As we age, our collagen breaks down and our skin losses its elasticity. Recently, scientists have discovered that Radiesse, a volumizing filler used to plump sagging skin and wrinkles, when diluted Radiesse stimulates the production of collagen when injected into the skin. The hyperdiluted Radiesse acts as a scaffold that allows collagen to build upon.
Hyperdiluted Radiesse acts as a biostimulatory agent to stimulate collagen synthesis. When Radiesse is dilluted with normal saline or lidocaine it can be injected directly into the skin and builds up support.
When Radiesse is diluted in this fashion and is then injected into areas of collagen (and subsequent volume) loss it triggers the body to produce new collagen. But the difference is the type of collagen produced. There are three forms of collagen, Type I, Type II, and Type III. The original collagen in our bodies that is produced to provide the structural latticework that supports our skin is Type I collagen. That’s where the problem with aging occurs, as the production of this original form of collagen drops by one additional percentage point every year after our 20th birthday. That means by the age of 45, our skin is supported by 25 percent less collagen; that’s why it’s about that time when wrinkles, lines, and areas of volume loss start to show up.
Hyperdiluted Radiesse has now been shown to stimulate new production of Type I collagen. Type II and Type III collagen are inferior strains without the longevity and strength of the original form. That’s why hyperdiluted Radiesse is such a great new treatment option.
Any area that is sagging or is showing crepe-like skin can be changed with these treatments. You’ll see smoother, plump, firmer skin in all of the areas. From there, occasional maintenance every year or so maintains your plump, younger-looking skin.
I love Dr Yap! She is great and the botox I get there is incredible. I can go 8 months without needing to go back. Staff is great. Always will tell me about specials they are having. Thank you for taking care of me.
Dr. Yap recommended micro needling since I had significant scarring on my cheeks as a result of having cystic acne as a teenager as well as sun damage. I am now on my 4th micro needling session and the results have been amazing. My scarring has significantly been reduced and my skin is glowing.
I bought my wife a botox and filler package and they did a fantastic job. Erica really knows her stuff. We will be back for sure. My wife has never been so happy.
Very happy with Dr. Antony and True Radiance. I bought a groupon botox treatment. Dr. Antony did a great job administering it and he's really likeable. I will be back!
