What is Hyperdilute Radiesse?
Radiesse is a filler that contains calcium-derived microspheres which immediately replenish lost volume at an injection site. These microspheres plump the skin and provide support and elasticity by creating a microscopic lattice under the skin, stimulating the body’s natural collagen production process. Over time, the microspheres are reabsorbed by the body, leaving only new collagen behind to fill in the lattice-like structure and restore a more youthful appearance to the skin.
By hyperdiluting Radiesse, we can use this filler to smooth and plump thin, crepey skin rather than to add volume. Hyperdilute Radiesse can be injected just about anywhere we’d like to see improvement in the appearance of thin, crepey skin. Results are seen immediately and, because this injectable stimulates collagen growth, results can improve more over time. While the neck and décolleté are popular treatment areas, injections may be performed on the cheeks, arms, thighs, and buttocks.
How much to treatments cost?
Treatment costs will vary based on the severity and size of the treatment area. An in-person consultation is needed for individualized pricing.
Would I Make a Good Candidate for Hyperdilute Radiesse Treatment?
Almost anyone who has areas of crepey skin where they’d like to see some improvement could be a good candidate for hyperdilute Radiesse. An in person consultation with your treatment provider is best for determining eligibility.
How is Hyperdilute Radiesse Administered?
A cannula is used to deposit a thin film of product under the skin. Cannulas are often more comfortable than needles and are less likely to cause bruising and swelling of the treatment area. Depending on the severity of the area being treated, up to 3 treatment sessions one month apart may be needed to achieve desired results.
How Long Will my Hyperdilute Radiesse Treatment Results Last?
These treatments may last 18-24 months.
