Two important components in how the skin changes over time are collagen and elastin, because they help keep facial lines and wrinkles at bay. Collagen and elastin both contribute to the skin’s strength and elasticity. Unfortunately, aging and environmental factors (think sun damage) make it harder for your body to produce these components. Reduced amounts of collagen and elastin can cause facial skin to wrinkle and sag, stealing from your youthful appearance.
How it works:
CaHA particles then integrate into your skin and create a “scaffold” that stimulates production of collagen and elastin. As the gel carrier breaks down, a firm network of collagen fibers forms.
Formed collagen and elastin replaces the correction provided by the gel carrier, smoothing lines and promoting renewed skin structure. Through these mechanisms, whether it’s improvement in the lower face or the hands, Radiesse provides a smooth, natural-looking result.

Most patients can benefit from Sculptra® to provide additional volume on the face and neck to help smooth wrinkles and folds.
The treatment area(s) may appear more volumized after your treatment due to swelling. The swelling should subside within a few days, making it appear as though nothing had happened. The effects usually begin to show after three weeks. After your Sculptra® injections, your results will continue to improve for about three months.
Sculptra® is FDA-approved to last up to two years but may last longer.
Sculptra® does not cause downtime; however, temporary swelling, redness, and bruising may occur.
