RADIESSE® wrinkle filler is at the forefront of the next generation in dermal fillers. It does more than just fill in lines and wrinkles it volumizes, giving that “WOW” effect. RADIESSE® wrinkle filler is proven to stimulate your body to generate new collagen, and creates soft, natural results instantly that last up to a year or more in many patients.
RADIESSE® is a dermal filler which contains tiny Calcium Hydroxylapatite microspheres suspended in an aqueous gel carrier. Once injected, it stimulates the body to produce its own natural collagen. Over time, the gel is absorbed and the body metabolizes these tiny calcium based microspheres, leaving behind only your body’s own natural collagen.
In this day and age, most of us are familiar with the importance of collagen. It’s what gives your young skin its full, supple appearance. And when it breaks down, you may begin to see skin laxity and facial wrinkles. When the collagen goes away, it takes facial volume and elasticity with it, leaving you with a face that may look older than how you feel inside.
If you aren’t ready to grow old gracefully, treatment with RADIESSE® wrinkle filler can bring back your own natural collagen and restore facial volume.
Common areas of the face that are treated with RADIESSE® include the nasolabial folds, marionette lines, oral commissure (corner of the mouth), pre–jowl sulcus (area either side of chin).
Smile Lines Nasolabial folds
For most of us, smile lines also known as nasolabial folds are nothing to smile about. These lines and creases run from the side of the nose to the corner of the mouth, and get deeper as we age and lose facial volume. They can make you look older, tired, or unhappy even though you feel young and vibrant. Fortunately for the young at heart, treatment with RADIESSE® wrinkle filler can bring back youthful volume.
Even if you have never heard of “marionette lines,” you probably know what they are. These lines that run downward from the corners of the mouth can make you look like you're frowning, even when you're not. They start out as fine lines, but can turn into deeper creases as we get older and lose facial volume.
The corners of your mouth are known as the oral commissure. And as you age, you can lose volume in this area. The downturned appearance of the mouth can make you look like you are frowning or sad. Volume loss in this area often leads to the formation or the deepening of already–formed marionette lines as well.
A little known area of the face that can make a big impact on the way we look is the pre-jowl sulcus. It's the area on either side of our chin. Volume loss in the skin associated with the aging process results in a hollowing of this area. As a result, jowls form as our facial features begin to sag.
Until recently, ideal treatment options included costly surgical procedures like facial implants or face lift surgery. But with RADIESSE® wrinkle filler, you now have an option to replenish lost volume in this area and bring back a more youthful you. Treatment with RADIESSE® takes only a few minutes, so adding back the volume that you’ve lost can be done during your lunch hour. RADIESSE® saves you time and money, with optimal, long–lasting results, making it the natural choice for addressing the pre-jowl sulcus.
