Biostimulators (Radiesse) achieve the same goals as dermal fillers which are a nonsurgical treatment option for people who are looking to smoothen out deep wrinkles, facial folds, restore volume and enhance contour/sculpt facial features. Biostimulators are fillers that are made of biodegradable calcium spheres that acts as a scaffold under the skin stimulating and providing structure simultaneously. Your own collagen and elastin is stimulated to the site making this filler last longer. Results can often be seen immediately. Biostimulators also have the ability to physically lift the lower face when positioned correctly. Generally, biostimulators last 12 months or more in many clients depending on product type and metabolism. Biostimulator fillers are suitable for anyone over the legal age; typically, with the aging process and genetics many people will have a loss of volume and fullness due to aging, sun exposures, and other chronic conditions etc. (A full health history will be obtained for assessment of contraindications)

Advantages of Radiesse vs Dermal Fillers

Radiesse is a dermal filler made of calcium hydroxylapatite, a synthetic form of a mineral found in bones. It is commonly used to add volume to the face, particularly in the cheeks, jawline, and chin. Hyaluronic acid fillers, such as Juvederm and Restylane, are also commonly used for facial volumization, but there are some advantages to using Radiesse over hyaluronic acid fillers. One advantage of Radiesse is that it is longer-lasting than hyaluronic acid fillers. Radiesse can last up to a year or more, while hyaluronic acid fillers typically anywhere from 3-12 months. This means that patients will need fewer touch-up treatments if they choose Radiesse.

Another advantage of Radiesse is that it stimulates collagen production in the skin, which can lead to more natural-looking results. Collagen is a protein that gives skin its elasticity and firmness, and as we age, our body produces less collagen. By stimulating collagen production, Radiesse can help to improve the overall appearance of the skin and provide more long-term benefits.

Additionally, Radiesse is also a good option for deep wrinkles and folds as it is thicker than hyaluronic acid fillers, it's also more effective at filling deep wrinkles, and can be used to reshape and contour the face. It's important to note that Radiesse is a medical-grade product and should only be administered by a trained and licensed practitioner, as it carries risks such as infection, nerve damage or even injury to the blood vessels if not done properly.
