How long does Radiesse dermal filler last?Posted on May 25, 2019
Today, dermal filler injectable procedures for facial skin rejuvenation, such as Radiesse, currently rank as the second most sought-after non-surgical cosmetic dermatology treatments in the United States after Botox.
Radiesse is a powerful dermal filler injectable treatment which has been approved by the FDA to add temporary volume to depleted facial sites and mitigate the effects of aging on the skin.
The primary ingredient in Radiesse is calcium hydroxylapatite. This component distinguishes Radiesse from various other dermal fillers as well as provides longer-lasting outcomes with a single in-office treatment.
In addition to providing sustainable results, Radiesse dermal filler injection also produces natural-looking results by filling in deep wrinkles and creases in various facial sites.
Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. David Kim provides Radiesse facial filler injections to patients in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, and surrounding locations.
Calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) is a synthetic but fully biocompatible component that has been used safely and effectively by medical professionals for over two decades. The Radiesse gel comprises microspheres of 25 to 45 diameter CaHA microns suspended within it.
This gel is delivered beneath the skin using small injections. Radiesse provides facial enhancement by reducing the appearance of moderate to severe facial folds and creases. Patients experiencing facial volume loss due to disease or other reasons may find Radiesse to be beneficial as well.
Radiesse soft tissue filler offers long-lasting improvements in various facial areas to treat issues such as glabellar lines and nasolabial folds.
It also provides sub-dermal support to regions such as brows, tear troughs, nose, perioral area, chin, lips, and marionette lines. Additionally, it is an effective treatment to soften the appearance of saucerized acne scars.
Sustainability of Outcomes
A single Radiesse dermal fuller med spa treatment can offer anti-aging outcomes to patients that can sustain for up to two years.
A standard dermal filler injectable treatment consisting of hyaluronic acid usually offers outcomes that can sustain from six months to a year.
In comparison, Radiesse results can last for a longer duration as it contains CaHA microspheres, which allow the volume from the procedure to last for an extended duration.
Upon being injected as tiny microspheres, Radiesse creates a type of scaffolding that encourages the development of new tissue which resembles the surrounding tissue.
Once the CaHA particles reach the deeper dermis layers, it prompts the generation of fresh collagen and elastin fibers. Radiesse develops this new fibroblastic in-growth without calcification. This provides the patient with long-lasting and natural results.
Fresh collagen production creates fullness in the deep tissue layers within the treated sites. This provides patients with the dual benefits of immediate volumizing and generation of fresh collagen over time, making Radiesse results last longer than standard dermal fillers.
Touch-ups with Radiesse
Radiesse provides another advantage, which is that the unused contents of a gel syringe can be recapped and stored for use on the same patient at a later date. This material can be delivered to the patient within the next three months.
