What is Radiesse?
RADIESSE® is the first and only FDA-approved product to correct loss of volume in your hands. Radiesse can fill in aged hands and offer a more youthful hand appearance. Bucay Center for Dermatology and Aesthetics is recognized as a “Center of Excellence” in the United States for Radiesse Hands.
What is Radiesse made out of?
Many of today’s dermal fillers are based on hyaluronic acid, or HA. Radiesse, however, is formulated with calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres and it stimulates the body’s production of collagen, a naturally occurring substance that, with time, becomes depleted in the body. Many of the common signs of aging can be attributed to the breakdown of collagen, which is needed to keep skin elastic and taut.
What Radiesse corrects
The beauty of Radiesse is that this filler not only plumps lines and wrinkles, but it encourages the production of new collagen for several months.
The general intention of dermal fillers is to replace support needed for resilient, youthful skin. The supportive structures break down over time due to aging, stress, sun exposure, and lifestyle habits including smoking and even the type of makeup regularly worn.
When will I see results from Radiesse?
Radiesse goes beyond simply filling areas with depression in its encouragement of collagen production. Due to its design, the results achieved with this filler are seen over several weeks. Once achieved, results can last up to a year.
Radiesse for Hands
The hands don’t lie. Your age can easily be given away by the appearance of your hands even with a youthful face. Belotero is the first and only FDA-approved filler for hands.
Of the same family as Radiesse, Belotero is an excellent addition to our comprehensive list of anti-aging solutions.
What is Belotero?
Belotero is a non-animal, FDA-cleared hyaluronic acid filler. A smooth, gentle solution, Belotero is practical for many situations, some of which may not have responded optimally to other anti-aging treatments. The lightweight consistency of this filler makes it suitable even for superficial injections.
What Belotero corrects:
Areas commonly treated with Belotero include:
- Frown lines
- Tear troughs
- Nasolabial folds between the nose and mouth
- Marionette lines between the mouth and chin
- Smile and laugh lines
