Radiesse® is a dermal filler product that is injected under the skin to correct age-induced volume loss. We can use this injectable to smooth out deep wrinkles and add volume to large depressions. In the hands of a qualified injector who has an in-depth knowledge of facial anatomy and harmony, the filler provides natural-looking results. Below is a list of just some of the benefits of Radiesse®, which is one of the most commonly used dermal fillers to date.
Improve Facial Volume
The presence of gaunt facial regions is one of the hallmarks of an aging face. Fortunately, Radiesse® can correct fat loss through its microspheres suspended in a gel that can provide instant volume. Wide depressions manifested by hollowed cheeks and a bony jawline tend to respond well to Radiesse®.
Correct the Appearance of Smile Lines
The appearance of smile lines is another telltale sign of facial aging. While other fillers can also correct them, Radiesse® offers a unique benefit: Due to its thicker consistency, the results are longer-lasting compared to other fillers. Due to its high cohesiveness, Radiesse® is also ideal for patients with thick skin who may only achieve little improvement with other types of fillers.
Correct the Downward Appearance of the Mouth
Filling in the folds around the mouth renders another auspicious effect: It corrects the down-turned appearance of the mouth.
Hide the Pre-Jowl Folds
Pre-jowl sulcus is a small bulge or fullness on each side of the chin, which Radiesse® can conceal by filling in the depression. For a more rejuvenated jawline, some patients may also need a small amount injected into their aging chin (recessed or reduced projection) that makes the pre-jowl sulcus more prominent.
It Triggers Increased Production of Collagen
While Radiesse® provides immediate volume, it also triggers the body to produce more collagen, which is the main structural protein of the skin that gives it its elasticity, strength, and youthful appearance. Over time, the body metabolizes the gel and microspheres of the injectable, although the newly created collagen persists longer.
Due to the high cohesiveness of Radiesse® and its collagen-inducing gel, the results can last for a long time when compared to other fillers.
