Aging can result in the loss of volume in the skin due to the decrease in the natural production of collagen. As skin loses its volume, facial lines and wrinkles begin to form emphasizing the effects of aging. Many people are looking for a way to improve the appearance of facial wrinkles and folds without undergoing a surgical procedure. Spa Black offers Radiesse® injectable dermal filler as a non-surgical treatment option to improve the appearance of moderate to severe facial lines and wrinkles. Radiesse® immediately adds volume to the treated area and stimulates the body’s natural collagen production for lasting results.

What is collagen?
Collagen is one of the most abundant proteins found in the body. It provides structure to bones, ligaments, muscles, tendons, and the skin. Collagen is an important component of the skin and is responsible for making skin look plump and voluminous. As our bodies go through the natural aging process, collagen begins to break down and the natural production of collagen decreases. As collagen levels decrease in the body, the skin begins to sag and lose its volume and wrinkles and fine lines begin to appear.
What is Radiesse®?
Radiesse® can be used to improve the appearance of moderate to severe facial lines and folds and to immediately restore volume to treated areas. This is one of the heavier dermal fillers and is comprised of calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres that stimulate the body’s production of collagen. Over time, Radiesse® is gradually absorbed by the body and the calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres are broken down by the body leaving behind natural collagen. Radiesse® can also be used to improve the signs of aging on the back of hands by restoring volume to the skin and reducing the appearance of veins and tendons. Effects of Radiesse® injections are immediately visible and natural looking. Results can last from one to three years depending on the patient, the intensity of the wrinkles and folds, and the area being treated.
