As a dermal filler, Radiesse has been around for many years – approved by the FDA in 2006 to treat nasolabial folds and other areas of the face by restoring lost volume and correcting facial wrinkles, and is frequently used to rejuvenate the face and hands. Now, however, dermatologists are also using Radiesse in a unique way – thinning it out and diluting it with saline or lidocaine (thinning it out makes it more spreadable to treat larger areas) and injecting it more superficially into areas where the skin is showing signs of sagging and/or looseness. Hyperdilute Radiesse can not only be used on the face but on the neck, chest, arms, abdomen, legs and buttocks.
Radiesse works by encouraging your body’s natural collagen production process – adding volume to the skin while also improving overall skin texture. In its hyperdiluted form, Hyperdilute Radiesse gradually tightens and thickens skin to help improve skin quality, texture and firmness to create smoother, firmer and younger-looking skin – and can help those wanting to treat crepey skin and skin laxity – as well as areas of cellulite.
