Lost volume in the face can result in lines and wrinkles, as well as a sunken, older appearance. One of the quickest ways to restore a youthful appearance is using facial filler injections, including Radiesse® injections. Unlike most facial fillers that use hyaluronic acid to add volume, Radiesse uses calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) to treat skin aging issues and increase collagen levels in the skin. At Eden Plastic Surgery Institute, we offer Radiesse injections as one of the anti-aging cosmetic treatments at our medical facility in Miami.
Hyaluronic acid fillers are effective at filling lines, wrinkles and adding volume to the skin, but they do not change the skin structure. Collagen loss is one of the main causes of sagging, wrinkled skin. Most fillers only plump the skin, but do not increase collagen. This is what makes Radiesse different, as it uses CaHa to add immediate volume while it also stimulates collagen production. The results are instant smoothing of lines or wrinkles and long-term improvement of the elasticity and volume in the skin.
Long-Lasting Volume and Increased Collagen
Most hyaluronic acid facial fillers have results that diminish in about one year. With Radiesse injections, there is immediate volume improvement in the skin, but ongoing increases in collagen for long-lasting results. The skin improves over time as collagen levels increase, and results can last longer, even as long as five years.
Smile lines, marionette lines, sunken cheeks and other facial volume loss issues can be treated with Radiesse injections. Also, wrinkled and bony hands can be treated with Radiesse injections, smoothing wrinkles and adding a youthful appearance to the skin on the hands.
