Get lasting, natural-looking results with a uniquely formulated “collagen stimulator”: Radiesse® & Hyperdilute Radiesse At drs skincare Hamilton, ON
Calcium is essential for healthy bones and teeth. In the skilled hands of our board-certified dermatologist at drs skincare, Dr. Rahul Shukla, this mineral may also be used to promote the production of another vital substance: collagen.
An introduction to Radiesse®
Radiesse® is a particularly powerful member of a family of nonsurgical, cosmetic products available at our office in Hamilton, Ontario – dermal or soft tissue fillers.
Unlike other types of filler products, including hyaluronic acid-based ones (like Juvéderm), Radiesse® is also characterized as a “collagen stimulator.” It is uniquely formulated to trigger collagen production and get exceptionally long-lasting results.
The “magic” of Radiesse® is in its engineering; this filler is designed with CaHa. Calcium hydroxylapatite is beads of calcium, similar to naturally occurring minerals in the teeth, skeletal bone, and other parts of the body. By suspending the CaHa in a gel, Dr. Shukla can inject these calcium microspheres into areas that could use the additional boost. As the calcium microspheres or beads are absorbed and metabolized by your body, they restore and leave behind only new, firming collagen.
Common areas of injection include:
- Back of hands
Hyperdilute radiesse is a form of radiesse we frequently incorporate into treatment plans as it triggers collagen production gradually adding volume to the affected area and improves skin quality. Hyperdilute radiesse can often be injected to loose or wrinkled areas of the body including the neck, chest, arms, legs, buttocks and above the knees.
Whereas the results from other dermal fillers typically last for around six months, Radiesse® has been scientifically shown to produce sustained results for up to a year or longer.
