How does it boost natural collagen production?
Collagen is a structural protein that is naturally produced by the body and it maintains the hydro-balance of the skin, keeps it revitalized, youthful, radiant and it provides it with volume. With time, however, the production of this important protein slows down and the skin starts to age. Radiesse 1.5ml can reverse that process because it contains Calcium Hydroxylapatite microspheres (CaHA) which are mixed with a special gel and applied on the treated areas via injection. The results are instant – the skin enjoys an immediate lifting and volumizing effect. Another process that takes place in the background is the stimulation of collagen production. Because of their shape and composition, the microspheres force the soft tissue to make more collagen. In that way, wrinkles and folds are immediately corrected and the collagen production process is naturally improved. The gel in Radiesse 1.5ml is biodegraded in about a year but the collagen which was formed with the help of this advanced skin filler does not go away.
