Although many dermal fillers are made with hyaluronic acid, there are also non-hyaluronic acid fillers available. Non-hyaluronic acid fillers work differently than other dermal fillers. Instead of attracting water to the sub-dermal layers of your skin, these fillers work by stimulating collagen production from the inside out. At Launa Stone in Calabasas, CA, we know that fillers like Radiesse are good non-hyaluronic acid filler options for many patients.
What Is Radiesse?
Radiesse is a filler formulated with calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres, which increase the activity of fibroblasts in the skin. When fibroblasts are activated, these skin-renewing cells produce collagen and elastin at higher levels. With increased collagen and elastin in the skin, the appearance of lines and wrinkles smooths out and your skin appears much more youthful.
Where Can This Filler Be Used?
Radiesse in Calabasas has a firm, yet subtle texture that allows it to be used on multiple areas of the face and body. It’s common for this dermal filler to be used on the nasolabial folds, the jowls, chin wrinkles, and even the back of the hands. By restoring the volume of the skin in these areas with natural collagen production, you can virtually erase visible signs of aging.
What Results Can You Expect?
The results of this dermal filler are visible immediately since the filler increases the volume of the skin. These results will improve as the microspheres interact with the fibroblast cells in your skin and as new collagen is produced in the sub-dermal layers of your skin. Most people can expect results that last for around two years in the face or up to six months on the back of the hands.
Who Are Good Candidates?
This filler is ideal for those who have moderate signs of aging around the nose, mouth, and cheeks. Sometimes, this filler can also be used on horizontal forehead wrinkles, smile lines, and crow’s feet. The best way to determine if you are a candidate for this filler is to attend a consultation appointment so we can examine your areas of aging concern.
