Starting in your 20’s, you lose collagen and cannot produce it as efficiently. This causes the skin to become thin and appear to sag. Wrinkles are more prominent and your skin doesn’t bounce back as easily. Injectable biostimulators enhance your own natural collagen, giving you the most natural results, without adding volume. This is a great preventative treatment and for rejuvenation of aging skin.
HyperdiluteRadiesse is a calcium based dermal filler in a gel carrier, which is thinned out with saline. It is injected under the skin in a smooth layer. Once the liquid is absorbed, your body begins to metabolize the calcium portion, stimulating collagen production.
Commonly treated areas are lower face, neck, chest and hands, but can be used almost anywhere on the body.
PRF is obtained from drawing your blood and extracting the red blood cells. The plasma portion contains growth factors, stem cells, platelets, and fibrin, which will stimulate the healing process and cause collagen production.
PRF is appropriate for the thin skin under the eyes.
Hyperdilute Radiesse and PRF are both injected with a cannula- a small hollow tube with a blunt tip- only requiring a minimal number of needle pokes. The procedure is comfortable for most patients.
To get the most collagen and the best results, we recommend three treatments, at least 6-8 weeks apart. Maintenance treatments should be done every 12-15 months.
