Radiesse®


Restore Collagen and Elastin for a Youthful Face and Hands in NY

Radiesse® at NY’s Hudson Dermatology is an injectable treatment that restores the skin’s natural vitality and radiance by helping stimulate the natural production of two essential proteins: collagen and elastin. When we’re young, our bodies naturally produce these proteins in abundance, resulting in strong, healthy, beautiful skin. But a natural consequence of aging is that the body produces less elastin and collagen, causing the formation of wrinkles and folds. Certain factors like sun damage can accelerate this process—but unfortunately, it happens to everyone.

Radiesse® is composed of calcium hydroxylapatite or CaHA. The board-certified doctors and physician assistants at Hudson Dermatology can deliver this unique formula to targeted areas of the face and hands to help stimulate the production of collagen and elastin. With a simple, safe procedure that can often be completed in less than an hour, women and men alike can enjoy results that can last for up to two years.

How Does Radiesse® Work?

As a popular injectable filler, Radiesse® contains some simple elements: hydrogen, oxygen, and carbon. When these components are put together in specific ways and injected into the lower layers of the skin, they act as a platform that provides support and structure. This creates space for the body to produce new collagen, which is the protein that helps strengthen the skin and keep it flexible, in addition to providing youthful elasticity.

While the calcium hydroxyapatite supports the skin, adding a more youthful volume visible right away in the targeted area, the continued production of collagen ensures long-lasting and natural results. A single Radiesse® injectable treatment at New York’s Hudson Dermatology should produce pleasing, youthful volume as long as the increased collagen production continues.

Because the unique formula of Radiesse® triggers renewed collagen and elastin production, patients can expect to see continued positive results even after the gel has been absorbed by the body. Essentially, Radiesse® capitalizes on the body’s natural ability to restore and maintain itself—with a little help from the knowledgeable injectors at Hudson Dermatology.

What Areas Does Radiesse® Treat?

Radiesse® injectable treatments primarily focus on two areas: the face and hands. More specifically, your Hudson Dermatology injector can target several different types of lines that form in the lower section of the face, including smile lines (also known as nasolabial folds), oral commissures (lines at the corners of the mouth), marionette lines, pre-jowl folds, and chin wrinkles. The cheeks and temples are also commonly treated.

While the face might be the first thing people consider when it comes to the aging process, it’s not the only highly visible area that can show signs of age. We use our hands to communicate and in countless other ways as we interact with the world. The Hudson Dermatology team can use Radiesse® to give the hands a youthful boost by restoring lost volume and minimizing visible veins and tendons.

Do All Injectables Work Like Radiesse®?

Some injectable fillers—like JUVEDERM® and Restylane®—have a hyaluronic acid base that adds volume, but does not focus on also stimulating collagen. Results from these cosmetic treatments can last months to years, restoring volume to the mid-face and reducing creases around the mouth and nose.

Other injectable treatments work by relaxing active muscles that etch crow’s feet and other lines into the facial skin. BOTOX® and Dysport® are known as neuromodulators for the way they reduce muscle contractions by disrupting the typical transmission of specific messages via the nervous system.
