Voluma & Radiesse are deep-reaching, long-lasting dermal fillers used to fill scars and deeper wrinkles, add facial volume to hollow areas such as the cheeks, and can augment the chin, jaw line and temporal hollowness.
Voluma/Radiesse consist of a gel carrying calcium hydroxylapatite, which is found naturally in the body. Its needed to form collagen, so having a larger supply of it makes it easier for the tissues to produce more collagen. Voluma’s/Radiesse’s calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres form a structure underneath the skin layers, and new tissues grow between these.
Voluma/Radiesse offers immediate results that improve over time. Its effects can be seen in some patients for one year or longer. As with the other injectables offered by Dr. Berhane, the injection procedure typically takes 15 minutes at the most.
