At Drs Med Spa in Little Rock, AR, we offer RADIESSE, a versatile dermal filler that goes beyond simple wrinkle reduction. Its unique formula offers immediate results and stimulates the body’s collagen production, providing a longer-lasting solution to signs of aging.
How Does RADIESSE Tighten Skin?
RADIESSE is a dermal filler that primarily consists of calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres suspended in a gel. It is often used for facial rejuvenation to address volume loss and improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles. While it can improve the overall appearance of the skin and create a lifting effect, it doesn’t technically “tighten” the skin in the way that surgical procedures like facelifts do.
This product is injected beneath the skin’s surface to add volume. This helps fill in lines and wrinkles and can also lift sagging areas, such as the cheeks, nasolabial folds, and marionette lines. The added volume can create a more youthful and refreshed appearance, as if the skin has been tightened.
One of the key mechanisms behind RADIESSE’s effects is its ability to stimulate collagen production. As the body absorbs the gel carrier over time, the calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres remain in place and promote the production of natural collagen. Collagen is a structural protein that contributes to the firmness and elasticity of the skin.
By adding volume and promoting collagen growth, this filler provides a subtle lifting effect. This can help reduce the appearance of sagging skin and improve the overall tightness and tone of the treated area.
What’s Special About RADIESSE?
As mentioned above, unlike traditional dermal fillers that primarily use hyaluronic acid, this filler is formulated with calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres, which provide a dual benefit of immediate volume correction and long-term skin improvement. Immediately after injection, it works by adding volume to the treated area, effectively filling in wrinkles, lines, and hollowed regions on the face. This immediate plumping effect contributes to a more youthful and refreshed look. However, what sets it apart is its ability to stimulate the natural production of collagen.
Collagen is a fundamental protein in the skin responsible for its firmness and elasticity. As we age, collagen production diminishes, leading to sagging skin and the formation of wrinkles. RADIESSE addresses this by encouraging the body to produce more collagen, essentially promoting a natural tightening and rejuvenation of the skin. The process of collagen production is gradual and occurs as the body gradually absorbs the gel carrier. This means that the benefits continue to improve over time, offering not just immediate results, but also long-term skin enhancement.
Where Can It Be Used?
This treatment is versatile and can be used in various areas of the face, such as the cheeks, jawline, and the back of the hands, to provide a lifting and rejuvenating effect. Its unique approach to skin enhancement has made it a valuable option for individuals looking to achieve a more youthful and toned appearance without surgery.
How Long Do Results Last?
The duration of RADIESSE results can vary from person to person and depends on several factors, including the area treated, individual metabolism, and the amount of product used. However, on average, results typically last for about 12 to 18 months.
This product is known for its longevity compared to some other dermal fillers. This is because it provides immediate volume correction and then goes on to stimulate the natural production of collagen in the treated area. Collagen is a structural protein that helps maintain skin firmness and elasticity. As the gel carrier is gradually absorbed by the body, the calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres remain in place and continue to promote collagen growth. This ongoing collagen production can extend the duration of the results.
While this treatment provides long-lasting effects, it is not a permanent solution. Over time, the body gradually absorbs the product, and the natural aging process continues. When the effects begin to diminish, you may choose to undergo additional treatments to maintain your desired results. The specific longevity of RADIESSE results can vary, and some people may experience results lasting more than 18 months, while others may find that the effects start to diminish slightly earlier.
