Aging is a natural part of life that can bring many positive changes – wisdom, experience, self-awareness – but on the flip side, the affect it has on our bodies and skin is not always a welcome one…
As we get older, skin that was once smooth and radiant can begin to look not so vibrant. This is because when we are younger, our skin is abundant in collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid, all of which provide support and volume, giving the complexion a supple and soft appearance. As we get older however, these natural support structures begin to degrade. Collagen production slows, elastin fibers begin to break down and hyaluronic acid diminishes. The result is tissue that was once taut becomes gradually more lax, resulting in sagging skin and the appearance of wrinkles. As HA levels decrease, the skin becomes more susceptible to dryness which causes wrinkles and premature aging.
So what is one to do when the aging process robs your skin of its once fresh and youthful appearance? Well, since the major culprit for parched and sagging skin is loss of structural components, the obvious solution is to replenish lost volume, and that’s exactly what RADIESSE® Treatments accomplish!
RADIESSE® Volumizing Filler
RADIESSE® is a volumizing filler that contains tiny calcium-based microspheres suspended in a water-based gel. These calcium microspheres are very similar to the natural minerals found in our bodies. Over time, the body absorbs the microspheres and gel, leaving only natural collagen behind.
RADIESSE® is unique in that it stimulates the production of new collagen, so even after the filler material breaks down, newly replenished collagen remains around the injection site to maintain a firm, smooth complexion.
Once injected, RADIESSE® starts working immediately to restore volume where the effects of aging have caused skin to grow slack and hollow. The filler acts as a scaffold under the skin, providing structural support that lifts and plumps the skin while stimulating your own natural collagen to grow. The production of fresh collagen continues for several months after treatment for long-lasting results.
