Does Radiesse Help Produce New Collagen
An alternative to traditional hyaluronic acid based fillers and Radiesse is Sculptra. Sculptra is not a typical filler in that the volume of product injected is very small compared to traditional products like Juvederm, Restylane, Perlane or Radiesse. The product works by creating a thin layer deep in the skin of microfine particles made out dissolvable stiches. This body surrounds this layer with new collagen to yield a very natural and significant plumping of the cheeks and frame of the face. It's actually called the Liquid Facelift because the product is so good at restoring your natural collagen.
So, if producing the body's own collagen is your goal, then you may want to consider Sculptra as your next filler choice. Check the link below for before and after photos.
