Collagen is nature’s firming substance, and nothing is more beautiful than collagen-rich skin – fresh, firm, and supple. As the years pass, the body stops producing the same amount of this critical skin-firming substance, causing the skin to thin, sag, and wrinkle. Radiesse addresses this loss with a different approach: It is a collagen stimulator. The active ingredient is calcium hydroxyapatite, or biocompatible CaHA, suspended in a smooth gel. The results achieved with Radiesse appear immediately, and improve with time, as the tiny beads of CaHA are absorbed by the body, leaving natural collagen in its place.

How does Radiesse work?

The smooth microspheres of CaHA in Radiesse trigger the natural production of collagen that builds a natural scaffolding to lift and smooth the skin, with exceptionally natural-looking results. As the gel in which the microspheres are suspended is absorbed, a process called neocollagenesis is initiated, triggering natural collagen production for firmer, more youthful skin. The increased collagen production in the facial skin continues for a year or longer, with results that appear entirely natural.

Am I a candidate for Radiesse?

Radiesse is biocompatible, and no testing is required before your injections. Candidates for the treatment are:

  • Between 30 and 60 years old
  • No active skin conditions
  • In good general health and do not suffer from a health condition that could trigger excessive bleeding

Is Radiesse right for me?

Radiesse is an exciting advance in aesthetic medicine, as it works with your body to regenerate natural collagen, for long-term results, while providing an instant smoothing effect. If you are looking for a facial enhancement with results that last, you may want to consider Radiesse. As your skin produces higher quantities of natural collagen, you will see the effects of your treatment improving in the weeks and months following your injections.

Defying nature with Radiesse

If you are unhappy with the signs of aging skin, you can defy nature with Radiesse. Rather than living with skin that appears lax, thin, and lifeless due to collagen loss, consider undergoing Radiesse injections to stimulate natural skin regeneration. Your skin will become firmer, more supple, and smoother with the help of this groundbreaking injectable.
