Collagen is very important because it gives our skin the elasticity to keep us looking youthful. As we age, the collagen that is naturally present in our bodies begins to break down. This process can cause the facial skin to wrinkle and the cheeks to appear hollow – which makes us look older than we are.
Radiesse is an FDA-approved injectable filler that can restore the skin’s youthful appearance by providing volume and lift. It is comprised of calcium-based microspheres similar to the minerals that are found in the body. Radiesse also stimulates our own natural collagen to grow. It is especially effective when used in the cheek, jawline and chin areas.
Results are immediate and can last up to a year or more, depending on each person’s situation.
Contact Dr. Stephen Perkins’s office to schedule a consultation to see if Radiesse is an appropriate solution for you.
