Lines, wrinkles and creases in the facial skin are signs that your skin is losing elasticity and volume from lower levels of collagen. While aging cannot be stopped, the noticeable effects can be minimized. Facial fillers offer a quick and safe option to add volume to smooth the lines and wrinkles of aging. One option we provide at Avance Plastic Surgery Institute in Reno/Tahoe, NV, is Radiesse injections, an alternative to hyaluronic acid filler injections.
Collagen helps the skin appear firmer and more youthful. The production dwindles as you get older, leaving your skin thin and less elastic. Most facial fillers are designed to plump under the skin to replace collagen and fat. This is an effective tool to smooth lines and wrinkles or to plump the lips immediately, but it does not address the lost collagen in the skin. Other facial fillers or treatments only stimulate collagen but do not offer quick results. Radiesse is the first facial filler to do both by adding immediate volume and stimulating collagen production for more youthful skin.
Radiesse Wrinkle Reduction
Radiesse injections contain a gel with calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres. These particles add volume for instant wrinkle reduction, but they will dissipate and dissolve. The body absorbs the gel over time, but the CaHA also stimulates collagen production. As the body absorbs Radiesse, the volume is replaced with natural collagen. The wrinkles and lines are smoothed, and the aging process is slowed during treatment. The results last a year or longer before additional Radiesse injections are needed.
If you want instant wrinkle reduction with long-lasting skin improvement from increased collagen levels, Radiesse injections may be right for you. To learn more, contact us at Avance Plastic Surgery Institute to schedule an informative skin consultation at our clinic near Lake Tahoe, NV.
