Radiesse is made of Calcium Hydroxylapatite microspheres that provide an immediately smoothed look once injected but then continue to work by stimulating collagen and elastin production. This biostimulant effect helps tighten the skin and improve its long term appearance. Eventually, they are absorbed by your body, leaving only natural collagen in place.
Also, unlike fillers, we may do a series of treatments to reach the desired result. This is because the desired result is the natural growth or your own collagen and elastin. Treatments are spaced 6 weeks apart.
