Collagen is the main structural protein in our skin that helps it feel and look taut, and youthful. As we age, the production of collagen slows down, causing the skin to sag.
Radiesse is a collagen stimulator. It stimulates your body’s natural collagen, filling in wrinkles long-term and helping your skin develop new collagen in the process It’s also for the backs of hands where volume has been lost.
Radiesse is made of calcium hydroxyapatite (CaHA) gel microspheres that work immediately upon injection. CaHA is made up of ions of phosphate and calcium, which occur naturally in the human body. The injectable gel initially does all the work of filling in the volume you want.
Radiesse procedures take no longer than 40 to 50 minutes and are performed in-clinic, you can go home or return to your normal routine immediately after your appointment, although you should minimize strenuous activities and sunlight exposure for a period of time after the procedure.
