Radiesse™ injections can help reduce the appearance of age lines on the face. The treatment offers long-lasting results and is an excellent solution for patients who are interested in non-surgical rejuvenation. Dr. Ben Light performs Radiesse™ injections himself at his practice in Decatur, Alabama and has helped many patients turn back the hands of time with this popular treatment.
Radiesse™ injections are different from Restylane® and other treatments because they contain calcium hydroxylapatite, a substance that stimulates the production of new collagen. Collagen is the protein that gives skin its structure; as the body ages it produces less collagen and skin begins to wrinkle and sag. By helping the body replenish its supply of this important protein, Radiesse™ treatment helps stimulate the production of new, healthy skin cells and creates a smooth, youthful-looking appearance.
In addition to increasing the body’s supply of collagen, Radiesse acts as a dermal filler for the first few months after treatment. The injections add volume to the skin to create smooth, youthful-looking contours that may be noticed immediately.Dr. Ben Light, M.D.
In addition to increasing the body’s supply of collagen, Radiesse™ acts as a dermal filler for the first few months after treatment. The injections add volume to the skin to create smooth, youthful-looking contours that may be noticed immediately. After three months, the Radiesse™ gel is absorbed harmlessly into the skin and the benefits of the new collagen production begin to take effect. Because Radiesse™ injections stimulate the on-going production of collagen, results can last for up to a year or more.
