Collagen gives the skin volume, strength and flexibility. Unfortunately, as we age, collagen breaks down, reducing volume and elasticity, and causing wrinkles and facial lines.
Radiesse is an injectable filler designed to restore volume and stimulate natural collagen growth. It effectively reduces the appearance of facial folds and wrinkles, and can be used for lip augmentation.
Radiesse consists of calcium hydroxylapatite, suspended in gel (carboxymethycellulose). Calcium hydroxylapatite is a normal component of human bone, and has been used in prosthetic implants for facial, dental and orthopedic surgery for a long time. Because of this, Radiesse should not cause a chronic inflammatory or immune system response.
Radiesse is a safe and effective procedure that provides long-lasting results. Dr. Richard E. Stiefler from Colorado West Dermatology in Grand Junction, Colorado is highly trained in the art of injections and does all of our Botox and skin filler injections.
