Radiesse Long Island
A calcium base makes Radiesse a unique dermal filler. Radiesse is one of the most requested on Long Island for its ability to restore cheek volume. In contrast to hyaluronic acid fillers, calcium stimulates collagen production. The new collagen rejuvenates the skin. Plus, it reduces wrinkles and sag.
As we age, collagen and fibrin levels drop, thus creating volume loss in the cheeks. Plus, Radiesse creates new collagen. Therefore, restoring the volume of youth as well as treats the underlying cause.
what areas can be injected?
Initially, approved for cheek augmentation. However, new areas include:
- Lower face
- Smile Lines
Although approved for injection into several areas, the face and cheek are undoubtedly the best. In our Long Island office we find results to be instant and long lasting.
what makes Radiesse different ?
Whereas most dermal fillers are hyaluronic acid, Radiesse is a calcium product. The calcium base makes for a fuller, thicker dermal filler with superior lifting capabilities. Furthermore, calcium causes new collagen formation. The new collagen further reduces wrinkles and fine lines.
However, the fact that Radiesse is not hyaluronic acid, a fully dissolvable filler but instead calcium means reversibility is difficult. Therefore, when injecting this filler accuracy is a must.
Of note, the prefilled syringe contains 1.5cc of Radiesse which is one half a cc more than every other dermal filler. Thus, a single syringe goes a bit further.
