Here at Eye and lasik Center, we not only specialize in vision but we also specialize in cosmetic injections as well. One of the injections that we are especially pleased to offer patients is called Radiesse. Unlike other fillers that are made from hyaluronic acid, Radiesse is made of a synthetic called calcium microsphere which work to add structure under the skin where it has been injected. But other than it being a non-hyaluronic acid filler, what makes Radiesse so unique?
It Can Be Used On the Hands
Do you feel like Botox and fillers have made your face more youthful, but that your hands are a dead giveaway of your true age? If so, then Radiesse may be able to help. Radiesse is the only FDA approved filler for the hands. By making strategic injections in the hands, it helps to add a more youthful tone and texture to the skin which will help you conceal your real age a little better.
It Works As a Two-Step Process
Unlike hyaluronic acid based fillers that give patients their full results after they have settled in the skin in around two weeks, Radiesse works in two steps. Once Radiesse is injected into the skin, it provides immediate volume. After the body has absorbed the gel and metabolized the calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres, it triggers a reaction in which the body produces new collagen in that area. This increased amount of natural collagen gives patients a more natural looking appearance which can last a year or longer.
If your fine lines, wrinkles, or loss of volume are getting you down, then consider getting a filler like Radiesse from our Eye and Lasik Center office. To learn more, contact our Winchendon office at (978) 297-2020.
