As skin ages, it loses thickness, strength, and elasticity. One major factor is the fact that the natural collagen in our bodies also breaks down, diminishing the healthy volume, flexibility, and strength that is present in young skin. This can and does result in lines and wrinkles, which robs the face of its youthful, fresh appearance.
Radiesse® is used to provide volume to various facial features. To rejuvenate the face, it can be used to immediately provide volume and fill sagging cheeks, smooth heavy smile lines, and restore facial features (such as the jawline) that have changed with age. At the Chow Center for Facial Plastic Surgery, it is frequently used as part of the Liquid Facelift, together with Botox®, Juvederm®, and Sculptra®.
Radiesse® can also be used to enhance features of the face, providing a nonsurgical rhinoplasty (nasal reshaping), cheek enhancement (for higher cheek bones), or a nonsurgical chin enhancement. These can be used safely and effectively in lieu of surgery or as a “test drive” to see what the nose, chin, or cheeks might look like before choosing to have a permanent change.
