Unlike treatments that only have a tightening and lifting effect, Radiesse actually continues to work as time goes on, stimulating a process called collagenesis, which is the production and growth of new collagen around the site of the injection. So instead of just “tightening and lifting” the target area, Radiesse actually helps the body prevent the wrinkles from coming back in the future.
Radiesse gives results that can last for up to a year, with the best case patients reporting results that have lasted almost double the average time. When it is injected, it almost instantly adds shape and volume to the target area, while safely contouring, beautifying, or correcting problem areas.
Radiesse is very safe, having undergone a good amount of testing throughout the years. Its bio-compatible composition makes it very nearly identical to what is found naturally in a person’s body, which virtually eliminates any risks of an allergic reaction, and reduces side effects to a bare minimum. Anyone who wishes to eliminate, or prevent wrinkles, can opt for the Radiesse treatment. Younger patients can use it to eliminate newly appearing wrinkles and to prevent them from coming back early on, and older patients can use it to eliminate existing wrinkles and slow down the aging process.
