FDA Approves Next-Generation Radiesse® for Treatment of Facial Wrinkles and Folds
Kahului, Maui, Hawaii . A longer-lasting cosmetic filler called Radiesse has been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and is now available at Aloha Dermatology and Laser Center for the treatment of facial wrinkles and folds, such as the nasolabial folds. Leading Kahului Dermatologyist Dr. Micki Ly reports that only Radiesse has advanced calcium-based microsphere technology that both restores volume and promotes the growth of the body’s own collagen. She enthusiastically embraces the next-generation product, citing its long-term cosmetic benefits that produce a youthful beauty to the aging face without surgery, downtime or the risks of permanent implants.
"Radiesse is a better choice for patients who are ready for the next-generation dermal filler that keeps them looking better even longer. In our experience, a typical Radiesse treatment produces immediate cosmetic improvement with results that last an average of one year or more, which is considerably longer than the former leading filler," says Dr. Ly, who has successfully treated over hundreds of Radiesse patients. "Patients today lead busy, active lives so they want a treatment that offers excellent results without a lot of effort, downtime or need for repeat injections."
Designed with safety, durability and longevity in mind, Radiesse is composed of micron-sized calcium-based particles in a water-based gel carrier that form a scaffold around which the body generates new collagen. According to Dr. Ly, this unique mechanism of action is responsible for tissue anchoring as well as preserving the augmentation. The filler is gently injected into the skin in small amounts with a very tiny needle and is particularly well suited for treatment of the wrinkles between the nose and mouth (nasolabial folds) and other facial aesthetic applications.
Dr. Ly goes on to explain: "Radiesse is raising the bar to become the new standard for the treatment of nasolabial folds because it delivers a safe and effective enhancement that stimulates new tissue growth and collagen deposition. This clinical response rebuilds the skin’s foundation so that wrinkles or folds treated with Radiesse maintain the aesthetic correction over the long term. Overall, Radiesse is a worthwhile investment that meets our patients’ demands, and often exceeds their expectations with high satisfaction."
