Cellulite is a frustrating skin condition affecting the vast majority of woman. In fact, by some estimates nearly 90% of women are impacted by cellulite to varying degrees at some point in time. This undesired dimpling of the skin may affect women of any age and body type. In the past various “energy” type of treatments have provided some success. However, they often requiring several visits with temporary results.
Fortunately we have a better alternative. Radiesse®, a Calcium Hydroxylapatite, filler offers safe long-lasting results with no downtime. Expertly injected, Radiesse ® fills out the dimples and divots creating smooth volume while at the same time promoting collagen creation which adds firmness and tightens the skin for a smooth long lasting results that enhance the tone, quality and firmness of the skin.
What is Cellulite?
Your skin has multiple layers. The epidermis is the surface layer. This layer protects the dermis, or underlying layer, from everyday exposures. The dermis is where our sweat glands, hair follicles, and connective tissue reside. Beneath those skin layers is the hypodermis where the fat and connective tissue resides. The dimpled appearance of cellulite occurs when fat beneath the skin pushes through the connective tissues, causing the visible dimples and divots. Not our preferred look.
How Does Radiesse Treat Cellulite?
While many of the available dermal fillers are made of hyaluronic acid, Radiesse® is made of Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHa) with microspheres which strengthens the structure of your skin. In fact, CaHa’s ability to smoothen skin makes it a well-known treatment for scarring such as keloid and acne scars. This makes Radiesse® an ideal option for cellulite treatment.
The Radiesse cellulite treatment takes 15-30 minutes to complete and requires no downtime. Our board-certified practitioners will use a needle or cannula containing the filler to break up the connective tissues where fat has bulged through and inject Radiesse into the area to add volume that smoothens the skin and gets rid of the dimples and divots.
The CaHa contained in Radiesse also stimulates collagen production. Collagen is the key for youthful, taut skin. Unfortunately we naturally produce less collagen with age. So, Radieese® produces the immediate result from filling the dimples and divots as a filler while simultaneously providing the long lasting results that follow with the creation of new collagen in your skin. It is truly an ideal treatment for long lasting results and the elimination of visible cellulite.
Of course we use Radiesse every day to treat various areas of the face for reduction of wrinkles and volume creation between the brows, around the mouth and nose as well as volume restoration in the cheeks. In fact, we have great success using this unique filler for hand rejuvenation.
