful appearance. As it diminishes the skin begins to sag, wrinkle and look sunken in. Unlike some products, Radiesse begins to work immediately and helps the body replenish itself over time.
Radiesse is made of calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres in an aqueous gel carrier. It is FDA approved to be added with lidocaine, a local anesthetic to diminish pain with the injection. What is great about Radiesse is that upon injection, it actually begins working immediately. The injection can be controlled and corrected to give just the right amount What’s more, the gel is slowly absorbed by the body over time. The body metabolises the calcium hydroxypatite and stimulates the production of the body’s natural collagen. The patient is left with soft, natural looking skin.
Radiesse is clinically proven to show results for at least one year. It can be injected anywhere the patient desires to have a more youthful looking appearance. There are few contraindications in using Radiesse. It is contraindicated if the patient has severe allergies, is hypersensitive to any component in Radiesse, or if the patient has a bleeding disorder. It is also not to be injected near any active infection site.
