Collagen is what gives volume, flexibility and strength to healthy, young skin. As a part of the aging process, your own natural collagen breaks down, diminishing facial volume and elasticity. This loss of elasticity and volume results in wrinkles, facial lines and skin laxity – all of which rob your skin of its youthful, fresh appearance.
Replenish Volume. Restore Collagen. Refresh You.
Ideal wrinkle reduction is achieved by replenishing your skin's lost volume. Upon injection, RADIESSE Volumizing Filler immediately provides the volume and lift needed to diminish the signs of aging because of the calcium-based microspheres and gel that comprise the product. But what's unique about RADIESSE Volumizing Filler is that it acts as a scaffold under the skin, providing structure and stimulating your own natural collagen to grow. This process continues for several months, which extends the initial effect of RADIESSE. Best of all, the natural results are clinically proven to last a year or more in many patients, which is why more and more physicians and other medical professionals are choosing RADIESSE to achieve long-lasting facial rejuvenation.
RADIESSE is particularly good for nasolabial folds (smile lines), marionette lines, downturned mouth, volume loss in the cheeks or on the jaw line. RADIESSE should not be used in the lips.
Since I've had RADIESSE myself, I thought, what the heck, I'll post my own photos. As you can see, I had very significant smile lines.
This top picture is before Radiesse at age 45. Next is what I looked like about 2 hrs after Radiesse, and finally, what I look like now, 8 months later at age 46.
