More Than Filler: Radiesse, The Collagen-Building Biostimulator

Featured Image

While hyaluronic acid fillers are commonly used for deep lines and volume restoration, some individuals may prefer a more subtle and natural-looking result. This treatment focuses on stimulating collagen production for long-term rejuvenation.

Radiesse is a dermal filler that works differently from the classic HA fillers. It is a unique biostimulator that contains tiny calcium hydroxyapatite (CaHA) microspheres suspended in a gel carrier. When injected, these microspheres stimulate your body's natural collagen production over time. This results in a gradual, natural-looking restoration of volume and reduction of wrinkles.

Key Benefits of Radiesse: 

Natural-looking results: Radiesse promotes your own collagen growth, leading to a smoother, plumper appearance that blends seamlessly with your natural features. 

Long-lasting effects: Radiesse can last up to a year or more, depending on your individual treatment and desired outcome. 

Varied treatment options: Versatility of treatments including hand rejuvenation, nasolabial folds & marionette lines, pre-jowl area & jowls, cheeks & temples. 

Stimulates collagen production: Unlike HA fillers that aim to add volume, Radiesse encourages your body to build its own collagen, providing a longer-lasting foundation for youthful-looking skin. 

Safe and FDA-approved: Radiesse has an excellent safety profile and is FDA-approved for facial tissue augmentation. 

Radiesse vs Sculptra:

Both Sculptra and Radiesse are types of collagen-stimulating fillers, but they differ in certain aspects. Sculptra uses poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) as its material, whereas Radiesse uses CaHA microspheres. The onset of results for both fillers is similar, but Sculptra typically takes 4-6 weeks to show initial results, with full results appearing within three months. Radiesse, on the other hand, takes around 2-3 weeks to show the initial response, with the final results being achieved within 2-3 months. Therefore, Radiesse has a slightly faster initial response. Additionally, Radiesse can be injected deeper for volumizing, while Sculptra is usually used for subtler correction.

What is Hyperdiluted Radiesse?

If you're looking for a natural outcome, especially in delicate areas like your hands, then the hyper-dilution technique with Radiesse is something you may want to consider. This technique involves diluting the product with a local anesthetic, which can provide several benefits. Clinicians can achieve precise placement and gradual volume restoration, reducing the chance of an unnatural look. The anesthetic in the diluted solution provides added comfort during the injection process. Additionally, hyperdilution allows clinicians to focus on specific areas and concerns, delivering collagen-stimulating benefits precisely where they're needed.
