Looking young and vibrant could be a challenge when the signs of aging start to appear on the face. As a person ages, the face loses its volume. Facial contour is affected and wrinkles start to show. Some people who do not mind going under the knife choose to have a facelift. As for those who cannot afford the downtime or simply do not wish to undergo surgery, dermal fillers are good alternatives. At Laser & Mohs Dermatology of New York, we offer several injection therapies in New York including Radiesse.
Radiesse is a safe and effective method of treating wrinkles and improving facial contour. What people love most about Radiesse is its long-lasting effect. The effects of Radiesse can last up to a year, the longest among all dermal fillers.
What makes it different from other dermal fillers?
Most dermal fillers are made with hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally found in the body. Hyaluronic acid fillers continue working for a period of three to six months only. Radiesse, on the other hand, is made of calcium-based microspheres. Radiesse lasts longer since calcium hydroxylapatite takes more time to break down.
Radiesse is also proven to stimulate the production of collagen in the body, improving the elasticity of the skin. The growth of collagen paves the way for Radiesse to be slowly and safely absorbed by the body. Even after the body has completely absorbed Radiesse, the collagen replacement will continue to help keep your skin smooth and firm.
