17 Feb Radiesse
If you want skin that is younger-looking and more vital, but don’t want to undergo costly and potentially risky surgery, treatment with Radiesse may be for you.
Calcium Hydroxyapatite (CaHA)
Calcium Hydroxyapatite (CaHA) is a ubiquitous substance found in all mammalian bones and teeth. Bone is made primarily of CaHA crystals interspersed in a collagen matrix. Hydroxyapatite deposits in tendons around joints results in the medical condition known as calcific tendinitis. For over 30 years synthetic CaHA has been used in bone grafts and dental implants. Hydroxyapatite is added to special toothpastes as an additive to prevent tooth decay.
What is Radiesse?
Radiesse, a synthetic CaHA, is a biocompatible and semi-permanent gel filler. Once injected, the gel is slowly absorbed and collagen production is stimulated. Historically Radiesse has been used for HIV lipoatrophy and vocal cord dysfunction but was approved for cosmetic use in December 2006.
Radiesse is safe and effective and is one of the most popular treatments for patients who want to ward off signs of aging non-surgically. Radiesse is injected under the skin and begins its work immediately to decrease the appearance of facial wrinkles and volume loss that often emerge as we age.
Radiesse is a long-acting filler, lasting from 12-18 months. Radiesse is safe and breaks down in your body naturally. And unlike other dermal fillers, such as hyaluronic acid, Radiesse stimulates the natural production of collagen.
