What is Radiesse (+) 1.5ml with Lidocaine?
Banish wrinkles and folds with Radiesse (+) 1.5ml with Lidocaine. This dermal injection acts on aging skin to restore volume to dermal tissues and correct skin depressions and sunken facial areas in the process. These results are prolonged as Radiesse (+) 1.5ml with Lidocaine stimulates new collagen growth at the site of implantation, which replaces the Radiesse filler for volumizing effects. Radiesse (+) 1.5ml with Lidocaine is supplemented with lidocaine, an anesthetic, for the reduction of injection-associated pain.
What is Radiesse (+) 1.5ml with Lidocaine is formulated to do?
The main component of Radiesse (+) 1.5ml with Lidocaine is calcium hydroxylapatite, a mineral that is naturally present in human bones and teeth. In Radiesse (+) 1.5ml with Lidocaine, this mineral is formed into microspheres that are then suspended in a gel carrier containing carboxymethyl cellulose. When implanted into the skin, the microspheres remain at the site of injection where they act as a scaffold for new collagen formation. Gradually, the gel is replaced by new collagen, which maintains the volume enhancement even as the carboxymethyl cellulose is resorbed and the calcium hydroxylapatite particles are phagocytized into ions. For this reason, Radiesse results have a great deal of longevity, lasting up to a year or more as shown in clinical studies. This version of Radiesse contains the anesthetic agent lidocaine to enhance patient comfort during the procedure.
Radiesse (+) 1.5ml with Lidocaine is manufactured by Merz Pharmaceuticals, a global pharmaceutical company that specializes in providing medical aesthetic treatments. This skin filler is of European origin.
