The Magic Ingredient is You

radiesseWhat is Radiesse?

Radiesse is a unique filler that stimulates your body to naturally deposit collagen.  On the day of service – folds, lines and creases are filled for an immediate correction of volume.  This product is ideal for deeper nasal folds, smile lines, upper and lower cheeks, and chin areas.

Collagen is what gives volume, flexibility and strength to healthy, young skin. As a part of the aging process, your own natural collagen breaks down, diminishing facial volume and elasticity. This loss of elasticity and volume results in wrinkles, facial lines and skin laxity – all of which rob your skin of its youthful, fresh appearance.

Replenish Volume. Restore Collagen. Refresh You.

Ideal wrinkle reduction is achieved by replenishing your skin’s lost volume. Upon injection, Radiesse® Volumizing Filler immediately provides the volume and lift needed to diminish the signs of aging because of the calcium-based microspheres and gel that comprise the product. But what’s unique about Radiesse® Volumizing Filler is that it acts as a scaffold under the skin, providing structure and stimulating your own natural collagen to grow. This process continues for several months, extending the initial effects. Best of all, the natural results are clinically proven to last a year or more in many patients.

How is Radiesse different from other fillers?

Radiesse is different to fillers such as Restylane as it works with your body stimulating collagen production and encouraging tissue regeneration just below the skin’s surface. It does more than just temporarily fill-in facial lines and wrinkles – it rebuilds your skin’s foundation. It is made of very small, smooth calcium hydroxylapitite (CaHA) microspheres, suspended in a water-based gel carrier. As Radiesse is injected, the gel and Radiesse® microspheres form a ‘scaffold’, stimulating collagen production and encouraging tissue growth in and around the injection area. This ‘partnership’ between Radiesse and your own body creates a natural look, comprised of your own tissue and Radiesse microspheres. Over time (usually around 6 weeks), your body absorbs the gel carrier while collagen has started to grow and infiltrate the area, replacing the gel with your own, natural tissue. The Radiesse microspheres continue to provide the support and structure for your body to grow new tissue and collagen until the microspheres are also safely and naturally absorbed into your body.

At 60, I never wanted to look 30. I just wanted to take a few years off and with Radiesse I got exactly what I wanted…a natural, younger looking me. Thanks Dr Mickel
