Radiesse® is a filler and biostimulant. It is made up of calcium hydroxyapatite (CaHA) microspheres embedded in a soft gel matrix (sodium carboxymethylcellulose).
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
Radiesse® produces an immediate contouring and lifting effect due to the very viscous and elastic gel matrix. The formation of a network of firm collagen in the skin will result in a shaping and remodeling of the dermis, thus obtaining a firming of the skin and an improvement in its quality.
For skin laxity and cellulite we use diluted Radiesse. Radiesse® is injected under the dermis with a cannula.
Around 30 and up to 60 minutes (for large areas such as the thighs or butt area)
NUMBER OF SESSIONS
Depending on the degree of sagging, allow for 2 sessions approximately 1 to 2 months apart, followed by a maintenance treatment to be determined by the specialist.
The side effects are very mild, slight redness and swelling at most.
The filling and lifting effect are immediate, while the effect on skin quality will take a few weeks. (This is the case for all treatments stimulating collagen production)
