As we get older, hollow regions under the cheekbones and near the chin can become more pronounced. These obvious signs of aging can also make us appear tired, older, and stressed out. Soft-tissue fillers such as Radiesse can restore volume around these hollowed areas and, ultimately, restore the contours and smoothness of our face.
Unlike the soft-tissue fillers that contain hyaluronic acid, Radiesse is a gel solution containing numerous calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres. This solution is injected into targeted areas underneath the patient’s skin. These relatively small spheres lift the skin like pillars. This continues to volumize the face over time by promoting collagen growth for several months after the initial treatment.
