One of the main causes of lines, wrinkles and loss of firmness in the skin as you age is due to lower levels of collagen. As you get older, your skin produces less collagen, the substance that helps the skin stay firm and youthful. While there are many facial filler products available that can combat the effects of lost collagen and skin volume, Radiesse® is unique in its ability to induce collagen production. As part of our non-surgical treatment options at Los Angeles Plastic Surgery, Dr. John Anastasatos and our team offer Radiesse injections to smooth lines and add more volume to the skin.
What Makes Radiesse Different?
There are so many different facial fillers on the market now, and many of them can create outstanding cosmetic improvements. Most are made with hyaluronic acid, which collects moisture under the skin to add volume. What makes Radiesse different is it is not a hyaluronic acid filler. It is formulated with calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres in a gel substance that can be injected into areas of the skin that need added volume and firmness.
Radiesse microspheres offer immediate volume to fill deeper lines and folds in the skin, but also stimulate collagen production. The microspheres act as a scaffolding that the collagen can use to rebuild firmer skin. Over the months following Radiesse injections, the skin continues to increase in collagen levels. This can offer longer-lasting results that improve the overall texture and firmness of the skin, reducing lines and folds that are caused by aging skin.
