If you are someone who has wrinkles, lines, thinning skin or laxity in the neck area then you could be a candidate for hyperdilute radiesse treatment to the neck area.
Radiesse or Sculptra can be diluted to cover larger areas, treating lines and laxity on the neck, chest, and arms.
Radiesse® Dermal Filler
Radiesse dermal filler has been around for many years, approved by the FDA to treat nasolabial folds and other areas of the face. Radiesse consists of calcium hydroxyapatite (CaHA) microspheres suspended in an aqueous polysaccharide gel carrier. RADIESSE® is an FDA-approved dermal filler that encourages your body’s natural collagen production process and reduces volume loss, creating support and structure.
With time, Radiesse has become more popular and being used in a hyperdilute form. In this form it is used to improve skin quality, texture, tone, and firmness in the face, neck, decolletage and other areas of the body.
What is Hyperdiluted Radiesse?
It is simply Radiesse that has been diluted with a mixture of sterile saline and lidocaine mixture. This makes the product more easily spreadable to treat larger areas.
Where can it be used to treat?
- Neck lines or for mild to moderate neck laxity
- Mid and lower face
- Buttocks with cellulite dimpling
- Above the knees to address creping skin
Hyperdilute Radiesse can be used to improve the texture and firmness of skin. If there are other superficial skin concerns such as sun damage, sunspots, or fine lines other skin care treatments should be considered and may be recommended by your provider.
Radiesse is available in syringe form containing 1.5cc of product. Treatment typically requires one syringe per area. This can vary per patient and a consultation is recommended to determine how much of the product is needed to achieve the desired results.
On average 1-3 treatments are needed approximately 1 month apart from each other to achieve the desired results discussed between the patient and provider. Results may last 12-24 months, but each individual will have their own experience.
Following any injection treatment, patients can experience swelling, bruising, and some tenderness. Most patients tolerate this treatment well and are happy with the outcome. It is best to avoid blood thinners before receiving this treatment to reduce the increased risk of bruising and swelling.
