What are Injectable Fillers?

Over time your skin changes. Many factors and elements such as genetics and the normal aging process can play a toll on your skin.

Injectable facial fillers may be used for treating wrinkles and creases in both the hands and face:

Calcium Hydroxyapatite filler, such as RADIESSE® are a safe and non-surgical way to fill out facial and hand lines and creases. These dermal fillers that are used for smoothing moderate to severe facial wrinkles and the creases that extend from the corner of your nose to the corner of your mouth. RADIESSE® is also used for correcting volume loss in the back of the hands.

RADIESSE is excellent for renewing the mid-face, including smile lines and marionette lines. It differs from HA fillers because it contains tiny particles of calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA), a substance found in the teeth and bones, which help increase the production of a patient's own collagen over time. Results last up to a year.

What is Hyperdilute Radiesse?

A newer and highly effective use for Radiesse is the technique of hypderdilution. When diluted and injected superficially, Radiesse acts as a collagen stimulating agent. The Hyperdilute Radiesse technique combines the filler with saline and lidocaine, thinning the consistency and increasing the volume of product. The Hyperdilute Radiesse is then injected into the desired area through a thin cannula. This treatment is a favorable alternative to surgical intervention such as facelift or neck and décolleté lift.
