As skin ages, it gradually decreases its production of a key compound known as collagen. Collagen plays an important role in skin structure and elasticity. Younger skin tends to have higher levels of collagen; as these levels decrease, the likelihood of developing fine lines and wrinkles goes up. Facial volume also tends to go down. All of these factors combine to cause a person to look older than they might prefer.
At Body Sculpting Med Spa, we have many solutions for patients looking to fight the aging process. One popular option is RADIESSE®, an advanced injectable filler. RADIESSE uses a gel solution with calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres to instantly improve volume and minimize fine lines and wrinkles. But it continues to work over time, encouraging the body to produce more of its own collagen. Eventually the microspheres are metabolized, leaving behind restored collagen.
RADIESSE is also FDA-approved for the treatment of volume loss on the back of the hands. Over time, the skin on your hands can become thin and loose. RADIESSE can instantly restore lost volume, as well as minimize the visibility of veins and other subdermal structures.
Treatment with RADIESSE is easy and comfortable, with appointments taking less than an hour. Patients see results instantly that can last for up to a year or more. Body Sculpting Med Spa is happy to administer RADIESSE in New York, New York, to restore the appearance of both face and hands. To learn more, please contact our friendly team at 212-989-6555 today.
