Radiesse for Collagen Regeneration
Radiesse is an injectable collagen stimulator. It is made of calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres, which are suspended in a gel-like substance. When injected into the skin, Radiesse adds immediate volume and provides a scaffolding that supports generation of the body’s natural collagen.
Unlike Sculptra, which stimulates collagen production over time, Radiesse works by immediately filling in wrinkles and folds. The effects of Radiesse can last up to 12 to 18 months, depending on the individual.
Another difference between Sculptra and Radiesse are the areas where they are typically used. Sculptra is commonly used to restore volume to the cheeks, temples, chin, jawline, knees and buttocks while Radiesse is often used to treat hands. Hyperdilute Radiesse can be utilized to treat sagging and loose skin in areas such as the neck, arms, knees and decollete.
Overall, both Sculptra and Radiesse are effective treatments for facial volume loss and wrinkles, but they work in different ways. The team at Lennox Aesthetics will provide the best recommendation to achieve the results you desire.
