Radiesse is a filler composed of calcium hydroxyapatite, a natural mineral in our body that is normally found in bones and teeth. This compound works on depressed areas, either due to weight loss or age, helping to recover lost volume, defining facial contours and other facial imperfections.
The areas that are worked on are cheeks, cheekbones and jaw arch where very noticeable improvements can be seen. The results can even be seen in other areas, because, by recovering the lost volume, the visibility of the nasolabial fold will be reduced.
This component reduces wrinkles and folds as well as immediately generating volume and stimulating the production of natural collagen. This is why it is considered an ideal product for facial flaccidity without affecting the natural expression itself.
One of the main characteristics of this type of treatment has to do with the fact that in almost all cases it does not require any type of allergic test for its administration. This is due to its composition of Calcium Hydroxyapatite microparticles, a component which, as mentioned above, is a natural part of our body. The results can be seen immediately, are totally natural and are maintained for up to one year after implantation.
Other main characteristics of calcium hydroxyapatite are the following:
- No components of animal origin.
- It is one of the safest fillers.
- The most recommended product for treating facial flaccidity.
- Rapid and complete absorption.
- Due to its high viscosity, it manages to maintain the natural expression of the face.
In short, Radiesse is a component that favours the generation of collagen in a natural way, achieving permanent results over the years. This has led it to become one of the most sought-after alternatives to put an end to facial flaccidity and recover lost volume.
