Before you close your browser window and assume that you’ve visited the wrong website, we are actually going to talk about triangles today. And no, we’re not going to talk about geometry but rather aging for that matter.
Of Triangles and Pyramids
If you haven’t noticed, youthful looking faces are actually akin to inverted triangles and primarily composed of the following trio of components: high cheekbones, full cheeks, and a well-defined jawline. As one ages, the triangle of youth slowly becomes the pyramid of age though, that is when the cheeks start to lose volume, the jaw line sags, and the nasolabial folds (between the nose and mouth) begin to make their presence known.
Apart from gravity, the pyramid of age happens largely due to collagen loss in the skin due to aging and environmental elements.
How Radiesse Works
Generally, the pyramid of age can be restored through strategic placement of dermal fillers that can fill in volume loss in the cheeks, midface, and the jawline. While you may be confuse as to which fillers to choose, majority of our patients who want to restore their triangles of youth have benefited from Radiesse.
Radiesse is a dermal filler containing calcium-based microspheres hydroxylapatite (CaHA) suspended in a water-based gel that help stimulate the growth of collagen and fill in facial folds and wrinkles. It should be noted that what sets Radiesse apart from other fillers is that it does more than temporarily improve the appearance of folds but it can also help lead to permanent restoration of that naturally youthful look.
Results from Radiesse can last up to 18 months depending on the area treated, the amount of product used, and your body’s ability to break down the calcium particles.
