Bring volume back to your face
Dr. LoBuono in Monmouth County, NJ uses the filler Radiesse® when patients have volume loss due to the natural effects of aging. This calcium-based filler has incredible lifting capacity and is long lasting.
What is Radiesse® Volumizing Filler?
Radiesse® is an injectable filler used to bring back facial volume. Beyond providing structural support to the skin, Radiesse® also stimulates the body to produce new collagen. Collagen and elastin are the body’s skin support proteins. This makes Radiesse® stand out from other popular fillers.
What is Radiesse® Volumizing Filler made of?
Radiesse® is made from calcium hydroxyapatite micronized granules mixed in a water-based gel. This can basically be thought of as synthetic bone structure. Since these minerals are naturally found in the human body, allergy testing of the product usually isn’t necessary. In time, your body will absorb the microspheres and gel in Radiesse®, leaving behind the body’s newly produced collagen.
What can be treated with Radiesse® Volumizing Filler?
Radiesse® is excellent for cheek augmentation and lifting of the eyebrows. It is also effective on smile lines, wrinkles on the chin, and pre-jowl sulcus.
What can I expect from a Radiesse® Volumizing Filler procedure?
Because Radiesse® has a thicker consistency and is less malleable, Dr. LoBuono mixes the anesthetic lidocaine in with the filler. This makes the 30-minute sessions comfortable. Results are immediate and last up to 18 months.
