Collagen is what gives volume, flexibility and strength to healthy, young skin. As a part of the aging process, your own natural collagen breaks down, diminishing facial volume and elasticity. This loss of elasticity and volume results in wrinkles, facial lines and skin laxity, all of which rob your skin of its youthful, fresh appearance.
Dr. Jejurikar can help you restore your youthful beauty with Radiesse to replenish your skin’s lost volume. Upon injection, Radiesse immediately provides the volume and lift needed to diminish the signs of aging.
Radiesse is made from calcium hydroxyapatite, making it one of the heaviest dermal fillers available. This allows it to act as a scaffold underneath your skin by providing structure and stimulating your own natural collagen to grow. This process continues for several months, extending the initial effect.
Results after Radiesse injection typically last a year or more in most patients. Treatments usually take 15-30 minutes and require only local anesthetic. Side effects such as swelling or bruising are minimal and should fade within a few days. Results are visible immediately after the injection and can last for months or years, although the procedure can be repeated as often as you wish.
