Is Radiesse Right for You?

Just thirty years ago, it would have sounded impossible to have a safe way to inject the skin with a formula that subtly, naturally, and temporarily smooths away wrinkles and replenishes lost volume without any nasty side effects. Today, that idea isn’t just possible, but incredibly popular. Dermal fillers have surged to popularity thanks to their ability to instantly restore youthfulness to the skin and wipe away signs of aging without any surgery or recovery time. The selection of dermal fillers continues to grow as cosmetic experts uncover new and innovative formulas to enhance the skin and battle aging. Radiesse is one such filler that offers unique benefits not just to the face but also to the hands.

Add Volume, Heal Your Skin, Help Your Hands

Radiesse plumps the skin by adding volume to the areas of the lower face impacted by age. Made with microspheres of Calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA), the Radiesse formula is a light gel that instantly adds volume under the skin upon injection. This volume spreads itself out to fill chin wrinkles, marionette lines, and smile lines. As a result, your face appears younger, healthier, and rejuvenated.

In addition, Radiesse sets itself apart from other dermal fillers by even triggering the body to produce more collagen. Collagen is one of the most essential components of healthy skin, but its production diminishes over the years and leaves the skin to wrinkle and deflate. By helping the body produce more of its own collagen once again, Radiesse makes it possible for the skin to heal itself and transform from lax, dull, and wrinkled to vibrant and healthy. Over time, the CaHA microspheres of Radiesse are absorbed into the body, but the extra collagen remains in action to encourage radiant skin.

Finally, just in case you needed a third reason to love Radiesse, this filler can also be used to restore the hands. Most people focus on how aging impacts the face, but the truth is that the hands endure even more sun exposure and overuse than we realize. Many women notice that their hands look aged and unattractive before their face. Radiesse resolves this problem, because its CaHA microspheres are FDA approved to fill the hands with lost volume in order to reduce and reverse the bulges and body appearance commonly associated with age. It’s called the “hand lift,” and it lasts for at least one year.
