As we age, our skin begins to lose volume as the skin’s support structures, like collagen and elastin, break down. This loss of structure can cause the skin to become loose or lax and contributes to the forming of facial wrinkles and folds. Farris Plastic Surgery offers Radiesse® injectable dermal filler treatments to patients looking for a non-surgical way to improve the appearance of facial wrinkles and folds and rejuvenate their appearance.

What is Radiesse?
Radiesse is an injectable dermal filler comprised of calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres that help stimulate the natural production of collagen in the body. Over time, the body breaks down the CaHA microspheres and the newly formed collagen is left behind to add structure to the skin and improve its overall quality. This is one of the heavier dermal fillers available and can be used to instantly restore facial volume that has been lost due to the aging process and improve the appearance of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds.
