Radiesse Plus - the filler that lifts
Made of ions of phosphate and calcium which occur naturally in our body, Radiesse® Plus is a very powerful lifting filler that stimulates the naturally-occurring collagen beneath your skin, softens wrinkles and helps skin develop new collagen to achieve lifting and tightening effects.
Through Radiesse® Plus injections, we have seen great improvement for facial rejuvenation, neck lines, hand wrinkles and also body skin tightening.
Radiesse® Plus works immediately upon injection. This filler initially does the work of filling in the facial volume loss. As time goes on, the Calcium Hydroxyapatite (CaHa) stimulates your natural collagen, allowing your skin to produce more of its own filler. The hydrogen, oxygen and carbon in the gel help to create a structure that mimics connective tissues.
Eventually, the CaHa absorbs back into your body, leaving your collagen it its place. Because of the science behind Radiesse®, treatment results can last for well over a year, or even up to two years for some people.
Depending on the number of syringes you require, the injection typically takes 30 to 60 minutes.
Generally, downtime is minimal. You could go back to daily activities immediately. In rare instances, you may get mild bruising and discomfort a few hours to days after the injection.
Radiesse® Plus result would last 12 to 18 months. However, the active ingredient in Radiesse® Plus has been shown to help stimulate collagen production, making your skin tighter and more lifted.
Radiesse® is made of opaque calcium hydroxyapatite (CaHA) gel microspheres that offers bio-stimulating effect. It works as collagen, elastin and fibroblast stimulator when placed in the fat layer of the face or body. Radiesse helps restore facial volume loss and at the same time, tighten the skin.
HA fillers, on the other hand, are made from hyaluronic acid, which is a clear, gel-like substance that also occurs naturally in the human body. HA fillers are formulated to treat weinkles and skin folds in different areas of the face. Some also increase fullness in areas like the lips and hollows under the eyes. At Clique, combination of several HA filler types is vital to achieve natural outcome.
Radiesse offers instant results. Further improvement could be noticed 5 to 7 weeks after the treatment.
