Radiesse is a filler that contains CaHa (calcium hydroxyapatite) in a gel. Radiesse can be used to fill deeper lines and restore volume in the cheeks and chin. It has also been shown to stimulate collagen and elastin-proteins that provide firmness and elasticity to the skin.
Full Strength Radiesse– Radiesse can be used without dilution in the cheeks, jawline an chin. It is wonderful for providing contour and projection in those areas. It is a great filler for men, who typically have thicker skin and require a more robust filler to restore volume. It is also a great filler for those who have a fuller face and want more definition.
Hyperdilute Radiesse– is a technique where Radiesse is thinned out using saline and the numbing medication lidocaine. Wherever this thinned out product is injected it stimulates collagen and elastin resulting in firmer skin. It can be mixed with other biostimulators like PRP to really boost collagen and elastin.
One of the best areas to use hyperdilute Radiesse is in the neck. The neck contains more elastin than the face and it is a delicate area that is more susceptible to scarring from overaggressive procedures. Hyperdilute Radiesse can be injected quite safely using a cannula resulting in an improvement in crepey skin and tightening the skin.
Areas that can be treated with Hyperdilute Radiesse include:
