Radiesse is a unique, semipermanent dermal filler which works with your skin to fill creases and stimulate the growth of new collagen. It is made of a compound called calcium hydroxyapatite which is found in our bodies. However, the actual particles of the injection gel are lab derived to prevent adverse allergic reactions.
Why Radiesse Helps With Improving Facial Structures
The calcium microspheres create a scaffold beneath the skin’s surface which provides components that stimulate the development of new collagen fibers. So even after the microspheres have dissolved, the collagen fibers remain to improve the firmness of your skin.
The procedure takes about 15-20 minutes. Side effects are quite minimal and can include slight swelling and possible bruising for a few days. The results last up to a year.
Patients are usually quite happy with the natural quality of the results.
