As we age, our own natural collagen breaks down and is diminished leading to a loss of facial volume. This lack of supportive structure underneath the skin leads to the formation of wrinkles. Injectable fillers like RADIESSE® can help restore a firmer, youthful look by adding lost volume while promoting the increased production of collagen for continued improvements in our New York patients.
Please don’t hesitate to contact us online today or call 212-535-3088 if you’re ready to learn more about smoothing away deep wrinkles with RADIESSE®. Dr. Michele S. Green, a board certified NYC dermatologist, practices the latest techniques at the forefront of skin care to give you the look that you deserve.
How RADIESSE® Helps
RADIESSE® is an injectable filler that’s composed of calcium hydroxyapatite, which replenishes the lost collagen under your skin. Using a patented microsphere technology, each injection starts a process called collagenesis, which stimulates the body to produce new collagen and encourages collagen growth around the injection site. At the same time, the microspheres themselves provide immediate volume to fill in visible deep lines and wrinkles.
Dr. Green will evaluate your facial anatomy during consultation and will discuss with you how RADIESSE® injections may complement your existing skincare regimen. Each injection can be adjusted to compensate for the changes that occur in your face over time for beautiful results that bring out the best in your face at any age.
Your first treatment should take only a few minutes, and you can immediately resume your normal daily routine and activities. There’s no downtime, and there’s also very little chance of side effects since calcium hydroxyapatite is a substance that occurs naturally within the body.
Upon injection, your skin cells grow around the calcium hydroxyapaite particles. RADIESSE® provides the immediate volume that is needed and under the skin, like a scaffold allowing your own natural collagen to grow. This process of collagenesis continues long after your initial treatment; the results of injections typically last many months to a year in most patients.
RADIESSE® is safely absorbed by your body over time and requires no allergy testing. The results are soft and pliable for very natural looking results. After your treatment, you should look refreshed and rejuvenated, with a marked improvement in your appearance. In some cases, Dr. Green may include additional injectables at our New York practice, like BOTOX® Cosmetic, for more comprehensive results.
