Why Radiesse is different

Are you tired of looking tired? Sagging, wrinkled skin, sunken cheeks, and deep creases can make you look much older than you feel, or even older than you really are. At image Dermatology®, we specialize in dermal fillers. Dr. Jeanine Downie even uses them herself! If you are ready to say goodbye to wrinkles, she will recommend the best products and procedures. For exceptionally long lasting results, the best choice may be Radiesse Dermal filler. Essex Fells and Montclair residents love the convenience of less frequent maintenance appointments.

Radiesse is unique among the many available types of dermal fillers. Like other brands, it yields instant results by adding volume, erasing deep creases and plumping the skin. However, dermal fillers break down over time, and the results gradually diminish until the filler is gone. Typically, maintenance or re-treatment is needed within six to twelve months. Radiesse also breaks down gradually, but it doesn’t stop working when it is gone.

Radiesse is uniquely formulated with CaHA (calcium hydroxylapatite) microspheres in a thick gel base. These calcium microspheres provide the support and structure for collagen regeneration, through a process called neocollagenesis. Collagen is a vital part of your skin’s health and appearance providing strength, resilience, and volume. Young, healthy skin has a healthy collagen network, but as we age that network begins to break down.

Stimulating collagen growth helps restore a youthful appearance and texture to your skin. It also dramatically extends the results. Radiesse has been proven to last at least eight months to a year, and some degree of improvement is often still visible after more than two years. Treatment is safe and comfortable, with no need for allergy testing. The ingredients in Radiesse are entirely biocompatible.

Radiesse and other dermal fillers are very low risk procedures. Side effects are rare and mild; there may be slight bruising or swelling, which should fade within a few days. Beautiful, natural results require precision skill, and you couldn’t make a better choice than image Dermatology®. Dr. Jeanine Downie is one of the foremost experts on the topic, often quoted by the media. She is also a respected instructor for The American Society for Dermatologic Surgery Fillers and Injectables.
