Deeper folds and wrinkles in the skin are often due to lost collagen and elastin in the skin. While some dermal fillers only add volume, Radiesse dermal filler also helps increase lost collagen in the skin for a long-lasting, youthful appearance. Experienced facial plastic surgeon Dr. Rousso, offers Radiesse injections as one of the options of non-surgical aging treatments at our clinic in Manhattan.
Unlike dermal fillers that use hyaluronic acid, Radiesse is formulated from calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres in a gel substance. This not only creates immediate volume in the skin to smooth lines and wrinkles, it works to stimulate collagen production in the skin. Dr. Rousso can carefully use this treatment to target deeper lines and folds that create an aged appearance, such as the nasolabial lines around the nose and mouth.
Advantages of Radiesse Dermal Filler Injections
It can be daunting when researching different dermal fillers to determine which may be right for creating the results you desire. Dr. Rousso uses several types of dermal fillers, each with its own advantages, including Radiesse dermal fillers. Some of the benefits of Radiesse include:
- Immediate results for smoother, more youthful skin
- Improved levels of collagen to repair and create a smoother, toned appearance
- Long-lasting results – even after the CaHA is absorbed into the body, the collagen left behind can soften lines and folds for a year or more
- Lidocaine is added to the Radiesse formula to improve comfort during treatments for the patient
