When we get older, we are experiencing loss of hydration of the skin and slow down of cells renewal process, which can cause the reduction of skin’s elasticity, firmness and flexibility. Deeper wrinkles occur, especially around the nose, mouth and sometimes on the chin. At the same time thin layer of fat under the skin, necessary to maintain its elasticity and smoothness, slowly disintegrates. This loss of capacity is particularly noticeable around zygomatic bones area, cheeks and on the outer parts of hands.
Young face has a V shape - the younger the face, the skin is firmer, contours are more distinct and it is symmetrical.
With aging V-shape is being reversed no matter how good our genes are, every type of skin eventually lose its elasticity. The proportions are changing and volume is decreasing. Cheeks and chin are slopping, and facial contour is dropping. The result: a symmetrical V shape is being reversed and from now on you can tell our age by looking at our face, no matter how young we feel.
The V effect improves the volume of the skin in order to give it a youthful appearance. Instead of reducing the individual wrinkles, your face needs a real volume improvement. Using the appropriate treatment face obtain optimal V-shape and all of the lines will be reduced.
Radiesse filler is based on calcium hydroxyapatite and suspended in a gel transporter consisted of water and glycerol. The formulation not only corrects wrinkles and facial contours (immediately after injection) but also stimulates the skin cells (fibroblasts) for collagen production, which in turn causes skin thickening and improve its elasticity and firmness. After it is injected deeply into the skin, the gel is absorbed and replaced by newly formed collagen fibers but calcium hydroxyapatite remains at the place of injection. This process continues for several months after the treatment and the lasts about 12-18 months.
Calcium hydroxyapatite has a high safety profile and has been used in medicine for more than 25 years. It is completely biodegradable – it is absorbed naturally. It is characterized by remarkable stability. High temperature, UV or laser treatments do not reduce the effect of the treatment.
