Radiesse Treatment – Calcium Hydroxylapatite Miami

Posted March 11, 2016 in Plastic Surgery

Facial wrinkles are a telltale – and unwelcome – sign of the aging process. If you’re looking for a way to fill in moderate and deeper lines and wrinkles, consider Radiesse.

What makes Radiesse treatments different from the other dermal fillers on the market? Unlike the majority of dermal fillers, Radiesse is not composed of hyaluronic acid.

Instead, it’s made of carboxymethylcellulose gel and numerous small spheres of calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA).

The body uses CaHA in its natural form to produce collagen protein, which is part of what makes skin tight, elastic, and youthful. When injected into the face in key areas, Radiesse’s synthetic CaHA helps the tissues make more collagen, resulting in wrinkle-free skin.

For more about the benefits of Radiesse, contact our office to schedule an appointment for an informative consultation. Experienced surgeon Dr. Daniel Careaga will be happy to guide you through the process.
