Skin Rejuvenation Procedure called Radiesse Vector Lifting by Dr Davin Lim.
RADIESSE is a wrinkle filler used to plump the skin. RADIESSE is injected through a small needle and placed under the skin. Immediately, this filler works to add volume under the skin and over time, the benefits of RADIESSE continue by stimulating your body’s own natural collagen. The natural results have been shown to last a year or more in many patients, making the treatment results both immediate and long lasting. In the way I perform the procedure, it last much longer than one year- because unlike other fillers such as Restylane or Juvederm, Radiesse stimulates your own collagen- this can give some patients a mini- face lift. RADIESSE is comprised of Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres suspended in an aqueous gel carrier.Once injected, it provides immediate volume and correction but continues to work by stimulating the body to produce its own natural collagen.
Over time, the gel is absorbed and the body metabolizes the CaHA microspheres leaving behind only your own natural collagen. It is this extra collagen in key area that gives a liquid face lift.
What other fillers does Dr Davin Lim use?
In the vast majority of times, I use fillers as a way to treat loss volume, and improve skin tone, in addition to treating acne scars. My favoured fillers are made by Allergan, and 90% of the time I use the Juvederm range of fillers, including Juvederm Voluma, Volift, Volbella and Ultra XC. For facial contouring, its Juvederm Voluma and Volift. For under the eyes, treating dark circles and fine work I prefer Juvederm Volbella. Another great product is Belotero, especially for fine work. I do use Restylane, not a great fan as I believe IMO that Juvederm is superior. I also prefer the feel of Juvederm – my own personal preference.
When do I use RADIESSE?
I use RADIESSE to rejuvenate hands, as an on label indication, but off label in the way I performed in this video. This dermal filler replenishes loss volume, but most importantly contains calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres. This is the key, as it stimulates the body’s immune response to produce collagen in the vector areas I inject. I often mix this with local anaesthetic as a dilution, but also it is more comfortable for the patient.
Thanks for watching this video, I will be performing a whole series of dermal filler injection procedures, using different products including Juvederm, Restylane, Emevel, and Belotero over the next few month. Thanks in advance for subscribing to this channel.
