Fillers are incredibly effective at reversing the signs of aging, especially when it comes to loss of volume and sagging skin. If you’re worried that getting filler injections will lead to stiff, unnatural results – let us put your mind at ease. Modern filler formulations are the perfect blend of firm and flexible, giving you the volume you want without creating an unnatural appearance. We love using Radiesse to tackle some of the most common aging skin concerns. It’s versatile, natural-looking, and most importantly – it helps to boost your own collagen production.
While most fillers rely on a hyaluronic acid gel to create volume, Radiesse contains a unique Calcium hydroxyapatite (CaHA) formulation. In fact, it’s the first and only FDA-approved filler of its kind in the US. So, what does this special formula do? Firstly, the CaHA gel is slightly stiffer than other hyaluronic acid fillers which makes it perfect for use in the lower face, where gravity takes a more obvious toll. For example, many people notice their jawlines start to droop a bit (the dreaded “jowls”) while also seeing deepening lines around their smiles (marionette lines). These areas require a more robust filler to plump up deep lines and create a more defined jaw.
In addition to the short-term effect of visible, face-lifting results, the unique CaHA gel matrix actually starts stimulating your body to produce more collagen. That means you’ll get long-term age-rewinding results as well.
Big Impact, Big Value
When we think of anti-aging injections, many people fixate on forehead lines or lines around the eyes (crow’s feet). It’s true that these areas of the face do show age, however, don’t underestimate the power of a defined jawline! By using filler to “lift” the face and contour the jaw, you’ll appear years younger – even with some crow’s feet around the eyes.
Fillers in general are very affordable, but you get more bang for your buck if they last a long time. Because of the way Radiesse works, the results last anywhere from 12-14 months! In other words, you’ll only have to maintain your appearance around once a year. Plus, you’ll see improvement in your skin elasticity over time from the collagen-boosting properties.
