As the skin loses collagen, volume and elasticity with age, lines, wrinkles and folds can appear on the face. Dermal filler injections can add back some of the lost volume and smooth lines and folds to create a more youthful appearance. Radiesse® injections are a unique dermal filler that not only can immediately address lines, folds and wrinkles, but it can increase collagen in the skin. Our team at LM Medical NYC in Manhattan utilizes Radiesse injections as one of our non-surgical treatments to combat the signs of aging.
What makes Radiesse different than other dermal filler injections? The majority of dermal fillers use hyaluronic acid as their main ingredient to add volume under the skin. While HA fillers are effective and have many benefits for enhancing lips or adding volume to the skin, they do not increase collagen production. Radiesse’s main ingredient is calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres, which are suspended in a gel substance. The microspheres work immediately to add volume to skin and stimulate collagen production to improve skin tone, texture and elasticity.
Facial Wrinkle Reduction Treatment
Radiesse injections are often used to treat lines, wrinkles and folds in the lower face. The immediate volume can smooth smile lines along the nasolabial folds or vertical marionette lines around the mouth.
The added volume to the skin can create a softer, more youthful appearance. Radiesse continues to help improve the skin by inducing collagen production, which can revive the firmness and elasticity over the following months. Results from Radiesse injections can last for 12 months or more.
If you have lines and wrinkles appearing on your lower face, Radiesse injections may be a solution to offer long-lasting, smoothing results.
