RADIESSE FILLERS & LIFT
Most people knew or heard of Hyaluronic Acid (HA) filler. But many people have not heard of Radiesse or Radiesse plus.
It 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.
It is a popular dermal filler that has been used for many years to address facial wrinkles and volume loss. It is composed of calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres suspended in a gel carrier.
It is injected into the skin. It provides immediate volume and stimulates the production of collagen. This helps to achieve long-lasting results.
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 is Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHA).
Radiesse Plus contains Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHA) molecules. These molecules start working immediately by stimulating collagen production through an inflammatory process. This is in contrast to regular hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers which degrade over time.
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?
It 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 for hand rejuvenation. With more than 50 large scale studies published, it 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, 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 it is considered one of the safest fillers in the world. However, it should never be injected into areas like the lips, under the eyes, or nose. So you should refrain from putting this 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 this safely.
All RJ CLINIC doctors are well trained to provide this treatment.
Letting untrained hands handling this filler is similar to letting a provisional driver drives a Ferrari.
WHAT IS RADIESSE LIFT?
Radiesse Lift is an advanced version of Radiesse application that specifically targets sagging skin and provides a lifting effect. It is designed to address moderate to severe wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds and marionette lines.
Radiesse Lift contains calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres. This concentration is higher than that of Radiesse. As a result, it is able to provide increased lifting and tightening of the skin.
RADIESSE VS ELLANSE
Now let's compare Radiesse with Ellanse, another dermal filler that is gaining popularity in the aesthetic industry.
Radiesse: It consists of calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres.
Ellanse: It is composed of polycaprolactone microspheres.
Mechanism of Action:
Radiesse: The calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres provide immediate volume, while also stimulating collagen production for long-term results.
Ellanse: The polycaprolactone microspheres provide immediate volume, similar to other fillers. However, they also stimulate collagen synthesis, resulting in gradual tissue regeneration.
Duration of Results:
Radiesse: The effects of Radiesse can last up to 2 years, depending on individual factors.
Ellanse: The duration of Ellanse results varies depending on the specific variant used. It offers different longevity options, including 1 year, 2 years, 3 years, and 4 years.
Radiesse is a popular treatment for facial rejuvenation. It can be used to fill deep wrinkles, enhance cheekbones, and add volume to the back of hands.
Ellanse: It is also used for facial rejuvenation, treating nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and enhancing facial contours. Additionally, it can be used for non-surgical nose reshaping and improving the appearance of aging hands.
Radiesse: It stimulates the production of collagen, which helps to restore volume and improve skin texture and elasticity over time.
Ellanse: It not only provides immediate volume but also stimulates collagen production for gradual tissue regeneration, resulting in improved skin quality.
Safety and Side Effects:
Both are generally considered safe when administered by a trained professional. However, dermal fillers may cause side effects. These include redness, swelling, bruising, and itching at the injection site. These side effects are usually temporary and resolve on their own.
It's important to note that the choice between Radiesse and Ellanse depends on individual needs, treatment goals, and the recommendations of a qualified healthcare provider. It is essential to consult with our medical professional before undergoing any cosmetic procedure. The professional can evaluate your specific situation and provide personalized advice.
Radiesse and Ellanse are effective dermal fillers. They provide immediate volume. Additionally, they stimulate collagen production for long-term results.
In conclusion, these fillers offer effective, long-lasting results. While Radiesse is known for its lifting and volumizing effects, Ellanse offers different longevity options and tissue regeneration benefits. Consulting with a healthcare professional will help determine the most suitable option for your desired outcome.
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.
