There are a lot of dermal fillers on the market. Most fill just one role: to replace volume loss in your skin, reducing the appearance of moderate to severe facial wrinkles. When it comes to RADIESSE, however, things look a little different. This filler stimulates collagen production, lifting your skin and replacing lost volume. But, depending on the way your doctor prepares and injects this filler, RADIESSE can also play a skin-tightening role and become an extremely versatile anti-aging treatment.
What is RADIESSE?
RADIESSE works differently than hyaluronic acid dermal fillers. That’s because RADIESSE is made up of a complex gel solution that does its job in two steps. At first, the solution fills in spots of volume loss. This makes your skin appear smooth and lifted. It can also help sculpt facial features.
But the job doesn’t stop there. Over time, your body absorbs the active ingredients in RADIESSE. And once you metabolize these “microspheres,” your body produces its own, new collagen. This fills in the space left behind by the absorbed filler. Because RADIESSE helps your body make new collagen, you can expect results that last up to 18 months. It’s a facial rejuvenation option and a volumizing filler, all in one injection.
Where can I inject RADIESSE?
RADIESSE is an FDA-approved dermal filler for your hands and most areas of your face. It is especially effective when used in your nasolabial folds. (These are the creases, or “smile lines,” that run from the corner of your nose to the corner of your mouth.) You can’t use RADIESSE on your eyelids, your lips, or the delicate area beneath your eyes.
We’ve also discovered something really exciting about RADIESSE: it can be hyper-diluted. When your doctor makes this change, its main job becomes skin rejuvenation. And you can apply hyper-diluted RADIESSE to even more areas of your body.
What is hyper-diluted RADIESSE?
We’ve already talked about RADIESSE as a dermal filler. Now let’s explore how this injectable, in a modified form, is also a powerful skin rejuvenator.
Your doctor mixes saline and lidocaine with RADIESSE to create a hyper-diluted product. The result? A thinner injectible that you can inject beneath your skin as an anti-aging treatment.
And that’s not all. Hyper-diluted RADIESSE effectively targets areas of moderate to severe cellulite. When you inject diluted RADIESSE to these dimpled skin areas, its plumping effect is immediate, so cellulite is much less pronounced.
As a hyper-diluted solution, RADIESSE can treat more areas of your body, including:
- Upper inner arms
Who can use RADIESSE?
This FDA-approved dermal filler and skin rejuvenation treatment is generally safe. But you shouldn’t use RADIESSE if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, or have a bleeding disorder. You should also avoid hyper-diluted RADIESSE if you have a lidocaine allergy.
