While aging is a natural process, not everyone ages in the same way or at the same time. Depending on genetics and lifestyle, some women and men may notice the signs sooner than others. At-home products such as creams, serums, moisturizers or masks may help reduce fine lines, wrinkles or brown spots, but these products can’t replenish the loss of volume in the skin. As part of the aging process, natural collagen breaks down diminishing facial volume, elasticity and strength – all of which diminishes the skin’s youthful, fresh appearance.
Ideal wrinkle reduction is achieved by replenishing your skin’s lost volume. Upon injection, RADIESSEÂ® Volumizing Filler immediately provides the volume and lift needed to diminish the signs of aging because of the calcium-based microspheres and gel that comprise the product. But what’s unique about RADIESSE is that it acts as a scaffold under the skin, providing structure and stimulating your own natural collagen to grow. This process continues for several months, which extends the initial effect of the filler. Best of all, the natural results are clinically proven to last a year or more in many patients, which is why the Lupo Center chooses RADIESSE to achieve long-lasting facial rejuvenation.
Radiesse is a safe, next generation dermal filler that uniquely gives volume correction immediately, as well as delayed collagen stimulation for lasting results. This product is stiffer than other fillers, so Dr. Lupo finds it beneficial for men and older women because it provides more structural lift.
Radiesse is typically injected into the nasolabial folds, the marionette fold (the fold that goes from the mouth corner to the jaw), the pre-jowl sulcus (where the chin meets the lateral jaw line), and along the jaw line to provide lift and definition. Radiesse is the optimal filler for non-surgical enhancements and augmentations to a patient’s nose, cheeks or chin. It can also be used for lipoatrophy (localized loss of fat tissue), total face filling and to reduce the appearance of some scarring. It should not be injected in lips, as lumping is common in this area.
Finally, hands, just as much as the face, show signs of aging when volume is loss. Radiesse is the superior filler to plump up the backs of aging hands, so that veins and tendons are less noticeable.
Radiesse is not able to be dissolved, so it is important that the injector be experienced with this filler and understand the proper depth for injection as well proper injection technique. Dr Lupo mixes anesthetic with this filler to provide greater comfort to her patients.
