" Radiesse stimulates collagen production and thickens the dermis of the skin that has been damaged and thinned by aging and sun exposure. Radiesse is an excellent choice for patients who have lipoatrophy from weight loss, illness or from genetic predisposition. Radiesse is a firmer product than HA fillers and gives more correction per syringe. It is an excellent option for aging hands. "

This was just what I needed with my 25 year high school reunion approaching. I definitely will not miss it this year! Thanks Dr. Lupo ~ Tina L.
There are some benefits to be gained from a good home skin care regimen that includes moisturizers, serums, and creams. The daily application of such products can keep skin looking better by reducing fine lines and wrinkles, and minimizing discoloration. There are limitations to topical products, however. They cannot replenish volume that is lost with time. With age comes a decrease in the production of collagen and the subsequent loss of facial volume and elasticity, the effects of which may make you look older than you feel on the inside.
In order to successfully reduce the appearance of wrinkles, it is necessary to replenish what has been lost in terms of volume. The Radiesse Volumizing Filler provides the lift needed to reduce the common signs of aging that result from volume loss. This addition of volume is achieved with tiny calcium microspheres that comprise the Radiesse filler.
The uniqueness of Radiesse lies in what this filler accomplishes beneath the skin. Upon injection, the calcium microspheres rebuild the structural support needed for healthy facial contours. At the same time, the product stimulates the body’s natural production of collagen for continued improvement. Over the course of several months, Radiesse continues to work within the skin, maximizing the results accomplished from just one treatment. The results that Dr. Lupo achieves in many of her patients last a year or more.
Radiesse in administered with a very fine needle and gentle technique directly into wrinkles and folds on the face for a lifted, more defined appearance. For enhancement in the chin, cheeks, and nose, Radiesse is the ideal non-surgical treatment. This filler is also sometimes used to minimize the appearance of certain types of scarring, and to plump areas on the back of the hands to diminish the appearance of tendons and veins.
Unlike some other dermal fillers, Radiesse cannot be dissolved. The characteristics of this filler are optimal in many situations, but not all. For instance, Radiesse should not be used to augment the lips or fill small lines around the mouth. This means that application is vital to the desired outcome. The experience of the injector is important. Dr. Mary Lupo has served as an educator for dermal filler technique for many years. She understands the proper depth for injections, and helps her patients experience beautiful, natural results.
