Collagen keeps your skin firm and youthful, but over time this substance breaks down. With Radiesse, we can stimulate collagen growth. The result is smoother skin, fewer wrinkles, and a more youthful appearance. The results outlast most wrinkle fillers; in many cases they last longer than one year.
WHAT CAN RADIESSE TREAT?
If you’re bothered by signs of aging like wrinkles and folds, then you may benefit from Radiesse treatments. After injection, Radiesse stimulates a process called collagenesis that works to correct problems such as:
- Nasolabial folds
- Marionette lines
- Wrinkles around your mouth
- Puffy, dark bags beneath your eyes
- Flat or hollow cheeks
Radiesse is best for healthy non-smokers who are between the ages of 18 and 65.
HOW DOES RADIESSE WORK?
An injection of Radiesse immediately restores volume to the tissue. Your plastic surgeon injects Radiesse into areas that need wrinkle correction. The filler restores volume to sunken areas, reducing the appearance of lines and contour depressions. The results are evident right away and continue to improve over time.
Because Radiesse is made with special calcium-based microspheres suspended in a water-based gel, it causes your body to generate more collagen. After your Radiesse treatments, your body will continue to stimulate collagen that improves your appearance.
HOW WILL I LOOK AND FEEL AFTER RADIESSE
After Radiesse injections, you may notice some some swelling, bruising, or redness at the injection sites. These will subside in a short time. You should be able to return to your normal routine right away.
Sculptra is the first facial injectable that gives you noticeable results that emerge subtly and can last up to two years.
Sculptra is indicated for the correction of shallow to deep nasolabial folds (smile lines), contour deficiencies, and other facial wrinkles that are treated with the appropriate injection technique in healthy people.
HOW DOES SCULPTRA WORK?
Sculptra gradually replaces lost collagen.
Collagen is a key structural component that keeps skin youthful looking and smooth. As you age, your body’s collagen production decreases, and you may begin to see wrinkles. Sculptra works to correct shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds, as it replaces lost collagen, which can help provide a refined, more youthful looking appearance.
