Most people knew or heard of Hyaluronic Acid (HA) filler. But many people have not heard of Radiesse or Radiesse plus.
Radiesse is a type of dermal filler used by physician to enhance or rejuvenate the skin.
It is manufactured in Germany under the Merz Aesthetic company.
HA FILLERS VS RADIESSE PLUS
The difference lies in the molecular structure between two fillers. Radiesse Plus is not made of Hyaluronic Acid. The main active component of Radiesse Plus is Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHA). While normal HA fillers slowly degrades after day 1 of injection, the CaHA molecules in Radiesse Plus starts working by stimulating collagen under our skin through an inflammatory process. In long run, due to its collagen-stimulating capability, the result lasts longer than a normal HA filler. Because of better collagen framework under the skin, the skin gets a better complexion as well.
IS IT SAFE?
Radiesse has been in the market for more than a decade. With more than 7,000,000 injected worldwide, the volume speaks for itself. Technically, the CaHA molecule is 100% identical to our bone structure hence eliminating a full blown foreign body reaction/ inflammation.
Once degraded in 24 months, the Calcium molecules are being metabolised like normal Calcium in our body. US FDA is one of the strictest medical body in the world. It has approved Radiesse for face more than 5 years ago and recently approved Radiesse for hand rejuvenation. With more than 50 large scale studies published, Radiesse is one of safest filler in the world.
WHO IS THIS TREATMENT FOR?
Volume enhancement over forehead, temples, mid cheeks
Ageing and sagging face
Feature enhancement for chin, nose, lips, earlobes
Hydration fillers (skinboosters) for skin hydration
For fine lines and deep wrinkles
IS THIS TREATMENT FOR ME?
If you think you have some sagging, Radiesse Plus is for you.
If you think your skin lacks luster and glow, Radiesse Plus is for you.
If you want fuller cheeks, sharper chin, rounder forehead/temple, Radiesse Plus is for you.
If I want higher nose and fuller lips, Can I get Radiesse Plus injected?
Although Radiesse Plus is regarded as one of safest filler in the world, it is never invented to inject areas such as lips, under eye or nose. So you should refrain from putting Radiesse Plus in nose, lips and under eye.
WHO CAN DO THIS TREATMENT FOR YOU?
Only well trained doctors can handle Radiesse Plus. Because of its molecular structure differences with normal HA fillers, only doctors with adequate training and exposure can inject Radiesse safely.
Letting untrained hands handling Radiesse is similar to letting a provisional driver drives a Ferrari.
In summary, Radiesse Plus is a versatile filler giving you the filling effect, lifting effect as well as skin rejuvenation effect.
Oh Yeah!!!! The golden question.. Is it painful?
Merz is kind enough to incorporate lidocaine (pain numbing solution) in the product so with proper injection, the pain is minimal. The PLUS behind the word Radiesse means it contains some lidocaine.
