As we age, we accumulate lasting memories and experiences. We gain wisdom and have meaningful relationships. However, while we may enjoy some aspects of getting older, most of us do not enjoy looking older. Dermal fillers in the form of injections can help us restore the youthful look we had in our younger days.
An effective dermal filler available today is Radiesse. It is composed of synthetic calcium hydroxylapatite in a gel composition and is indicated mostly for deep folds and wrinkles near the nose or mouth. Radiesse is not to be used on the tiny fine lines around the mouth-that is for the Hyaluronic Acids. One advantage of Radiesse is that it can last up to 2 years and was one of the first to stimulate new collagen production.
Since Radiesse is a stiff product compared to other fillers, it is also an option to non-surgically smooth out bumps on the nose as well as plump up volume on the backs of aging hands. Combined with laser treatments used to fade brown spots on the backs of the hands, Radiesse can easily take a decade off of aged hands.
