What is HyperDilute Radiesse®?
Radiesse® was originally approved as a dermal filler. Unlike most other fillers made of hyaluronic acid, Radiesse® is made of calcium hydroxyapatite, one of the materials that makes up bone. It also promotes the development of collagen.
Because collagen makes up the structural support network of the skin, it adds fullness and natural lift. Radiesse® as a filler works to promote intense collagen development, helping to fill in lines, wrinkles, and areas of lost volume.
HyperDilute Radiesse® has been diluted from its original form. In this form, usually diluted with sterile saline, the material does not provide the immediate filler action that it does in full strength, but it does improve skin tightness and firmness all over the body by stimulating collagen.
How does HyperDilute Radiesse® Work?
Each provider has a preferred level of dilution for certain parts of the body. When Radiesse® is injected under the skin of the face or body, it provides an immediate boost of fullness, but the body will absorb these molecules, leaving the collagen they built.
After treatment, when the Radiesse® has been absorbed, the collagen will remain for months, continuing to provide lift and tightening of the skin even after the effect of the filler has faded.
HyperDilute Radiesse® can be used for its collagen-building, skin-tightening properties without the initial filler effect. Injected into areas like the face, neck, chest, arms, legs, abdomen, and buttocks, it causes the skin to build new collagen. This new collagen causes the skin to tighten and become firmer.
