What is Hyperdiluted Radiesse?
Hyperdiluted Radiesse is simply Radiesse that has been diluted/thinned out with a mixture of sterile saline solution and lidocaine. This makes it an easily spreadable biostimulator capable of remodeling skin over a larger area. When this diluted mixture is injected into areas of collagen loss, it triggers the body to produce new collagen and elastin. The result is a skin rejuvenating treatment with pronounced and visible smoother, firmer, younger-looking skin.
The benefits of this treatment are skin tightening and thickening, reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and crepiness. Treatment of the decolletage will also reduce the pigment from sun damage. Overall, skin tone, texture and elasticity are markedly improved.
Where Can It Be Used?
- Mid and lower face
- Neck lines and/or neck in patients with mild to moderate laxity
- Upper arms
- Buttocks with cellulite dimples (in patients with moderate to severe cellulite) to reduce to appearance to dimpling
- Above knees to address the knee lines from lax skin with aging
How Much Diluted Radiesse Is Needed?
Radiesse is available by the syringe, and, according to the current practice guidelines, treatment typically requires one syringe per area, 2-3 treatment sessions, then maintenance.
What Is The Downtime?
As with any filler injection, there can be some bruising, swelling and mild discomfort after the treatment. Most patients tolerated this treatment well and are very satisfied with their results. There can be a variable amount of bruising and swelling, which normally lasts up to a week.
How Many Treatments Are Needed?
Two to three treatment sessions are usually required to achieve the desired aesthetic effects. Two treatments are typical, though severe sun damage or severe skin laxity may require more. Treatments are spaced out 4-6 weeks apart. To maintain results one treatment every 12 months is recommended.
Hyperdiluted Radiesse can be used alone. However, when addressing areas with harder to treat concerns, such as the neck or chest, it is best to treat in combination with other tightening and resurfacing procedures, such as Ultherapy or radiofrequency Microneedling, because they work together to improve dermal collagen.
